Fast service without needing an appointment. The service advisors are friendly and knowledgeable. The cashiers are always friendly as well. I appreciate the free car wash included with service. The sales inventory is plentiful, so a stroll through the lot while waiting for service is a great pre-shopping advantage.

This dealership is just amazing and the process of purchasing my 2017 Chevrolet Traverse was very easy and smooth. I was trading in my 2007 Saturn outlook with negative equity and still got a good deal and fair monthly car payment. I have a family of 7 and the SUV they sold me fits us just right. They helped me out a lot after I told them I had been looking to buy a used car and had no luck or bad luck at other dealerships. I would definitely recommend going to this dealership if you have a family or are just simply looking for a new or used car they will get you straight! It was a wonderful experience!

Amad was very friendly and made the purchase of my new (used) vehicle easy and smooth. We contacted him the day before to see if the vehicle was still available and he returned the call very quickly (winning our business from the start) and made sure all the paperwork was ready to be signed when we arrived after driving 3 hours the next morning. Thank you!!

I had to come back due to parts not being available. Once the parts arrived, I was notified. I showed up at the service department without an appointment and was promptly taken care of quickly. Overall it was a great experience.

I’ve had the distinct pleasure of dealing with Jackie Berry who was informative and helped me every step of the way through the buying process all the way to the Business Manager Hunter Bowles. The timeliness and follow through was impressive and they both partnered with me to get me the car I needed. I didn’t feel like it was me vs them. As for Jackie Berry - Clone him please. :-). Good sales help is hard to come by. In a world where a lot of sales people come across as disingenuous, Jackie is a standout. Looking forward to coming back for my next car at Pohanka Chevrolet!

I had a great experience with Pohanka this weekend. I had an appointment with Andrew and he was very polite and helpful. I told him this would be my first new vehicle and he went above and beyond and helped me get into the vehicle I wanted and at a great price. I will definitely recommend going Pohanka Chevrolet for anytime in search of a new vehicle.

I was considering purchasing a newer vehicle recently and made an appointment with sales associate Greg McDaniel. He was professional, knew answers to all of my questions, and was respectful of a personal health issue which had to factor into my car-buying decision. He was tops and I highly recommend him. Also, as I was departing, Mike, the sales manager, introduced himself and was very encouraging that I should find a vehicle that suited MY needs. How refreshing...

Perfect car buying experience. Used the Costco auto buying service. We were out of state buyers because our local dealers were unable to find our desired truck, nor negotiate a desired price. Our salesman, Hunter Bowles, found the exact vehicle with all the options we wanted offered at an excellent price. Thank you!

I went in to look at a used car and everybody there was very helpful. I had many questions and the salesman was very good at explaining everything, and when he didn't know the answer to one he was honest about it, and found someone who could answer it. I ended up purchasing the car for a reasonable price, and I'm very happy with it

I love coming to Pohanka because I always receive excellent customer service (Elliot was awesome), a detailed and fair estimate and overall price, and kept up to date on the status of things. The loaner car for me was also a life saver and worth coming back to Pohanka repeatedly.

My experience with Andrew Blunt at Pohanka was quite good. Though I was not specifically in the market, the team presented a deal that included employee pricing and a great price on my trade in. I highly recommend them.

I cannot say enough good things about this service center. Sam was super, called back when a loaner came available. Ryan handled my servic and went above and beyond. I was so impressed with the team I called their manager to compliment them. I've never had a positive experience with dealer service, I even drove all the way from Alexandria because the Chevy dealer near me was not worth the convenience. Customer for life.

When it’s time to hand over the keys to your current vehicle and upgrade to a new or new-to-you model, let Pohanka Automotive Group be of help! We make the hassle of selling a car yourself much easier by providing some useful tips that will make it a breeze to add it to a dealership’s sales lot. Read more to find out how to prepare you vehicle and make the process seamless. Feel free to contact us if any questions arise—we’re more than ready to assist!

Spruce Up Your Vehicle

So, you’re thinking of selling your car to a dealership and want the most money for it? Well, getting it in its best shape will definitely help you achieve your goal. We’re not saying to completely go out of your way and spend an endless amount of money to prepare it for sale, but there’s some little steps to take when it comes to both the interior and exterior that will boost your chance of faster sell and receiving a bigger check. For starters, you’ll want to make sure both the headlights and taillights are functioning properly. Then, check for any obvious paint scratches, dings, and dents that might need fixing. For the interior, completely vacuum the seats, floors, mats, to keep the vehicle looking sharp and attractive to potential buyers. Lastly, if you haven’t already done so, take it for a car wash and wax to make it look shiny to improve your resale value!

Begin the Selling Process

After your car is glistening and ready to go, you’ll have to decide whether you want to trade it in or simply sell it. If you’re thinking of trading in, use our Value Your Trade tool to find out how much it’s worth in a few steps. You’ll find this convenient tool underneath both the Search New and Search Used tab, which only requires basic contact and vehicle information to receive your value. To get more of an accurate amount, you can also include photos and videos of your vehicle. The great thing about the trade-in is that you can consider using the value for a down payment to lower your monthly cost! On the other hand, if you just want to sell your vehicle, use our Sell Your Vehicle form. We’ll just need the same information and you’re ready to roll! Using the same steps, you’ll get your worth in just seconds and then you can apply it towards the next purchase or that vacation you’ve been wanting to go on!

Visit Us to Complete the Sale!

When you’re ready to complete the transaction, stop in and see us! Our dealership is open seven days a week for your utmost convenience, so come on down and let’s get started. If you don’t plan to look around for another vehicle while here, you’ll receive a check and be on your way in no time. However, if you do, we’ll assist you with the car-buying and use your trade-in amount toward the new vehicle. Our Finance Department and sales team is here to walk you through all of the steps and ensure you leave here with the keys and a payment plan you’re completely confident in!

We love our dedicated customers here at Pohanka Automotive Group and providing them with information, such as how to sell your car to a dealership near Capitol Heights, MD, to make the process stress-free! Stop by to learn more and to decide your next steps when you have a free day!
