Your Cabin Air Filter – What it Does. When to Change it

1SOI21150192_320x200_01_0028_201410
Fall brings attention to the importance of Subaru car care and a vehicle's preventative maintenance. One often-neglected item that gets dirty and worn is the cabin air filter!

What is the Cabin Air Filter? The cabin air filter acts as a screen that protects the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems (HVAC) from outside elements that could harm it. At the same time, it filters out the dirt and pollutants, keeping them from entering the cabin and contaminating the air you breathe while in the car. It's even more important for Subaru owners who take their vehicle off-road.

Your vehicle’s cabin air filter should be replaced every 12,000 miles. Check your owners manual and breathe easier

Genuine Subaru cabin air filters provide a critical line of defense against airborne contaminants, trapping them before they enter your Subaru system or the lungs of anyone in your car.

Feel free to ask your Service Advisor to show you your vehicle’s worn filter. You may be shocked by what you see – insects, leaves, twigs, soot, dirt and grime can cover the entire surface! Yuck!
