Thank you for your post. So far its been great. The car was previously titled in the state of New Jersey. They have front and rear license plates so I am left with two unsightly holes in the front bumper because PA only has a rear plate. I bought a chrome Infinity plate. I am trying to figure out to to mount it properly because it doesn't match the holes in the bumper. Otherwise it's great -- once you get used to the wide turning radius. I love the heated steering wheel. Have a good weekend.

i am new to this forum,
i am looking into buying 2000 infinit i30, it has 120k miles, the car seems to be in good shape, clean title, no major mechaninc problems exposed, few dents here and there, color is biege,
seller asking for $7000, i am just worried about the high mileage and whether infinit has expensive maintenance?????

As far as I know, Infinitis, except the QX56 are pretty much rock-solid and I wouldn't be worried about the high mleage of the car.
Are you sure $7000 is Edmunds TMV and/or Kelly Blue Book value? To me the prices seem a little high but I haven't looked up the blue book on a 2000 I30 in a while.
Maitenance costs for my I35 haven't been too bad, even though it is dealership maintained.

Thanks for your reply
the Private party value on KBB is 7200,
Edmunds.com Used Car Customized Appraiser priced it 6,582
i will bargain with the owner and hopefully convince him to sell around $6500.

I've noticed that KBB values tend to be higher than Edmunds TMV so a good medium would be something in between them.
There is next to no activity in this board anyways as the I35 has been discontinued and apparently a supply of certified/used ones are fairly rare. (my local Infiniti dealer only has 1 certified I35 and 1 non-Certified I30)

I have been trying to sell my 2002 Infiniti I35 since the beginning of July - have gotten hardly any calls and the ones who want to see it never show up when they say they will.
What am I doing wrong? The price is commensurate with book value.
It is a beautiful car, but I can't keep it since I moved to NYC. My parents have the car and aren't too happy they have to deal with the selling and keeping the car in the garage.
If anyone wants to buy this car it is in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. It is Black/black leather/all luxuries.
Help if you can with some tips on selling it. THANKS.

Have you tried selling it to an Infiniti dealer? Depending on your milage, an Infiniti dealer would have an easier time selling it than you would have therefore they may be more willing to buy from you.
Also you could list it on CraigsList or eBay or something.
And if nothing else works, you may have to try a price cut. But I'd hit up the NYC Infiniti dealerships first and see if they want to buy the car from you.

Thanks for the dealer idea.
The car is in PA - I will give that a try.
Craiglist is where I have it and other places.
THANK YOU for the reply.

One other thing.... Even if you are asking book price.. If you aren't getting calls, then your price is likely to high..
That goes for just about anything...
#289 of 293 Below Book Price

Got a call today.
They wanted it but a thousand below book price.
What do you think?
