The cabin air filter (also known as the pollen filter, AC filter, dust filter, hvac filter and hepa filter) in your 2008 Smart Fortwo cleans the air that you and your passengers breath inside of your car. You need to change it at least once a year or every 20,000 miles, whichever comes first. In addition to improving the air quality of your Fortwo, replacing your cabin air filter will put less strain on your heating and air conditioning system and can increase your gas mileage. These filters are fairly inexpensive, so check out our parts page for great deals on a new one (tip: buy several, when you go to check the cabin air filter on your Fortwo, you can easily swap it for a new one if it is dirty).
