INFINITI's Ambition 2030 Provides Glimpse of Remarkable Future | Syracuse, NY

Take a peek into the future of driving. INFINITI’s Ambition 2030 showcases the automaker’s goals for the near future, which include improving sustainability, creating more electrified vehicles, and lowering the brand’s emissions. 

“Today, we announce that not only will most of the vehicles we sell by 2030 be electrified, but also that those vehicles will embody our unique take on modern Japanese luxury,” stated Peyman Kargar, INFINITI Chairman. “They will be daring, forward, and centered around the human experience.”

Since the INFINITI brand launched in 1989, the automaker has put people’s needs at the forefront. For most of the company’s history, this has meant prioritizing comfort, ergonomics, safety, and technology. While this philosophy will continue, INFINITI will also set its sights on electrification, as proven by projects like the QX Inspiration concept.

This fully electric concept crossover features a spacious cabin, a sleek, aerodynamic exterior, and design details inspired by the minimalist elegance of Japanese lacquerware and ceramic work. And while the QX Inspiration isn’t headed to the assembly line, it illustrates the brand’s plans to create vehicles that are stunningly gorgeous, remarkably comfortable, and environmentally sustainable. On top of that, it showcases the potential for the spacious, comfortable interior enabled by EV architecture.

Figuring Out the Strange Smells From Your Car’s Air Conditioner

Figuring Out the Strange Smells From Your Car’s Air Conditioner | Syracuse, NY

Spring has sprung in Syracuse, and warmer temperatures are on the way. That means your car’s air conditioner will need to be ready to stand up to summer’s sweltering heat. While your INFINITI may be equipped with handy features like automatic climate control, there’s nothing luxurious about suffering through smelly air flowing from the vents. Here’s a look at some common causes of a stale-smelling AC unit.

If your car’s air conditioning smells like a musty, mildew-infested basement, there’s probably an issue with its under-hood air intake vent. However, this can also point to mold in the vents or a leaky drain tube spilling water into the cabin.

Sweaty odors mean that it’s time to look under the hood. If dust, dirt, and bacteria have built up in the cabin air filter, it can leave your car smelling like a dirty locker room. Swap the filter to have fresher air.

A strange, sweet, syrupy smell indicates an issue with a leaky heater core. And if you’re picking up a chemical odor, it likely means that the refrigerant in the AC evaporator has sprung a leak.

If you need help diagnosing and removing a strange scent from your car’s climate control system, schedule a visit with the factory-trained experts at the Lowery Bros. INFINITI of Syracuse service center.

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.
