Excellent service on both of my Acuras. Quick, efficient and super friendly service personnel. I also appreciate the late hours of the Service Dept. - made it easy to get in when convenient.

- David F., YELP

I am always very satisfied with my visits for service to this Pohanka. The service reps are spot on. I drop my car, go into the computer stations, due some work and in no time, my car is ready. My rep this time was very informative and made very good suggestions. Thanks for making my visits easy...

Great personal service from Erkin. Always there for me and explains everything clearly. I have an older (2004) TSX... a great car but getting a little long on the tooth. Erkin and Pohanka techs keep it running just fine. Any repairs are fully explained and gone over before being made. Erkin...

I worked with Calvin Strahin and Rick Prami at Pohanka Acura internet sales team. It was an excellent experience. I started out looking for a late used model RDX.

The experience was fine until they decided to tell me to fill up the gas tank on the rental car when I only drove the car 20 miles and the tank was still full. They really should have one of the sales consultants check the car instead of a child that checks you out.

Pohanka had a great waiting area, no appt needed, outstanding customer service and when a part was needed to be ordered they provided a complimentary loaner and it was a fabulous experience from start to finish!!
