Cabin air filter


#1

Both my cars have them. Both need to b changed. Should I get paper or carbon coated version? Sort of a cheap/higher priced choice. Both are under wiper cowl. Easy to change. And yes they are grungy. U try living outside in the rain/snow.


#2

I just go with the paper version.


#3

I just get the OEM one and forget it.


#4

They are easy enough to change often enough to use the cheaper filter.


#5

The carbon ones can remove foul odors and to a certain extent, fumes…


#6

Of course, that assumes that the foul oders and fumes are emanating from OUTSIDE of the car…


#7

Good point Dr, plus you wouldn’t be able to blame on the farms anymore.


#8

I don’t know. I drive through some spots where you can still blame it on the farms.

Considering that a lot of cars don’t even have cabin filters, I’d call it a non-decision. Without some weird reason I’d get the cheapest thing I could.


#9

The key to using the blame game for foul odors is traveling with three or more people. One or two doesn’t do it.

Don’t forget the dog!
Traveling with a dog gives you a convenient extra “person” to blame.

Ya, dogs will happily accept the blame for anything ; man’s best friend .
