When you notice the light, bring your vehicle in for Engine Diagnostics at our Redwood City location for an instant assessment.

[BOOK NOW: Schedule Engine Diagnostics]

What Causes the Check Engine Light to Come On?

If the check engine light suddenly comes on, it's easy to assume the worst. However, the light covers an entire range of potential problems from a loose gas cap to more serious problems. That's why it's important to run an engine diagnostic test to read the code stored in your vehicle's on-board computer system. An INFINITI technician at our service center will read the code and help you understand what the problem is, which may or may not be the engine itself. The check engine light can cover a huge range of issues, including:

  • Spark Plugs
  • Oxygen Sensor
  • Battery
  • Ignition
  • Catalytic Converter
  • Mass Airflow Sensor

Of course, the only way to know is to have the code read by a professional. While you should try not to panic at the sight of the check engine light, it is important to address the problem soon. That way, you can avoid any problems worsening and leaving you with a broken down vehicle and more expensive and time-consuming repairs. As soon as you see the light come on steadily or start blinking, you can contact the service center at Redwood City INFINITI. Our factory-trained INFINITI technicians can perform a quick assessment and address any repairs or parts replacement services you might need. We only use genuine INFINITI parts to service your vehicle, so you can drive away with the assurance of a complete repair.

How to Choose a New or Used Vehicle

Choosing your next vehicle is an exciting but daunting experience. Whether you're looking for a car that's brand new or just new to you, there's a lot to think about before signing the papers to make a car, truck, or van yours. That's why we've created this handy guide with some quick tips to help you know what to look for when deciding how to choose a new or used vehicle.

[SHOP NOW: New and Used Vehicles in Redwood City, CA]

Finding the Right Car for You

If you've never bought a new vehicle, it's tough to know where to start. How are you supposed to know what you want? Which features are better than others? Instead of getting overwhelmed, you can ask yourself the following questions to narrow down your search. Then, follow the steps to pinpointing your next vehicle.

What are your needs?

This question can cover a broad range, but with so many options out there, it can really help you pinpoint the type of vehicle you're searching for. If you have a short daily commute, you might consider a hybrid or electric vehicle to save on fuel and get you where you need to go with low or zero emissions. Maybe you take frequent road trips; in that case, a roomy cargo area and convenience features are key. Write down details such as how many passengers you'll be hauling, which features are a must-have, and whether you're planning to use the vehicle for towing.

What's your budget?

Budget alone will help you answer several questions, such as new vs. used or lease vs. purchase. Determine how much you have for a down payment and the cost of your monthly payments, than narrow your search based on those factors. There's no use in finding your dream car that's way out of your budget, but with the right financing or budgeting, you can certainly come close. Remember, too, that trading in a current vehicle should factor into your budget and can greatly reduce the cost.

Should you lease or buy?

The answer to this question depends on your budget and preferences. Leasing is a great option if you like the latest technology and plan to switch out for a new vehicle again soon, while purchasing offers the benefit of ownership and fewer restrictions. If you aren't sure, you can take a look at our available financing and lease options for more detailed information.

Test Drive

Once you have an idea of what you're looking for, it's time for the most fun part: the test drive! Test driving can help you rule out an option you thought you wanted and will help you feel more confident in making your final decision. A helpful sales associate can make the difference and will be able to show off all the features and details that you might be seeking in your next vehicle.

Find Your Next Vehicle at Redwood City INFINITI

When you're ready to start your search, come visit us at Redwood City INFINITI! Along with all the newest INFINITI vehicles, you can also find a great selection of pre-owned vehicles that are sure to meet your needs. Contact us today to schedule a test drive and get started on your search.

Does my new INFINITI need paint and fabric protection?

There's a lot to consider when you're shopping for a new or used vehicle. With so many options and add-ons available, it can be difficult to decide what's worth it and what isn't. Paint and fabric protection is one of those options, but is it really worth it? Find out why adding extra protection to your new INFINITI is a worthwhile investment and what it includes.

[SHOP NOW: Buy a New INFINITI Today!]

What Does Paint and Fabric Protection Include?

