FRAM Fresh Breeze Cabin Air Filter
I live in Virginia and I was told that we have some of the worst allergens in the country. The problem is my whole family has horrible allergies that is why I agreed to review the FRAM Fresh Breeze Cabin air filter . I am allergic to pollen which is often all over my car. I never really thought about the impact that the pollen on the outside of my car could have on my experience while driving. We usually use the air conditioner and I never really thought about the type of air filter I used. I would just take it to the dealership and say go ahead and put a new one in. Then I would wait to find out how horrible the price would be.
I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I could change it myself and the best thing is by using a filter that was designed to fight pollen and the particles from road dust. The FRAM Fresh Breeze cabin air filter is. I was asked to participate in this shopping trip but I always shop online. I do my research because just because someone says I will pay you to review this doesn’t mean I will. If I am going to spend my time researching, buying, and installing a product it has to benefit my family. The first thing I noticed when I went online to Walmart to research is the FRAM Fresh Breeze cabin air filter is it contained Arm and Hammer baking soda. I use baking soda to clean my house and keep my house smelling clean and I even use it to wash my dishes. I was confident that it is a product that I have used and can use again for the purpose of helping my family breathe cleaner air.
This is also embarrassing I fail miserably in knowing when to replace things in my car. I find that I depend on the dealership to tell me. I had no idea you have to replace your cabin filter once or twice a year. I decided since know now, I am putting it in my calendar in my iPhone.
Oh how embarassing ..this is what my filter looked like.
FRAM Fresh Breeze Cabin Air Filter
Okay so I went online to Walmart Online. I need to buy my stuff online and have it ready for pick up. I also wanted to report on both purchase processes. I usually do the site to store option on items that have a lot of item numbers. I have a horrible time with item numbers so it is easier for me to just do it online. I was able to easily search my make and model of my car using the FRAM site I went there and then searched on walmart.com for the filter I needed. I wanted to make sure they had the one I needed at my store. They did so I ordered it online for pick-up.
I also documented the process of looking up your make and model car in the book attached to the shelf. It was very easy to use and understand. The Walmart did have the part I needed on the shelf as well. I could have skipped buying it online and just went straight to the store but I like to make sure before I drag three children shopping.
I then came home and watched the install video. It was just 46 second long. This is the video for my Honda . I can’t believe that I have paid a ton of money to have my air filter changed when it takes only 10 minutes to complete. This has been an eye opening experiment in saving my family from the allergens and saving my budget by doing this maintenance by myself.
I had to have my husband help me pop off the glove box only because I was a chicken about breaking something. I did change it all by myself and put it back together again. I now know how to do it and I will do it again. It was such an easy experience buying the item online and picking it up. Then installing the FRAM Fresh Breeze. I can say that I am sure I saved a lot by doing the repair myself. The air in the car smells better and I know the filter is cleaner. I think it is important to try new things and to find new ways to save. I am positive that if i paid the dealer to change the filter it would have cost more than $18.00 and change for the filter and 10 minutes of my time. I was so excited by how easy it is to buy a filter at Walmart and the Quality of the FRAM Fresh Breeze Filter that I bought them for our other cars to change.
