Five Reasons to Service Your INFINITI at Factory Approved INFINITI Dealer, Charlie Clark

One of the most important aspects of vehicle ownership is staying on top of routine maintenance and service. Your INFINITI was engineered and built to exacting standards to deliver years of reliable performance. Taking care of your vehicle is the best way to ensure that it will return the favor and take care of you. The best way to ensure that your INFINITI vehicle receives the highest levels of attention and care is to have it serviced at an authorized dealership like INFINITI of El Paso. Why service your INFINITI at the dealership? Our team of service experts has assembled this quick guide that explains all the benefits and advantages that come from serving your vehicle at an INFINITI dealership.

Factory Trained INFINITI Technicians

When you visit an authorized INFINITI dealership for maintenance, service, or repairs, your vehicle will receive expert attention from the most highly skilled technicians in the industry. In fact, our team of factory-certified technicians has undergone extensive training and earned multiple certifications from the manufacturer. Their hands-on expertise and knowledge of the INFINITI brand means that they know your vehicle inside and out, better than anyone else. Why trust your INFINITI with just any mechanic? Instead, visit our team of expert technicians here at INFINITI of El Paso.

Fully Equipped Service Facility

Only an authorized INFINITI service center will have access to the latest diagnostic tools and specialized repair equipment. Especially important for communicating with the advanced electrical and computer systems found inside your INFINITI, we have the necessary tools and software to accurately diagnose and correct any potential problems. Our fully modernized service facility makes INFINITI of El Paso your top destination for all your maintenance and service needs.

Genuine INFINITI Parts and Components

Rather than settling for the questionable quality and longevity of inferior aftermarket parts and components, INFINITI of El Paso is proud to carry an extensive range of Genuine INFINITI Parts and Accessories. Designed to meet or exceed the original specifications of your vehicle, Genuine INFINITI Parts are designed to deliver years of reliable performance along with long-lasting quality.

We’re also proud to offer a fleet of INFINITI Courtesy Vehicles to our service clients as well (based on availability, see advisor for details).

Digital Service Records and Warranty/Recall Eligibility

Another advantage of trusting only an authorized INFINITI service center is the fact that you’ll have access to a digital copy of your vehicle’s service history. These digital reports feature detailed records of all maintenance and other work performed. Better still, if your INFINITI is still under warranty this means that any potential warranty claims or eligible recalls will have fully documented support. Having detailed maintenance records is also a great way to boost resale value.

Why it Makes Sense to Lease a Luxury INFINITI Vehicle from Charlie Clark

If you've been wondering if you should buy or lease your next INFINITI sedan or SUV, you should know some of the perks that go along with both. Buying is great for people who put a lot of miles on their cars or those looking to hang onto their cars for more than two or three years. But if you like driving around in the latest INFINITI model or if you're looking for a slightly lower monthly payment, then leasing might be the best choice for you. To help our customers decide which option is best for their families and their budgets, we've put together a few of the most common benefits of INFINITI leasing.

A car lease is a type of new-car financing. Unlike buying, you won't own the car at the end of the lease. Instead, you have the option to turn the vehicle in or purchase it for a predetermined price. Many leases are short-term, from two to three years typically, and give drivers the freedom, flexibility, and fun of driving a new car every few years.

Less Money Down

It's always advisable to put some money down when buying a new or used car, however, when it comes to leasing, many people find that they don't have to put down a large amount, if they have to put down anything at all. This means that shoppers might be able to get into that new INFINITI QX80 they've had their eyes on sooner than they expected.

Lower Monthly Payments

Payments made toward buying a car are higher because they're based on the full value of the vehicle. Leasing is different in that you only pay for what you use. That means only a portion of the vehicle's value comes into play. This is why you hear people say that you can get "more car for less money" when leasing. Essentially, a vehicle that was out of your price range can suddenly become easily attainable. In some cases, you may even be able to get a new INFINITI for the same price as you might pay for a late-model-year used car.

Minimal Maintenance Costs

Whether you are buying or leasing, it is imperative that you maintain your car with services like regular oil changes and tire rotations. When you lease, though, you'll find that your average maintenance and repair costs are generally lower because of the new car warranty that should cover a variety of parts and services your vehicle might need.

When leasing a luxury car or SUV, you can enjoy the confidence of having warranty coverage for most if not all the years in your term. INFINITI's bumper-to-bumper coverage lasts 4 years/60,000 miles, while the powertrain warranty lasts 6 years/70,000 miles.

