Infiniti J30: Caring for the Car’s Interior
Greasy fries, spilt coffee, sticky ketchup, mud, gravel, dust, sand—these could have already settled deep into the fibers of your Infiniti J30's carpet. If you leave the carpet untouched and uncleaned, it'll only be a matter of time before some funky smell would linger inside. This could easily turn into your worst nightmare. It takes more than just good carpet cleaning to make sure that the cabin is spiff and fresh. Here's a short list of the stuff you should do to properly care for your Infiniti's interior:
- Suck in dirt, dust, and moisture from every corner of the vehicle using a vacuum.
Vacuum the floor mats, seats, and carpet. Make this a habit. Rid the interior of caked-on dirt, dust, and moisture. You have to remove the floor mats, so you could beat off dust and dirt or shake them out before you start to vacuum. To make sure that every spot is covered, push back the seats so that you can reach through the narrow spaces and tiny gaps—around the pedals, between the seats and the carpet, and the foot wells. Don't forget to clean the vents, console, door panels, dashboard, and the car upholstery using the handheld vacuum. Also keep the trunk clean and organized.
- Use the right type of cleaner for the upholstery and carpet of your Infiniti.
It doesn't start and end all with the vacuum. To keep the surfaces not only clean but also well protected, you have to use a special type of cleaner. The cleaner will get rid of dirt and moisture that can ruin the upholstery and carpet and cause their colors to fade. You have to get the right cleaner for the material or type of surface. If your car has leather seats, for instance, the cleaner or conditioner should be made safe for this material to prevent smudges and tears. Plastic, vinyl, rubber, and other materials should likewise be treated using the right type of cleaning and detailing products. The cleaner will provide a much deeper clean. It won't allow moisture to set in and won't attract mold and mildew growth.
- Keep the dash and console safe from harsh UV rays.
Cleaning the dash, deck, console, and other surfaces of the vehicle isn't enough. Other than removing dirt, they'll also need some sort of protection against harmful sun exposure. They have to be treated with protectant. This can be done every month. When cleaning and treating these surfaces, use a microfiber towel or a foam applicator pad to apply the protectant evenly. A soft bristle brush may be used for crevices. You have to get the right detailing product for the material. Aside from the dash and console, also pay attention to the turn signal levers, control buttons, the shift boot, and steering wheel. You also have to keep the vents, grilles, buttons, and controls clean. A cotton or foam swab can be used for wiping away dirt stuck deep into the seams and for applying the product or cleaning solution.
The Infiniti J30’s 5-year Run as a Luxury Sedan
With the production started in 1992 and the model officially launched in 1993 as a replacement for the M30, the Infiniti J30 was a luxury sedan that featured a rear-wheel drive layout. It was marketed as a “personal luxury sedan” with the help of commercials using artistic shots and jazz music. The marketing tactic was effective for a time, and sales were initially mildly successful. Throughout its short, five-year stint, it received few, minor upgrades and was released only as a single-generation vehicle. Five years later, Nissan stopped the production of the Infiniti J30 in 1997 to make way for its successor, the Infiniti I30.
1993: The J30 as a distinctly styled sedan
To differentiate the J30 from other Infiniti vehicles, its designers steered clear from the wedge-shaped exterior, an all-too common feature of sedans at that time. The result was a distinctly styled exterior that featured rounded flanks. However, this design was quite polarizing, with buyers either hating or loving it. Nevertheless, it did attract attention.
The interior was designed with the help of Poltrona Frau, an Italian furniture maker. To establish the sedan’s luxurious appeal, the contrasting arrangement featured in the bigger Q45 model was used as a basis. The dashboard and center console were then covered with dark-colored panels, while the seats, carpet mats, headliner, and interior door panels were covered with a lighter hue. Another unique feature of the Infiniti J30 was its unconventional window control layout for the driver’s side. The driver’s window switch was double in size and had a one-touch express down mechanism. For the window switches on the rear and front passenger sides, the controls were mounted on top of the door pull handle and were thumb activated.
Consumers at that time may not agree on the J30’s design, but one thing was certain. This luxury sedan packed a punch in terms of engine performance. This is because it was powered by a 3-L V6 that could produce a whopping 210 horsepower and 192 lb/ft. of torque.
The J30’s list of standard features included leather upholstery, a digital climate control, a Bose sound system, a front ashtray, exterior glasses with a bronze tint, power seats, three-channel anti-lock brakes, dual airbags, variable speed-sensitive power steering, and ventilated rear and front discs.
1994-1997: Minor changes over the years
In 1994, the J30 was given minor upgrades. These included two more speakers for the sound system and front seats that were heated. In the following year, a few minor changes were added. The list included a power lumbar support for the driver seat, an anti-glare mirror, and restyled taillights. In 1996, the Infiniti J30 was offered in three new color variants. During its last year of production in 1997, the J30 received no upgrade. On June 1997, production was officially scrapped.
