In non-desert, non-dirt road conditions, what do you think is a reasonable replacement interval? What about removing it and blowing the dust out with compressed air?

The recommended interval for the Accord that doesn't have a maintenance minder is 30K miles for normal driving. I would just do a visual inspection on the filter. You'll be surprised how much stuff got trapped in the filter in a just year. If it looked bad then replace it. I don't know if the compressed air will dislodge all the finer partials out of the filter?

Finally got my car back. On the left, filter with 18K miles (about 14 months). New oem in the middle and third party new Fram with embedded carbon.

The used filter looked worst than it is. I'll probably change it at 30K miles

I have never done this before and with the help of Einz's pictures in post #1 , it took me all of three minutes to swap out. Now that I know how to pop out the glovebox, I could probably do it in half that time. $100 to do this is a rip off.

I have owned my HRV for 14 months and 17500 miles, the filter looked pretty nasty and noticed a musty smell when turning on the A/C. I have mold allergies so yearly replacement for me since its so cheap and easy.

I just checked my air filter and it looked pretty dirty with about 13K miles and 13 months of driving. Just ordered one from Amazon (Einz's link in post #1 ) and should get it in 2 days. It is surprising how easy it is to get to the air filter.

Thanks for the posts.

I just got a flyer from my dealer. It is only $60 to change the cabin filter. Surprisingly, the air filter is only $30 to replace.
