This is not a good car if you need to put anyone in the backseat. Unless they are small, you might have to pry them out with a crowbar. Since it is a 2008, it doesn't have all the safety features the new cars have, but what it does have works great. It's a lot of fun to drive, it hugs the road even in rain, and the front seats are sooooooo comfortable. This is the second one I have owned. I'm going to go for a small SUV next time because I do need more space to haul people and stuff.
I have owned my 2008 G37S since October 2007. It has been a very reliable car and, unlike a BMW, I don't see my car every day on my commute to and from work. It is great to drive on two-lane country roads or interstate highways. The trunk is small but the seat back folds down allowing suitcases and several cases of wine to be carried home returning from a vacation in the Finger Lakes region. 2/16/18: Still love the car. I have not yet seen a 2018 car with a manual transmission that I would rather own.
