The Inside Scoop on New Car Cabin Filters: Why Patience Pays Off

The Inside Scoop on New Car Cabin Filters: Why Patience Pays Off

At Undercar Experts, we share the excitement of getting a new car and exploring its features. As car enthusiasts ourselves, we understand the desire to personalize and maintain your vehicle. One question we often receive is about keeping extra cabin filters on hand. In this blog post, we'll explain why it may not be possible to find aftermarket cabin filters for brand new cars right away and why patience is key.

The Process of Developing Aftermarket Filters: When you purchase a new car, it comes with a factory-installed cabin filter from the original manufacturer. Aftermarket filters are produced by companies independent of the car manufacturer. For new car models, these aftermarket manufacturers require time to study and understand the updated filter and its compatibility with the vehicle. Research, development, and rigorous testing are necessary to ensure that the aftermarket filters meet or exceed the quality of the original parts.

Timing and Availability: The entire process of designing, producing, and testing aftermarket cabin filters can take a minimum of six months, and in some cases, up to a year. If you've purchased a 2023 model car, it's likely that the aftermarket cabin filter will be available for purchase in the fall or winter of that year. Most cabin filters do not need to be changed until around the 15,000-mile mark or one year of usage, giving ample time for aftermarket options to become available.

Recommended Brand: AirQualitee. When the time comes to purchase a new cabin air filter, we recommend the AirQualitee brand. We have found that these filters fit well and offer reliable performance right from the first installation. With AirQualitee, you can ensure clean and fresh air inside your vehicle.

Caring for Your New Car: While waiting for the availability of aftermarket cabin filters, it's essential to take care of your new car in other ways. Regular maintenance, such as oil changes, tire rotations, and checking other filters are crucial to keep your vehicle running smoothly.

Getting a new car is an exciting adventure, and part of the joy comes from personalizing and caring for your vehicle. When it comes to aftermarket cabin filters, patience is necessary as these filters require time for research, development, and testing. As an aftermarket parts provider, we ensure that the filters we offer are of high quality and comparable, if not superior, to the original parts.
