Difference Between Cabin Air Filters and Engine Air Filters

Your vehicle is made up of various components, and each one of these components plays a vital role in the overall performance of your vehicle. Even the smallest parts, from your windshield wipers, ensures you reach your destination safely and smoothly. Two of these vital components are your cabin air filter and engine air filter, but what exactly is the difference between the two?  Your engine air filter is located under your vehicle's hood, usually near the engine's front. Your engine air filter is responsible for keeping small particles and dust out of your engine's intake.

What We Can Expect to See for the Next Decade in the Automotive Industry

Every decade or so, we can expect to see major changes in the automotive industry. For instance, in 1970, airbags became a staple in every vehicle, and in 1950, the first cars were equipped with cruise control. What can we expect to see in the upcoming decade? We don’t like to predict the future, but some things are already in the works…  Things are going to change for insurance companies, thanks to autonomous vehicles! Safety rates are going to increase, and insurance isn’t going to being eliminated due to autonomous vehicles’ “perfect” safety records, but the industry will undergo big changes and most likely, declines.  65% of US roads are in poor condition, which makes it challenging for cars with autopilot features to properly work. Hopefully, with the automotive innovations in autopilot features and autonomous vehicles, road and bridge infrastructure conditions will improve.  We can expect to be driving and owning different ve ... read more
