I cannot be for sure if all i30t Infiniti's were as crap as mine,but mine was overall pretty poor.Steering was pretty bad when you turn going 25 mph.The entire car tends sort of throw all it's weight to the opposite direction of the turn.I know plenty of cars just like the i30 that do not have this problem.The seats were not comfortable for a luxury car,interior wasn't all to great.The exterior design is really boring.There are TONS of cars that are a whole lot better than the i30.

Update 9/29/16 - Terrible investment. Update 4/12/16 - I'm on my 6th set of rotors and calipers. They are JUNK! This car goes through rotors and calipers in 2 years. I'll never buy another Nissan/Infiniti Very good looking car. I purchased it new. We noticed that the car does not handle well. When you go into a turn, it feels like the front tires are beginning to slide. I purposely drove it into a corner unusually fast ( plenty of recovery space) and the car does slide badly. I took it back to the dealership and they said it was perfect. Well, if that's perfect, don't expect me to purchase another infiniti. We have replaced the brakes including calipers and rotors numerous times. Calipers freeze up often. It will stop on a dime, but having to replace the brakes every 15,000 to 20,000 miles is beyond excessive. I'll never purchase another Infiniti/Nissan.

Great car! But rust issue on front motor/radiator mount

Purchased in 2000 when Infiniti launched new redesign of I30t model. Car was originally my Dad's, now I own it w/ 255K mi. Had its share of wear and tear being 12 years old and driven on avg over 100 mi/day commuting.There is a flaw with this car and that is the rust that builds on the radiator mount under the car. This mount also connects with the front motor mount. Car has been garage kept. I know of others that have seen this also.I can feel its affect on the car's performance and handling. Its only b/c of this I am now looking for another car. Cost to repair isn't worth the value of the car. If choosing to buy, note to look for this. However the car is great. I will truly miss it.

I purchased my I30 in 2003 with 47K miles on it. It now has 195K miles on it & I expect to get at least 250K without trying. Besides replacing brakes, tires, & battery, the only major issue I've had was a transmission rebuild at 150K. The car still runs & looks like new - I still enjoy driving it today as much as I did when I bought it. I took in for service a couple of years ago & was given a 2010 G35 as a loaner car. I was expecting to be sold on trading up, but I was dissapointed in the ride & overall feel of the G35. I couldn't wait to get back into my I30. Also, the last time I put new tires on it, the serviceman couldn't believe how old it was & how good it looked.

I recently got this car from my dad with 168,000 miles on it, and those miles were put on aggressively; my dad has a lead foot. He traded it for an M37. There are some minor issues: oxidized headlight lenses, slightly rough transmission, a few burned out bulbs. A few months ago the radiator fell out of its rusted housing, but not the car. Besides that, there have been no major issues. The interior is still in great condition, some signs of wear on the drivers seat. Some rust issues; in the top of the wheel well and underneath the car (not noticable unless you're jacking it up) but thats my dads fault for not washing off road salt. If you take care of it, it will take care of you.

Bought this car with 77k miles. Up until 97k there wasn't a problem. At 98k I needed all new wheel bearings, radiator was leaking, trans. Is leaking. Did tun up and air filter. With discounts from mechanic friend, I spent $800. Now, at 108k I notice a little slip in the trans. Between 1st and 2nd.

I bought this car for $6500 it has been a pretty good car, i have had to make a few repairs as soon as i topped 100k, such as a new starter, alternator, O2 censor, battery,brakes, spark plugs and wires, headlights, fuses, cv axle, that may seem like a lot but at 100k things are bout ready to be changed out, and a really good thing about this model is that is has a timing chain instead of a belt, which makes it a much easier fix.

Got this used w/ 200k miles. Engine light was on, showing P0430, P0400, and something else. The car is pretty rough mechanically, and needs a lot of work. The engine and transmission are still great, after 10 years and 200k miles. I changed the spark plugs and the check engine light went off, only to come back on a day later. Has weird exhaust noise (prob not the cat conv.) and the struts were completely shot (got those replaced) and I think the mass airflow sensor is bad. A common problem on this car. Overall, it's a nice vehicle, but if you're buying used, plan on spending some money on repairs. At least $1000...

