Like any filter, your car’s cabin filter prevents unwanted particles from passing through.  In this case, cabin air filters protect your vehicle’s HVAC system from bacteria, dust and pollen.  Cabin air filters also, and importantly, prevent exhaust gas from entering into your heating and A/C ventilation systems.
