There's a whole host of services to consider when it comes to vehicle maintenance. Oil changes, tire rotations, and the like get plenty of attention, but there are other services that can help you enjoy your car to the fullest as well. The video above illustrates the importance of one service in particular: installing cabin air filters.

Modern cars are equipped with cabin air filters to help keep the air coming into the vehicle fresh and clean. As outside air comes into the AC system, the cabin air filter takes out dust and other particles. That means you'll have clean air coming into your space.

Unfortunately, these filters aren't effective forever. Over time, they can get clogged with debris and lose their effectiveness. If you notice these symptoms, it's probably time to have a new cabin air filter installed:

  • Reduced Air Flow
  • Unpleasant Odors
  • Dust Build Up Around the Dashboard

According to Ford, it's good to replace your cabin air filter about every 15,000 miles. This can vary depending on your model and driving conditions, however. For example, drivers near DeForest and Prairie du Sac may need to change their cabin air filters at different intervals from drivers in other parts of the country. Ford says that drivers ought to check their owners' manuals for specific cabin air filter installation intervals.

If you think it's time to get a new cabin air filter in your car, there's a service center near Waunakee that can help. Just contact Bushnell Ford in Lodi, WI. Our qualified Ford technicians can install a new filter in no time. You can schedule your appointment either online or in person.
