Total Ownership Experience Extends During the Summer Season

Summer can be tough on cars, especially that high temperatures affect the batteries and burden the cooling system, as well as the tires. As a precaution, vehicle components should be checked periodically during summer to help avoid breakdowns and complications.

INFINITI actively aims at providing customers with the Total Ownership Experience; which incorporates the highest levels of service and hospitality throughout the ownership period. In this spirit, INFINITI Lebanon's service center at Rasamny-Younis Motor Company brings you the following tips:

  1. Excessive heat and overcharging shorten the life of a battery. To get the most life out of a battery, INFINITI recommends having the electrical system checked to make sure it is charging at the correct rate. If corrosion accumulates on battery terminals, it becomes an insulator and inhibits the current flow.
  2. To keep the cooling system working effectively, the coolant and distilled water mixture for a vehicle's radiator should be checked to prevent any loss in the mixture specification. As a reminder, refrain from opening a hot radiator cap when checking the coolant level in the reservoir.
    As a rule of thumb, the coolant should be checked every 6 months on most vehicles. This will keep the cooling system fresh and clean inside, which helps prevent corrosion and assures proper boiling point and protection. A pressure test, thermostat test, a cooling fan test and a visual inspection for leaks and corrosion should also be done annually.
  3. Tires also need special care in warmer weather as high temperatures put added stress on them. To maximize tire life and safety, INFINITI Lebanon recommends to check the tire condition and inflation pressure monthly, and have the tires rotated every 6,000 miles.
  4. INFINITI reminds all customers that the vehicle's exterior also can be damaged by sunlight, UV radiation, as well as salt, dirt and air pollution. To protect the paint and finish, vehicles should be washed weekly and waxed every six months.

RYMCO provides a Comprehensive Service Program to INFINITI owners which covers more than the regular scheduled maintenance. The service center welcomes customers on weekdays until 4:00pm and Saturday until 1:00 pm.
