If you’re like most modern motorists, chances are that you spend a fair amount of time behind the wheel during your daily routine. Considering how much time you spend on the road, you owe it to yourself to choose a car that you’re going to love when it’s time to get into a new vehicle.
Choosing isn’t always easy, though. At our Virginia Lexus dealership, we know that the plethora of choices you have when shopping for a car can be overwhelming at first glance. A good way to start narrowing down your options, though, is to take a look at which models retain customer loyalty the best. This gives you a solid grasp on which vehicles leave a lasting impression on their owners.
The team at AutoGuide.com recently compiled a list of the Top 10 Vehicles with the Most Loyal Buyers, and our staff wasn’t at all surprised to see the Lexus RX 350 on the list!
As AutoGuide.com points out, the Lexus RX “has been one of the most popular SUVs in the marketplace [for decades].” The 2016 Lexus RX 350 at our Virginia showroom lives up to that impressive reputation, continuing to earn high customer loyalty after “it recently got significant changes,” as AutoGuide.com notes.
Starkly modern yet timelessly refined, the 2016 RX 350 is precisely what today’s busy drivers crave. Sharp lines culminate in a distinctly aerodynamic profile, all while showcasing Lexus’ unmistakable take on luxury design. Under the hood, this all-new crossover sports a 3.5L V6 to shell out 295 horsepower that allows for a 7.7 second 0-60 mph time.
In the cabin, sophistication reigns supreme. Hand crafted details hone in on a supreme sense of luxury, with semi-aniline perforated leather trim wrapping the cabin in refinement. Ambient lighting and a smooth, sculpted cockpit serve to make drivers and passengers alike feel more at home in the 2016 RX 350, no matter how far from home they go.
To learn more about what sets this impressive model apart for so many drivers, come see us for a test drive! You can contact Pohanka Lexus online or call our team at (703) 968-9100 today.

A vital member of your family, although it doesn’t often get the shine it deserves, is your family vehicle. You constantly load it up with the kids and your cargo as you head off to school or your family road trips, making unforgettable memories along the way. Well, what do you do when you’re in need of a new one? With the average price of a 2016 model chiming in at $34,000, according to TrueCar, a fresh new vehicle might not be in the cards.
Thankfully, our Fredericksburg used car dealer has you covered when it comes to finding a quality used car. We’ve even taken the time to outline how to find your next one.
When it comes to buying a used car, it’s really all about finding the perfect balance between price and reliability. The vehicle will certainly be too expensive if its too new and if its too old, you’ll find yourself fixing a junker. Target a vehicle that is around three years old, because chances are that they’re in near-perfect condition.
Never purchase a used car without having your own independent mechanic inspect it. Either bring the mechanic that you trust with you to the lot or see if you can drive the vehicle to your garage of choice. If the dealer declines that suggestion, you have all the information you need to be suspicious. Save yourself money down the road by letting a mechanic give the car a once over.
The next best thing to purchasing a new vehicle is buying a certified pre-owned ride. These cars are inspected by dealers, but must pass inspections that are determined by manufacturers and come with extended warranties. Yes, they will cost you a bit more than a typical used car, but you won’t have to worry about any repairs!
Luckily for pre-owned car shoppers in Fredericksburg, finding out the value of used car is much easier than it used to be. With a number of tools at your finger tips, like the GEICO Car Buying Service and Carfax, there’s no excuse to not know the history of the car. Take full advantage of these resources and do your homework.
No matter what you’re in the market for, it’s important to always think with your head and not your heart. Don’t fall in love with the look of a car because its your favorite color or a certain model. Research the car based on its reviews and try to find a ride that will be reliable! This car will drive you well into your future, so you have to make the right choice!
We can’t wait to see you use these tips when you come on in to our used car dealer in Fredericksburg. If you have any immediate questions or concerns, feel free to contact us at (540) 735-9100.

At Pohanka Hyundai, our Hyundai Dealership in VA, we have always said that the Hyundai Genesis and the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport are two of the best bangs for your buck out there, and we’re pleased to learn that they recently earned the “Best Buy” awards from Consumer Guide Automotive in their respective divisions. The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport was awarded the “Best Buy” award for the midsize crossover/SUV category, and the Hyundai Genesis was awarded the “Best Buy” award for the large car category.
“The Best Buy accolade from Consumer Guide Automotive demonstrates the unprecedented value across our lineup—from the Santa Fe crossover to the Genesis midsize luxury sedan. We won this award two years in a row, which is a testament to our continued emphasis on producing vehicles with high value and driving experience,” said Brandon Ramirez, senior group manager, product planning, Hyundai Motor America.
The criteria used by Consumer Guide Automotive to evaluate vehicles included price, features, performance, accommodations, fuel economy, reliability, and resale value. In addition, drivers for Consumer Guide Automotive test drove each of the vehicles in a variety of conditions to evaluate their practicality and adaptability.
At Pohanka Hyundai, our VA Hyundai dealer, we’re proud to offer both the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and the 2016 Hyundai Genesis. Here’s a little bit of what you can expect from this year’s new models:
The practical 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport improved on the ride and handling of previous models by enhancing the electric power steering and suspension. It also updated its Driver Selectable Steering Mode with a 32-bit microprocessor and tuned it for the firmer steering feel that was made possible by the redesigned suspension system.
The sporty 2016 Hyundai Genesis upgraded its premium-market appeal when it made HID headlights and LED Daytime Running Lights standard on all 2016 models, and added ultra-premium LED fog lights to the range of options available for the 3.8 model. The 2016 Genesis 5.0 models have done away with some of the previously available trims, refining the model’s signature look to the fully-equipped Ultimate trim designation.
While we’d be happy to tell you all about it here, the best way to see the incredible value and quality of these vehicles is to drop by or give us a call at (800) 764-2652 and see for yourself!
