When it comes to keeping up with your Acura ILX's general vehicle maintenance, replacing your cabin's air filter isn't usually a priority. But in fact, your cabin air filter plays a vital role in filtering our pollutants from entering your Acura's cabin. But if you're looking to improve your Acura's quality of life, and to improve your fuel economy, be sure to visit with our expert service team at DCH Montclair Acura today!
Your cabin air filter's primary job is to keep the air inside your used Acura sedan cabin clean. Its function is to filter the air that comes through your HVAC system and prevents dust, pollen, smog, and mold spores from entering your enclosed cabin. However, just like your oil filter, over time, your cabin air filter will become dirty and will need to be replaced. Not replacing your cabin air filter can result in your A/C unit working harder and using more fuel to operate.
We at DCH Montclair Acura recommend that you change your cabin air filter once a year or every 25,000 miles. This can change if you drive in heavy traffic or an area with poor air quality. A few signs that you will need to change your cabin air filter are a reduced airflow through your A/C or if you smell a persistent bad odor coming through your vents.
When it comes time for a new cabin air filter, you can trust the team at DCH Montclair Acura.