End of Lease Options: Buy-out or Trade-in

This is another big perk that many shoppers love about leasing, especially if you're always clamoring to drive the latest INFINITI model. A typical lease lasts around 36 months, meaning that you can simply turn in your car when your lease term is up and drive home in a brand-new INFINITI. So, if you're looking to drive a car with the latest safety and technology features, we recommend INFINITI leasing all the way.

Top Reasons Why You Should Buy a Certified Pre-Owned Infiniti

When you love the Infiniti brand, but you would prefer to purchase a pre-owned vehicle instead of a brand new one, the Certified Pre-Owned Program offers Infiniti lovers the great experience of owning an Infiniti. After all, nobody wants to drive home with an unreliable vehicle! A Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is a luxury vehicle you can depend on for years to come. We’ll break it down and explain just what goes into qualifying an Infiniti as a certified pre-owned vehicle and why buying one might be right for you!

Differences Between “Used” and “Certified Pre-owned” Vehicles

A used vehicle is any model that has been owned or leased by at least one previous driver. All certified pre-owned vehicles are used but not all used vehicles are certified pre-owned. A certified pre-owned vehicle is a model which has passed extreme manufactured-designed tests and falls within certain age and mile limits. They also offer additional benefits to drivers! Infiniti Certified Pre-Owned vehicles combine true peace of mind with the exceptional experience of owning an Infiniti at a pre-owned value.

 

Making the Cut

Infiniti maintains exclusive requirements for their Certified Pre-Owned vehicles. Just because a car is an Infiniti, doesn’t make it acceptable for the Infiniti Certified Pre-Owned program. Every pre-owned Infiniti must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Infiniti-certified technicians
  • A clean title history
  • Sales date within six years
  • A Carfax vehicle history report be made available for the vehicle

Confidence is enhanced through Infiniti’s Certified process, which begins with a vehicle that was crafted to their exacting standards. Infiniti retailers will begin by evaluating a vehicle's history using multiple databases. The warranty database is researched to confirm warranty eligibility and the Carfax database reviews over a dozen title categories before a vehicle moves to the next step for a thorough mechanical inspection.

The Certified Inspection is the template utilized by Infiniti-trained technicians to examine all major vehicle components. The checklist covers over 167 items, including the engine, drivetrain, chassis, brakes, steering, and suspension. Infiniti also requires a thorough road test and an extra detailed inspection prior to listing the vehicle as Certified Pre-Owned.

Infiniti Certified Pre-Owned vehicles include a factory-backed, 6-year unlimited mileage warranty. The limited warranty, backed by Infiniti, also covers all major components and is inclusive of powertrain coverage.

When you are ready to purchase an Infiniti vehicle from the Certified Pre-Owned program, you can rest assured that you are getting a vehicle that meets some of the highest standards in the industry. A Certified Pre-Owned Infiniti includes benefits such as:

  • Up to 6 years unlimited mileage warranty
  • Complimentary first year’s basic maintenance
  • Comprehensive 167-point inspection
  • Carfax® Vehicle History Report™
  • Carfax® 3-year buy back guarantee
  • Available Infiniti Elite™ Extended Protection Program

Infiniti also offers a long list of extras as part of its Certified Pre-Owned program. You will get 24-hour roadside assistance for the duration of the CPO warranty, a Complimentary Service Courtesy Vehicle when servicing your vehicle with Infiniti, and a free three-month subscription for SiriusXM® satellite radio.

Throughout the duration of your Certified Pre-Owned Limited warranty, Infiniti provides you with a 24-hour roadside assistance package. The roadside assistance package helps give you additional peace of mind when you’re out on the road whether you’re in need of towing assistance, car rental assistance, and even trip interruption reimbursement! For the duration of your limited warranty, a qualified representative will assess your needs and dispatch assistance for a jump start, flat tire change, out-of-gas delivery, and lock out assistance.

Buy with Confidence

Every Infiniti Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with a complimentary Carfax® Vehicle History Report™ and a three-year Carfax® buyback guarantee! What makes it even better you might ask? You can view the Carfax® report on any Infiniti Certified Pre-Owned vehicle in inventory, at no charge to you. Based on information from more than 86,000 data sources, the Carfax® Vehicle History Report™ includes information about title information, including salvaged or junked titles, flood damage history, total loss accident history, odometer readings, and the number of owners.

