K&N VF1003 cabin air filter for Hyundai Sonata, Santa Fe and Optima

Standard among 1999-2005 Sonatas, Santa Fes, and the 2005 Optima, is a rectangular cabin air filter that is easily replaced with the K&N VF1003.

When looking for an affordable family vehicle, car buyers on a budget were pleasantly surprised to find the Hyundai Sonata 4-door sedan and Santa Fe compact SUV, then a bit later, the upscale Kia Optima. They needed affordable, roomy transportation that provided creature comforts and load-carrying capabilities. They got great value with lots of standard and optional features for their money, handsome cabins with easy-to-use controls and comfortable seating, plus ample trunk and cargo space. Owners have reported that they typically keep and drive a car for more than five years, and these South Korean products did not disappoint, especially when maintained carefully and backed by the manufacturers' 10-year, 100,000 warranty.

K&N VF1003 cabin air filter for Hyundai Sonata, Santa Fe and Optima

Constructed of a special non-woven synthetic medium and supported on a flexible polyurethane frame, the VF1003 filter is sturdy enough for multiple washings.

These owners also were committed to maintaining their investments, which includes replacing the cabin air filter regularly. Also called an air conditioning filter or an HVAC (heating, ventilating, air conditioning) filter, these devices need free-flowing air to ensure optimal performance, in both protecting the A/C-heater systems and the lungs of cabin occupants. They trap dust and dirt particles, as well as help capture mold, mildew, fungus, spores, bacteria, pollen, and allergens.

Today, these filters don't need to be discarded with every service because they can be replaced just once with a K&N VF1003 washable, reusable cabin air filter.

99-6000 cabin filter cleaning care kit

K&N offers installation instructions and the 99-6000 cabin filter cleaning care kit to make the filter service process simple and efficient.

Standard among 1999-2005 Sonatas, Santa Fes, and the 2005 Optima, is a rectangular cabin air filter, mounted behind the passenger-side glove compartment. Replacing this filter is quick and straightforward, requiring about six simple steps and no special tools. The K&N VF1003 is designed and engineered to fit perfectly and last a lifetime. Users won't fill up the landfill with disposable filters and they will be true to their maintenance budgets because they only need buy it once.

Like the Sonata, Santa Fe, and Optima, the K&N washable cabin air filter is protected by a 10-year or 100,000 mile warranty, and is the first of its kind. Constructed of a special non-woven synthetic medium and supported on a flexible polyurethane frame, the VF1003 filter is sturdy enough for multiple washings. K&N offers installation instructions and the 99-6000 cabin filter cleaning care kit to make the process simple and efficient. After removing the VF1003, spray it with the filter cleaner, rise with clear water, let it air dry, then spray with the filter refresher to replenish its electrostatic capabilities and reinstall.

Consult the vehicle's owner's manual for specifics, but the K&N suggested service interval is every 12 months or 12,000 miles, depending on driving conditions. Protect your investment, protect your precious cargo. All it takes is one purchase and sticking to that service calendar.
