Prepare Your Vehicle for Summer Travel in Capitol Heights, MD

Prepare Your Vehicle for Summer Travel in Capitol Heights, MD

     

There’s nothing quite like waking up to the sun shining through your window in the summer. With so many possibilities in the day, you’ll want to be sure your ride is just as ready as you are to hit the road. That’s why we at Pohanka Honda in Capitol Heights recommend giving your vehicle the attention it deserves. To find out what you can do to ensure your time carving through traffic goes off without a hitch, continue reading below.

Sanitize

Would you prefer getting from point A to point B in a vehicle with crumbs and other debris sprinkled throughout the interior or in a car that has a pristine cabin? The answer is obvious whether you’re the driver or passenger! For that reason, we strongly suggest using a vacuum cleaner to remove any remains from chips and other snacks. Additionally, you can also enhance your safety by taking the time to sanitize areas that are frequently touched, such as the steering wheel, door handles, radio knob, and center console. You can do this most effectively with a solution that contains alcohol, as this will kill germs and other unseen organisms.

Maintenance Tips for Your Cabin

Cleaning and sanitizing the interior is just the first step when it comes to your cabin, as you can also improve your time on the road by performing a few maintenance procedures. Right off the bat, we recommend having one of our trained professionals take a look at your air conditioning system, as this will make it far less likely that you’ll suddenly find yourself without cool air. Moreover, if you want to be confident that the air you breathe is free from unwanted contaminants such as smog, pollen, or spores, consider switching out your cabin air filter for a new one. For more tips from our team, give us a call.

Exterior

The exterior of your vehicle is just as important as the areas we’ve already covered, so let’s finish up by talking about what you should think of when it comes to everything outside of the cabin. For starters, pop the hood and make sure your car’s fluids are still in good condition. If you find that the oil or transmission liquid needs to be changed, visit our Service Department to have a professional handle it. From there, examine the tires for uneven wear. If you notice the tread is diminishing on one side and not the other, have us rotate the position of your wheels. Last but not least, to have confidence when there’s a downpour, replace your windshield wipers if they’re cracked or dried.

After you prepare your vehicle for summer travel in Capitol Heights, MD, you can take off on adventures with peace of mind. The technicians in the Service Department of Pohanka Honda in Capitol Heights can’t wait to assist!

Summer Car Tips:

  • Vacuum the Interior
  • Sanitize Hot Spots
  • Use an Alcohol Solution to Kill Germs
  • Replace Cabin Air Filter
  • Rotate Your Tires
  • Get an Oil Change

     

Sanitize the Interior!

I had a great experience at Pohanka. I worked with Lamin Matthews who was persistent but patient. I took about 8 weeks to make a decision and he kept in touch with me during that time. Once I knew what I wanted, I got a very fair price quote and bought the car the next day. The sales folks at Pohanka were efficient and took my info over the phone so that a lot was done before I arrived. Lamin took the time to explain the electronics of the car to me even though it was past closing time. Everything went really smoothly and I would recommend Pohanka.

My Service Rep. Don Curtis from the minute I called to say I was experiencing car trouble and needed to bring my car in for service he was there with a calm, patient and assuring voice. stating they would assess the trouble and he would let me know the problem. He called to let me know they had identified the problem and the cost and called again to let me know when my car was ready. He was there when I arrived to pick up my vehicle to see if I was satisfied. NOW THAT'S 5-STAR SERVICE!

Great experience buying my car here. The salesperson was very knowledgeable about the different models and easily explained the features. Of course the negotiations are always my least favorite part in car buying. Sometimes the sales managers will try to take advantage, but that wasn’t the case. I did my research and stood firm on my price range and we met in the middle. They wanted to sell a car and I wanted to buy one. And the team at Pohanka Honda made that happen!

My service advisor Don was very professional and helpful. My son lost his car keys and we had the car towed to Pohanka Honda to have new keys made. I received an email immediately from Don informing me he would be my point of contact. The service was fast and efficient. Great experience

I received a coupon for various Maintence for my car in the mail. I called and spoke to a very friendly Jeremiah yesterday. He was wonderful from the initial phone call all the way through my visit. He was very knowledgeable and patient which was perfect for someone like who does not know much about my car except put it in drive and go lol. I will be making all of my upcoming Maintence decisions with Jeremiah from now on.

I was a walk in at Honda's Service Center and I had a long list of maintenance for my vehicle. Everyone was professional and pleasant during my visit, and the wait was not as long as I expected. I was updated on my car regularly by my service tech, Marcus and I very much appreciated it.

I recently had my car serviced at Pohanka Honda Capital Heights, MD and it was an excellent experience. I worked with Service Advisor, Brian Smith who was extremely knowledgeable, honest, and very attentive. I arrived around 9ish a.m., (with no appointment) and was outta there in a timely fashion. Brian was very professional and made every effort to ensure I was fully aware of what was going on with my vehicle. Now there were a few issues that came up to a steep total but Brian was very honest with letting me know what was essential to the lifespan of my Honda and what could wait. This little act of consciousness on his behalf was really appreciated because it showed me that Pohanka wasn't trying to drain me dry of all my coins! Thanks Brian and the rest of the Pohanka team!

I didn't realize that the opening time had changed from 6am. I waited until 7:45, otherwise, the day went along just fine. The oil change was quick and efficient. I have never had any problems with oil leaks after my numerous oil changes at Pohanka.Continue the good work and thanks for the great service

My overall experience was good.. my service person Marcus was very helpful and his trainee.. the only negative was a customer in the facility that did not have a mask on. He chose to keep walking around. I didn’t hear anyone address him. I was very uncomfortable..
