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

"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."
"Bought the car in 2000 with 36000 miles (lease turn-in) currently has 340300. Wonderful service replaced the alternator, front struts, radiator that is all. It still has original water pump. First time plugs were changed 312000 miles. Gas mileage went down after changing the plugs. Paint is still great. All interior is good except drivers seat."
"I am the original owner and predominant driver of this car with with over 430,000 miles, this car still runs beautifully. The engine and the transmission have never been opened. Aside from normal maintenance the only major work has been one new exhaust system, and replace the front support bar for the engine due to rust and 3 windshields due to pitting from the road. All other components are original. I will be driving this car until it tells me , no more! It is still comfortable and has a lot of power. I have most certainly gotten my monies worth."
