The K&N VF2010 Cabin Air Filter improves air quality in the 2006-2011 Hyundai Azera, 2006-2010 Hyundai Sonata, 2011-2012 Hyundai Santa Fe, 2006-2010 Kia Optima and 2007-2010 Kia Magentis

Not too long ago, owning a Hyundai or Kia wasn’t something that you'd brag about. But these two South Korean automakers have spent billions of dollars to reinvent their image and product lines. Top spec models like the 2006-2011 Hyundai Azera, 2006-2010 Hyundai Sonata, 2011-2012 Hyundai Santa Fe, 2006-2010 Kia Optima, and 2007-2010 Kia Magentis now offer shocking amounts of luxury, at bargain prices. One of these high-end features is a filtered HVAC system, which is designed to prevent strange odors and allergens (like pollen and mold) from entering the cabin. However, owners are supposed to replace the cabin air filter every 6-12 months. Otherwise that dirty filter won’t do much to prevent contaminants and allergens from being inhaled by passengers. Plus, the engine will burn more gas trying to force air through the clogged HVAC filter.

On a stock paper cabin air filter, dirt collects on the surface and between the folds/pleats. This will restrict airflow over time, reducing both filtration and HVAC system efficiency. A K&N VF2010 Cabin Air Filter on the other hand, uses an electrostatically charged filter media that traps dirt particles deep within a web of synthetic fibers. This allows air to continue to flow through the filter, even when it's dirty. The electrostatic charge then holds the contaminants in place, keeping them out of your car’s interior. Once the filter does get filled with dirt and dust, you can simply remove the filter (it's usually located behind the glove box) and clean it using the K&N Cabin Air Filter Refresher Kit. If the pollen gets particularly heavy in the spring, you can pull the filter out and clean it as often as you’d like to help alleviate allergy suffering.

Thanks to its unique design, the K&N VF2010 Cabin Air Filter is able to capture allergens and contaminants that are even smaller than the width of a human hair. K&N cabin air filters also offer excellent filtration efficiency, so the vast majority of dust and dirt particles will be removed from the air, along with allergy inducing contaminants like mold spores, pollen, mildew, germs, fungus and bacteria. This will greatly improve the air quality inside your vehicle and the increased airflow will keep your engine from using more fuel to push air through a clogged cabin air filter.
