Summary:

Affordable and dependable luxury

Faults:

Have experienced a intermittent loss of power to certain electrical components, but these were fixed by pressing down firmly on the fuses.

Sunroof cable broke @ 90,000, but I was able to purchase the repair kit from Infiniti for under $150 and had a friend install it for another $100.

The leather near the driver's side window is cracking, but this is Texas and the heat can be brutal. I just keep her in a covered garage when possible.

General Comments:

I absolutely love this car. She has been a dream and still drives wonderfully at her advanced age. I recommend doing a full check before buying used, but if it checks out, stick to the recommended maintenance schedule and you shouldn't have any problems.

I own a 94 J30 and am having serious problems with the electrical system. The whole system will shut itself off completely when it feels like it. you won't get any electrical anything to happen when it's doing this. it makes a noise while it's off. don't know what to do.

Presently, the tachometer jumps up and back down which causes a surging sensation while driving.

One rear window and the sunroof both stick, but are usable.

I must say I have to agree with you. I recently purchased a 1995 Infiniti J30t, I love it and I swore after purchasing it, I would never own another car aside from an Infiniti. The only thing I don't like about the car, is the amount or road noise it throws. Other than that I love it.

It handles like a dream, rides like a Lincoln. The surroundings are great. The seating is so comfortable.

I have never heard an engine run as smooth and quiet as this one. The car has a lot of power for a four door sedan. Gas mileage is great. I have gotten about 19mpg in the city, I made a recent 400 miles one way trip to Kansas and got 26mpg on the highway.

I recommend the Infiniti J30 to everyone. It truely is the best car I have ever owned. I have always owned sports cars. I owned a Jaguar XJ-S, the Infiniti puts the Jaguar to shame. What amazes me, is that the Infiniti is much more luxurious than the Jaguar was and the Jaguar was a $50,000 automobile where I bought this J30 for only $16,800.

To sum it up, marks I give the car on a scale of 1-10... I give it an 11!!!
