My Hyundai dealer wanted 40 dollars for a new cabin filter and the engine air filter was 19 dollars, go figure?
maybe the $40 dollar number was an "installed" number - if you didn't know better, a dealer could convince you that the cabin air filter is a nightmare to install - on some cars, it really is.

As far as dirt goes, they mean what they say on the change interval. Usually, change intervals are just hype to get your money, but not on this filter.

I also have a 2008 Ford Taurus which does not have a cabin filter - I wish it did when I see pictures like these.

I think I got 4 out of a 20 x 20. I didn't use the pleated type just a blue washable kind that I will throw away instead of wash. 3.00 total for 4.
Na, you might as well not put ANY filter than... That green/blue filter maybe good to prevent leaves flying into your car (and damage the ventilation fan...), but any dust, smoke, smog, and even small debris WILL freely pass thru...

No, I bought the MOST EXPENSIVE pleated furnace filter so that it DOES the job.... Even so, per single filter it would be still costing you maybe 1/5 of the "real" Hyundai part....

Changed mine today. I am guessing its the original one.....oops. LOL
Changed mine at ~45K on principle. It still looked and smelled clean. We always keep our A/C on "Recirculation",
because we can't stand exhaust fumes and other interesting odors encountered on the highway.
