Lease vs. Purchase
Leasing and purchasing are two options that give you the privilege of driving a vehicle and parking it in your driveway. However, they are very different in that you own the vehicle when you purchase it while you are only renting it when you lease. Other differences exist which may impact the option you choose when you look at your next INFINITI.
When you lease a vehicle, you often pay less each month than if you were buying the vehicle. Leasing also usually requires less money down or even no money down. You have the car for a specific period of time, generally two to four years. Once your lease period is up, you can decide to pay the balance, upgrade to another model or just return it. You don’t have to worry about finding a buyer or using it as a trade-in before you can get another vehicle. You will want to maintain the condition of the vehicle to avoid paying for repairs at the end of the lease. You may also be limited in mileage with a leased vehicle.
When you purchase an INFINITI, you will likely have higher monthly payments to include depreciation and the entire sale price and interest. However, you don’t have to worry about mileage or wear and tear since the vehicle is yours. You can also customize your vehicle, which is generally not an option when you lease. You also don’t have to worry about wear and tear as much since you own the vehicle. However, you will get less out of it when you sell it if it isn’t in good condition.
Both options are great ways to drive an INFINITI but are suited to different types of buyers. Consider how you drive, how far you travel, and how you care for your vehicle before choosing which route to take.

INFINITI Service Description
Keep your INFINITI running like a dream with regular service. The Glendale INFINITI service department provides a wide range of services for your vehicle designed to keep it in prime condition.
Oil Change Service
An oil change is one of the most basic and crucial service tasks you can have done on your vehicle. The oil provides lubrication, while the oil filter helps keep out road debris and dirt. When the oil needs to be replaced, it makes the engine work harder. The filter gets clogged up as well, rendering it ineffective at doing its job. Regular oil changes allow your engine to perform efficiently and reduce wear and tear on all the components. It also helps maintain market value when you are ready to sell it and upgrade to a new INFINITI.
Along with an oil change, the service technicians will perform a multi-point inspection to alert you to any other components that may show wear and tear and need to be replaced. With INFINITI Express Service, you don’t even need to make an appointment. Just come in, and the service team will get you in and out quickly.
Keep your tires rotated for more even wear on the road and better contact with the pavement. Rotating tires should be done regularly, and the service team at Glendale INFINITI can tell you when it is time to have yours done. A tire rotation also extends the life of your tires to reduce the cost of having them replaced too soon. You are less likely to have a flat tire or damage other components when you have the tires rotated as recommended by the manufacturer. Along with rotating your tires, the technicians will check for punctures and inspect the tread to let you know when it’s time to have them replaced.
Air Filter Service
Replace the air filter on your INFINITI vehicle for optimal performance. A clean air filter allows more air into the system and helps keep it from overheating. When the air filter gets dirty and clogged up, the efficiency of the vehicle can go down. It makes the engine work harder as well as the coolant system. You may notice a decrease in gas mileage and a reduction in overall performance when the air filter needs to be changed.
Don’t get stranded on the highway or be late for work or an appointment with a battery that won’t start. The service department at Glendale INFINITI will test your battery to tell if it needs replacing. If the battery is still good, they will look for other issues that may be related. They can also remove corrosion or replace battery cables when needed and check the alternator.
Signs that you may need to get a new battery include having to jump-start the vehicle, slow cranking when you start the engine or clicking noises, the interior lights starting to dim or a warning light on the dashboard appearing. If you notice a problem, just drop by, and the service technicians will test the battery for free. Use Express Service to get in and out with no appointment necessary.
Your vehicle uses various fluids to keep the different components running smoothly. This includes the transmission, power steering, and braking. Over time, these fluids get dirty and aren’t as effective. The fluids must be flushed out periodically, and new fluid must be put into the system. How often this needs to be done depends on the system, how much you drive, and the manufacturer’s specifications. You can check your owner’s manual on service frequency or ask the service team at Glendale INFINITI.
If you like to do your own maintenance or repairs on your INFINITI, you’ll want to use genuine OEM parts. The parts department at Glendale INFINITI carries a vast inventory of parts for various models. We keep a large stock because we know how important it is to get the part you need right away. If we don’t have a specialty part in stock, we’ll order it and have it delivered fast.
All INFINITI parts and accessories have been custom designed and fitted for the model you own. They come with a warranty for 12 months or 12,000 miles when they are installed by your dealership.
You can get a new battery, oil filters, tires, and much more at the parts department of Glendale INFINITI. The team can show you the available options for your model and budget to help you select the product that is the best fit.
