Great question, and congrats on becoming a car owner for the first time! It might depend on a vehicle’s make and model, but generally speaking, there is usually one cabin air filter in a car, and one engine air filter.
The cabin air filter in your car helps filter out dust and potential allergens to keep the overall air quality at an optimal level.
With both filters, you can check your owner’s manual to see what the recommended air filter change intervals are for your vehicle make and model. If you’re frequently driving in dusty environments, you might need to end up changing your filters sooner than you’d otherwise have to.
