Here's a few M30 reviews I came across:
"Prospower, safety, reliability.
I have a 1992 Infiniti M30 convertible. It's the best car I've ever owned. I bought it in late 92 after they announced that they were going to discontinue the car. The car dealers were making great deals to get rid of their stock. Sticker price 36k (with options) and I drove it off the lot for 25K. I've owned it now for nearly eight years and it's still showroom condition and it just turned 40,000 miles. The car is still as tight and smooth as the day I bought it. Virtually no problems except for a leaky rear adjustable shock. Out in Los Angeles, you see quite a few M30 coupes and convertibles and they all seem to be really well taken care of. It's like there's a loyal fan club out here. The engine displacement is a perfect fit for this car. Nice power and handling. (Same engine as in the 300z - late eighties. It has a natural throaty sound when accelerating, kinda like an American V-8) It's funny, when I first bought the car, friends joked that the styling was too bland and conservative. It seems to have aged well, like a fine wine, because now when I pull up somewhere, (still looking new) people always approach and say, "What a great looking car -- when did Infiniti start making a convertible?" I would suggest this car to anyone who can find a clean one. It's a nice size, not bad on gas, very safe. In 1992 it was one of the top ten safest cars in head on crash tests. It also is chalk full of parts from the Nissan bins, especially the engine, so it will be easy to find parts, even though it was only built for three years. I think the M30 is a well kept secret.

Full Review I own a '92 M30 Convertible. It is honestly the best car I have ever owned. My faithful car just turned over 100,000 miles and is still running like new. I bought the car used two years ago...Normally, I would have been apprehensive about buying a used car, but this car seemed to be in immaculate condition. Since I have had the car, I have done the following repairs:4 new tiresfront brake pads (once since I bought it)
That is IT. I have not had to do ANYTHING else with it. This car is AMAZING. Although it's almost 9 years old and has over 100,000 miles on it, it still has a lot of power. It's a luxury car and a sports car at the same time. The drive is very smooth, yet it has no problem accelerating to high speeds when necessary. I LOVE this car! I get compliments on it all the time. Infiniti used the best of materials to make this car - the leather is still like new and the engine hasn't leaked on my driveway yet. It is a very solid car, it's very quiet - sometimes I can't tell whether the engine is on or not. I would highly recommend the M30 to anyone who has the opportunity to purchase one.

ConsHard to get in and out of back seats with top up (like I care), paltry 18 mpg on average
Full Review There were only 8,000 cars (approximately) of this model produced by Infiniti in 1991 & 1992, which begs the question, "why did they stop making them?" These are great little cars. I test drove the car my husband bought and liked it so much, I had to find one of my own. I ended up having mine shipped from Long Island all the way to Arizona and it was worth it.
They are fairly zippy with a V6 engine and they handle the road quite nicely. They don't feel as tight or heavy as a BMW or Mercedes, but they don't carry the price tags of those cars either. What they do offer that goes head to head with the best of them is the simplicity of taking the top up and down. Everything is automatic. With one button, the front panel unscrews, all the windows retract and the roof lowers into place. The same is true for raising it back up, no levers to snap and no need to reach over into the passenger seat if you're alone.
I also love my M30 because in a world filled with "bubble" cars, the sharp lines of the Infiniti stand out. I know that I'm not alone in this belief because there are at least a half dozen M30 convertibles in my Bay Area town, all of them in great condition (on the outside at least). The gas mileage could be a little better, but I suppose Japanese cars are no longer synonymous with energy efficient.
