Cayenne here and with all the California Wild Fires we have lately I thought it was important to remind you of your car's cabin filter. It has an important job to help keep the air in your car smelling good and fresh from the air outside and with all the smoke we have had, believe me, it has been working overtime. So let's breathe into this important filter system.
Poor interior air quality is nothing to sneeze at, and Los Altos auto owners might be interested to know that more and more new cars are coming equipped with a cabin air filter. Check your vehicle owner's manual, but they typically need to be replaced at around 12,000 to 15,000 miles (19,000 to 24,000 kilometers).
The filter is usually under the vehicle hood or under the dashboard. Some are a little tricky to get to, so you'll want to have your friendly and knowledgeable Allied Auto Works service advisor take care of replacing them.
As we said, many Los Altos people don't realize they have a cabin air filter and come to Allied Auto Works saying "my vents are smelling bad." It usually turns out to be a dirty cabin air filter. A switch out and they're on their way, smelling sweet.
Los Altos residents who suffer from allergies can really benefit from a cabin air filter as it keeps irritants to a minimum. If you're one of them, you'll want to replace your filter regularly.
If you do a lot of driving in dusty or polluted South Bay conditions, you'll need to change your cabin air filter more often.
