When you purchase a vehicle with the Acura badge on the hood, you know that you’ve got a vehicle that’s instantly recognizable. As a proud vehicle owner, it’s only logical that you want to protect that unmistakable look.
Many of the factors that take away from your car’s look are easy to spot, like dust, dirt, and pollen. Fortunately, these are also pretty easy to rinse away. Other elements are less obvious, as the experts at our DC area Acura dealership can attest.
Rain and water spotting may not seem like the end of the world, and in ideal conditions they aren’t. Water can be a powerful force, though; a flowing river carved out the Grand Canyon, after all. While your vehicle certainly won’t be subjected to thousands of years’ worth of erosion, acid rain can still be a cause for concern even under typical driving conditions.
All up and down the East Coast, drivers find that their vehicles are at the mercy of acid rain. At our Acura detailing center serving DC, we frequently see firsthand the results of acid rain when left unchecked.
Even garage-kept vehicles get caught in the rain, and high acid content will begin to degrade your vehicle’s clear coat and, if left unchecked, your car’s paint. The best way to prevent this process and the need for paint repair is to regularly wash and wax your vehicle. The importance of protective wax cannot be understated when talking about acid rain.
At Pohanka Acura, we offer full range of interior and exterior detailing services to help you keep your vehicle looking its very best as time goes by. Regularly detailing your vehicle also helps to protect your car’s resale value down the line.
Better yet, we even provide a complimentary car wash with each service visit! To learn more about our maintenance and detailing services, or to schedule an appointment, be sure to contact us online or to call our team at (703) 968-6600 today!

From the steering wheel to the engine bay, every Lexus model is built to bring drivers an unparalleled sense of comfort in the driver’s seat. The automaker’s attention to detail and penchant for the finer things inspires a lineup of cars, crossovers, and SUVs that are truly sophisticated. After all, isn’t that what a true luxury vehicle is all about?
At our DC area Lexus dealership, we are thrilled to represent an automaker with such an unflinching stance on providing a prime driving experience. Even more than intuitive features and inviting materials, though, Lexus delivers on luxury by providing peace of mind for their drivers.
You don’t need to take our word for that, either; the industry experts at J.D. Power have done the math.
Every year, J.D. Power conducts its Vehicle Dependability Study. This evaluation considers responses from drivers who have owned their vehicles for three years, exploring how many automotive problems they’ve experienced during the preceding 12 months.
The 2016 Vehicle Dependability Study, which was recently released, found the industry average to be 152 problems per 100 vehicles—a slight increase from the 2015 study, which put the average at 147 problems per 100 vehicles.
Topping the list of most dependable automakers of 2016, Lexus checked in far below the industry average at just 95 problems per 100 vehicles. It doesn’t take a mathematician to see that checking out a 2016 Lexus model at our DC area showroom is a smart choice.
This isn’t a new accolade for the automaker, either. 2016 marks the fifth consecutive year that Lexus has received top honors in the study, helping to cement the brand’s reputation as an automaker that drivers can count on.
To experience the exceptional reliability of this attractive nameplate firsthand, be sure to call Pohanka Lexus directly at (703) 968-9100 to schedule a test drive!

At our Chevrolet dealer serving DC, we know a thing or two when it comes to the importance of history. After all, a strong foundation is crucial for any business to succeed.
With over 90 years in business, the Pohanka family of dealerships has a longstanding reputation for providing incredible customer service and selling quality vehicles. We’re proud to have served many local families across multiple generations!
As such, we’re also very proud to work with an automaker that shares in our longstanding commitment to quality. Eight years before the first Pohanka dealership opened its doors, the first Chevy car took to the road.
In 1911, racecar driver Louis Chevrolet and GM founder Billy Durant joined forces to found the Chevrolet brand in Detroit. Right off the line, the brand began equipping its affordable models with innovative features that were typically reserved for contemporary luxury brands.
The presence of features like electric starters, safety glass, anti-lock brakes, and stability control systems in the automaker’s earlier models set the stage for the innovation drivers continue to find today at out DC area Chevy dealer.
In 1955, the brand broke new ground with the introduction of a small-block V8 that quickly became an industry legend. Powering millions of cars and trucks over the next half-century, this engine paved the way for Chevrolet’s exceptionally powerful modern V8.
On the other side of the spectrum, Chevy has entered its second century with innovative ideas that are set to redefine the modern driving experience. The Chevy Volt is a perfect example. The world’s first mass-produced electric vehicle with gas-powered extended range, the Volt is a realistic and inviting take on what an electric vehicle can become.
Whether you’re drawn to the brand’s legendary performance engines or its advanced eco-friendly technology, there’s no denying that Chevy is a brand that continues to help build America.
