Buying This Infiniti G37 Coupe Requires an Interview
Story by Jalopnik
When selling his beloved 2009 Infiniti G37, this owner wanted to make sure it went to a good home…by conducting interviews.
Many of us can relate to this story. Selling your pride and joy after years of creating lasting memories is not the easiest thing to do. The backstory behind the previous owner’s relationship with his G37 is not known. But it is quite obvious the car meant a lot to him/her. So when the previous owner of this 2009 Infiniti G37 coupe decided to part ways with “one in a Mill-Yinn” beauty, he wanted to make sure went to someone who would love it just as much.
To that end, the previous owner placed a provision on the purchase of this 9K-mile G37X. Prospective buyers for this Infiniti would have to be interviewed by the owner to ensure a perfect fit. Infiniti of Naperville of Naperville, IL had the car listed on their website. The listing has since been removed, presumably because the car has been sold. But it clearly indicated that the previous owner was very “particular on re-homing” their special car:
“BEFORE WE ALLOW YOU TO PURCHASE THIS UNIT, WE MUST HAVE YOU BE INTERVIEWED BY THE PREVIOUS OWNER TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE A GOOD FIT… VERY PARTICULAR ON RE-HOMING THIS ONE IN A MILL-YINN G37X”
Now, on the surface, it might seem somewhat absurd to have to go through an interview process to purchase a 10-year-old Infiniti from a dealer for $19,000. After all, it’s not a rare-breed Ferrari or a vintage Corvette. But as car guys, we can certainly understand where the previous owner’s heart was.
If you find yourself having to sell one of your prized possessions in the future, we suggest you take the route this loving owner did (if you can afford to).
