Oregon Drivers: Get Fresh Air Inside Your Car

Oregon Drivers: Get Fresh Air Inside Your CarLet’s talk about air quality in Oregon. It’s a global issue, but affects us wherever we are. Many decades ago, we began to become aware of how air pollution negatively affects health. But what about the air inside your vehicle?

Cabin air filters are now coming on most new sedans in Oregon. These filters clean the air in the passenger compartment. They can filter particles down to three microns, so that’s good enough to clean out dust, pollen and most pollutants. If you suffer from allergies in Oregon, this is very good news. Your car can be a haven during your Oregon commute.

Now, it’s only been in the last few years that cabin air filters have become common. You can look in your owner’s manual to see if you have one. If you do, there’ll be a recommendation for replacing it when it gets dirty. If you live in an area of Oregon where there’s a lot of dust, pollen or pollution, you may need to change it more often.

You can also ask your service advisor at Dan R’s Automotive in Oregon. How hard is it to change an air filter on a car? It depends on your vehicle. Some are quite accessible; others take some doing to get to them. They’re usually in the engine compartment or under the dashboard.