With our Paint and Fabric Protection, you get the added assurance of protection both inside and outside your new INFINITI. First, our experienced technicians apply an exterior sealant that protects your paint from acid rain, oxidation, sun damage, tree sap, and other factors that can cause damage. It doesn't change the look of your paint, but it does add an invisible layer of defense.

Zurich Shield has many benefits:

  • A protected vehicle retains more resale value and saves money on detailing or repainting.
  • If the Paint and Fabric Protection fails, we'll cover the cost of repairs.
  • We'll also cover the cost of a rental during repair.
  • Sealant can be reapplied as often as necessary to keep your vehicle protected.

The interior fabric protection works similarly to the exterior spray, but it's made specifically for vehicle fabric like cloth and even leather. It preserves the color of the seating material by repelling stains and preventing premature aging from regular use. Clean-ups are easier, and it will help your seating and carpet last longer while looking fresh and clean.

Paint and Fabric Protection at Redwood City INFINITI

At Redwood City INFINITI, all of our vehicles come with paint and fabric protection. We believe in helping you protect your investment, and we do that by including Zurich Shield services to keep your new vehicle looking its best. Paint and fabric protection is built into our simple pricing, so you know you're getting the best price for your brand new car. We guarantee expert application backed by the Zurich Shield warranty. Contact us today for more information, and be sure to check out our inventory of new and used vehicles with included Fabric and Paint Protection!

Where can I lease a new INFINITI in Redwood City CA?

If you're planning to lease a new INFINITI in Redwood City, CA, there's no better place than right here at Redwood City INFINITI. There are several benefits to leasing a new INFINITI with us, like our great rates and exclusive INFINITI perks. Learn more about how our leasing program works and how you can make it work for you.

[SHOP NOW: Find Your New INFINITI Today!]

Leasing vs. Buying

To understand if leasing is the right option for you, it can help to know the differences between leasing and purchasing a vehicle. When you agree to a lease, you're essentially renting a new vehicle from a dealership for a certain term. You pay a lower monthly payment than if you were purchasing to use a brand new vehicle for a certain amount of time or specific mileage limits. Then, once your lease is up, you return you have the option to extend your lease, start a new lease, purchase the vehicle, or return it. On the other hand, purchasing a vehicle comes with a loan with its own terms and higher monthly payment, but you are the owner of the vehicle once it's paid off. There are pros and cons to each, and the choice is up to your personal preferences.

Benefits of Leasing an INFINITI

Choosing a lease comes with some very attractive perks.

  • Leasing allows you to drive a luxury vehicle with the latest technology and safety features.
  • With Redwood City INFINITI's Lease Loyalty incentives, you can save money on your lease.
  • When you lease, you often have a lower monthly payment than if you were to purchase.
  • Changing to a new vehicle requires less time and hassle than a trade-in.
  • Returning or exchanging your leased vehicle is easy and you have several options for both.

How to Know When to Replace Your Tires

Like any other part on your vehicle, tires need to be replaced eventually. But how can you tell when it's time for new tires? These are some of the signs to look out for to stay safe on the road and avoid flat tires.

[BOOK NOW: Schedule Your Tire Replacement Service Today!]

Signs You Need New Tires

These are some of the most common signs that it's time to replace your tires. However, if you ever have any questions, it's best to consult an experienced technician who can explain more.

Low Tread Depth

Tread is the most valuable component on a tire to give you traction and control. Your tires need enough tread to grip the road, allowing you to brake and accelerate safely and smoothly. Low tread depth is dangerous because it can affect your ability to brake, increasing the likelihood of a collision. On top of the danger, driving with low tread reduces your fuel economy, costing you more over time.

Signs of Damage

Road debris like nails and rocks can easily pierce your tires. Although it's not always evident immediately, an imbedded nail or stone will eventually cause the tire to fail. Other types of damage can include bubbles or bulges, usually caused by rough road conditions like potholes or ruts. Any visible damage should always be addressed as soon as possible.

Irregular Wear

Misalignment is the main cause of irregular tread wear. If your tread is wearing abnormally fast or unevenly, an alignment is usually a necessary step to correct the problem. Unfortunately, if the wear is bad enough, you might have to replace your tires altogether on top of getting an alignment.

