If you must park your vehicle under trees, make sure that leaves and needles don’t accumulate in your car’s cracks and crevices or in the cowl in front of the windshield. Lift the hood and clean it out or else drains may plug and rust components. When leaving your car, lock the doors with the windows up. Don’t leave valuables in the car, store them in your trunk. Never place your garage door opener near your registration – it’s an open invitation for thieves to rob your home. Most vehicles have cabin air filters. These filters are designed to create fresh, clean air for passengers. They should be replaced every 15 to 20-thousand miles… about the same schedule as your engine’s air filter.
