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.

After work, I came in for a quick oil change at Pohanka Chevrolet. This dealership is known for their no appointment necessary policy, and they are open until 11pm weekdays. Best of all, if you come in after 6pm be sure to ask for their 10% discount known as the "Night Owl Special". They performed service quickly, gave me a courtesy safety inspection at no charge, and returned my car clean (if you ask for the courtesy car wash). Their waiting lounge has complementary WiFi, tea or coffee, charging stations, and comfortable leather seating. If you want a 5-star experience for servicing your vehicle, Pohanka Chevrolet is the place to go.

I loved the fact that Chevy is now providing a service of picking your car up from your location and have it serviced so fast and return it back at your location. Adam who came to pick up my car is so professional and so polite and after the service was done, he explained to me the services done on the car including the recall on my car. Another convenient factor about Pohanka Chevrolet is that, they work on weekends as well and even before COVID, I had never had to take a time off from my work to service my car. Thank you for your professionalism and impeccable customer service!

Brought my Colorado in for the annual state safety inspection. As always the service department was friendly, courteous, and efficient. I was quickly checked in and they provided shuttle service to local place of work. The work was quickly done and I was notified via phone and text. That evening, when I was finished at work, they sent a shuttle to brinback to the shop. Check out was also quick and efficient. Did I mention that since I bought my Colorado there, the inspection is complimentary.

They literally made the process so easy. I was worried the problem with my car was going to be a real headache however the folks at pohanka chevy took care of the issue within a matter of about an hour. Called me back and also provided a complimentary wash and vacuum. Such a smooth and easy process. They are very competent at this dealership and i will be servicing my car with them in the future.

I had to have my side mirror replaced after it was caught on the side of my garage while backing into the garage. This is the second time & it cost twice as much this time, but I don't know why. I was asked if I wanted to have my inspection done while I was there, it was due in two weeks, they vacuumed & washed my car while there.

I never thought I would say this about purchasing a car from a dealership: We had an AWESOME car buying experience at Pohanka Chevrolet in Chantilly, VA. Sales Consultant Jayson B. was extremely knowledgeable, attentive, and HUSTLED to make our car purchase happen. He patiently answered all of our questions, was able to provide options (purchase vs. lease), and was NEVER pushy. Hunter B., the Business Manager, provided us the best options for financing and finalizing the deal. Parker T., the GM, even came out to thank us for coming in to make a purchase. Cannot say enough good things about this sales team.

Pohanka Chevrolet in Chantilly is our go-to dealership. Their attentive and knowledgeable service department employees and their convenient hours and no appointment necessary service are stellar. Were it not for their service department, we would not have purchased our new truck from Pohanka. I shouldn't have been surprised to find that the sales staff is just as attentive and personable. I have been coming here for several years for service and I don't see that changing.

Had a flash update performed for a Chevy HP air intake on my SS Camaro. In & out in ~1 hour no issues, engine is very reactive now and very smooth acceleration. Before flash acceleration was choppy. Pohanka Service was great but please bring your mask while you wait.

I've had my 96 GMC Sierra 2500 6.5L diesel serviced by Pohanka Chevy for several years. These guys have bent over backwards for me on several occasions from working late on my truck to providing me with a loaner literally after closing time. They have successfully fixed every issue in a professional and courteous manner. I know I could probably get my vehicle serviced cheaper elsewhere, however, I know that Pohanka provides a great service and have great mechanics that will do it right and have never tried to sell me on work that does not need to be done. To the Service Advisors to the Mechanics to the folks that move the vehicles to the Cashiers and the rest of the Staff, thanks.
