Hit the Road this Fall With WIX® Filters Cabin Air Filters Enhanced with Microban® Antimicrobial Product Protection

Thursday, 22 September 2016

As summer turns to fall, beach trips become mountain drives and, with all that fresh air, it’s a great time to switch to WIX® Filters’ cabin air filters with Microban® antimicrobial product protection.

When it comes to your car’s filters, how you drive plays a huge role in your vehicle’s maintenance. If you frequently find yourself on dusty country roads, driving through construction zones or in heavy stop-and-go traffic, severe conditions require you to change your filters more often. A recent New York Times article revealed the average American commuter spent 50 hours in traffic last year. The article goes on to discuss air quality within your vehicle, and one thing is certain, cabin air filters have become more critical than ever.

“It’s no question we spend a lot of time in our vehicles,” said Donald Chilton, vice president of product management for WIX. “We’re driving to work, school, soccer practices and swim lessons. For all of these routes, we want to ensure you’re breathing in the freshest air possible, and our cabin air filters enhanced with Microban® are your best bet.”

The following are general recommendations, but you should always consult your owner’s manual for the best guidance on your car’s change intervals. To ensure you’re breathing the freshest air inside your vehicle, check your cabin air filter. A general rule of thumb is to check this filter once a year and change it every two years or 20,000 miles or, as we like to call it, “new every two.” As summer draws to a close and humidity and allergens are at their worst, WIX's cabin air filters with Microban® antimicrobial product protection help keep negative elements from entering a vehicle's interior, and keep cabin air fresh for the life of the product.
