Trees and Traffic. . . so why does my air filter look like THAT?

So, you live in Houston, by golly, Texas?

Do you see those pine trees growing everywhere you look?

Between the trees and the traffic our air is full of “stuff,” the kind of “stuff” that clogs up everything from your nose to the air filters in your car.

Just a few years ago most drivers had never heard of a cabin air filter. Today, your car probably has one – whether you know it or not.

The principle is really simple. The cabin air filter cleans the air that flows through your cabin. It keeps the air you breathe clean, while the other air filter (the one you have heard about for years) keeps the air your engine breathes clean.

So stop sniffling and change the darn ol’ cabin air filter every 12,000 to 15,000 miles. Maybe a little more often in Houston!
