Have Your Battery Checked at Pohanka near Bethesda, MD

All vehicles rely on their battery to ensure a top-notch performance. As soon as today, you can have your battery checked at Pohanka near Bethesda, MD. This simple yet effective service is executed by our talented technicians to ensure your battery is working correctly and efficiently. Contact us at Pohanka Auto Group today to learn more!

Your battery is a vital component of your engine and the vehicle itself, as it is the main source of electricity for starting your engine and providing illumination inside and out. When you bring in your vehicle, our mechanics will get straight to work! Their expertise and experience with auto maintenance allows them to perform a quick and efficient service every time. Our technicians will inspect the fluid level of your battery to ensure it’s appropriate, as well as look for any leaks or swelling of the battery case. And, for added measure, they'll even clean off any corrosion that they come across to prevent any issues from arising down the road.

Another area that they will check is the actual voltage of the battery. Having a safe and optimal voltage is imperative for all vehicles, especially for those that experience winter climates such as ours. A fully-charged battery usually measure at 12.6 volts or above, and, when it’s running, it should reach 13.7 to 14.7 volts. When the weather drops to just five degrees Fahrenheit, your battery’s charge is rated at only half of its amp-hour capacity, which can often cause your engine to simply not start. To ensure your battery is properly charged, you can have your battery checked at Pohanka near Bethesda, MD.

Dealership Information


So, when do you know if you need to get your battery checked? As a general rule of thumb, it’s always suggested to have it inspected at least twice a year. Once before the winter months set in, and again before summer rolls around. However, if you experience uncommon situations, such as dim lights or a cranking noise when you start the engine, then it’s best to bring your vehicle in sooner rather than later. Most batteries last anywhere from three to five years, so if your battery falls within that timeframe, feel free to come on in!

We at Pohanka Auto Group are always more than happy to assist you with any questions or concerns that you may have. For safe and optimal vehicle performance, have your battery checked at Pohanka near Bethesda, MD, today!

Outstanding Experience!

I was looking on several websites for a Mini Cooper. I saw quite a few that I liked. I e-mailed Pohanka about a little green Mini that I liked. Papa called me back on a Saturday morning. He sounded so nice and pleasant, not pushy at all. I told him I would drive up from Baltimore to take a test drive. I was so happy to hear that they were open on Sunday because I' am a teacher and cannot come during the week. If it wasn't for Papa I would not be driving my dream car right now. The whole team at Pohanka works together and does a fantastic job. I love my Mini and I love Pohanka!

Just leased my second Honda with Pohanka and the process was very easy and hassle-free. I worked with Christy Lee who was very friendly, knowledgeable, and was able to answer all the questions I had. I've never had any issues in dealing with both sales and the service department.

I have called on the Pohanka organization multiple times and have been extremely impressed with their red-carpet approach to my complete satisfaction - and the satisfaction of friends who I have referred and have purchased from Pohanka. I can see why they've been around for almost 100 years.

I had the best car buying experience of my life at Pohanka VW. Everyone there was very professional and I never felt rushed or hassled. I got the car I wanted at the price I was comfortable with paying. All in all a great time.

Nice Sales People

I recently bought a 2014 RDX from Amir Seyedan. He was AWESOME to work with. I really hate the process of buying a car and working with car salespeople (sorry). I was ready for the high pressure. Amir was kind, very responsive and communicative throughout the buying process while still doing his job of selling :-) Even after the sale, he has followed up with me several times to make sure everything is great with the car and has gladly answered my simple questions about some of the bells and whistles. The next time I am ready to purchase a car, I will definitely be talking to Amir.

I am not one for car buying- the experience can usually be unpleasant, however; Pohanka Acura of Chantilly, VA complelty changed my outlook in purchasing my newest vehicle. I reached out to Pohanka for advice and was presented with a solution above and beyond my expectations. The staff was very professional, courteous, and respectful of my time. There were no haggling, no bait-and-switch techniques I was able to enjoy myself in a comfortable enviornment and I found the process painless as Ray was a delight to work with. Ray is one of those good ones. I still can’t believe how easy the entire process was. I left there in my new 2014 Acura extremely happy and satisfied.

I have purchased five vehicles now from Pohanka Chevrolet and while each experience was positive, this time the sales staff was exceptional. They made the purchase extremely easy, accommodated my hectic schedule and went above and beyond when working the trade-in vehicle, even removing the after market stereo for me. I am not sure they could have done anything to improve the experience. The salesperson, David Wheeler, stayed in contact even while I was out of town. I gave him the specifications of what I wanted and he delivered. I realize this cannot happen without strong leadership and the entire staff is to be commended. Finally, Terry Long was very professional in explaining the various options. He was honest, respectful, and trustworthy. It is very important to me that a salesman makes an honest personal connection with a prospective buyer. I looked at vehicles at a number of dealerships and the reception always seems to be a façade and the sales force pretentious. I am glad I came back to Pohanka. It has been six years since my last purchase so none them would have recognize me. However, I was treated like they have known me for years. That is customer service! I give Pohanka Chevrolet my highest recommendation and would recommend them without any reservation.

Your sales consultant, Anuj, was very informative and interested in making a deal without being too overbearing. Your sales manager, Junehee, was very willing to negotiate with me on my trade in and gave me a great deal. I had a very good experience at Pohanka Chevrolet.

The best price and customer service in the STATE. My wife and I just purchased a 2012 Honda Odyssey EX-L with RES. AJ and Ed worked very hard to find us the right price. After a few days of VERY dedicated looking on my part from Maryland to Va Beach, the guys at Pohanka Fredericksburg were the lowest price and they were friendly while doing it. There was a near miss when their internet sales guy nearly scored Landmark Honda the sale(failure to negotiate price and feet dragging), but AJ saved the sale and was able to convince me to keep Pohanka in mind until Mr. Altman could work out an arrangement that worked for all of us. Without fowling up the sales guy’s mojo I can say we got out the door for well under 33k (tax tags fright). The trade in value they gave us for our old car was just barley under the stated KBB for a trade in. All of this combined with the stellar customer service from AJ and ED had us pleased with Honda and planning on returning in eight months when it’s time to replace our other vehicle.

Great Staff!

I purchased a 2013 Hyundai Sonata. I arrived at the lot in Capitol Height, MD around Noon. I was not planning on purchasing a vehicle that day I was just window shopping. I wanted to compare the Santa Fe with the Ford Edge. I was approached by Raymond Walford. Raymond was the sales consultant who come up to me while I was looking, Raymond was very patience as I walked the Pohanka car lot. His patience and knowledge was exceptional as he explained the features of the Santa Fe. When he pulled the car around for my test drive he had the doors open and the hatch up as he proceeded to demonstrate the features of the vehicle. After test driving the Santa Fe I asked to test drive the Hyundai Sonata. I was instantly in love with this car. Its design is sleek and sexy and the price was just right. Raymond not only took the time, even after we purchased the car and had questions later, Nick treated us like family. He took the time to explain the features of the car and set up our Blue Link package. Raymond was so pleasant and has made my car buying experience effortless. The Pohanka Dealership has truly become like family to me. I am glad to be a part of the Pohanka Hyundai Family. Nice Job Raymond. Roberta
