5 Easy Garage Cleaning Tips for Every Season

5 Easy Garage Cleaning Tips for Every Season | Syracuse, NY

Is garage clutter creeping up on you? Spring cleaning is a great time for a fresh start and that includes the garage.

Sort it out

The first step to clearing the clutter in a garage is to sort through and organize everything. Separate items into piles: keep, give away, sell or toss. This can be a tough decision, so decide on some criteria ahead of time. Seasonal items, such as holiday decorations or the barbeque grill should stay, unless they need to be replaced. Tools that are used regularly or sentimental items are keepers, too. The ugly lamps Aunt Rita gave you can go in the donation pile.

Scrub it Down

After you get everything moved out of the way, give the garage floor a good scrubbing. Clay kitty litter is useful for soaking up spills of oil and other fluids. Use a degreasing soap and a stiff bristle brush to clean the area and a mop for rinsing. A box fan can help the area dry faster.

While you are in the mood to tidy up, don’t forget to make an appointment for a service check-up for your car at INFINITI of Syracuse. An oil change, fluid check, and tire rotation will feel like a fresh start, too.

A Look Back on the Design History of INFINITI

INFINITI Design History | Syracuse, NY

These days, INFINITI is famous for the styling and performance of its luxury cars and SUVs. Yet, INFINITI wasn’t always the luxury powerhouse it is today. It required 31 years of expertise to rise up from humble origins to the brand’s contemporary look and feel.

When INFINITI was founded back in 1989, its lineup consisted of only two vehicles: the M30 coupe and the Q45 sedan. Even back then, the design of these model was praised by critics, along with their smooth rides.

Shortly after the beginning of the new millennium, INFINITI introduced its Infiniti G35 model. It didn’t take long for the G35 to start garnering praise, earning the MotorTrend’s 2003 Car of the Year title in its debut year.

In recent years, INFINITI has shifted its focus toward crossovers and SUVs as consumer tastes have changed. This has brought about a new wave of luxury utility models for the brand. The latest of these models to be introduced is the INFINITI QX55. A spiritual successor to the now-defunct INFINITI FX line, the QX55 not only represents what the future of INFINITI vehicles looks like, but perhaps what the future of luxury vehicles as a whole will be.

You can discover just how beautiful the INFINITI lineup is for yourself when you stop by Lowery Bros. INFINITI of Syracuse in Syracuse, New York.

INFINITI Q60 Wins the Vincentric 2021 Best Certified Pre-Owned Value™ Award

2021 INFINITI Q60 Vincentric Best Certified Pre-Owned Value Award | Syracuse, NY

The team of experts at Vincentric work to identify and calculate value in automobiles. Recently, they awarded the INFINITI Q60 with the 2021 Best Certified Pre-Owned Value™ accolade. Although one may assume that a luxury sedan wouldn’t be considered in a competition for the best value, Vincentric bases its reviews on the cost of ownership over five years, not the initial price. In that category, the Q60 excels.

When calculating the cost of ownership, Vincentric looks at costly things like maintenance and repairs, gas for the average 15,000 miles a year, taxes, and depreciation. They also account for something called opportunity costs, the amount of money that might have been spent on investments instead of buying the vehicle. According to the Vincentric study, the Q60 had a much lower cost of ownership than competing luxury coupes. It’s built to be long-lasting and crafted with quality in every aspect of its design, making it an excellent pick for buyers who want a CPO luxury vehicle.

With elegant design and multiple trim models to choose from, a pre-owned INFINITI Q60 looks sharp driving around Syracuse, New York. The 2021 Q60 is offered in both rear- and all-wheel drive, and comes with a long list of advanced safety tech. You’re likely to find similar amenities in previous model years, which boast luxury and sophistication at a great value.

How to Prep Your Luxury Vehicle for a New York Winter

Infiniti Q50 | Syracuse, NY

New York winters can be just as hard on your vehicle as they are on you. Thankfully, there are a few easy ways to prep your INFINITI vehicle for the inevitability of cold weather, thick snow, and slick ice.

Check out your tires

Proper tire care is vital year-round, but it’s especially important when you’re in the throes of winter in Upstate New York. Make sure that your tires are at the appropriate pressure and aren’t too worn down. It’s also a good idea to schedule a tire rotation or replace any if they’re in bad shape.

Refresh fluids

You should refill your INFINITI’s windshield wiper fluid reservoir with a blend that will de-ice your windshield and resist freezing when your car is stationary. Similarly, you should consider having your brake fluid replaced to prevent moisture from building up in the line.

Get new wipers

Trying to navigate a Syracuse snowstorm with old, uneven wiper blades is a recipe for disaster, especially since they’re likely to break down more quickly during the winter. Additionally, consider lifting your wipers off of the windshield when you’re done driving today in order to stop them from freezing to the glass.

If you’re looking for a place to prepare your luxury vehicle for the colder months — or if you want more winter car care tips — contact the expert service department at LOWERY BROS. INFINITI of Syracuse.

The QX55 is scheduled to arrive in showrooms in the spring of 2021, but if you’re interested in shopping now, check out the 2020 INFINITI QX60.
