Today, we're here to address a common concern that many of us have experienced - a musty smell and watery eyes while driving in your Kia Cerato 2017 YD 2.0L. It's as if your car has its own version of an indoor rainstorm. But fear not, Abbotts Auto Care is here to highlight the importance of regular servicing and the role it plays in ensuring a pleasant ride.

Clearing the Air

Picture this: you're cruising in your Kia Cerato, but the inside of your car doesn't feel as fresh as it should. Your eyes start to water, and you're greeted by a musty odor every time you drive, even if it's just a short trip to the shops.

One of our customers faced this exact issue - a cabin filled with an unpleasant smell and watery eyes during every drive.

Getting to the Root of the Problem

At Abbotts Auto Care, we believe in getting to the root of the issue. We removed the interior panels to access the cabin filter. What we found was quite alarming - the cabin filter was the original one fitted when the vehicle was assembled, and it had never been changed during previous services.

This filter was filled with dust, bird feathers, and even mould, creating an unhealthy mix to breathe in within a confined space like your car. No wonder our customer's eyes were watering!

Breathing Easy Again

With the issue identified, our skilled technicians got to work. We thoroughly cleaned the air conditioning unit with a powerful anti-bacterial product and replaced the cabin filter with a new one. The transformation was remarkable.

Our customer reported that the unpleasant smell and watery eyes were gone, and their driving experience was once again pleasant.

The Lesson in Regular Servicing

This case serves as a reminder that regular servicing is essential, not just for the vehicle's performance but for your health and comfort as well. Cabin filters should be changed every year, and this simple step can make a world of difference.

At Abbotts Auto Care, we're not just car experts; we're your partners in ensuring a comfortable and safe driving experience. Trust us for all your car needs and breathe easy in a fresh and pleasant car cabin. Regular servicing will save you from unexpected inconveniences, ensuring every drive is a comfortable one.
