Great customer service as usual. I purchased my car at Pohanka Honda, Capital Heights, MD and it is my only service/maintenance location. My Advisor on January 5, 2020 was George Williams (804). Mr. Williams was very professional and courteous.

My wife and I recently purchased our second new Odyssey from Pohanka (2020 and 2015 models). All of the people that we encountered were very friendly and knowledgeable. We were quite pleased with Pohanka service on our 2015 Odyssey, and intend to continue with our 2020 EXL.

Brian and Noah did a great job getting my fiancé and I the car that we wanted. For buying a car on a busy Saturday, it was a relatively quick and painless process. We drove off the lot with plates and a full tank of gas :) Very friendly and knowledgeable guys.

Wow!!!!! I've been to many car dealerships but POHANKA put them all to shame. The team we worked with never made us feel intimidated or pressured for one minute. The level of hospitality was awesome. We were offered freshly brewed coffee and water. The Rep we had was so young he looked like he just got out of high school. We were his first customer/encounter. I will be buying my next car from Pohanka!!!!

I will say that I'm very impressed by the staff that work at this dealership. They don't beat around the bush like these other dealerships meaning the side dealerships. If I ever get my car I will be coming to Pohanka Honda

Initially , I was livid when coming to get my vehicle serviced to get my vehicle serviced for a new rim & tire . I got the most terrible customer service from the representative Don , he had no interest in helping me and was not knowledgable about transportation for me to get to the rental company nearby, ( called myself got in touch within seconds) unclear communication between him and the parts service manager. I was completely disgruntled until returning the following day with my father, we were fortunate to get to interact with Horace who literally saved the day and wasn't afraid to get his hands dirty and actually observed what was going on with my vehicle , and made me aware that another tire was going ball (no he didn't up sell me ,because I already knew I needed them replaced being that my mechanic let me know the last time I went for routine maintenance) I literally just wanted to work with someone with simple emotional intelligence & that could assist me swiftly. Horace was the guy. He kept in contact with me the entire time my vehicle was being serviced and kept me posted with any updates up until my car was ready. I'm truly satisfied & happy my warranty covered one of my tires and I was able to replace the other, at little to no cost.

They're really enthusiastic about selling their electric cars! They have a special program for low income customers and will work with you to get you in one. Good deal for $30,000 if you can afford it! Good luck!

We know you’ve heard it a million times before, but it’s always worth it to be reminded to stay consistent with oil changes. At Pohanka Honda, our team of expert mechanics recommends having this procedure performed at regular intervals. Doing so will keep your precious ride in optimal condition for as long as possible.

Timeline

Oil changes are a crucial part of proper automotive care. Without this slick liquid lubricating your engine, your vehicle will sustain more wear and tear than normal, leading to some serious expenditures in the future if you let things get out of hand. On top of that, oil prevents your powertrain from creating too much friction, which can damage the most sensitive components under the hood due to excess heat. Although most technicians insist that you should have this operation performed every 5,000 miles, check your car’s Owner’s Manual for a better idea of when you should drop by our Service Bay.

Warning Signs

If you’re not sure when the last time was that you had an oil change, there are several warning signs that you can look out for. First off, most modern vehicles come with a check engine light or oil change light. If this is currently illuminated in your vehicle, you’ll definitely want our team to get to work as soon as possible. On top of that, the smell of oil inside the cabin can notify you that your ride is suffering from a leak. However, the most obvious way to see whether or not you need to have this routine maintenance performed is if your oil is dark and has particulates in it. To check, open the hood of your vehicle and take a look at the dipstick.

Our Service Department

If you discover that your oil is low or that it’s not as clean as it needs to be, pay our dealership a visit any day of the week. We have extended hours from Monday through Friday, which means we’ll be able to accommodate you and your busy lifestyle. You can schedule your service from our website or by calling us at 240-392-3665. Alternatively, you’re welcome to stop by unannounced whenever you find free time in the week. If you’d prefer to change your auto’s oil yourself, you can also utilize our Part Department and order the supplies you need with ease!

So, when should I change my oil? Now that you know it’s every 5,000 miles, you’ll be able to keep up with this maintenance without forgetting. Visit Pohanka Honda today at 1772 Ritchie Station Court in Capitol Heights, MD.
