If the inside of your vehicle has lost that “new car smell,” there are a couple of things to check on before you hang another one of those air fresheners on the rear-view mirror.
If your car is a 1990’s model or newer, did you know that it probably has a cabin air filter?
Those things help keep dirt, dust – and smells – from penetrating the vehicle’s interior.
Not sure? Ask the staff at Advance Auto Parts for a little assistance. District Manager Michael Puckett said a clogged cabin air filter could be the culprit for that lingering smell.
Those filters function much like the air filters in your home, Puckett noted on Thursday’s installment of Pop The Hood.
The filters help to trap the dust and dirt and help keep your car’s dashboard and other flat surfaces clean.
If those surfaces need a good wipe down, Advance Auto has a full selection of products to help.
Once you’ve got the interior dusted and gleaming, it may be time to add a fancy scent.
There are plug-in types and sprays in addition to the iconic rectangular tags that hang from the rear-view mirror.
There’s one scent called “New Car Smell,” but Puckett said he’s partial to Cherry himself.
Whether it’s a cleaning product, cabin air filter or other item to help keep your vehicle’s interior shiny and squeaky clean, visit either of the Advance Auto Parts locations in Henderson – on Raleigh Road or just off Dabney Drive – for all your car care needs.
