Have Your Battery Checked at Pohanka Nissan in Fredericksburg, VA

Don’t wait until winter to have your battery checked! If there’s an issue, it’s more likely that with low temperatures your car will have a harder time starting the engine. That’s why you need a reliable auto service center to make sure everything is in tip-top shape way before you find yourself stranded in the middle of nowhere. Have your battery checked at Pohanka Nissan in Fredericksburg, VA – your local and trustworthy auto dealer and service center.

So, you get into your car, turn the key, and nothing happens. This is probably one of the worst case scenarios any driver dreads, especially if you have to get to work on time in the morning. To prevent this from happening to you, giving your battery the proper checkup and maintenance is key. On average, you should have your battery looked at twice a year and here at Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg we have the necessary qualified technicians to provide the proper maintenance your car deserves.

Now, here’s what’s ironic. People usually think chilly weather is what kills batteries, when in fact, it’s quite the opposite. Here’s the reason. As we know, electricity from batteries is originated from a chemical reaction from its components that liberates electrons. For example most cars use a lead-acid battery. As the battery discharges, corrosion forms a coat of lead sulfate, a process that is then reversed as the battery is recharged by the engine. This corrosion process, known as sulfation, is accelerated by heat, as well as by leaving a car unused for long periods of time. Over time, the layers of lead sulfate harden and prevent electricity from flowing. Have your battery checked at Pohanka Nissan in Fredericksburg, VA, to keep a close eye on how your battery is doing, so that when sub-zero temperatures hit, you don’t suffer from any issues. If you have any questions, just fill out our Ask a Tech form here on our website.

Then, considering the above, why do we have the notion that batteries are less effective in the cold? That’s because the engine requires more power to start when the temperatures are colder and those temperatures also make it harder for your battery to provide power. In other words, your car battery did not die because of the cold, it rather enhances or makes evident the battery’s deterioration suffered from heat exposure, being discharged for long periods, or simply because it has reached the end of its lifespan.

Have your battery checked at Pohanka Nissan in Fredericksburg, VA, in a timely manner. Our service center at Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg is open six days a week, from morning to evening hours, so there’s always a convenient time to stop by.

I had experienced poor service from Lectner Nissan, Priority Nissan amd Sheehey. Shaindel Atana at Pohanka Fredericksburg was OUTSTANDING. I was given a far price for my trade and they slayed the competition. I will be sending customers to Shaindel.

I walked in with a 08 Saturn vue and left in a nissian rouge. John Gayle in Ruby Blackwell did a wonderful job of explaining the process and helping me get into the car that I want it I would definitely come back and buy another car from them.

Five star is not enough for the experience we have received at this local Nissan dealership. If I could give 10 stars I would. We were met at the door by Margaret Spence who not only took us in after closing but her and her manager gave us an unbelievable rate staying well after closing time to take care of us. This Nissan dealership is the pinnacle of customer service.

My 2017 Fromtier makes the 7th or 8th vehicle purchased at Pohanka Nissan. Love the sales staff and the service staff. They take great care of you even after you've driven off the lot. I trust their service staff, their honesty and loyalty to me as a customer never stopped.

Pohanka Nissan is not a scam dealership. Their finance team is ethical, professional, and honest. Their sales consultants are no pressure and can easily help you find the car you need. My wife and I just bought a 2017 Nissan Sentra, and by being flexible, the finance team was able to get us a great car with good incentives that allowed them to pay off our existing loans. We worked with Julius, and he was a great, honest, ethical, and easygoing sales guy. Would recommend to anyone.