Tire Age

How long have you had your tires? Depending on how often you use your vehicle and for what purpose, you might have had your tires for over five years. If that's the case, it's probably time for a replacement. Even if they still look decent, age can play a role in the integrity of your tires. Small cracks, tears, and dry rot are inevitable over time, so it's a good idea to replace the tires before they cause a blowout.

Changing Seasons

Different tires aren't only necessary for snowy conditions. Extreme heat causes excess wear and tear on your tires, and different types of tires can have different ratings for temperature. Even those rated highly can take a beating from hot pavement, so try to check your tires more often during heatwaves.

Where to Get a Front End Alignment in Redwood City CA

All vehicles require maintenance, and you've probably heard of aligning your vehicle as part of that maintenance. But are you familiar with why you should check your alignment? Front-end alignment is an essential part of a well-running vehicle and can greatly impact the longevity and quality of your vehicle.

[BOOK NOW: Schedule a Front End Alignment Today!]

Signs You Need Front-End Alignment

So, how do you know if you need a front-end alignment? First of all, front-end alignments are typically reserved for two-wheel drive vehicles, while AWD or 4WD would require a 4-wheel alignment. If you do have a FWD vehicle, these are some of the signs to look out for that it might be time for an alignment.

  • Is your car pulling to one side or the other while you drive? If you have to compensate by turning your steering wheel when you're trying to drive straight, it's probably time for an alignment.
  • Take a look at each tire's tread wear. Are the front or back tires wearing unevenly? Does each individual tire have more wear on the inside or outside? Uneven wear indicates misalignment.
  • Does your steering wheel vibrate while you're in motion? This could be an indication that the front and back wheels aren't aligned with each other and need realignment.
  • Did you just replace your tires? New tires might mean that you should check the alignment. Luckily, this can be done at the time of your tire replacement service to save you time.
  • Frequent travel on dirt or rough roads can slowly put your wheels out of alignment. If that's the case, you should have your alignment checked more often than if you only drive on smooth roads.

Why Is Alignment Necessary?

A front-end alignment is necessary to fix all of the above issues. Often, if your vehicle has poor alignment, you need to pay for the alignment as well as new tires, especially if they have uneven wear. On top of that, a misaligned front end puts extra stress on your suspension, adding to the list of repairs. Routine alignment will save your tires, suspension, wheels, and could even increase your gas mileage. While it's not something that's necessary at specific intervals, you should at least have your alignment checked out as part of routine maintenance.

Where can I test drive new INFINITI vehicles in Redwood City CA?

Part of the fun of car shopping is the test drive. You get to experience first-hand exactly how a car handles and imagine what it would be like for this to be your everyday vehicle. If you're looking for a place to test drive new INFINITI vehicles in the Bay Area, come to Redwood City INFINITI! We provide a personalized shopping experience to help you find just the car you've been looking for.

[SHOP NOW: New INFINITI Vehicles]

Test Driving Checklist

Do you know exactly what you're looking for in a new INFINITI? Are you open to a new driving experience, or need some guidance? No matter your stage of car shopping, there are a few things you should keep in mind as you test drive each vehicle. If it helps, take notes after each test drive on the following categories.

Comfort

This is going to be your next vehicle, so you want to be sure that it suits you. Do you like the seat material? Does the vehicle have lumbar support or massage settings? Many new INFINITI vehicles have advanced comfort, from heated and ventilated seating to smooth suspension with fewer bumps along the way.

Features

The features you want in a vehicle are all up to personal preferences. Even different trims within one model can have vastly different features, so be sure to inform your sales team of any specific ones you want. You might want built-in navigation or towing capacity, or maybe you prefer all-wheel drive and driver assist features. If the car you're testing doesn't have what you need, another trim or model might.

infiniti massage setting display on touchscreen

Handling

Take note of steering, braking, and acceleration. Different types of vehicles can handle completely differently, so it might turn out that you'd prefer a sedan over an SUV. Even hybrid or electric vehicles have different handling that may take some getting used to.

Purpose

During your test drive, think about what purpose the car will fill. If you have a long daily commute, comfort and handling might beat out a high-tech cabin. Maybe you take a lot of road trips with your friends or family. In that case, an infotainment system with connectivity and a robust sound system could be your deciding factor.

