Winter Maintenance Checklist in Chantilly, VA

Winter Maintenance Checklist in Chantilly, VA

Making sure that your vehicle is prepared for the East-Coast winter months is an essential aspect of owning an automobile. So, if you haven’t already, make your way down to our Service Department at Pohanka Chevrolet to get your winter maintenance completed. In the meantime, take a peek at our checklist, so you can make sure all of the pertinent details are covered!

Visibility & Traction

When snow covers the road ahead, the first thing that comes to mind for most commuters is decreased traction. So, make sure to check your tires’ tread levels to ensure they are gripping the pavement ahead in an optimal manner. If you haven’t rotated your tires in a while, you can always swing by our service bay and we will get your current set switched around in no time at all. Or, if you are in the market for some winter options, navigate to the Tire Center link at the top of your screen and give us some key details about your ride. Then, you will be able to sift at your leisure. Once you have your traction taken care of, you should make sure that your headlights work and you have a fresh pair of wiper blades to clear away any visual hindrances. And, you can spring for a new batch of wiper fluid that won’t freeze when the temperatures plummet.

Beneath the Hood

The most important pieces of equipment to take care of during the frigid months can be found beneath the hood of your vehicle. For starters, you should make sure that you receive an oil change as soon as possible to ensure that your components are working in tandem. The last thing you want is to have your engine struggling to roar to life! While we are there, we will take a close glimpse at your battery to make sure it is delivering that crucial initial flicker. After all, cold temperatures can affect its capability, and if ignored, can result in a sputtering engine that requires a jumpstart. Lastly, it is crucial to add some fresh coolant to make sure your vehicle is pumping out plenty of heat to keep you warm.

Essentials

After you get all of the aforementioned steps taken care of, it is important to gather a few essentials in your vehicle to prepare for the worst. We suggest that you bring along some blankets, coats, and sweats, to make sure that you stay nice and toasty if your vehicle doesn’t start up. Then, you should bring along a flashlight if you travel in dimly-lit areas, along with a first aid kit, food, and medication. Sometimes, help can have some trouble arriving on the scene to assist, so bringing these things along will ensure you will be covered for an extended period of time. And, it is important to bring a shovel and some cat litter to help you gain some traction in case you get stuck in a snowbank.

We hope that this winter maintenance checklist in Chantilly, VA, is the reminder you needed to travel safely. When you are ready, visit our Service Department at Pohanka Chevrolet.

This was the fastest and best used car experience I've had. David Poole, Juan Andrade, and Hunter Bowles were all very courteous and professional. A great value on a good used car with a wonderful customer experience. I would definitely go back to this dealership!

My wife and I just bought a used car from Pohanka Chevrolet and had an excellent experience! We loved working with our manager David Poole. I called and spoke with him a couple days before we bought the car. He texted me a couple days later and we worked out the arrangements before we even went to the dealership. This was great since we live over an hour away. When we got to the dealership Juan Andrade went on a test drive with us. He was very professional. Once we decided to buy the car we got in right away to finalize the deal. Hunter Bowles, who is the finance manager, processed a registration transfer for us right there then printed out a new registration card. Thank you for a fabulous experience!!

Just picked up my new Blazer yesterday. My sales consultant, Anuj Bharadwaj, was great! This is the 2nd car I've bought from him and my son has also purchased a car from Anuj. He is always the ultimate, gentleman, actively listens to my concerns and doesn't pressure me on anything. I always find buying a car from him to be a pleasant experience. In addition, meeting the Business Manager, Hunter Bowles, was also a good interaction. He has wonderful customer service skills and is also pleasant to deal with. He thoroughly explained all my options for extended warranties and found me the best interest rate. I have been buying from Pohanka Chevrolet for 20 years. I do recommend this car dealership.

I came in to have 2 recalls fixed on my vehicle. I tried calling another dealership who I ended up contacting 3x and they never got back to me. I called Pohanka and they ordered the parts for me the next day. My service consultant was Adrian and he was so nice. I hate going to car dealerships as a woman because they can tell I'm totally not a car person and try to take advantage. He was really nice and made me feel very comfortable. They even offered to shuttle me to and from my house while they fixed my car! I ended up getting an oil change as well. Would def return. Thank you Adrian!

Great experience. I worked with Jason Buckley, made the deal over the phone/emails because I am out of the area. They provided me a ride from the airport and the vehicle was ready upon my arrival. I highly recommend them, their price couldn't be beat in my area.

Working with Pohanka Chevrolet was a great experience and they couldn't have made the process any easier. Andrew Brunt was very attentive to what I was looking for without the high pressure sales pitch. I was able to take advantage of the employee pricing promo which allowed me to purchase a 6 yr 75000 mile extended warranty. Hunter Bowled explained all of the details of the warranty to my wife and I and was able to provide a price that we can afford. I will definitely return for my next vehicle and will tell my friends to visit as well.

I can't say enough great things about my experience here! The entire staff was awesome - Parker and Korosh put together a fantastic deal on the exact truck I wanted. David Faulding and Jason Kersey worked together to thoroughly cover all the features and settings, and Hunter got me the exact monthly payment I was looking for. Pohanka Chevy made my experience quick, easy and a lot of fun. Thanks, guys! I'll see you for my first oil change :)

Fast service without needing an appointment. The service advisors are friendly and knowledgeable. The cashiers are always friendly as well. I appreciate the free car wash included with service. The sales inventory is plentiful, so a stroll through the lot while waiting for service is a great pre-shopping advantage.
