How to Keep Your Vehicle Clean and Help Prevent the Spread of Germs

During this pandemic most of us are spending a lot more time at home and less time on the road. Staying at home is an important and necessary measure to limit our potential exposure to this virus. However, many of us still need to leave the house for things like groceries or to commute to work. We might not think about it often, but vehicles can be great carriers not only for groceries, but for germs. Click the link below for some excellent tips on how to keep your car clean and sanitized in a recent article by Jerry Reynolds on CarProUSA.

Winter Car Care Checklist: Make Sure Your INFINITI is Ready for Winter Weather

As winter weather approaches it is important to make sure your INFINITI is running properly for the snow and colder temperatures. No matter what you drive, follow this checklist to make sure your vehicle is ready for the winter so you can stay on the road and out of the snow!

Fill Your Tires

Colder weather leads to a decrease in tire pressure, which can dangerously impact the way your vehicle drives. Low tire pressure can lead to: unwanted wear and tear on your tires, lower gas mileage, and less traction on the road. Tires lose about one pound per square inch (PSI) for every ten degree (Fahrenheit) decrease in outside temperature. This is why it is important to regularly check your tire pressure and make sure they are all properly inflated. Now is the perfect time to make sure your tires are in proper driving condition. Whether they just need some more air or they need to be replaced, our service department at Airport INFINITI offers complimentary tire inspections, and our service advisers can answer any questions you have.

Protect Your Windshield

Nobody enjoys waking up early in the winter to scrape snow and ice off of their windshield. Avoid the hassle by leaving windshield wipers extended overnight so they are not frozen to the windshield in the morning. Winter is also a great time to consider replacing your wiper blades. Save time and stay warm by using our Express Service to get your wiper blades and a free complimentary multi-point inspection with no appointment needed at Airport INFINITI. Being able to see the road clearly is even more important when driving in winter weather when stopping distances increase on wet or snowy roads and visibility is restricted by snow, sleet, or rain. Make sure your wiper fluid is full so you can keep your windshield clear as you drive. It is also important to check your windshield for any small cracks or chips. Changes in temperature can quickly cause those chips to crack and spread, forcing you to replace your entire windshield in some cases.

Check Your Brakes

Snowy weather can make slowing down and stopping your vehicle unpredictable and unsafe. One way to ensure your vehicle will stop when put your foot on the brake is to know that your brakes are working properly. Most drivers replace their brakes about every 50,000 miles, but this can be much sooner depending on your driving habits. Here are some signs you might need to replace the brakes on your INFINITI:

  • Brake Warning Light
  • Squeaking, squealing, or grinding noise when you brake
  • Your vehicle pulls to one side as you slow down
  • It takes longer to stop than normal

Test your Battery

Cold weather causes your vehicle’s battery work harder to start your engine and keep it running. A vehicle’s battery is much more likely to die this time of the year when the temperatures are lower. To avoid the frustration of getting into a cold car that will not start look for the following signs that your battery might need replaced:

  • Slower starting engine
  • Dim headlights
  • Check engine light
  • Battery is close to 3 years old or older

Even if you have a new battery you should still test it regularly and keep a set of jumper cables in your vehicle in case of emergency. Our service department offers a free diagnostic test on your battery to give you a report on its current condition with no appointment needed.

Fuel Up

Most of us wait until the last second to fill up our cars when we are running low on fuel. This is especially true in the winter when we do not want to be pumping gas in freezing temperatures. However, keeping your tank at least half full can really save you in the long run. Maintaining more gas in your tank prevents the moisture from building from condensation. That moisture can freeze and prevent your car from starting. It is a good idea to keep gas in your tank in case you ever get stuck in the snow. This way you can keep your vehicle running so you can stay warm and keep the radio playing until help arrives.

For more information on servicing your vehicle to be ready for this winter check out our website. Or take a look at our new and used vehicle inventories at Airport INFINITI to get out of your current vehicle and gain peace of mind that your new vehicle is prepared to take on the winter weather.

INFINITI Forward Emergency Braking

INFINITI is always thinking safety first and has incorporated what is known as a Forward Emergency Braking system into their new INFINITI models like the Q50 and Q60.

INFINITI's Forward Emergency Braking System Helps You Monitor Your Surroundings

By using advanced technology to calculate the distance between you and the vehicle in front of you, as well as the speed of both vehicles, this INFINITI innovation can detect the possibility of a collision, and help you avoid it.

INFINITI Forward Emergency Braking

Two Stage Warning System

At the heart of the Forward, Emergency Braking system is a 2 stage warning alert system; both intended to give the driver the most actionable information possible in an inherently fluid situation where a crash may occur.

Risk Detected

The system alerts the driver with visual and audible cues and pushes the accelerator pedal up. If the driver releases the accelerator, the system applies partial braking.

When the system detects a problem, a “Risk Detected” warning will alert a driver with both visual and audible cues that the circumstance may be more severe than they had initially discerned. The system automatically slows down the car by pushing up accelerator pedal.  If a driver releases the accelerator, the system automatically applies partial braking – thus reducing your speed and improving conditions to avoid a head-on collision.

Collision May Occur

If the driver doesn’t take action, the system provides an additional set of warnings and applies harder braking to help the driver avoid an accident, or mitigate the consequences should one occur.
The second warning stage is called “Collision May Occur.”  If in a scenario where the driver doesn't respond to warnings of any kind, the warning system will automatically apply an additional set of warnings in an attempt to alert the driver of impending danger. If the driver continues to do nothing, the vehicle will automatically brake harder to either help the driver avoid a collision or to reduce the overall impact by slowing the car down.

Airport INFINITI

Features like INFINITI's Forward Emergency Braking provide a bit more peace of mind when driving and help protect loved ones.   To find out more information about Forward Emergency Braking, or to get answers to your important INFINITI questions, contact us at Airport INFINITI today.

Keeping Your INFINITI Software Up To Date

Cars these days are becoming more and more like four-wheeled computers. INFINITI's without exception are leading this trend and include cool features like turn by turn navigation systems, WiFi hotspots, hands-free technology as well as all sorts of onboard diagnostics.

2019-infiniti-qx50-crossover-dashboard-connectivity

Each year new technologies add to the list of features that make the vehicles more and more computer-like.

While this technology can make your life a lot simpler and convenient in so many ways, it can also cause your vehicle to become vulnerable to hacking.

Updating Vehicle Software

That is why it's essential to update your INFINITI vehicle software regularly. You don't want some random hacker messing with your vehicle. Frequently new software updates will be communicated via email from either the manufacturer or dealer or both.

Some updates can be performed using a USB drive, while others may be more involved and will require you to bring your car to a dealership or a trusted professional INFINITI certified service station. It's best to refer to your vehicles owners manual or contact your INFINITI dealer.

Recalls

Some manufacture recalls and updates may require you to bring the car in to be serviced rather than trying to do it a home. When in doubt, call your local INFINITI dealer for more information.

You can also do an INFINITI Recall Check By VIN.

Routine Vehicle Maintenance

If you get your vehicle serviced often, make sure the dealer or service station includes updating the software if necessary as part of the service.