Elite™ Infiniti Extended Protection Plan

 Beyond the coverage of Infiniti’s Certified Pre-Owned program, also available to you is the Elite™ Infiniti Extended Protection Plan. It provides the added security of:

  • Optional coverage of up to 8 years / unlimited miles
  • $0 deductible for parts and labor for any covered repair
  • Transfer of benefits to new owner should you decide to part with your Infiniti
  • Expanded Roadside Assistance and Reunite service, which covers cost of reuniting you with your vehicle
  • Expanded component coverage, including audio, navigation, and mobile entertainment

Comparing the Infiniti QX80 vs Lincoln Navigator

Whether you're taking a quick ride to see a show at the Plaza Theater or star gazing on an off-road trail in the Big Bend Region, you need the right vehicle to get you there. The Infiniti QX80 and Lincoln Navigator both put a luxurious, family-friendly spin on rugged performance. How can you choose just one? These full-size luxury SUVs both have so much to offer that you might not know where to begin. Luckily, we've got the specs to help you decide.

Performance

At first glance, the Lincoln Navigator may look a little more enticing than the QX80, as you'll get more horsepower courtesy of the Navigator’s 450-HP 3.5L twin turbocharged V-6. But if you dig a little deeper, you'll see why the QX80 has opted for its naturally aspirated 400-HP 5.6L V-8. Not only do you get more power to tow up to 8,500 pounds (compared to the Lincoln's 8,300), but you'll also have the assurance of trailer sway control. In addition to better towing capacity and trailer sway, the Infiniti QX80 also comes with forged 22" wheels (not available on the Navigator). The forged element ensures that the wheels grip the road as much as possible, even when the SUV is under pressure. These wheels ensure better handling for the driver, and they're strong enough to ward off every day wear and tear.

2022 Lincoln Navigator Manhattan Green Black Label. Preproduction model shown with available features. Available early 2022. Available at participating Lincoln Black Label Dealers only.

Comfort and convenience

When it comes to high-end cruising, it’s nearly impossible to choose one of these SUVs over the other. Both the QX80 and Lincoln Navigator attract a crowd with three rows of roomy seating, high-end cabin materials, and luxurious options. Both models appeal to your senses with different color leather upholstery options, wood trim, and heated and ventilated front seats. In the QX80 however, all riders can enjoy an auto air circulation feature that senses and eliminates odors. While this is recommended for everyone, it's especially valuable for those who have allergies or underlying breathing conditions. Finally, the QX80 comes packaged with soft, semi-aniline leather seats, one of the most luxurious materials on the market today.

Technology package

Both luxury SUVs come standard with an impressive list of infotainment features and modern safety aids. But it’s the QX80 that stands apart. We like its dual touchscreen take on infotainment. Other standard features include Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone connectivity, a 13-speaker Bose® stereo system, and navigation. If you want, you can always upgrade your audio experience with the optional 17-speaker audio system. The Navigator’s infotainment system doesn’t offer dual screens, but it does include a 10-inch touch-screen interface and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. If you want navigation, you’re going to have to pay extra for it.

Safety features

The QX80 also delivers more in standard safety aids. While both SUVs feature forward collision mitigation, blind-spot monitoring, and lane-keeping assist at no extra cost, the QX80 also throws backup collision intervention, object motion detection, a 360-degree parking camera, and adaptive cruise control into its standard lineup. These elements are designed to give you more control on the road, so you don't have to worry about every sudden event.

Price

The QX80 is known for its posh cabin, rugged capabilities, and family-friendly space. But it’s equally loved for its relatively thrifty price tag. In the luxury SUV segment, anyway, the QX80 is a great deal, starting at $69,050. The top-tier trim model starts at $83,300, an MSRP that’s equally attractive. Any way you look at it, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator will set you back thousands of dollars more. At the low end of the MSRP range, the Navigator starts at $76,185. Top-of-the-line models start at $101,325.

Test drive the Infiniti QX80 today

The QX80 has several competitors on the road today, but its benefits speak for themselves. When you test drive a QX80 at Charlie Clark’s Infiniti of El Paso, you'll see why this SUV has managed to come out on top in nearly every possible category. Browse our online inventory of new QX80 vehicles as well as some of our very best certified pre-owned QX80 SUVs.
