As the leaves change all throughout Virginia, the landscape becomes the perfect background for a relaxing fall drive. The 2017 Hyundai Sonata is a favorite for Fredericksburg drivers, perfectly balancing the maneuverability they need in the city while providing the space and comfort that they love for an enjoyable ride.
Of course, you shouldn’t be too laid back, even during a nice autumn drive. Fall comes with its own set of risks and distractions, so it’s important to stay alert behind the wheel.
School is back in session, which means buses are back on the road and young children may be crossing the street more often. Deer tend to be more active in the fall, too, adding another hazard to the list of things to keep an eye out for.
What many drivers don’t realize is that fall foliage also poses a risk. Leaves on the roadway can remain wet and slick long after the road itself has dried, so taking your time and remaining aware of what’s on the road ahead is crucial. Of course, even the most attentive drivers can’t hope to stay in control if they’re not on top of their vehicle’s maintenance!
The transition between seasons is always a good time to give your car some extra love and care, as proper maintenance will give you an edge as the weather and temperature change. With everything from kids and deer to leaves on the road, unexpected stops are bound to happen now and then. Fortunately, dropping by for brake service at our Fredericksburg car repair center can help you to be ready!
As your brake pads wear down—which happens naturally over time—the time it takes you to safely stop your vehicle will increase. Making sure that your brake pads or shoes are in good condition can help to decrease the time it takes you to react to the unexpected, which is why good quality brakes are particularly important at this time of year.
To make service easy, we offer extended hours Monday through Saturday; no need for an appointment, just bring it in! For more information on safe driving, or if you prefer to schedule a service visit, be sure to contact Pohanka Hyundai of Fredericksburg online or to call our team at (800) 764-2652 today.

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!
