Customers at our Maryland Volkswagen dealership are all about having fun. With the legendary precision of German engineering, there’s no denying that the vehicles in our showroom deliver when it comes to energetic performance and spirited handling.
We’re not the only ones who appreciate the tight handling of the Volkswagen lineup, either. Funny Or Die recently featured the 2015 Volkswagen Golf in a video entitled “The Way Too Helpful Neighbor,” starring veteran comedian Rob Huebel. When an unprepared boyfriend gets a call that his girlfriend’s parents will be visiting in a few hours, his neighbor (played by Huebel) arrives to save the day.
The pair of neighbors rush off to Target in the 2015 Gold to pick up supplies to spruce up the apartment. While the car’s owner wants to park far from the store to protect his beloved 2015 Golf, Huebel’s character has other ideas and pulls right into the store to pick up a long list of pillows, blankets, and boxed furniture.
While you probably won’t be whipping through the aisles of your local department store anytime soon, the skit still does a great job of showing off the tight cornering and sporty handling that the 2015 Volkswagen Golf brings to Maryland drivers.
In addition to offering an incredibly spirited fun side, the 2015 Golf also brings plenty of practical space to the table. While we’re not sure if Huebel’s character is right about credenza being Italian for “husband material,” it’s definitely impressive to watch him slide two of them into the back of the 2015 Golf along with an ottoman, area rug, bar stool, and throw pillows.
Even if you’re not planning on any emergency redecorating, the 2015 Golf is the perfect model for handling all of life’s unexpected curveballs and having a ton of fun along the way.

When you’re involved in an automobile accident, it’s easy to become flustered or overwhelmed in the aftermath. It’s important to keep your head on straight, though, as handling an accident correctly can play a big role in how quickly you get back on the road.
At our VA collision centers, we’re no strangers to the confusion that can follow an accident. What do you do first? Who do you call? What are your legal responsibilities? Our expert team can help you approach things efficiently to get things back in order quickly.
The first and most important priority after an accident is ensuring that you, your passengers, and other motorists involved are all safe. Check for other vehicles or hazards before leaving your vehicle, and then check on the wellbeing of all others involved. If necessary, calling for medical assistance should always be the first step after an accident.
Next, be sure to stay at the scene and address all of your legal responsibilities. You’re lawfully obligated to call the police to file an accident report, and you also need to exchange contact and insurance information with other drivers.
After that’s taken care of, it’s time to visit one of our collision centers in Virginia to get your vehicle back into top shape. You have the right to choose the shop where your vehicle is repaired after an accident, and at Pohanka Collision we go above and beyond to make it as easy on you as possible.
Once you file your initial insurance claim, our expert team will take care of the rest. Whether we’re approved by the involved insurance agency right off the bat or need to file additional paperwork, you won’t need to handle the hassle. Our office we’ll make sure things are in order while our certified technicians get to work repairing your vehicle.
As long as you remember these key steps after an accident, you can count on being back on the road sooner than you think. For more information on our expert repair process, or to schedule a damage review appointment, be sure to contact our body shop in Virginia online or to call our team at (703) 751-5535 today!

We’ve all heard the old saying that there’s no such thing as a bad question. We can also attest, though, that there are certainly bad times to be asking them, and uncertainty behind the wheel is never a good thing.
At our Chevrolet dealer in VA, we encourage our drivers to eliminate distractions on the road whenever possible. Distracted drivers often find themselves asking unexpected questions. For instance, no one wants to be wondering Where did that pothole come from? Did I miss my exit? or Is it my turn to turn at this four-way stop? when they’re behind the wheel.
Fortunately, Chevy is an automaker that fully supports drivers who want to keep their hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road. In addition to the convenience of Chevrolet’s MyLink system, the 2015 Chevy Sonic now offers the enhanced capabilities of Siri Eyes Free.
In most situations, your best bet is always to let a message wait until you arrive at your destination and shift into park. When you’ve got an important message to send, though, the 2015 Chevrolet Sonic at our VA dealership offers Siri Eyes Free for limited hands-free functionality.
Drivers with compatible iPhone devices will be able to interact with Siri through this available system in the 2015 Sonic, making it easy to communicate without sacrificing your focus behind the wheel.
The technology in the 2015 Sonic doesn’t stop there, either. SiriusXM Satellite Radio makes it easy to find the perfect entertainment for your ride, or you can choose to stream your favorites with great services like TuneIn, Pandora, or Stitcher. The 2015 Sonic is also available with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot to keep you connected no matter where you’re headed.
While this advanced technology might not tell you whether or not you can make it to the next rest stop without a snack, it’s sure to make the trip a lot more fun. For more information on the 2015 Chevrolet Sonic, or any of Chevy’s other new models, be sure to contact Pohanka Chevrolet online or to give us a call at (703) 968-6677 today!
