We owned this car for three years and absolutely loved the exterior design.
I think it's one of the most beautiful cars on the road.
However, there were some major issues that start with cheap materials.
The cheap plastics in the dash and door panels do not befit a car selling for 50 large.
The leather seat material was far less opulent than my Hyundai Genesis, when the doors close you cannot reach the seat adjuster without scratching the aluminum trim on the doors.
Build quality was poor.
Rubber weatherstripping squeezing out from trim, rattles when top up ands zero trunk space with top down.
This is a $30K car with the top chopped off and $23K added to the price.

I spent a long time doing research on my next car (4 years) each time I took a car that meet my requirements out on a test drive I was disappointed.
I wanted something sporty that wasn't just a flat out race car.
BMW got really close.
But considering that I got my Infiniti for $45k, when a similarly equipped BMW would have cost $65K, I'm rather happy with how everything turned out.

I purchased the G37 Convertible new in November, 2009, and now have ~14k miles on it.
Unlike most hard top convertibles, it looks great top up and top down.
The car is an absolute blast to drive when the weather is sunny and one can take the top down.
With the top up, it is a mediocre performer due to the weight of the retractable top and structural reinforcements.
Creature comforts are great - the ventilated seats, iPod Integration, Bluetooth and Bose Audio System - make the car very liveable on a daily basis.
Due to the styling, there is limited storage space in the trunk and car.
I highly recommend the air deflector for the car - it makes a big difference at highway speeds (70mph+)

I leased a new 2010 G37 convertible when my Mercedes Benz CLK350 lease ran out. With the Infiniti, it's like night and day. The G37 is so much faster, handles better and even looks classier, inside and out, than the Mercedes. So far, both Infiniti and the dealer have been great. Responsive and proactive with notices and keeping in touch.

Right after I purchased a 2009 G37 Convertible, I noticed that there was persistent creaking coming from both sides of the rear portion of the hardtop. That night, I put the top down and up, and noticed that the trunk was opened afterward, so I closed it manually. The next morning, I approached my car in the garage to find the trunk opened again. 2 days later, the engine refused to go past 10 mph and the Engine Light was on so I was forced to bring it into the dealership. It's since been over 30 days and Infiniti has tried to solve the problem twice to no avail. I still don't have my car. Most of all, I'm wondering where the other bad reviews are? Can anyone say Infiniti Hush Money?

Bought the car just over six months ago and continue to be extremely happy i didn't go with the BMW 335 conv. or the Lexus 3C. The car drives really well, wind feels great with the optional wind deflector, and the sound system is awesome. The Sat Nav is almost perfect and the cooled seats put my friends at awe. The only problem is the body rigidity (average), and the damn seat belts. Its enough of a pet peeve that the retractors don't fully retract the belts when I take them off. Next time Infiniti, make sure the seat belts don't get caught by the door when I get out.
I own a pretty low-mileage (44k) 2009 G37 6MT and I've never had any problems with the car. Recently on the way home from a car wash the car began to shudder and buck when I accelerated past 2500 rpm ...
