Spring has sprung, and so have the annoying potholes wet winter weather left behind on some of your most frequented roads. And unfortunately, these divots in the asphalt can wreak havoc on your vehicle.
While they might not seem like a huge issue, potholes can cause costly damage to tires, suspensions and other vehicle parts. A report from AAA indicates that drivers in the U.S. spend an average of $3 billion on pothole damage repairs each year.
Luckily, there are several smart moves drivers can make to help minimize and hopefully steer clear of the damage that these rocky pavement pits might cause. Check out the roadmap below on how to avoid pothole pitfalls driving forward:
Don’t drive through puddles
When it comes to puddles, be cautious. Don’t drive a vehicle too fast through them since there may be hidden potholes that are deep and extra dangerous. If the vehicle does collide with a deep crater, don’t panic. Pull over to a safe spot on the highway or shoulder of the road right away. Slow down, check for cross traffic, change lanes and come to a stop to check for damage.
Stay alert on unfamiliar roads
When driving on an unfamiliar road, watch out for hazards. Because drivers often anticipate and avoid potholes in areas they travel often, they might not notice new ones in less frequented areas. Drivers should keep their eyes peeled in new places and proceed with caution.
Keep a safe distance between vehicles
Maintain a safe distance between vehicles on the road. Drivers will be able to spot potholes faster and more easily when they can see what’s coming. Make it a point to maintain at least a 3-second following distance between the vehicle in front of you. And remember, allow for extra space on highways and byways because it’s possible to miss a pothole when following too closely at faster speeds.
Keep up on car maintenance
If the vehicle’s tires are inflated properly when it hits a pothole, it lessens the chance of damage. When a vehicle hits a pothole with low tire pressure, the rim is more likely to be damaged and the suspension could suffer. Underinflated tires may also increase the chances of losing control of your vehicle or getting a blowout. Overinflated tires will not give as much during impact with a pothole, which could also damage the suspension. Shocks and struts in good condition, with properly inflated tires can cushion the blow.
Drive slower in the dark
Less visibility during nighttime means it can be tougher to avoid potholes. Reduce the chances of driving over them and minimize damage by taking it slow on the roads. This defensive driving tactic is especially helpful when it’s rainy or excessively windy.
Know how to hit an unavoidable pothole
Some potholes just can’t be avoided. One of the best things to do is slow down to avoid incurring vehicle damage. When the car hits a pothole, grip the steering wheel tightly to prevent it from jerking. Just don’t brake before hitting a pothole because doing so can cause damage.

INFINITI celebrates National Car Care Month with a few reasons why vehicle maintenance is so important
Keep your INFINITI on the road for years with proper vehicle maintenance. Regular maintenance can have a large impact on the performance and endurance of a drivers vehicle. There are many things that a trained INFINITI mechanic will know to look for beyond oil changes and tire tread. During National Car Care Month, schedule a service appointment that you may have been putting off.
Here are a few tips on caring for your vehicle:
Reduce time between service appointments
Don't wait for the sticker on your windshield to be past due. These service stickers often have a date written on them for the absolute longest time to wait between check-ups.
The little things matter
Small signals like brake noise, puddles of liquid left behind, noises coming from under the hood, and air conditioning not blowing as cold can all be indicators of a larger problem.
Large things matter too
If you are noticing things like loss of basic functionality or booming abnormal sounds you will need to have your vehicle serviced as soon as possible.
Look for tire inflation to help save at the pump
Improve your gas mileage with correct tire inflation

WHY REGULAR OIL CHANGES ARE IMPORTANT
We'd venture to guess that as a luxury car owner you take a lot of pride in your vehicle and desire to keep your cherished ride in optimal shape for years to come. Oil changes play a big role in maintaining engine health and it's a must for owners of luxury cars like the INFINITI Q50, Q60 and QX80 to get oil changes according to the recommended schedule.
If you need an oil change, make an appointment at our service center and bring along our INFINITI oil change coupon, or have it ready to present on your smartphone.
WHAT'S IMPORTANT ABOUT AN OIL CHANGE?
An oil change is a quick maintenance procedure, but its importance can't be overstated. Here are just some reasons it's important to change your oil:
Lubrication: Your engine's parts work together seamlessly to create the wonderful drive you enjoy every day. However, without proper lubrication they can wear down quickly, creating more serious problems down the line.
Cooling: Without oil, the heat from the engine's friction has nowhere to go. Clean oil does a better job at absorbing the heat to prevent your engine from overheating.
Cleaning: Fresh oil is better at picking up dust particles and grime that can wear down your engine over time. It's crucial to regularly replace the oil and filter so that your engine stays clean!
Our service center recommends that you change your oil every 5,000 miles, but this may change depending on your INFINITI model and regular driving conditions. Be sure to check your owner's manual for specific information.