I purchased this vehicle after hearing a friend rave about how much they loved theirs. I previously owned a Mercedes and was afraid I might compare and come up short. No way. This car has exceeded my expectations. I have 145,000 miles on it and have had only minor repairs (battery, alternator, brake pads, front struts)in addition to regular tune up and oil changes. It has developed a little "attitude" in the cold weather after sitting idle all night, I have to warm it up several minutes before driving otherwise it will stall, can't seem to find anyone who knows what is causing that.

Bought new and, even though I am not a "car" person, thought it was the best looking car I had ever seen. It has not cost me anything more than batteries or tires in all of its years. Under warranty the moon roof needed repair and one of the catalytic converters (SES) needed replacement. However, the car now has 97K and has needed a new radiator and another catalytic converter (there are 4), has developed a transmission leak, needs a new starter and the AC has stopped working (all in 2 months!!!). I really like this car but it is time to move on...

I turned in my 2005 Infiniti FX 35 for the Infiniti I30t with 65335 miles (Nov. 28, 2009). I was impressed with the handling and comfort. However, still adjusting to the "low" height and sports car feel.

I bought the car used with 30k miles and had no problems until I reached 55k and the drivers electric seat stopped working. At 70k the ignition coils went out and at 90k the starter had to be replaced. I looked on some blogs and found all of these to be common problems. I see that at 100K I should expect all my instrumentation lights to go out and the check engine light to keep coming on. I have spent over $3500 in repairs so I'm now looking to buy a new car that will be under a warranty. I can't afford to keep paying for costly repairs on a once great car.

I leased an Infiniti FX 35; however, I returned and wanted to stay with the Infiniti brand. I purchased the I30t with 65,500 miles and the vehicle is not even broken in, yet. I am the second owner and could tell the vehicle was garage kept and hardly driven. The vehicle does sit-low (but I did go from an SUV to car). If you're thinking about buying one, do- it!

I purchased the car from a buddy of mine with 170K on it. I noticed that the belts needed changing right away and wasn't too sure about the ride, but was told the suspensions may need to be replaced in the next couple of years. Since I have owned the I30t have noticed some deserting things, such as the CD player not working a grinding in the front caliper and jerking from the engine on occasion.

Nice car, but bad reliability.

I bought this car about a year ago with 45k miles on it and have had problems ever since. Upon purchase I had to replace the belts (which is to be expected for a 7 year old car). What I didn't expect was the catalytic converter to fail (which Infiniti covers up to 80k miles), the A/C compressor to fail, all 6 coils needed to be replaced, the muffler was banging the bottom of the car and the CD player stopped working. At this point, about $2500 has been spent on repairs. Luckily we bought an extended warranty. My other car is a Nissan Altima and I really like it. But, I doubt I'll be buying another Infiniti.

You will spend, oh yes.

Traded in an older Camry for the Infiniti because my wife thought it was "ugly." However in 4 years I spent less on that car then I've spent in the past 9 months on the I30. Had it checked out before we bought it, all systems were a go. However within 2 months the alternator went out. Shortly after that the car started misfiring, and it started running poorly and jerking when at a stop light. Had the engine coils replaced along with the spark plugs and a full maintenance check + fluids flush. Also have had to replace both rear and front brakes. So 9 months and at least $3,000 later, hopefully we are done for awhile with spending money on it.

Car purchased new. At 50000 car began to self destruct, power seat, alternator, SES light, new brakes at 55K, transmission slip, engine ping. All service at dealer. At 60K SES light on again, brake calipers bad. > $4000 in repairs in 2 years. Trade in at dealer on new MSRP $40000 = $5000 before today's 2 grand. Am I still a happy customer? NO! Like the new G35, but would I buy another Infiniti? Doubt it.

The Infiniti I30t is a very dependable car and very fun to drive. I am the second owner of the vehicle. When I bought it the car had 56,000 mi and now has 150,000 mi. Because it is a touring edition to do ride comfort and turning radius because of the stiff suspension. The car is very safe. I t-boned someone and the car crushed in all of the right places. Thank God it wasn't totalled. I am still driving and I drive it like I hate it. I plan to get over 300,000 mi. out of this car.

