Clean Air for All!
I know it doesn’t seem like it now but, Spring is just around the corner, and with Spring comes lots of allergens in the air. The good this is CABIN AIR FILTERS are now coming on most new vehicles since the 2000 model year. These filters clean the air in the passenger compartment. They can filter particles down to three microns, so that’s good enough to clean out dust, pollen and most pollutants. If you suffer from allergies this is very good news.
You can look in your vehicle owner’s manual to see if you have a cabin air filter. If you do, there’ll be a recommendation for replacing it when it gets dirty. If you live where there’s a lot of dust, pollen or pollution, you may need to change it more often. How hard it is to change a cabin air filter depends on your vehicle. Some are quite accessible; others take some doing to get to them. They’re usually in the vehicle engine compartment or under the dashboard. Because cabin air filters are so new on the scene, some motorists haven’t heard of them – even people who have cabin air filters.
An important note for hybrid owners: there is a special air filter that cleans the air that cools the hybrid battery pack. This filter should be inspected every time the cabin air filter is inspected and replaced if it is dirty so that the battery pack doesn’t overheat

B. New Car

It’s C. Drivers are more alert and have less fatigue with pine scent in the car, according to AroMetrics.
