5 Fall Car Care Tips near Annandale, VA

5 Fall Car Care Tips near Annandale, VA

With cooler temps on the way, that can only meet that fall is just around the corner. As you begin to prepare your home for the upcoming season, don’t forget to get your vehicle ready too. Not quite sure what tasks should be completed? Have no fear! Here at Pohanka Chevrolet, our Service Department is ready to lend a hand with five fall car care tips, so you can ensure that your model is ready for what’s ahead.

Visibility

One of the most obvious hallmarks of the changing seasons is the shortening of each subsequent day. Therefore, as your morning and evening commutes become gradually darker, it’s essential that you can see the road ahead, so be sure that your headlamps and taillamps are functioning properly. Our service staff can let you know if any of your bulbs are getting old and will replace burnt-out lights with a fresh component. Speaking of visibility, you’ll also want to inspect your wiper blades, as you’ll need them to be in optimal condition to keep your view free of obstructions when autumn showers roll through the area.

Traction

In addition to presenting a visual hindrance, rain and other forms of precipitation significantly reduce your traction with the pavement below, making it essential to have your tires checked out. While you’re at our service bay, our technicians will inspect both the inflation levels and tread depths. At this point, we might simply recommend rotating them around or getting a full replacement, depending on their rate of degradation. Naturally, when it comes to stopping, your tires and brakes go hand in hand. During your visit, simply request that we examine both the front and rear braking systems to confirm that you’ll be able to come to a halt even in slippery road conditions.

Oil Change

The last essential fall service we’d like to cover is an oil change. No matter the time of year, your engine needs a clean supply of this lubricating fluid in order to operate properly. This becomes even more important when the weather starts to cool, as your powertrain will need to work harder to warm up and get you moving. For this reason, we always recommend that customers get an oil change at this point in time. Doing so also affords us the opportunity to check out your engine filter and other key components under your model, which helps us to see if anything else might require our expert capabilities.

After reading these five fall car care tips near Annandale, VA, contact the team at Pohanka Chevrolet to inquire about any additional items that you might want to cover. Thankfully, we don’t require appointments, so you can simply pay us a visit whenever it’s convenient for your schedule!

I used to live in Chantilly and bought a new Tahoe here in 2004. The consistently outstanding service level has brought me back even though I’ve moved around quite a bit. I’m now in a 2015 Tahoe LTZ at 99,999 miles and I just had another amazing experience last week. From the free loaner car to the quick and fair service I love this place!

Andrew and Hunter came through with a better rate, experience and price of my 2020 camaro lt1. In fact I was sitting at another chevy dealership compteplating about selling my life away. Lucky for me that I answered the phone to receive the good news. I live 3 hours away and it was definitely worthwhile to make the drive

I had a chance to work with Samantha and Adam on different occasions. Since bought my car, back in 2015, I always had great experience. However, yesterday Adam went above and beyond to help me, he found a solution and I appreciate it very much. Adam you rock! Because of the whole service team, all this years, I'm returning back.

Just purchased a 2019 Toyota 4Runner from Pohanka Chevrolet in Chantilly VA. Here is the kicker. We live in Myrtle Beach,SC. We located the exact vehicle we were looking for at this dealership and purchased it sight unseen. We worked with Anuj and Mike Waters, the Sales Manager. What a simple and great experience. Mike was honest, upfront, and even went the extra mile to have Anuj meet us half way since it was nearly a 7 hour drive. The entire experience was sweet and simple. While it can be scary making such a large purchase way away from home, both Anuj and Mike made it smooth and effortless. Also a shout out to Hunter in finance as he was able to get us a Great rate on financing. Again, the process could not have been any easier. Highly recommend Pohanka Chevrolet. Ask for Mike or Anuj .......you won’t be sorry. Thanks guys so much.

Pohanka Chevrolet and in particular Jayson and Hunter are the reasons that my faith has been restored in dealerships. Well this dealership, Jayson and Hunter in particular are the only people I would deal with in the future. Jayson is by far the most patient, kind, and friendly salesman that I have ever experienced. I am a fickle person when it comes to anything with a high dollar price tag and Jayson stuck it out with me and gave it his all. There was no pressure, there was no sense of dishonesty, and most of all my girlfriend and I felt very comfortable with him when we met upon our arrival. We test drove other vehicles on the same day they don't even come close to the type of service and treatment we received from Jayson at Pohanka. Hunter was our financial manager and he was nothing short of kind, relate-able, and professional. He is someone I would be more than happy to work with in the future as well. I had to take one start off because there was an error made towards the end with the discussion of the extended warranty I wanted to purchase, but Hunter made it as right as he possibly could and owned up to the error. This would not deter me in the future at all. We are grateful that a vehicle that we were interested in landed in the hands of Jayson, Hunter, and Mike Waters at Pohanka Chevrolet. Kudos to all of you for what you do.

Had an easy experience I worked with Brian Pearson to find the car that worked best for me. Definitely recommend asking for Brian, he was a no pressure salesman who knew a lot about the cars and didn’t mind me taking my time.
