#2 of 1851 Loner car program
Sep 01, 2000 (6:32 pm)
Infiniti's loner car program works as follows. If you own an Infiniti. (It does not matter if you bought it new, used, inherited, or found it by the side of the road one day.) As long as you own or are currently leasing it. You will have an Infiniti made avail;able to you for any scheduled service appointment. If your dealer is refusing to honer this program call consumer affairs and report them. Infiniti corprate takes a very dim view of dealerships causing unhappiness in their customers.
#3 of 1851 Loaner Car Program

My dealer in NJ told me that loaners were indeed available for oil changes, but that they ask that we try to make time to wait for any appt under 1 hour. He went on to say, if I needed the car, he would certainly make one available.
I've had a 2001 I30t for 2 weeks now with 1000 mile so far. It's great except for a couple of factory defects. Faulty sunroof and unbalanced headlights.
#4 of 1851 Millenium Jade
Sep 01, 2000 (8:45 pm)
Unlike titanium (silver) which is a classic color (i just traded in my silver '91 camry and it still looked good), millenium jade is a flavor of the month. it reminded my wife and me of green shag carpeting from 1975--in now, but what will you think in a year or two. (we felt the same way about the autumn bronze.)
#5 of 1851 Loan Car Program
Sep 01, 2000 (10:22 pm)
Folks, here is the loan car program as outlined by Infiniti. Complimentary Infiniti Service Loan Car available during scheduled maintenance appointments, at participating retailers. Subject to availability. Available during the 4 year/60,000 mile basic coverage.
Each dealer has their own version of the program. If you schedule your appointment ahead of time, and the dealer has cars available to loan, you should get a loaner car. Sometimes there is a problem, and the loaner fleet is used up, they can't loan a car. This happens when someone comes in for an oil change (45 minute job), and takes the loan car for the entire day. It makes the car scarce for the dealer to give out for the next appointment. Just be patient and understand that sometimes there is a problem and you can't get a loaner car. If you need the car, ask if you can make your appointment for another time when you can schedule a loaner car. If you work with your service consultant, they will work with you.

My wife and I just bought a 2001 Infiniti I30 at Northside Infiniti in Houston. The entire process was a delight. Drive out was $28000+TT&L and this car is loaded. Would have paid about $1000 less for Acura, without Sun roof, and it would have been a 2000 model. The staff at Northside were great. The Acura folks were an embarrassment. If you're looking for a great luxury car that should last for years, check out the Infiniti.

What exactly do you mean when you say "this car is loaded"? Did you get the "t" or the "l"? Did you get a spoiler? Does the car have a nav system? 6-cd changer? etc, etc. The specifics are appreciated.
Anyone out there recently purchase a 2001 i30t with Nav? What are they gonig for?

Croth: All 30's are luxury, unless you go T, which is adifferent suspension. Did not get nor ask for a spoiler. 6 disc cd changer was,nt an option, but yesterday I went to Mobile One and believe it or not, they do not offer one for Infiniti. Said talk to the dealer. Loaner program was fully explained and is available for things as simple as an oil change. Just call ahead and it should not be a problem. This is my first Infiniti product and I feel very comfortable with them.
#9 of 1851 In California
Sep 02, 2000 (10:01 pm)
Hello All and thanks for post such great information about the I30. I too am considering the purchase of the I30t. I visited the dealer in the San Jose area and the window sticker was $34,523. It had the touring package, 6 CD system, spoiler, rear sunshade and traction control.
Does anyone know what would be considered a reasonable offer for this car? Cars direct has it for $31,065 and the invoice is $30,333. With all the talk about incentives and dealer hold back, I just want to know what everyone else is paying.
Anyone know of special financing or lease rates Infiniti is offering? The only incentive I have found is in California you can choose a gift (hotels, watches, etc.) when you buy or lease an I30. It doesn't cost Infiniti anything except mention in their advertising. Once you buy or lease the I30 you visit a web site to claim your gift and the web site gets info on you.
Any help would be appreciated.

my father leases a 2000 I30L for either $527 or $572 a month, im not sure which. thing is, he paid for 18,000 miles a year, not the standard 12,000, and he will probably go over the 54,000 mark, as when he turned in his last car, a 97 aurora, it had 65,000 miles. i think $34,523 is what Motor Trend said is the max price for this car.
