I’m sitting here waiting for a 3rd party to finish a PPI on a 2000 Infiniti I30. It’s got 85,000 miles, seems to be in reasonably ok shape, and we can probably pick it up for around $4000. It’s boring as hell (it’s literally beige) but it should be safe, reliable, and it’s fairly well-equipped. Perfect for a 16y/o girl who gives no shits about cars. It’s also peppy for what it is.
Update: We went ahead and got it. We’ll pick it up tomorrow after the dealer puts a new set of tires on it.
