Why Is Routine Maintenance Important?

Why Is Routine Maintenance Important?

Let Us Handle It!

Although most individuals have been taught from a young age to keep up with routine maintenance, we still meet plenty of folks here at the Service Department of Pohanka Acura who don’t know why it’s important. Well, we’re here to tell you how maintaining the condition of your vehicle can pay off in the long run.

Longevity and Value

First and foremost, keeping up with oil changes and other tasks is an excellent way to make sure your ride is around for many years to come. It goes without saying that the longer your vehicle is in operating condition the less you’ll end up spending on cars in the future. On top of that, if you ever decide to sell your set of wheels, you’ll get more money out of it if it’s been well taken care of. With so many positives in favor of routine maintenance, it’s no wonder automotive experts have been recommending it for so long.

Timeline

Our expert mechanics understand that one of the hardest things about staying consistent with vehicle work is remembering when to have certain operations like filter changes and tire rotations done. With so much to stay on top of, we understand that it’s easy for some things to fall through the cracks. For reference in the future, you should consider having your transmission fluid, cables, battery, belt, and oil inspected every three months. After that, at the six-month mark, your chassis, air filter, and windshield wipers should be attended to. It’s also an excellent time to rotate your tires if need be. And if you really want to go the extra mile, you can clean the interior and exterior and refill the windshield washer fluid every month.

Our Service Department

If you’re ready to get the ball rolling, our Service Department can’t wait to get started. We keep our doors open during extended hours, so you’re bound to find a convenient time to drop by. As soon as you arrive, a member of our team will touch base with you to find out what you’re in need of and the general condition of your car. From there, we’ll handle all the rest while you relax in our lounge. While you wait for us to finish up, you can watch a show on one of our flat screen TVs or connect your phone to the Wi-Fi network. We can’t forget to mention that we give a free car wash for every visit, so your vehicle will look pristine by the time we hand you back the keys.

Now you won’t have to ask anyone else, “Why is routine maintenance important?” We always go the extra mile for our clients here at Pohanka Acura, so visit us as soon as you can.

I recently purchased my second Acura from Pohanka (first was in 2012) and it was a great experience. I was connected online with Nick Shirley to answer my questions regarding models and options and to complete the deal. Nick treated me very respectfully and was a very knowledgeable salesperson who took the time to answer my questions and willingly negotiated a price with me regarding my trade-in. I financed through the dealership and once again had a phenomenal experience working with Phillip “Flip” Carleton. He took the time to walk me through available financing options and helped me to make the best choices for my purchase. Both of these Pohanka team members went above and beyond to make my experience excellent. I highly recommend Pohanka Acura if you are looking to purchase a new vehicle!

My car was repaired on time and at the price quoted to me after the technician performed the evaluation and the necessary repairs. I was also provided a loaner car so as to be able to continue with my day and not sit in the waiting area while the repairs were completed. I have used Pohanka Acura several times and always receive good and professional service.

I’ve bought my fair share of vehicles over 40+ years and I can say Pohanka is by far the best experience I’ve ever had period. I literally cringe every time I have visited a dealership of any kind mostly because of poor attitudes from from the sales staff. NOT Pohanka Acura, my salesman Ricky took his time with me and explained every detail about my RDX, was never in a rush and a great attitude the entire time. Every body in the entire showroom was very welcoming. The finance manager also explained every detail of the transaction and really good to work with. Finally, Ive brought my car in to service now twice and again everyone has been great. I would certainly recommend Pohanka Acura to anyone and will continue to bring my business to them. Thank you, Charlie Grimes

My salesman, Yohn Kim was phenomenal. He made me an offer on a brand new 2020 Acura TLX that beat all other dealers' offers in the DMV area. I was in-and-out of the dealership with a price that far exceeded my expectations in less than 3 hours. I highly recommend Pohanka Acura!

Two days later, I had new features installed on my car, and Yong Kim provided me with a brand new 2020 Acura TLX (with an upgraded B6 engine) as a rental for the day. He provided me with EXCEPTIONAL service, and I look forward to working with him again in the future!

Although the process was lengthy, we felt we were treated with respect and listening to our needs. We, not only got a new car but we were also given a outstanding service! I will def go back to Amir and to Pohanka Acura for my next purchase!

I have been very pleased with Pohanka over the years. Yong Kim has helped me lease the last 3 vehicles and his professionalism and desire to help me find the best car and deal each time has been exceptional. The service department is top notch and I have never met an unfriendly person in any department I have dealt with at Pohanka. I love my new RDX! After years and years of sedans and the latest TLX's, I was not going to go with a boring SUV! This RDX is a blast to drive and I'm ecstatic that driving a truck can be fun!

Service at Pohanka Acura at Chantilly Va. Excellent Service on my 2012 Acura TL had struts and swaybar links replaced and my vehicle rides like new. I just thought the person who worked on my vehicle should be recognized as one of your best technician. Also in the service department, I want the Acura Dealership know that I received the most professional customer service from Cedric Singleton a customer can receive. I thought I should have mention this individual because he should be recognized.

I've been a customer since 1997. I've purchased two cars from Pohanka Acura. Both cars have been service here. I love the selection of cars but I love the service. This is only place I allow to service my car! Kyle Schmidt is "awesome"! He's straight forward in explaining about your repair and doesn't "BS" about what needs to be done. He tells you the price and keeps you informed on progress of your repair. When I leave I feel relieved the work was done right!!
