Keep the Air in Your Cabin and Engine Clean with Air Filters

New cabin and engine air filters have several benefits for you and your car. These filters can improve your vehicle's fuel efficiency and reduce allergens and pollution. Unfortunately, old filters are not effective. That is why the service technicians at Prestige Auto Credit recommend replacing these filters whenever you come for vehicle maintenance services.

Pollen and other air pollutants can accumulate in your cabin's air filter so you can breathe clean air as you drive. It is best to have our technicians change the cabin air filter about once a year or every 15,000 miles
