Just finished changing my oil and cabin filters in the truck. Seems I was overdue on the filters. The first time I changed a few years ago was the first time I thought to change them. Just a heads up in case you're one of the many who neglect or don't think about it.

A few months ago I changed them in my Mom's 20 year old Honda. Must have been 100 dead moths in there. And the car had always been serviced by actual Honda dealers. I checked the service records, the filters had never been changed in 173,000 miles. It's a real pain to get to them and change them, so they didn't bother. At least they didn't charge for something they didn't do.

The wife's 2012 Nissan Versa does not come with the cabin air filter! Nissan made the slot for the filter to go into but decided not to manufacture a filter for it! .... Apperently the 2013' and 2014's were the same way.

How has the Versa been otherwise?

When did they start putting them in? Serious question as I have never heard of them. My 2003 Silverado has only 61,000 miles on it, how clogged could they be if I even have them? See, I really don't know everything. ;-)

Ive got an 01 Sierra. 2-3 small bolts hold a plastic tray under the passenger side dash. Then one small bolt/screw hold a plastic clip that also has a finger latch doohickey. The filters are ganged up side by side lengthwise in the tray.

On mine they were 5-8mm bolts. I think the 00-03 sierra/silverado are the same then changed up in 04.

I dunno. OPs pic looked like the filter was doing its job just fine. Couple taps on the concrete to remove the loose debris and the filter should be good for another 100K miles.
