Hey, 'vert owners

I created a sticky in the Newbies forum titled "So you want to buy a G35/G37/Q40" but I am not hip to the common top issues. It would be awesome if y'all could provide a list of common issues specific to the convertible. I've seen "flipper" more than once when I would drop in here. What else?

Thanks!

I have read that the convertible open/close button can fall into the console, but I haven't experienced that one.

Late model 2010 purchased with 68,000 miles now with 76,000 after a year and a half. No problems with Convertible top and hope it stays that way. I did have a car cover that I had thrown in the back that I forgot about that got caught up in the folds of the roof and the sensors picked up on it as it was supposed to and stopped it from working which was frightening, but relieved it did stop. Otherwise, it could have been a horrific outcome. I was able to slowly pull the cover from out of the folds and the top went back to working properly! You talk about one huge sigh of relief! One other time I had stuff in the back and once again, the sensors did their job and stopped it. Now that fall has finally hit, I look forward to popping the top and take in the cool crisp air and enjoy my ride!

I know there are some weak points from the times I've cruised through this forum. I'm surprised only folks who haven't had problems are the members posting.

If you fancy one go out and buy one.
If you research any product on the internet and ask about issues people have had with it you would never buy anything.....well that’s my experience, the negatives always come to the front, nothings perfect
The majority of owners never look at forums like this, a small minority look and make a posting when they’ve got an issue....hence why sometimes issues effecting a few owners are thrown out of proportion
We love our vert, best car we’ve ever owned, and we’ve owned a few!!

2013, 46K miles. No issues at all. I drop the top every chance I get, and have left the top down for as long as a week at a time. As I understand it, some of the more common issues (specifically the plastic flipper gears breaking) were addressed in the later models. I know the gear that actuates the flipper on the 2013 is different from the earlier models, but I'm not sure which year that change was implemented.

I think most of the common issues are just convertible issues, period. I get some rattling every now and again, and sometimes the top lets in a few drops of water. Other than that, I've had a largely trouble-free experience. Top always opens and closes, and I've never had a real leak, even after going through car washes. My last car was an Acura TL SH-AWD 6MT, and I had more trouble with that sedan than this convertible.

Just the driver's side window, near the tweeter. It may just be a function of the windows being frameless.
