What was I thinking...
2018 INFINITI QX30
I bought the 2018 Infiniti QX30 on a whim because I thought it was fun, fast and sporty looking, and the ink blue looked pretty sweet. None of those were good reasons to buy a brand new $34K car when I was going to be putting 80 miles / day on it as a daily driver. Fast forward 2 years and 43K miles: We try to put a baby carseat in the back - it fit, but only if the front passenger … has their knees jammed (literally) into the dashboard. The stroller fit in the trunk, but took up ALL of the cargo space, so good luck if you need to get groceries. The paint scratches if you look at it funny (I got suckered into an extended warranty that, surprisingly, didn't cover it when the technician who applied the "protective coating" must have done so with a rough cloth because I had many spiderweb scratches from there on out). The transmission is clunky/jerky, not very good at low speeds or stop and go traffic. Gas mileage is decent at 23 mpg, but requires 93 premium gasoline, which even in this economy is always well over $3 a gallon. The cabin space itself feels cramped, and there is no place to put anything unless it is a standard issue bottle of water. There is a change compartment where the USB and power outlets are, 2 small cupholders, and a teeny console, also a very small glove box. The worst is that there is no place to put your sunglasses up by the rearview mirror! Finally, the "sporty suspension" creates a bumpy ride and super loud road noise. It comes as no surprise that Infiniti dropped production of the QX30 in mid-2019. They should really just issue a refund to those who purchased. I just traded mine in to go back to a CR-V and it is the BEST.
