1998 Infiniti I30 3.0L VQ30DE from North America
Torque converter and trans axle seal replaced at 124000 due to leak.
Had rear main seal replaced since the torque converter was out.
Had both valve cover gaskets replaced since they were old and leaky.
The car had been trouble free for the first 6 years I owned it. Within the last 10 months I had this work done to it. The costs were high to fix these things because of the labor time.
Starter replaced by myself at around 110000 miles.
Other repairs made were from normal wear and tear and were few.
This car is identical to the Nissan Maxima, and can be bought at a lower price.
This car drives smooth with a very refined and strong engine. Could have used better cabin noise isolating materials.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
