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.

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.

Protecting yourself from Modern Car Theft

For most, our vehicles are the second biggest purchase we make in life next to our homes. We do a lot to protect our homes from theft. But very little for our vehicles. Vehicle theft in Canada is growing in numbers due to many factors, one being the ease of which our convenient keyless entry systems can be hacked.  A feature that has become standard practice in newer vehicles.

Faraday pouches are a simple and cost-effective way we can help reduce the chances of your car being stolen; Let us explain: 

Modern convenience features in vehicles have been rapidly developing, and one of the more commonplace features is keyless entry.

Keyless entry allows you to keep your car key in your pocket or bag, with the car sensing the key’s proximity to the car and unlocking it as you approach. More moderately, keyless entry systems will also let you start the car with a button without having to use the key once it detects you are inside the vehicle.

This is wildly convenient and has become commonplace. Unfortunately on the flip-side it can also make a car more vulnerable to being stolen. This is where something like a Faraday bag or pouch can help address.

What is a Faraday Pouch?

A Faraday bag, pouch or box is essentially a small Faraday cage, named after its inventor, Michael Faraday. 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faraday_cage

Faraday technology blocks electromagnetic fields, such as those emitted by keyless entry systems.

How does Keyless theft occur?

Keyless entry systems can be vulnerable to keyless theft, also known as “relay theft”.

Car keys with a keyless function constantly transmit a signal that the car recognizes as you approach it; when the car recognizes the key is close (within a couple of feet), it unlocks itself.

The problem is, that thieves know this. An electronic tool that can pick up the signal from a key fob if it is placed near a door, window or exterior wall in your home.

This then amplifies and repeats the key’s signal, which is picked up by a second thief standing close to the car with a second electronic device. This tricks the vehicle into thinking the key is close, at which point the vehicle can be unlocked, started, and driven away.

How does a Faraday bag work?

The signals sent by keyless entry systems work by sending out electrons. A Faraday pouch is effectively a metal mesh inside a fabric or leather bag, and the layers of metal absorb the electrons being sent out by the key, stopping or greatly reducing their emission, and thus giving no signal to clone.

Is a Faraday Pouch expensive?

No. Faraday pouches are relatively simple and can be purchased for $20 or less. AT Beattie Dodge Jeep, they are included with the sale of any vehicle with a keyless entry system.

In Conclusion

Put your keys away in your Faraday pouch when you’re home at night or traveling and you can be sure your precious vehicle will be parked where you left it!
