Mission Viejo Drivers: Get Fresh Air Inside Your Car

Let’s talk about air quality in Mission Viejo. It’s a global issue, but affects us wherever we are. Many decades ago, Mission Viejo car owners began to become aware of how air pollution negatively affects health. But what about the air inside your vehicle?

Cabin air filters are now coming on most new pickups in Mission Viejo. 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 in Mission Viejo, this is very good news. Your car can be a haven during your Mission Viejo commute.

You can look in your owner’s manual to see if you have one. If you do, there’ll be a recommendation for replacing it when it gets dirty. If you live in an area of Mission Viejo where there’s a lot of dust, pollen or pollution, you may need to change it more often.

You can also ask your understanding Autobahn West technician in Mission Viejo. How hard is it to change an air filter on a car? It depends on your vehicle. Some are quite accessible; others take some doing to get to them. They’re usually in the engine compartment or under the dashboard.

Because cabin air filters are so new on the scene, some Mission Viejo people haven’t heard of them – even drivers who have cabin air filters in their pickup. Autobahn West service advisors have discovered that many Mission Viejo customers who complained about an unpleasant odor in their pickup simply had a dirty cabin air filter.
