Lincoln Drivers: Get Fresh Air Inside Your Car

May 29, 2022

Let's talk about air quality in Lincoln. It's a global issue, but affects us wherever we are. Many decades ago, Lincoln drivers began to become aware of how air pollution negatively affects health. But what about the air inside your vehicle?

Now, it's only been in the last few years that cabin air filters have become common in Lincoln. 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 Nebraska where there's a lot of dust, pollen or pollution, you may need to change it more often.

You can also ask your friendly and knowledgeable service advisor at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Lincoln in Lincoln. 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.

Because cabin air filters are so new on the scene, some people haven't heard of them – even those who have cabin air filters in their vehicle. Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Lincoln service advisors have discovered that many Lincoln customers who complained about an unpleasant odor in their vehicle simply had a dirty cabin air filter.
