Wifes happiness by dlp from Houston on 08/30/2010. Trim: 2009 Infiniti G Convertible G37, Owned 1 year.
2
Pros: Great car with excellent quality throughout. The air conditioned seats are a godsend with the top down. The stereo system is impressive to say the least. Overall a wonderful car to own for the long term without the constant upkeep of The German brands.
Cons: Small trunk, seat belt harness tends to keep the seat belt from retracting properly.
Overall review: Excellent car!!!!

Not as good as I would expect from Infinity by Feel Like I Compromised on 02/14/2010. Trim: 2009 Infiniti G Convertible G37, Owned less than 1 year.
2
Pros: Awesome lines, mostly fun to drive. Sound is tremendous.
Cons: Lower marks for acceleration - noticeable hesitation. Seat belt retraction does not work on either the driver or passenger side. Music Box may be the dumbest idea ever in audio features for cars. Some oddities - having to have the doors unlocked in order to be able to open the gas tank, a distinct safety drawback; Bluetooth feature does not work with all phones, a point not made during the sales process - mine automatically places a call to phone # 999 every time I turn on the engine and I have to manually hang up the phone. Audio alert on backing up would have been nice. Water doesn't drain properly off the roof after rain, causing wet seats when the door opens.
Overall review: As with all convertibles, there are definitely trade-offs - The trunk space is virtually unusable, but that's why I bought a 4 seater. In spite of other reviews that say the rear is reasonable for adults, it's not. Good for trunk space, though. Looks much much better than the Lexus ISC 350, but in my view does not perform as well. Tough call between the 2.

Love at First Ride.... by An MSN Autos Consumer on 12/02/2009. Trim: 2009 Infiniti G Convertible G37, Owned less than 1 year.
2
Pros: Easily the most beautiful hard top convertible out there. Unless you live where there is no snow, little rain or potholes, get the 18" wheels for better year round comfort. Handling is crisp, the cabin coupe quiet, stereo top notch, acceleration smooth. The choice of using touch screen or keys is a nice touch and the voice activation works accurately. Ventilated seats ensure a nice ride come summer but only if you don't upgrade to the sport seats. The top goes down in 30 seconds in an elegant ballet of mechanics. 7 speed auto transmission is smooth and adaptive to your driving. Lots of customization options with the Navigation upgrade. Lots of standard options.
Cons: Like any car, the G37 is not perfect. The engine can rev hard when pushed hard. Standard features on other Infiniti cars, like the side mirrors which tilt down when in reverse and paddle shifters on the steering wheel, are not on the G37 for some strange reason. Some buttons are hidden by the steering whel. The steep windshield allows you to be easily blinded by on coming cars but Crystal Fusion at your deal fixes this in addition to making your windshield strong and insured. The radio was complicated to set up. Only support for Apple ipod (sorry but iTunes is awful software ). CD does not read home burned song titles. The back seat is as small as it looks. As is the trunk when top down.
Overall review: Drove a BMW 335, BMW 135, Lexus 350C and Audi A5/S5 convertibles. The new S5 is amazing but you are looking at around $65K for it when nicely equipped. The A5 has the same gorgeous lines but $55K for a small engine (211 HP) car meant anemic acceleration and ok handling. The 335 was just ugly inside and out. Save $10K and get a 135 - better handling and interior compared it's bigger brother; the moonlight grey softop is a nice $100 upgrade for some distinction. The Lexus was the most bland and boring car of the bunch by far. With the G37 it was love at first sight. While those sensuous lines mean less trunk space up or down (and when down the trunk is not usable), isn't there is always a trade off between practical and beauty? Standard features are extensive, like 8 way ventilated and heated seats, and the 18 inch wheels offer comfort and grip. Skip the technology package and instead get leather protection to prevent sun fading. A great car in all the important respects!

Sport & Luxury Max by Conrad from Utah on 11/15/2009. Trim: 2009 Infiniti G Convertible G37 Sport 6MT, Owned less than 1 year.
2
Pros: The styling is phenominal, especially from the rear view. As stated in other comments the styling is great with the top up or down. Unless you are familiar with the G37S Convertable, with the top up you would never guess it's a drop top. Great to drive, the power and the handling is is excellent. Really fun to drive with the top down -- purchased the optional wind screen , well worth the money, knocks the swirling wind down dramatically. Interior is well thought out and the Bose stereo system is really great. We have the G37S model, with the auto transmission.
Cons: Been driving it for about four months and have not found anything negative about the car yet --inside or out. In fact I got rid of a 2002 CTS for this car and happy for it.
Overall review: Super car. If you are looking for luxury and sport really consider the G37S Convertable. You'll definetly be satisfied with the purchase.

Pros: Great looking with top up or down. Wonderful exhaust sound and performance. A blast to drive!
