5 Fall Car Care Tips near Arlington, VA

5 Fall Car Care Tips near Arlington, VA

Let Us Take Care of Your Car!

Once you start to notice darker mornings, cooler days, and changing leaves, that can only mean one thing—autumn is on its way! Whether you can’t wait to break out your sweater collection or are dreading the first day you need to scrape frost off your windshield, getting your trusty vehicle ready for the coming season is a must. If you’re not quite sure where to start, take a look at these five fall car care tips and visit Pohanka Acura!

Windshield & Wipers

As the temperatures start to dip, you’ll likely have to start contending with a frosty windshield in the morning. Therefore, it’s crucial that you have a full supply of anti-freeze fluid and a properly functioning defroster. These will work together to quickly clear your view, so you can head to work with sufficient visibility. In addition, you’ll also want to have your wiper blades inspected, as they’ll need to be in good working order to reliably clear away debris and various forms of precipitation on the front window. Given the widespread rain we experience in Virginia during the fall months, you can be certain that your wipers will get quite the workout.

Brakes & Tires

With rain comes slick road conditions, which brings us to our next two areas to focus on. First, you can have our Service Department examine your braking system for any signs of undue wear or potential problems. If we end up determining that your pads could use a replacement, we’ll be sure to have new ones installed, so you can trust that you’ll be able to come to safe stop this autumn. Naturally, your tires also need to be in exceptional condition for this to happen, making this an ideal time to have the tread depths and pressure levels looked over. We might suggest a tire rotation or a new set, depending on how worn your current ones are.

Battery

Finally, with colder weather on the way, you’ll want to be sure that your battery is prepared. If yours was originally installed more than three years ago, it’s a good idea to have its output and charge tested to confirm that it still has plenty of electricity to offer. During this examination, our technicians will also visually inspect the battery for signs of damage, as these let us know that you’re in need of a fresh component to get your engine firing. That way, when the temperatures drop, you’ll be able to bring your model to life without fail.

Pohanka Acura hopes that these five fall car care tips near Arlington, VA, have inspired you to get your vehicle ready for the seasonal changes. If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call or submit your inquiry via the Ask a Tech tool. Either way, we’re here to help!

I appreciate this dealership enormously. Kyle Schmidt and Linda Hemmer teamed up to help me get an issue resolved in our newly purchased used car. I have purchased many cars and it is very rare to have, not just one, but two people actively work to get things right. Other dealerships should take notice. This is how to win over a customer!

My experience was so enjoyable at this dealership! I was treated with great respect and was provided with amazing service. Both of the sales people (Michael Pena and Janaka Miles)and finance person I dealt with were very informative and really provided me with the best costumer service! I have been in other dealerships in the past where people were just very pushy and rude when you were not ready to purchase the car and was just doing research. Thanks Pohanka Acura! You have gained a costumer for life!

I bought a car at Pohanka Honda in Fredericksburg. Emily helped through the process. She was so attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. I’ve always been worried about this process but she made it easy and stress free. I would definitely recommend her to everyone!

We just purchased our first Acura MDX. After doing a good amount of internet research, we went to the nearest Dealership - Pohanka Acura of Chantilly. Here we were pleasantly surprised to discover that Pohanka does tremendous volume, so is able to offer an excellent selection and pricing options. Our initial introduction to the vehicle and first test drive was expertly managed by Mr. Jason Smith. Jason was quick to ascertain our interests, providing good information for those aspects we were most interested in. He had the detailed level of knowledge which we usually need to be aware to make good decisions, and was patient with us. We did take a few days at home to decide, then returned for the sale. Thanks Jason for being a patient, laid-back but super well-informed Salesman - we appreciate - and would absolutely recommend Jason, Pohanka, and so far the MDX as well!

Steve and his team were amazing. I drive from Arlington to this location just because I cannot imagine customer service being better than this location. Specifically this time because I needed to go back to work after dropping my car off so they provided me with a loaner car although it is not supposed to happen since I was only getting my car routine service. Thank you for always accommodating! I can’t give the credit to only Steve, the whole team deserve it. Keep up the great work team!

I bought a MDX last weekend and had a great experience. Farheen is an excellent salesperson. She explained details of pros and cons for various options. She provided excellent customer service and was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. She answered all of our questions and took time to explain the options available. If you’re interested in visiting the Pohanka Acura dealership, I highly recommend Farheen as a sales agent.

Why can't I give this place 6-stars?!? My second daughter (out of six) had been saving up for a car while she goes to nursing school, found a very new, very well priced car over 8 hours from our home. I reached out to Pohanka, and worked with Joe Rinchuso in the Sales Dept. He was very informative and knowledgeable. Answered all my questions and made us feel so comfortable we drove in from Detroit, MI and purchased the car she really wanted. I really felt like we were treated like family. We were able to do a ton of the process over the phone which made things incredibly easy. Do yourself a favor, don't waste time bouncing around from dealership to dealership. If you want a zero stress/zero hassle experience. Just go right to the best!! Emma loves the car, and Sarah turns 16 in February so you probably haven't seen the last of us. Thanks Joe!!

I worked with Jason Smith to purchase a new Acura and I highly recommend both him and Pohanka Acura. As a salesman, Jason hits the sweet spot -- proactive, knowledgeable, and informative, without being pushy. He worked with us to find just the right model and trim level to fit our family's needs.

I would usually dread going to get any car services alone because I’ve had so many negative experiences with car shops ripping me off or taking care of people who “know about cars” more than I do. However, I have never experienced anything other than honesty, integrity, and excellent car AND customer service at Pohanka Acura. This is the only place I will go for routine car maintenance, and any additional services I may need. In my most recent visit a couple of days ago, Cedric Singleton was the staff member helping me for the day; he not only provided amazing customer service, but he was extremely positive, friendly, and hospitable during my entire 2.5 hour wait (I had multiple services). He checked in with me every 30 min to provide an update and was very honest about exactly what was being done and why. What services were urgent and timely vs. what could wait a couple of more months, from a cost savings perspective. HE WAS AMAZING! This is the only place I’ll take my car, every time. And from now on, I’ll specifically be asking for Cedric for assistance!
