An often overlooked piece of maintenance is your cabin air filter. But, what does a cabin air filter do? Your cabin air filter essentially filters the air that goes through your vehicle’s ventilated system. When you’re using air conditioning, heat, or anything else with your vehicle’s climate control system, the air that’s blowing is coming through your cabin air filter.
