If you're the proud owner or a new or pre-loved INFINITI vehicle, chances are you're planning on enjoying your luxurious ride for years to come. To do so, routine maintenance and plenty of love are in order. If you're wondering what's best for your INFINITI to ensure a long and happy driving relationship, read our service FAQs to learn more about the services that will keep your car running smoothly.
Why is maintenance important?
Like we said, you probably want to enjoy your luxurious ride for many years and to ensure that happens you must keep up with routine maintenance. Keeping up with normal wear and tear replacements, according to your INFINITI owner's manual, will help your INFINITI keep running newer, longer. It is also never a good idea to just let things go thinking they aren't a big problem because taking care of that little problem will help prevent an even bigger problem down the road.
How often should you change your oil?
The frequency at which you should change your oil depends on the make and model of your car. INFINITI recommends that you do so every 5,000 miles or six months, whichever comes first. Getting your vehicle's oil changed regularly is very important because it helps prevent the engine from flooding with contaminants and seizing. The oil lubricates important parts of the engine so there is no metal on metal friction. Check INFINITI's website for more information, and your owner's manual to see the exact recommended service intervals for your model, or call our INFINITI service experts to ask their advice.
Synthetic or non-synthetic oil?
Traditional motor oil is made using whole crude oil, whereas synthetic oil is made using chemically modified petroleum components. What does this mean? Synthetic oils are more stable and resistant to breakdown in extreme temperatures than traditional oil, meaning it can promote a longer engine life. Ask your service advisor for his or her recommendation regarding the best type of oil for your INFINITI.
How often should you rotate your tires?
Tire rotations usually occur at the same intervals as oil changes. To be safe, make sure your service technician rotates your tires whenever you're at INFINITI of Easton for an oil change. Rotating your tires can help prevent uneven wear, meaning your tires will last longer overall.
What is a Multi-Point Inspection?
A Multi-Point Inspection (MPI) is a complimentary performed by your INFINITI service technician whenever your car is in for maintenance. An MPI can help identify potential issues before they occur, and give you an idea of the general health of your INFINITI's engine and parts. If we see something potentially hazardous, we'll alert you and give you the option to have it fixed right then and there. So next time you're in, don't forget to ask about your complimentary MPI.
When will my INFINITI need more major maintenance?
Oil changes and tire rotations are the most frequent forms of maintenance, but every so often you'll need to have some extra services performed in order to keep your INFINITI at its optimal performance level. The typical major service intervals occur every 10,000 miles or 12 months, and include services such as brake fluid replacement, filter replacement, and inspections on all the major components of your engine.
