Tend to Your Car's Cabin Air Filter Needs at Betten Volkswagen

Your car's cabin air filter can be easy to overlook, but knowing what it does and when to change it can do wonders with regards to improving the air quality in your car. Your Volkswagen vehicle's cabin air filter is responsible for keeping whatever contaminants are in the air outside from getting into your car.

When your cabin air filter is clean and working properly, it helps to keep out pollutants like smog, pollen, dust, and other things that you definitely don't need floating around in your Volkswagen. It filters the air so that you can breathe easy as you drive around Grand Rapids.

So, now that you know what your cabin air filter does, let's talk about when you need to replace it and what can happen if you don't.

When do I need to replace my Volkswagen cabin air filter?

Changing your cabin air filter at least once a year, or every 15,000 to 30,000 miles is generally what we recommend. Your owner's manual can give you further insight into what your specific type of vehicle needs. You're also always welcome to give our Volkswagen service center near Wyoming, MI a call with questions.

What happens if I don't change my cabin air filter?

Aside from inviting pollutants into your Volkswagen, neglecting your cabin air filter can cause your air conditioning to work harder. Bad odors and reduced airflow from your climate control system can be signs that your cabin air filter is clogged and not doing its job properly.
