There’s no feeling quite like turning the key, hitting the road, and taking off on the picturesque road trip you’ve been craving all winter. From the sight of the open highway to the smell of fresh air, a road trip can be the perfect getaway.
If you’re a devoted road tripper like many of the team members at our Nissan dealer in VA, then you probably already have a checklist when you’re getting ready for an adventure. Whether it’s your top-secret trail mix for a snack on the road or that package of wet wipes for unexpectedly sticky situations, you know just what to pack to keep everyone smiling.
One thing that some drivers forget to check off their list, though, is their car’s maintenance. If your car isn’t happy during your road trip, then you’ll end up taking pictures of the tow truck instead of the scenery. Make sure you get to where you’re going with a bit of preemptive maintenance!
While the experts at our Nissan service center in VA can check your car from top to bottom in a jiffy, there are many components that you can check yourself pretty easily.
Start with the fluids, as many of them will be put to the test on a long stretch of highway. Some fluids, like oil and transmission fluid, should be checked after the car has been running; others, like the radiator coolant, should only be checked when the car is cool. If you’re adding more fluids, be sure to consult your manual and use the proper type.
Next, check your car’s rubber parts. These include belts, hoses, and tires. For your belts and hoses, inspect them visually for cracks or other signs of wear. Do this for your tires, as well, and be sure to check the tread and air pressure while you’re in the neighborhood.
Of course, it’s best to stay in your comfort zone. If you’re unsure of whether a part needs to be replaced or how to check it, don’t hesitate to come see us. Our service department offers extended hours seven days a week; no need for an appointment, just bring it in!
To learn more about how you can get ready for your spring road trip, or if you prefer to schedule an appointment, be sure to contact Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg online or to call our team directly at (540) 898-5200 today.

When it comes to your daily commute, chances are your drive isn’t the most thrilling trip you’ve ever taken. Nissan knows that daily drivers have particular needs, though, and they aim to add excitement to the list.
In fact, the 2014 Nissan Altima is so well designed that your commute might become your favorite part of the work day. A popular choice at Pohanka, one of the leading Nissan dealers in VA, the 2014 Altima just might be the ultimate sedan.
The interior of the 2014 Altima is designed to make the sedan your own personal retreat, even when you’re fighting traffic. A wide open design features softened edges and flowing design components for a more elegant feel, which is highlighted with premium materials.
Even better is the 2014 Altima’s available eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat. Added lumbar support ensures you find just the right level of support to stay comfortable, even on longer drives. Available leather seats, as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, add a luxurious feel to the already inviting interior.
It’s easy to see that the 2014 Nissan Altima has what it takes to keep drivers comfortable, but its ability to spice up your daily commute is tucked away neatly under the hood. A test drive at Pohanka’s VA Nissan dealership, though, puts its lively performance in full display.
The 2014 Altima gets its spirited performance from its 2.5L four-cylinder, which turns out a thrilling 182 horsepower. Even with such impressive performance, the 2014 Altima still boasts class-leading efficiency estimates as high as 38 highway miles to the gallon.*
Those after even more excitement on the road can take advantage of Nissan’s 3.5L V6, which allows the 2014 Altima to leap up to 270 horsepower. Fuel efficiency is still respectable, though, with the V6 achieving estimates of 31 highway miles to the gallon.
With either engine options, drivers can bet that their daily errands will never be quite the same. For more information on the 2014 Nissan Altima, be sure to call Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg directly at (540) 898-5200 or to visit online at http://www.pohanka-nissan.com today.