This car is just crammed full of features, and yet it doesn't look cluttered: everything makes sense, and everything works the way it should. It may look Japanese generic on the outside, but I'm grateful for the restraint: I'm not anxious to be noticed, especially in a car where sudden bursts to 90-plus mph are so effortless. It's not quite as tossable as, say, the current Infiniti G, but it's a good way to get into the Infiniti Experience for next to nothing.

Took 00 I30t from wife, for whom I just bought silky-smooth, quiet 07 Lexus ES 350 because she hates noisy, bumpy I30 that she drove 6 yrs. I love this deal! (So does she!) I value perf, handling, luxury & style, which I30 has plenty. High wind noise is no issue because I play loud metal on excellent Bose stereo. Wife treated it like baby, garaged it, so it's immaculate. After recent extensive prev maint, fixing silly trash can lid dash compartment, & installing hi-perf tires, it's LIKE NEW. Other than bad alt & occaisional coil misfire (we replaced all coils), it has been very reliable. Interior is spacious and luxurious. My car status is now excellent! I plan to drive it many more years.

Bought my car new and mostly liked the quality. Had the brake trouble listed in the forum and it was corrected early on. Since 50,000 (now 55,000) the car is like a "problem time bomb", alternator, power seat, oxygen sensor. All expensive repairs. these are all problems reported in the problems solution and reported in service bulletins. Should I buy another Infiniti? I expected more for the price I paid. I didn't think cars failed at 50,000 miles anymore.Should the manufacturer take some responsibility for their product? I think so.

I just got this car a couple of weeks ago from my mom. It has 110K on it which obviously means that it's not in perfect condition. However, the engine and tranny are excellent and you can't tell whether it has 110K or 60K. The other parts aren't so perfect. The sunroof doesn't work properly, and one of the tweeters from the sound system, which is excellent by the way, is fading out. Nevertheless you'd expect something like that from a car with 110K on it. Other than that the car is awesome. I need to do some regular maintenance on it and it'll be perfect. Just make sure to fill it up with premium gasoline because the performance is much better and according to Infiniti it's required.

I bought the I30t with 47K miles 2 1/2 years agoI was very happy with it until about a year ago (100K) and it has cost me about $3K since then with the latest being the ign. coils ($1K). It also has developed rattles and a strange metallic clunking in the right rear on uneven pavement (dealer can't find - DUH!). I still like the ride and power, but for $3000 a year in maintenance and squeaks,rattles, and clunks, I'm starting to question whether I wouldn't be better off with something that gets better gas mileage and uses 87 octane.

Bought the car slightly used about 12k miles and it has performed very well. Unfortunately it was totaled this month in a roll over front end crash and I walked away with a few cuts but fully intact. Car appealed to me for dependability. Body style slightly boring sedan. Loved auto seats and stereo system -though in dash 6 disc changer would be preferable.

Infiniti has a new customer for life. As long as they keep putting out great performers. One issue with check engine light (computer reprogram) the dealer took care of free of charge. Keep the premium fuel in, there's only a few cents diffrence and you avoid the pinging as posted earlier. This car is great for the family. I can't wait to buy my G35X!

Over all a very good experience. Good power, smooth acceleration, good looks in and out. Minor problems- dash lights go in and out, light in dash clock out all together, and mass airflow meter has gone out 2 times (first time to fix was about $600, the second time dealer took care of). These minor problems have been recent( at 115k miles +).

My fiancee and i just purchased this vehicle and i have to say that this was a very wise purchase for the both of us. We are both full time students with a 4 year old daughter, so reliability was our biggest concern. It handles very well and the comfort is mind twisting. My only dislike was that the body style could have been a little bit wider for my liking but it will due for the meantime.

I love my I30 except for one significant problem. Pinging/detonation. Frequently when I give it substantial gas on accleration I get pinging. I run premium gas and have talked with the dealership. They indicated they could try cleaning the injectors but there weren't any guarantees this would fix the problem. I would not buy a 2000 model year again. Go up to at least a 200X model that has the 3.5 liter motor and higher horsepower. I think they improved the computer program to fix this problem and allow the car to run on regular gas.

