This car is beautiful, nice ride, handles well, looks good. However, there is a huge problem with the top, it will stick between open and close and refuse to do either. We don't have a local Infinity service in our area, so we took it to the local Nissan, they tried to force it up causing a huge amount of damage. Had to have the vehicle towed over 2 hours away to the nearest Infinity service center by the time it got there they couldn't do anything with it without body work.
Great car, but Infiniti does not stand behind their service. Not worth buying because of service. I have had Much better service at other manufacturers dealership.
Convertible has a defect. If you inadvertantly leave something in the trunk when trying to open the roof it dents the panels. A $100 garage door opener reverses itself if it senses something blocking it. You would think a $50,000 car would do the same. Infiniti says its your fault, so your new car will have two dents in it for using a standard feature of the car. (it my case it was the dealership who did something while servicing the roof top for a squeak. the rook squeaks. There is a service bulleting for it.
the roof sqeak under warranty. I asked what happens when the lub wears off, they said bring it in again.
I asked what happens if I have to bring it in after the warranty expires. They said I would have to pay for it. I need to keep bringing the car in for squeaks as long as I own it?
Put a sensor in the trunk like a simple $100 garage door opener has.
Don't tell me I have to service the vehicle for roof sqeaks for the rest of it's life and pay for it.
Get some quality control at your dealerships. The service is the worst I have ever experienced.
You are better off with a different brand.
I have (unfortunately) two inifinities. Because of service I will never buy another one again.
After test driving lots of convertibles (Audi A4, BMW 3-series, etc) I was focused on the BMW 335. In the end I couldn't get over the quality issues on the 335, and the G37 grew on me especially as I compared apples to apples price.
Have had the car for 8 months now -- lots of fun. A couple of minor grips (have to pay attention to seat belt to keep from closing door on the buckle, top creaks and groans when shut, music juke box isn't as user friendly as it could be), but overall I'm still in love with the car. Two kids love it too -- it's a bit tight in the back seat, but they manage.
Advice for buyers -- navigation definitely worth the money, tech package not so much.
Music juke box
Air conditioned seats (they really work well)
Music Juke Box user interface (e.g., easier alpha search)
Seat belt shoulder strap retainers (come unbuckled too easily)

I had hoped to be blown away by this car. Infiniti has such a great reputation and I loved the car when I test drove it. But after having had it 9 months, I'm not overly impressed. The convertible has a lot of creeks and rattles. The Bose sound system has more limited sound and voice controls than I would have thought, and annoyingly inadequate navigation (If you load up the 30 megabyte hard drive on the car with music, you pretty much have to scroll through the music - no voice controls, you can't even skip to letters of the alphabet. Handles great. Paint scratches really easily.
Accerleration, styling, interior materials and layout.
Put a sensor in the retractable roof to stop it of something is blocking it.
Re-think the audio interface - my aftermarket Pioneer stereo has more functionality at a fraction of the price.
I found it odd that you can get air conditioned seats on the hardtop, but not on the sport version of the convertible where you would really want them.
A lot of creak and gasket rubbing creates annoying background noise that I didn't expect.
