Did you know the air in your vehicle is only as clean as the cabin air filter? And, if the filter’s dirty, you could be breathing dirty air while driving. It’s important to make sure your cabin air filter is replaced on a regular basis. We at Acura of Fayetteville recommend you bring your Acura to our Service department so we can check your cabin air filter and replace it if necessary, to ensure you are always breathing the cleanest air possible.

Outside air is brought into the cabin through the heating, air conditioning, and ventilation systems. The cabin air filter removes outside fumes, pollen, pollutants and irritants, dust and other airborne impurities before they enter your vehicle’s cabin. The cabin air filter needs to be changed on a regular basis so it doesn’t get clogged and unable to do its job properly, putting you and your passengers at risk.

Our service technicians recommend changing your cabin air filter every year or two, depending on whether you’re doing a lot of city and highway driving or whether you’re mostly driving in a more rural area.

Here are the signs that your cabin air filter isn’t working properly.

– If there’s a smell or a bad odor in your vehicle when you turn on the air.

– Has your fan started making a loud noise?

If you notice either of these symptoms, we recommend making an appointment with our Service department as soon as possible.

Since the air filter is often in a hard-to-reach location, it’s not an easy do-it-yourself maintenance task and we’d be happy to replace your vehicle’s cabin air filter for you. That’s why our factory-trained service technicians at Acura of Fayetteville are here to assist you. Just schedule an appointment with our Service department at your convenience.
