Do you recall the last time that you had your cabin air filter replaced? If not, it’s possible that your vehicle is still equipped with its original cabin air filter. Unfortunately, these filters do need to be replaced quite frequently — every 12,000 to 15,000 miles to be exact — to ensure that the air that is circulating throughout your vehicle is being filtered of any harmful particles. Luckily for you, our certified service technicians here at Morrie’s Golden Valley Cadillac can swap out your old cabin air filter in the blink of an eye and at an extremely affordable rate!
Your cabin air filter — which is typically located behind the glove compartment or under the hood or dashboard on most modern vehicles — cleans the air that enters the interior of your vehicle through the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system. It removes any harmful dust, pollen, or other airborne particles that can easily find their way directly into your car.
The most common and recognizable sign that you need a new cabin air filter is a persistent bad odor inside your vehicle. If you or any of your passengers have been noticing any unusual smells while driving, it could be a tell-tale sign that your air filter is due for a replacement.
Another sign of a defective air filter is a reduction in airflow through your climate control system. If you happen to turn your air conditioning or heating system on and you feel that it’s not operating properly or making unusual noises, it’s more than likely that the filter is clogged and disturbing the airflow through the system.
Whether your vehicle is presenting these warnings or not, we highly recommend having your air filter inspected at least once a year here at our Golden Valley Cadillac service department. Prior to bringing your vehicle in for service, however, we encourage our customers to review our generous list of service specials that can help you save big on your next visit!