I was forced to trade a Tahoe LT to get something with better economy ( I have a sizable commute thru Baltimore). It started out OK, but slowly deteriorated to become a vehicle I can't wait to get rid off. No more Infiniti's for me - EVER.There's this "clicking noise in the climate control ( fan at lowest setting ). AFTER I got this car I found out. Infinity "fixed" it, nope. I'll never be suckered into a "premium" Japanese auto again ( unless it's a Lexus ).

This car has been best value of any of the cars I have purchased in the past. (under $30K) Besides being priced fair, it has every add-on that one could want without having to pay an extra. Repairs have non-existant or covered by the warrenty. Looks are classy and clean, does not show its age in the styling changes that other vehicles do each couple of years. I will buy another one in the future.

After 6 months of research, I bought a 2000 I30 with 56,000 on it. Got it for a steal, though in retrospect its a good thing its still under warrenty. Next week Infiniti is paying to have a new transmission put in . (Though they tell me this is SO rare they have to order it in from Japan). And today I discovered safety glass in one of the rear trim pieces (some with blood on it, indicating an accident). All in all though, I really coulnd't be happier. Its got a ton of bells and whistles, is dead quiet on the freeway, and gets decent mileage. Everyone who sees it tells me how classy it looks. Love the clock in the dash. Give it a good hard look.

The I30 has been my best vehicle ever. Four years + 3months of ownership and I have never had a warranty issue or mechanical breakdown. I replaced the tires at 33000. Oil changes every 3K, transmission oil at 30K, Cooling system at 30K. It jumps into traffic, rides like a dream. Why should I ever sell it or trade it?

I have had my 2000 Infiniti I30t for 7 months now; it had 46,000 miles when I bought it. however when I took it to the Infiniti dealer for repeated check engine light they made me buy an $18 gas cap to eliminate the light problem rather than they fix it, Infiniti’s so called bumper to bumper warranty was like fender to fender, oh by the way their life time warranty on the paint is a big lie also, front end clicking noise was a concern as well, Infinite consumer affairs was not a big help either, and Infiniti will try so hard not to honor their bumper to bumper warranty.

Hesitant to purchase w/ 76k, but have not had any problems yet. This car has enough power and mechanic says it will go 200k w/regular maintenance. Perfect realtor car! Purchased for $13k out the door and will buy pre owned luxury before brand new mid line again. Wish it had navigation which is very rare on these cars. Priced better than Lexus with even par quality. Performance with decent MPG. Transmission is as smooth as could be.

I bought this car used. It is a great car. I love it. It has everything I wanted: sunroof, 6 cd changer, leather interior, rear spoiler, great v6 engine, good mpg's, sports car ride, great look. What makes this a great used car is its great reliability and lower resale value. It can be had for thousands less than other comparable cars (Lexus ES, Avalon, Acura TL, BMW, MB). I always buy used and long term reliability is the key to buying used. The last 2 cars I owned have gone over 200k miles (Infiniti & Maxima). This car will do that easily. The Infiniti I30 is without a doubt the best used value in the upscale sedan class.

I've only had my 2000 I30t for 1 1/2 weeks. I can only enjoy the Bose Stereo System when I'm traveling on a perfect newly paved road, other road types drown out the awesome stereo system. Don't quite understand why Infiniti would put so much emphasis on no wind noise and totally forget about those noisy tires.

Bought this car 1 year old with 29k miles. Exceptional car overall. Ride and handling are great. Comfort is superb. Gets about 27 mpg. A couple of small problems. Had two incidents where the check engine light came on - both burned out oxygen (O-2) sensors, both replaced under warranty. At 74k miles the motor or switch on the rear sun shade has just gone out - no manual override. Also, I am not a fan of the VR tires. While they may increase handling capability, they are noisy, rough, and have a relatively short tread life. Overall the car is great and the problems to this point have been minor.

My previous vehicle was a 1995 Mercedes Benz C220, and I cannot find the words to even begin a comparison between the 2 cars. The Infiniti I30 is spacious and powerfully built, yet nimble and swift. It includes more standard features than I have ever seen in any other luxury brand, and its 200-Watt Bose 7 Speaker sound system (including woofer) combined with the best V6 in the world prove that my previous experience with luxury cars will forever fall short of the I30. The Infiniti's price is lower than most of its competitors yet it outperforms nearly all of them, in every respect!

