Here at our Honda dealer in Fredericksburg, we count ourselves fortunate to be part of such a loyal and supportive community. The city was founded in 1728, and the Pohanka family of dealerships has been serving the area for nearly 100 years.
As such, it’s only logical that we’d encourage our customers to support local businesses. We can’t recommend the Fredericksburg Farmer’s Market highly enough!
With three locations around town—the Mary Washington Healthcare Market, the Mayfield Market, and the original Hurkamp Park Market—the Fredericksburg Farmer’s Market makes it easy for locals and visitors alike to support local vendors.
You might be surprised by all you’ll find at the outdoor markets, too, especially if you’re strictly expecting produce. Shoppers will find everything from meat and eggs to baked breads and even locally made wine! The Hurkamp Park Market is even walking distance from downtown, so you can make a day of it.
While a farmer’s market might have you picturing horse-drawn carts or old school pickup trucks, the 2017 Honda Accord is actually a perfect choice for visiting the Fredericksburg Farmer’s Market! Just like the market itself, this model is full of surprises.
The Fredericksburg Farmer’s Market has three locations, and the 2017 Accord offers three versions: the 2017 Accord Sedan, Coupe, and Hybrid. The Sedan and Coupe both sport up to 23 MPG on city streets, while the Hybrid ups the ante to an impressive 49 MPG in the city.* Perfect for all of your local errands!
You’ll be set to load up on all of your favorite produce and other necessities, too, with up to 15.8 cubic-feet of cargo space. Paired with the 2017 Accord’s city-friendly size, this cavernous cargo area is just the ticket.
If the 2017 Accord has caught your attention, then you know the perfect local spot to shop: Pohanka Honda of Fredericksburg! To learn more, or to schedule a test drive, be sure to contact us online or to call our team at (540) 735-9100.

Night driving isn’t always a walk in the park, so it’s no wonder that many drivers aren’t fans of hitting the road after dark. You’ve still got places to be after the sun goes down, though, so it’s important to be confident when heading out at night. Our Fredericksburg Hyundai dealership has some simple tips to help you keep a clear view of the road!
This might seem obvious, but make sure that your lights are on! Most modern cars have automatic headlights, but the moderate lighting of dawn and dusk—which often lines up with the congestion of your daily commute—can be enough to keep them off. When in doubt, manually turn on your headlights.
It’s also a good idea to lower your interior lighting at night, including your dashboard lights, to avoid distraction and reduce the light that your eyes take in from outside. Again, many vehicles will make an adjustment automatically, but you may be better off setting levels that are better suited to your tastes.
Another good idea is to ensure that your windshield is clean, inside and out. We seldom think about this until it becomes a distraction, but clearing your windshield of dust and grime will reduce the glare of oncoming lights at night.
While reducing distractions and staying on top of things makes a big difference, having a little inside help on your side never hurts. The 2017 Hyundai Sonata brings Fredericksburg drivers a number of innovative lighting options for optimum visibility!
Advanced lighting means a greater field of vision, and the 2017 Sonata provides plenty of choices for modern motorists. LED Daytime Running Lights, HID headlights, and LED taillights are available, increasing visibility along with the 2017 Sonata’s visual appeal.
The available Dynamic Bending Light helps you make the most of your headlights. The HID lighting reacts to your steering, turning the headlights to shine along upcoming curves so that you have a greater range of visibility ahead of you.
You can be a more courteous driver, as well, thanks to Automatic High Beam Assist. You’ll be able to stay focused on the road ahead knowing that this available feature will automatically revert from high to low beams when an oncoming vehicle is approaching.
For added confidence after the sun goes down, simply contact Pohanka Hyundai of Fredericksburg by calling (800) 764-2652 to learn more about the innovative features built into the latest Hyundai models!

For Nissan, innovation is the name of the game. The automaker is constantly striving to move forward, working hard to bring drivers both a better ride and an improved ownership experience!
In addition to crafting the breathtaking powertrains that you’ll find in the vehicles at our Fredericksburg Nissan dealership serving Stafford, Nissan is also putting in the effort to make day-to-day life easier for drivers. The brand’s latest development comes in the form of the first self-cleaning car prototype!
Coated in an innovative paint that repels everyday grime like rain, dirt, and mud, this self-cleaning Nissan Note is currently undergoing extensive real-world testing by the engineers at Nissan Technical Centre Europe. Nissan is the first automaker to make use of this Ultra-Ever Dry® coating, essentially creating a vehicle that keeps itself clean.
In tests, the coating has proven to be highly effective against many substances that drivers encounter on the road, ranging from rain and standing water to frost and sleet. Ideally, Nissan hopes to offer the protective coating as an aftermarket option in the future.
While this innovative new coating is still being developed, it doesn’t mean you need to break out the hose and sponge when you want your car to look its best; our Nissan dealer is here to help Stafford area drivers keep their vehicles looking great!
To help you cover the basics, we provide a free trip through our car wash with every visit to our service center. We also offer an extensive range of other cleaning services, including full interior and exterior detailing packages to help your car maintain its fresh-from-the-factory look!
To learn more about Nissan’s latest innovations, or to schedule a visit with our professional detailing team, be sure to contact Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg online or to give us a call at (540) 898-5200 today!
