Thanks to the Internet, buying a new car is easier than ever. Now you can compare different vehicles side-by-side, read reviews, and even take virtual test drives without leaving the comfort of your own home. Still, shopping for a new car can be stressful, especially if you are unaware of some of the important terms used in the automotive world. To help, here is a look at some important automotive terms you should know when shopping for a new Infiniti. Even if you have already found the perfect new Infiniti vehicle, knowing these terms can help you talk about your sweet new ride to your friends and family members.
A lot of people talk about horsepower when referring to a car’s performance, but the truth is that quick acceleration, passing power, and other performance measurements are more dependent on torque than horsepower. The Infiniti G35, for example, generates 260 lb-ft of torque which launches the car forward and throws the driver back into the seat.
Direct injection forces fuel directly into the combustion chamber of each engine cylinder, mixing air and gas simultaneously at the point of combustion rather than mixing them separately in the manifold. What does this mean for you? Direct injection engines, like the DOHC V6 found on the 2014 Infiniti Q50, get better fuel efficiency and power output than regular combustion engines.
Active Safety Features
Active safety features are those devices and systems that help keep a vehicle under control and prevent accidents. Anti-lock brakes, traction control, and electronic stability control are common examples of active safety features found on most new cars. New Infiniti vehicles add an extra layer of protection with cutting-edge active safety features such as Lane Departure Prevention, Predictive Forward Collision Warning, Blind Spot Intervention, Backup Collision Intervention, and more.

Its summertime, and that means its road trip season. Whether you’re planning a weekend getaway up the coast or a cross-country tour of the United States, your Infiniti will keep you comfortable and safe during your travels this summer. But before you hit the road, there are a few things you need to do to prepare your Infiniti for the demands of summer driving. Here are some tips for preparing your Infiniti for a summer road trip.
Get an Oil Change
Oil is the lifeblood of any vehicle, and your Infiniti is no different. Before you hit the road this summer, check your owner’s manual and see when your vehicle is due for an oil change. If it is past due, or if it is coming up on its service interval, visit your local Infiniti dealership and have the oil changed to keep your vehicle in tip-top shape.
Check the Tires
Tire maintenance is critical for the safety and performance of your Infiniti, and it can even help save a few bucks on gas. For starters, check the air pressure in each tire and make sure that none of your tires or underinflated or overinflated. Also look at the tread and sidewalls. If you notice any cracks, bulges, or obvious signs of wear, visit the dealership and see about getting a new set of tires installed on your Infiniti before you venture off on any long road trips.
The service department here at Coast Infiniti can help get your Infiniti in shape for all of your summer driving adventures. Our factory-trained Infiniti technicians can handle all of your service needs, from routine oil changes to major repairs.
