Whether you’re mourning the loss of summer or looking forward to a crisp breeze, the truth is that fall is almost here. Labor Day has come and gone, and before you know it the nights will start to bring cool, clear air with them.
If you’re like most of us, it might take a little while to adjust to this change in the weather. The same is true for your vehicle, as the team at our Maryland Honda dealer can attest. While the change in weather can make your car work harder, a bit of simple maintenance can keep you running right.
We recommend starting by having your battery checked. You can take a look at the terminals to ensure that they’re clean and snug. Our experts can also check your charging system to make sure everything’s in order.
If your battery is fresh, it should have no trouble withstanding colder weather. If it’s more than three years old, though, it’s important to have it replaced; a battery may not give any warning signs before dying, and no one wants to be left out in the cold!
We also suggest visiting our Honda service center in Maryland to have our experts take a look at your tires. Changes in temperature can cause rubber to expand and contract, accentuating existing problems. Cold air will also result in lower tire pressure, which is a problem in itself.
Our certified technicians will inspect your tires for signs of wear, check your tire pressure, and also check the tread depth. We can also look for problems like uneven wear, which can be symptoms of mounting or alignment problems that we can fix.
Whether you’re ready for autumn or not, your best bet is to make sure your car is prepared as you roll into the new season. To get things taken care of, our service center is open seven days a week; no need for an appointment, just bring it in! For more information, or if you prefer to schedule a visit, be sure to contact Pohanka Honda online or to call our experts at (301) 899-7800 today!

Being a Maryland Honda dealer, Pohanka Honda is located near Washington DC and, as a result, nestled in close proximity to many of our great nation’s most well known and widely recognized military bases. As we’re sure you can imagine, many members of our staff are acquainted with members of the United States armed forces.
Some of our staff members know soldiers personally, while others simply see or interact with them around town. In both scenarios, our location puts us in a position to see firsthand the astounding dedication and sacrifice that our soldiers ensure in order to protect our country.
Whether it’s time spent training, working, or holding down the fort while loved ones are away on duty, we are constantly reminded of the struggles our nation’s military and their families shoulder in the name of the American way. At Pohanka Honda, we have the utmost respect for our nation’s military personnel and are eager to show our appreciation.
While it only captures a fraction of our gratitude toward the United States military, we’re proud to offer active-duty and reserve members of our military a $500 savings toward a down payment or cap cost reduction on a new Honda through Honda Financial Services.* This offer is available for spouses of military members, as well.
Additionally, we offer preferred pricing and USAA buying services that can help soldiers get the new Honda models they love. Military personnel can even take advantage of preferred finance and leasing opportunities at our dealership.
Preferred military pricing is available on extended warranty plans and accessories, as well. We even offer special seasonal maintenance discount coupons for military members to enjoy alongside our extended service hours seven days a week.
If you or your spouse is on active-duty or the reserves for the United States military, we invite you to visit Pohanka Honda today to learn more about how you can save on a new vehicle. To learn more, call us directly at (301) 899-7800 or contact our Honda dealership in Maryland online today.

This offer applies to eligible active-duty and reserve personnel in the U.S. Military and their spouses.
