Pros: "Not much goes wrong, reliable, comfortable, solid"

Cons: "luxury, expect higher repair cost. (not a con)"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I have owned this car since 2001, and really like it. It rides nice, has nice interior features all around, very stylish exterior. I get about 22 mpg in town which is above average and I use the regular unleaded. Since I've owned it, I have replaced all the shocks and struts, all hoses & gaskets, tires, air compressor, and one sensor inside the exhaust. This car has a TIMING CHAIN, not a belt that wears out and needs replacing. I do regular maintenance on the car to prolong its life, and the car still runs and drives like a new car. YES, repairs are expensive, but it is an infiniti, repairs should be expected to be higher than an average car. You don't buy a luxury car and expect low repair cost. In the 15 years I've owned this car, I have spent ONLY about 7000 to keep in running great. About 6ooo of that was the last 5 years, including upgrading to touchscreen stereo with phone, and remote start. It has been one of the best cars I have ever owned. Remember, you get what you pay for, and you have to pay to keep it."

Pros: "Comfortable - great ride. I like the sun/moon roof"

Cons: "Seats Worn. Lots of miles."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"Used as a commuter car for several years (to Fremont) - good gas and very reliable; then handed down to our son who used it for around town (Morgan Hill). Lots of miles - and still going. Besides the miles, I'd rate this as Fair on the Blue Book scale because the Interior is worn - seats need seat covers, sun damage in some areas and needs new tires. Exterior has some minor scratches. My husband passed away and my son now has his brand new car of his own. This car is just sitting and should be useful to someone. I just need to get rid of it ASAP!"

Pros: "Great ride, low maintenance"

Cons: "Only one cupholder"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"I've owned my I30 since 2007, bought it used w/ 75k on the clock. The Nissan V6 is bulletproof. 200k on it now with only minor repairs. The CV joints have been replaced twice, and it went through 3 starters in the first 3 years. My only complaint is the odd location of the only cupholder inside the center console."

Pros: "Price when new, reliability, performance"

Cons: "Air bag system, some services are expensive, mpg"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Much better value than BMW and MB. Similar cars at the time of new purchase cost 50% more. The car has been and is still very reliable. The car has had numerous air bag problems, at least six times since new. Some dealerships try to get you to spend a lot of money on various flushes and other services have been expensive. The car only gets around 15-17 mpg in-town driving."
