Cabin Air Filter. Does It Even Do Anything?

We asked our Service Advisor, Cortney, what maintenance can our customers be doing that would make the biggest impact ? The cabin air filer, or “the forgotten filter” is the most economical purchase for your vehicle, that not only effects the long term health of your valuable vehicle, but the health of the driver and passengers too.

Effects of a Dirty Cabin Air Filter on Your Car and Passengers

  • Reduced HVAC System Efficiency: A dirty filter hinders airflow, leading to decreased air circulation and airflow from the vents, especially at higher fan speeds.
  • Poor Air Quality: Clogged filters allow contaminants to bypass the filter, diminishing air quality inside the car and potentially causing discomfort and health issues, especially for passengers with allergies or respiratory conditions.
  • Increased Strain on HVAC Components: A dirty filter forces the HVAC system to work harder, straining components like the blower motor and air conditioning compressor, which may lead to premature wear and costly repairs.
  • Fogged Windows: Reduced airflow can result in foggy windows, affecting visibility and safety, particularly in cold or humid conditions.
  • Unpleasant Odors: Accumulated dirt and bacteria on a dirty filter can produce unpleasant odors, making the driving experience less enjoyable for passengers.
    Regular maintenance and timely filter replacements are crucial to maintain optimal performance, comfort, and safety for you and your passengers.

Regular maintenance and timely filter replacements are crucial to maintain optimal performance, comfort, and safety for you and your passengers. Keeping your cabin air filter clean is not only beneficial for your car but also for the health and well-being of everyone on board. By ensuring that your filter is clean and functioning properly, you can enjoy improved air circulation, better air quality, and a more pleasant driving experience. Remember, a small filter can make a big difference in your car’s performance and the comfort of your passengers. So, stay proactive and keep your cabin air filter clean for a smoother and more enjoyable ride.

7 Simple Reasons to Service at Beattie Dodge Jeep

Planning Ahead

In the world of automotive care, dealership maintenance stands out as the ultimate choice. Despite the convenience of other options, dealership service offers unmatched expertise, genuine parts, and advanced technology. Let’s explore why it’s the best decision for ensuring your vehicle’s longevity and performance.

Your vehicle purchase is the second largest purchase in life next to a home. With a sizeable investment in a vehicle whose resale value depreciates quickly, proper upkeep and maintenance is critical. You have dozens of different options to choose from when doing maintenance on your new purchase. With so many options available, why is going to an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) dealership still your best choice? Here are 7 simple reasons to bring your new vehicle back to Beattie dodge Jeep for service.

1. Warranty


Only an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) dealership like Beattie Dodge Jeep will be able to honor your vehicle’s factory warranty. A non-OEM garage will not be aware of your vehicle’s factory warranty and you could end up paying for repairs that we can cover at no charge to you.

2. Genuine Mopar Parts

OEM Mopar parts are made specifically for your vehicle and are designed to make your vehicle perform at the peak of its efficiency. You have the peace of mind of knowing that the parts going on your vehicle are designed for your vehicle and come with a warranty. Remember, less expensive after-market parts can sometimes mean more expensive repairs down the road. Mopar Parts are better quality and can be a bit higher in price but they will last longer and fit better— not like aftermarket parts like those sold at quick lube shops.

3. Certified & Specialized Technicians

When your vehicle is being repaired at our dealerships, you’ll receive service from certified technicians. This means that they have been trained by the manufacturer and are able to fix problems with your vehicle more efficiently than someone who isn’t Chrysler Certified. Chrysler Certified Technicians are also more likely to be able to diagnose issues with your vehicle because they have been trained and have experience with our brand!

The end result means less time and money wasted on unnecessary work.

Mike Ayerst- Shop Forman

4. Advanced Diagnostic Equipment

Beattie Dodge Jeep stock advanced diagnostic equipment specifically programmed to your brand’s various makes and models. That means your vehicle’s issues can be diagnosed more accurately and quickly saving you time and money. Without this diagnostic equipment a non-OEM garage will most often make an “educated guess” as to the problem your vehicle might be experiencing. Don’t leave your vehicle’s health to “educated guesses”.

Get it fixed RIGHT the first time.

5. Specialized Resources

One of the key resources we have other than physical tools is access to resources like Techline. Techline combines the knowledge of thousands of certified Chrysler technicians across Canada and the U.S. to problem solve and list commonly known issues. Experience and knowledge makes a huge difference when servicing your vehicle.

Beattie Dodge Jeep has also invested in over $750,000 of specialty tools Specifically made for Specific vehicles. Without these tools a technician Cannot complete the job correctly.

We pride ourselves on the relationships we build with out valued clients. Our Dealerships will take the time to know you AND your vehicle’s unique needs by:
