Nissan is trying to help people who were affected by the recent wildfires in Northern and Southern California.

The automaker is offering free-in cabin filter replacement for people impacted by the fires.

The service will be available through January 31 of 2019. It applies to any Nissan vehicle with an in-cabin microfilter.

Nissan says the wildfires and the intense smoke that comes with them are a good reminder to get your filter checked. These filters are separate from the engine air filter. They clean the air that enters the car and can trap pollen, bacteria, dust, and other pollutants which could impact air quality in the car.

There are 50 dealerships participating in the free service, including Coast Nissan in San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria Nissan, and Santa Barbara Nissan.

Car owners can schedule an appointment for the service, which also includes labor for installation and inspection.

“We are heartbroken by the devastation of these wildfires and want to help those who have been affected in some way,” said Kevin Wagstaff, regional vice president, Nissan North America. “We can only hope this offer of a free in-cabin microfilter replacement provides some relief as communities begin to rebuild.”