Total luxury for a low price.

I just got my Infiniti 2 days ago, and the first time I was in it I knew that this car was apart from the rest. I used to have a Pontiac Grand Prix but then I got the Infiniti and I saw a big difference. The ride is compeletly different from the Pontiac. It's smooth quite, and luxurious. I just love the 3.0-liter 227-hp. V6 engine. It's so POWERFUL for a front-drive V6 sedan. As much as the car is powerful and luxurious, it's also safe with dual front and side airbags and 4-wheel ABS. Other things that I love about this sedan is the power rear sunshade, sunroof, power driver's and passanger's seat and the Bose audio system. This car is worth every penny.

I have owned this vehicle for 3 years, with only a oxygen sensor replacement performed outside of the regular service intervals. The vehicle is perhaps the most comfortable car I have owned out of the 30 years I have driven - quiet, compliant suspension, perfect climate control and not too soft or firm seats. Engine performance and economy is exceptional for a 3.0 liter V6. Stereo performance is oustanding. I find the styling to be bland, but this is forgivable in a car that has to be one of the best values on the road. The fact that dealer service lives up to it's reputation is frosting on the cake.

Good car, but not great. Does most things ok, but could be better. Ride is harsh, feel every bump and imperfection in the pavement. Transmission frequently slow to downshift (sometimes feels like 0 to 60 in 8 minutes). Big turning diameter is frustrating. Fortunately, it is reliable. I find it difficult to find a really comfortable seating position for both the wheel and the gas pedal.

I've had absolutely no problems w/my vehicle at all. It's a very reliable piece of machinery and it's very well put together. The car gets good gas mileage and has good speed/get up and go. the dealership staff has also helped in making the difference. Infiniti's customer service is the best I've ever encounted.

Takeing trips makes it fun and we can fit five screaming college students comfortably, with an awesome bose system.

I have been very satisfied, now almost a year, with this car. I could not find a better value in this class, and I looked at the usual suspects - Lexus, Audi, Lincoln LS, Acura, etc. - before deciding on the I30. Reading some professional reviews, it seems to me there is a bias against this car due to similarities w/ Maxima. But it provides more refinement, nice luxury features and better styling. I wholeheartedly recommend!

I30 I like it!

This was my first step up to this class of car. I have never been much of a performance buff, preferring comfort of ride. I wanted a Pontiac Grand Prix, but couldn't stomach the reliability ratings, so a friend pointed me towards the Japanese luxury cars. I found a great deal used and I love it. It has a great ride, and I just have to step on the gas once in a while to feel the power. Engine is sooo smooth, and the braking feels very solid. I just love the luxury/performance combination.

I would consider this vehicle Very Good to Excellent. It is roomy, handles as good as other cars I have owned. But, although there are a number of creature comforts, I believe that the engineers who design the Infiniti's don't ever own or ride in them.

As a first-time buyer of an entry-level luxury sedan, I shopped around before buying my I-30. After taking it for a test drive, I was sold. It has more room than anything else in the segment (both inside and in the trunk). It has more power than all except the most "performance oriented" cars. It has a smooth ride, better warranty, AND IT COSTS THOU$ANDS LESS!!

I have owned two I-30's.This 2000 and a1996. Both have been the most reliable car I have ever owned. I never have had to take my car in for warranty work with the exception of last month on vacation. On the way to Sea Island Ga. a signal light came on and called for "check engine soon". Since I was on vacation I wasn't anxious to take time to have this checked. I found Atlantic Infinity in Jacksonville Fl. They put the car on the computer diagnostic equipment. They found nothing serious but the chip in my car needed to be rerun. They did this and loaded new data from Infinity. They washed my car. There was no charge for this. Just Great service.

I've been a long-time Maxima loyalist, attracted mostly by a good ratio of luxury to performance, and adequate head room since I'm > 6 ft. The I30 was a nice step-up, I had everything I loved about the Maxima with a bit more snob-factor and better service at the dealership. I've been very happy...
