What is a cabin air filter and how often should I change it?
The cabin air filter cleans air that you and your passengers breathe by filtering out dirt and other contaminants. Replacing your cabin air filter regularly reduces contaminants such as pollen, dust, and odors that enter your vehicle through the vent system and can help reduce allergy symptoms year-round. You should change your cabin air filter at least every 12 months or 12,000 miles or based on your vehicle manufacturer’s specifications.