Above all, the car you test drive should make you feel good. Want to get a head start before scheduling a test drive? Browse our inventory of new INFINITI vehicles to see what catches your eye! We'd love to help you get behind the wheel of your next new vehicle, so come down to our Redwood City dealership for your test drive today.

Our list of automotive maintenance services includes:

Oil Change

Motor oil and filter changes are the most common type of maintenance. Oil is necessary to keep your engine running smoothly and properly. It lubricates the engine to keep metal from rubbing on metal, but over time, it can become sludgy, dark, or filled with dirt and other debris. Changing your oil and filter is recommended for most INFINITI models between 5,000 and 10,000 miles, or every 6-12 months.

Tire Rotation

We recommend rotating your tires about every 6 months so that they wear evenly and last longer. Uneven wear can lead to flat tires, poor handling, and more frequent replacement.

Engine Diagnostics

Did your check engine light suddenly turn on? Car not running as it should or making strange noises? We can perform engine diagnostics to determine the cause of the problem, then form a solution and perform any repairs or maintenance.

Transmission Repair

Our transmission repair services include fluid top-off and flushing, cable adjustments, and other minor changes to your transmission. If you need full replacement, we can use a genuine INFINITI part to get you back on the road.

Brake Service

From replacing brake pads to rotor repair, our technicians can keep you safe and get you back behind the wheel faster. We can also flush brake fluid, clean the components, and more to keep your brakes working as they should.

[ SHOP NOW: Find Your New INFINITI Q50 ]

Q50 Features and Specs

As in years past, the INFINITI Q50 comes in three different trim options. Although all are luxury, each is a slight step up from the next with upgraded features and additional add-ons. With each level of trim comes a different price point, starting between $43,675 and $57,525. The slight rise in price is worth it, though, since all trim levels now come with the Premium Care Program. The maintenance package includes oil changes, coolant top-off, and tire rotation - all at no additional cost.

All come with luxury features like heated steering wheel, various driver assist technology, and more legroom than most comparable sedans. The dual-screen infotainment system is enabled with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless streaming and entertainment to accompany the Bose sound system, while the Wi-Fi Hotspot allows up to seven devices to pair.

Q50 Sensory

A step up from the Luxe, the Sensory trim has 19" wheels and a newly-added Radiant Grille Emblem, previously only available on the Red Sport 400.

Q50 Red Sport 400

The Q50's most expensive trim level boasts a significant power increase in both engine size and torque. High-end suspension and a brake upgrade make the driving experience feel more powerful and luxurious to accompany the higher price.

Where can I get new tires for my INFINITI vehicle in Redwood City, CA?

Taking care of your tires is important for a multitude of reasons. There are few things worse when it comes to owning a vehicle than unexpectedly having to replace your tires, but taking care of them can help eliminate this. That’s not to say you won’t eventually need to replace them, but taking good care of them can increase the longevity of your tires and make sure that when you do need to replace them it isn’t unexpected. If it is time for you to get new tires for your INFINITI vehicle in Redwood City, California, you can find them right here at the Redwood City INFINITI Service & Parts Department.

[ SCHEDULE NOW: Book Your Brake Service Today! ]

How do I take care of my tires?

2014 INFINITI Q50 WheelThere are a few great services to stay on top of that will help you take care of your tires and increase their longevity. Stay on top of your tire pressure, get your tires rotated whenever you get the oil changed, and make sure to check your alignment on a regular basis. These three things will help you to get the most out of your tires.

How do I know when I need to replace them?

Naturally, if anything unexpected happens to your tires, such as running over a nail, you’re most likely going to have to replace your tires and there isn’t much that can be done about this unexpected replacement. But taking care of your tires, as we mentioned above, can help the tread on your tires wear out more evenly and thus increase the amount of time you can utilize those tires.

[ SHOP NOW: Find Your New INFINITI Tires Today! ]

Eventually, even if you stay on top of the services we mentioned in the previous section, your tread depth will wear out past the point where it’s safe to continue driving on them. That’s when you should bring your vehicle in to get them replaced. You can check your tread depth by sticking a penny in the grooves of your tire with Lincoln’s head face down. If you can still see his forehead, then it’s time for a new set of tires. If that’s the case, be sure to give us a call to schedule an appointment.
