Winter Driving Tips in Chantilly, VA

Winter Driving Tips in Chantilly, VA

Cold Weather Driving Tips

With the winter months approaching, it is important to change your driving habits and make sure that your vehicle is prepared for anything that is thrown its way. That is why we at Honda of Chantilly are here to give you some much-needed winter driving tips, so you can conquer snowy pavement with the utmost confidence. When you are ready to get your tires switched out, visit our Service Department at 4175 Stonecroft Boulevard in Chantilly, VA.

Essentials

Before you pack up for your next road trip, it is important to bring a few extra things to make sure you are prepared. For instance, include some extra warm clothing, blankets, food, and water. These will certainly come in handy if you experience a dead battery and need to stay comfortable before help arrives. Next, always keep a stocked first aid kit on hand that includes any necessary medication, along with a flashlight and some flares to assist if you are stranded in the middle of the night. Also, check to make sure that your tires are properly inflated, and that you have at least a half tank of gas at all times. In case you get snowed in, bring along a shovel, ice scraper, and sand or cat litter, as these will all come in handy when you need to get some extra traction.

Driving Tips

Now that you are ready to handle the frigid temperatures, let’s go over a few ways to avoid collisions, so you can stay on your intended path at all times. For starters, don’t leave home unless it is absolutely necessary. It is better to avoid any risks if you can, and we highly suggest hunkering down if you have the opportunity. If you do decide to hop behind the wheel, always drive slowly, and increase your following distance to five or six seconds. This will allow you to apply your brakes in a timely manner and hopefully miss a front-end collision. It is also crucial that you don’t press the accelerator when you are going uphill. Instead, try to get some extra inertia going before you near your ascent, and don’t stop until you get to the top. This way, you can avoid wheelspin, which might cause you to roll backwards.

Maintenance

Last on our list of tips for winter driving is to make sure that your vehicle is current with all of its necessary upkeep. You can drop by our Service Department today, and we will get your battery replaced, oil changed, tires rotated, and brakes checked, so you are ready to roll when our first blizzard hits. If you would rather switch out your tires for a winter set, then click on the Tire Center link at the top of your screen and let us know what vehicle you have or size you are looking for. Then, we will promptly send you to a screen where you can search through our options that are fit for low-traction situations. If you have any questions, make sure to use our Ask a Tech form.

We hope that our winter driving tips in Chantilly, VA, have provided you all the information you need to trek through our East Coast weather. We at Honda of Chantilly are happy to help!

Jeong Lim was a great help in my car buying experience. He was very patient and took the time to carefully explain my options and price points. When I think of an honest car buying experience I think of my experience with Jeong. Thanks to him I walked out with a car at a good price and am very happy with my new car. Anyone who needs the help should ask Jeong!

Krista Hall is great!

Through an auto buying service I was contacted by Krista. I hadn't emailed or returned her call because I was already working with a salesperson at another dealer. Krista was very respectful in her calls but also gently persistent. I was eventually able to call her back and explained my situation. I told her if my current conversation at the other dealer didn't work out, I would be talking to her the next day. It seemed to me that Krista was not simply trying to sell a car but establish a relationship. Although I didn't purchase a car from Krista this time, she will be my first call the next time I'm in the market.

Very helpful. A service manager called me up front and helped me determine what to fix immediately and could be addressed in the coming months. Knowing my vehicle was coming in for a longer 100k service, we were able to easily schedule a loaner vehicle as well. Military discount was also appreciated!

Kirsta Hall was my sales associate at Pohanka Honda. She was fantastic in assessing our needs to find us the right car that fit within our budget. I felt no pressure to buy which I appreciated. Even though I did not buy from them, I enjoyed the car shopping experience here.

I normally dislike shopping for cars; however, Rene Irizarry, made the entire process painless. His pleasant and charming personality as well as his patience in working out the details are plus for Honda of Chantilly. Thank you Rene for helping with my purchase. I had to bring my Honda HR-V in to have my tire pressure check as was assisted by Jules Coy, Service Consultant. He was very pleasant and helpful even though it was 6 AM. Very happy with Jules' assistance.

I had a great experience with Shannelle Rushing, she was very pleasant and knowledgeable. I don't like car shopping and very hesitate by going to dealerships, but she was calm and nice verses what I've experienced in the past. Ask for Shannelle when you go in the dealership.

It had been a long time since I had gone car shopping, so I dreaded/feared what I may have to go through. So, my son got in touch with Honda of Chantilly. Wonderful!! We communicated with Farah Islam with all questions, concerns or issues. The experience turned out to be one of my best!! We live in Chesapeake Va. but Farah & the entire staff made the trip worth while. Thanks to all for a very pleasant experience!! Shout out to Jay in the finance department!

Thanks Kirsta!

I went in for my second routine servicing for my Honda Civic I bought from here. I was about to go on a long road trip and before arriving at Honda, I was running behind schedule for my trip. I explained this to the service representative and she was incredibly empathetic. Before I knew it, they serviced my car, explained the inspection report and went way beyond my expectations. I left the dealership feeling confident and ready for my road trip following my visit at Honda. And to make it even better - I was back on my planned schedule. If you visit, you MUST ask for Katie Hensley and Jeremy Compton!

If you want to get EXCELLENT customer service, ask for Julio Montenegro. The last few visits I have made to Honda of Chantilly I have worked with Julio. He is respectful, TRUTHFUL and will do everything he can get the customer the best deal on their repairs. I used to be apprehensive about taking my car to the dealership, but working with Julio makes the trip worth it. Thank you Julio for putting the customer FIRST.

I purchased my first Honda the beginning of January. After a bad experience at another dealer, we decided to try Honda of Chantilly. We were immediately greeted by Xiomara Leiva. She was personable and very knowledgeable. She made certain she understood our needs and gave us great information. I am so happy with my CRV. I travel for work and this is the most comfortable vehicle I have driven. I love the safety features. Thank you Honda and Xiomara!
