AIR FILTER OVERVIEW
YOU DESERVE FRESH AIR
Many people may not be aware that you even need to replace your cabin air filter. Failing to do so can result in a number of issues: it affects the quality of air that you inhale in the vehicle, as it’s the main gateway through which air enters the cabin. Delaying the interval between filter replacements allows contaminants and allergens into the cabin. Additionally, lack of routine air filter replacements can also contribute to decreased efficiency and increased emissions, as your vehicle requires more energy to force air through a dirty filter. To help prevent such issues, bring your vehicle in for an air filter replacement here at Cardenas Mazda.
Your Mazda’s engine needs air to be scrubbed of dirty and contaminants before entering the combustion system. Delaying engine air filter replacement can significantly degrade engine performance and efficiency. A dirty engine air filter starves your engine of oxygen it needs for effective combustion. In addition to reducing performance, a dirty engine air filter reduces efficiency by degrading even idle combustion force and dirtying combustion cylinders, deteriorating your engine’s effectiveness while forcing it to have to work harder to force air through the intake system.

Rene Cardenas and Cardenas Mazda are great supporters of the Brownsville Independent School District (BISD) and the students of the Brownsville Community. For 3 consecutive years, Cardenas Mazda has awarded a brand-new Mazda to one lucky graduating senior for perfect attendance. This is a year-long initiative to encourage and improve student attendance and enrollment in BISD. The winner is the result of a drawing from a culmination of perfect attendance students from each high school. Three other consolation prizes are also drawn. Additionally, 110 elementary, middle, and high school students, two per school, vie for 15 grand prize bundles as well. This program has been instrumental in encouraging perfect attendance thereby increasing academic achievement. There are many other initiatives that Cardenas has supported our Valley communities.
