By a show of hands, how many of you have changed your cabin air filter in the last 15,000 miles? How many of you even know that your Buick or GMC even had a cabin air filter? I’ll be honest, I have the guys here at Freeman Grapevine change my filters and take car of my vehicle including my cabin air filter. However, it’s not very had to do, in fact you can easily do it yourself.
Again, many car owners probably don’t even know that a cabin air filter even exists, let alone that it needs to be changed. Just like at home, the air filter is an essential part of your ventilation system that removes pollutants from the air before you breathe them in. Years ago, they were designed to prevent solid particles like soot and dust from circulating in your car. Today with the advancement of technology, air filters also can absorb gases and odors. You may have heard cabin air filters referred to as dust filters, interior ventilation filters or even pollen filters.
Unfortunately air pollution is a fact of life. If you drive often, and perhaps mostly on major highways during rush hour, without the air filter, you will breathe air that contains exhaust fumes, dust and soot, which obviously isn’t good for your health. The air filter prevents those pollutants from entering your Buick or GMC, and allows you to breathe cleaner air.
