From Infiniti press: As part of Infiniti's award-winning model line, the Infiniti J30 personal luxury sedan continues its legacy of performance and distinctive styling, while providing traditional luxury appointments worthy of a flagship luxury sedan.
A distinguished model of the #1 Carline in the 1996 J.D. Power and Associates Customer Satisfaction Index Study SM, the Infiniti J30 is positioned between the flagship Q45 and the I30 luxury sedan.
An advanced 3.0-liter DOHC 24-valve V6 engine is the primary element of the drivetrain for the rear wheel drive J30. Generating 210 horsepower, the engine provides ample power to the standard electronically controlled 4-speed automatic (overdrive) transmission (with lockup torque converter). Special care was paid to the transmission, fitting it with an interactive engine/transmission control, which momentarily retards the ignition timing to assure silky smooth, shock-free shifts.
Not only does the J30 provide exceptional power, but also superior handling. The J30's advanced 4-wheel suspension utilizes a precision front strut-type design and Infiniti's own unique three-link rear suspension provides both excellent handling and ride comfort. Stabilizer bars on both the front and rear reduce body movement when cornering, and subframes for the suspension help reduce noise and vibration.
The J30 engine includes the On-Board Diagnostic System II (OBD-II) -- designed to meet rigid federal standards. This system enables the J30 to constantly analyze its electronics and emissions systems, diagnosing potential problems as they occur.
