How Often to Change a Cabin Air Filter

Your owner’s manual is the best authority on how often to change the cabin air filter in your specific car. So, be sure to check it. But, once every 15,000 miles or once a year, whichever comes first, is typically a good rule of thumb for most cars. And you may have to do it more often during the Monroe pollen season. And you should replace it if you notice odd smells coming from your vents, regardless of when it was changed last.
