When you're cruising down the highway enjoying your car's smooth acceleration, you can thank your air filters for helping to create your fun experience behind the wheel. And just like any other part of your car, our service team at Mazda of New Bern is here to help ensure your car's air filters stay fresh. 

What are Air Filters and Why are They Important? 

Every Mazda car is fitted with air filters to protect the engine and to keep the air clean inside the cabin. The engine air filters come in a variety of sizes and shapes depending on the car model, but they all help prevent contaminants from making their way into your powertrain.

If dirt, dust, pebbles, or anything else makes it into your engine, it could disrupt the smooth operation of your engine's various parts and potentially cause damage. Another important air filter is your cabin air filter. This is often located behind the glovebox. This filter acts as an extra buffer to keep the air in your cabin clean. 

Air Filter Service

As your car's air filters build up more debris and dirt, you'll eventually need them replaced. If your engine's air filter gets too dirty, it can start to compromise the airflow to the engine, diminishing your power output. Plus, you won't want pebbles or debris poking holes over time and letting dust into your engine. 

And of course, when it comes to your cabin, you'll want your cabin air filter to continue effectively keeping your interior air clean. For new Mazda cars, you'll want the air filter replaced about every 30,000 to 45,000 miles depending on the condition of your air filters.
