So far, we’ve been lucky enough to have a relatively mild winter. The season can shift in the blink of an eye, though, which means it’s important to be ready for things no matter how the wind blows.
The best time to prepare, of course, is before disaster strikes. Our College Park area Honda dealership has some tips to help you get ready!
It’s always a good idea to make sure that you’ve got the basics covered. Items like a cell phone charger, flash light, and jumper cables should always be tucked away in your glove compartment or trunk for access when necessary. Be sure to periodically check the batteries in items that have them!
While you’re double checking things, take a peek and make sure your spare tire is properly inflated and in good shape. If you have questions about your spare tire, jumper cables, or anything else, the team at our Honda service center near College Park is happy to shed some light.
Winter weather calls for its own brand of emergency preparedness, and it’s crucial to stock up on the items you’ll need before you need them. If you end up stuck in the snow, you’ll be glad you did.
Start with the things you’ll need to be comfortable if you need to spend some time waiting. A change of warm clothes, extra socks, and blankets are key if you can’t keep the heat running; the car should only be running if you’re sure there’s no snow blocking the exhaust. Also pack some water and snacks, just in case.
Next up, grab the items you may be able to use to get out of a tight spot. Keeping a small snow shovel and a bag of salt in your trunk can make the difference between a brief annoyance and an hours-long wait!
Wherever you’re headed this season, our team wishes you a safe journey! If you have questions about preparing for the season, be sure to contact us online or to call the Pohanka Honda team at (301) 899-7800 today.

At our Honda dealership, our team comes from many different walks of life. As a result, we have many different traditions for the holiday season!
No matter what you’re celebrating or whom you’re with, starting some new traditions is a great way to solidify the holiday spirit with your friends or family. Check out some of our favorite, and hop to it!
Decorating together is a great way to set the mood for the season. Whether you’re decorating the tree, setting up a model railroad or village, or hanging lights outside, getting together to decorate is a great way to start the season off on the right foot.
The kitchen is another great place to get everyone together. Whether you’re sharing a meal or cooking together, nothing brings people together like food!
Some good suggestions for the season include baking cookies, mulling cider, or building gingerbread houses.
The holidays create plenty of opportunities for seeing something exciting. Many towns host holiday themed plays, or show classic holiday movies for locals to attend.
Another classic option is to get everyone bundled up, climb in the car, and drive around town checking out the lights and decorations. Be sure to note which streets and houses have the brightest lights so you can come back next year!
Getting out to enjoy the cold weather is the perfect way to make sure no one gets cabin fever. Little ones, in particular, are sure to love a day spent building a snowman or sledding. Breaking out the ice skates is a great way to pass some time, too. Whatever you do, just be sure to get everyone warmed up with some hot cocoa afterwards.
No matter what traditions you’re embracing this year, be sure to share them with the people you care about. From Honda of Chantilly to you and yours, have a great holiday season!

An unfortunate reality of many purchases is that they may fail to live up to your expectations once the novelty of the purchase wears off. One group of shoppers that doesn’t have to worry about this, though, is Lexus fans.
The team at our VA Lexus dealership is always thrilled to hear back from our customers, many of who are return buyers. This is doubtless due to the automaker’s penchant for producing vehicles that leave motorists feeling satisfied long after they drive off the lot.
Another contributing factor is the exceptional knowledge and attentiveness of those who help shoppers, like the team at Pohanka Lexus. In fact, the J.D. Power U.S. Sales Satisfaction Index (SSI) recently revealed just how satisfied customers are with their experiences while shopping for Lexus vehicles!
In the J.D. Power U.S. Sales Satisfaction Index, each automaker is ranked in a variety of categories, culminating in a score out of 1,000 points. At 741 points, Lexus ranks significantly above the overall industry satisfaction score of 686.
Thanks to this impressive score, Lexus ranks as the third highest luxury manufacturer brand in terms of customer sales satisfaction. The brand also ranks as the highest among Japanese automakers.
At our Lexus dealer in VA, we’re proud to embody the spirit that leaves the brand’s shoppers so satisfied. The White Glove Treatment that you’ll receive during every visit to Pohanka Lexus is focused on providing an informative, helpful, and stress-free environment. It is our firm belief that this atmosphere allows shoppers to take their time shopping, to ask as many questions as they like, and ultimately to choose the vehicle that fits them best.
If you’ve been eager to find the vehicle and dealership that help you to appreciate the little things, then Pohanka Lexus is your next stop. To learn more, be sure to contact us online or to call our team at (703) 968-9100 today!
