New drivers may not be aware of the signals their cars give them or the routine maintenance needed to keep the vehicle running. Our Maryland Hyundai specialists have a few tips to help new and seasoned drivers keep their car running longer.
One of the most basic ways to keep your car running is to perform routine maintenance. Bring your car into our Maryland Hyundai service center for get fluids changed, tires rotated and changed, and oil and air filters replaced.
It may seem obvious, but pay attention to the check engine light. Our Maryland Hyundai mechanics are surprised that many people do not know that a solid light means there is an issue, but you have time to get to a mechanic. However, a blinking light means you should get off the road right away because immediate attention is needed.
Do you often see your low fuel light or wait until you are in the red to get gas? This is very bad because fuel-injected engines rely on gas to cool and lubricate its components. When you are at the last line, you could be running on fumes, which can result in costly repairs.
Take care of your tires, they are your connection to the road. Simply check for deflated tires before you get in your car and when you are at gas stations. Proper inflation can lead to better gas mileage, but improper inflation could lead to blowouts.
These are just a few tips to help keep you on the road. If you have hear an unnatural noise, your tires are slipping, or if any lights are on please feel free to ask the technicians at Pohanka Hyundai of Salisbury, Maryland.

As a leading Hyundai dealer in MD, Pohanka Hyundai certainly has a lot of support to be grateful for. The dealership, of course, is quick to lend a helping hand when the opportunity to do so is presented.
One recent event in which Pohanka Hyundai was fortunate enough to take part was a golf tournament at one of Maryland’s premiere golf courses, Lake Presidential. The dealership was thrilled to be able to sponsor the tournament, which benefited a pair of highly deserving organizations.

Through the golf tournament, the J. Franklyn Bourne Bar Association, Inc. was able to raise funds for scholarships. These scholarships will benefit deserving students in high school, college, and even law school.
In addition to the J. Franklin Bourne Bar Association, Inc., the MD Hyundai dealership was also excited to be working with Operation Homefront. Funds raised at the golf tournament will aid Operation Homefront in the wide range of work they do to help military families during difficult times.
