What are your thoughts on buying/using a Honda filter vs a non-Honda filter. I found a Honda cabin air filter on Amazon for $16 and a Honda engine filter for $22. Of course there's cheaper filters that aren't Honda brand, but wondering if you think there's any major difference in quality. I'm thinking of just heading out to Auto Zone and finding it there. Thoughts?

I bought Purolator Breatheasy cabin air filters from Amazon for my truck and CR-V. When the time comes to replace the engine air filter I'll pick up a NAPA Gold.

This is the CR-V filter, looks like the price has gone up some, I paid about $15 ea. Glad I bought three.

I think the Fram engine air filter is fine, perhaps even better than the Honda one. Same with their cabin air filter.

HandA used to sell Micron cabin filters. Don't know if they still do or not. They worked well for filtering out the ash we had a couple years ago from the fires we had here in SoCal.
I've only replaced engine filters with the K&N drop in replacement filter.

I just ordered cabin filter from Rockauto.com and paid $5.00 and they look....feel, and fit just like the NAPA filters that I was paying $15 for. I guess the next time I order Ill get 4,5 or so so I have on hand.

I was getting my Frams from Fleet Farm for under $10 for the cabin and the air filters. Last time I looked they didn't have stock, but I bought four the previous trip. lol

The Frams work fine...both on our CR V and my Acura. Same cabin, different air filters .

I used any air filters I can find that are cheap. So most stocked brands like Ryco would be a luxury item for me. Honda's do not produce their own filters just like they don't produce their own oil/fluids. So there is no huge differences in my opinion as long as it has a good enough filter element. Get it from a known seller or if you prefer, a known brand name for peace of mind. Personally, I have used a lot of different non-branded filters on different cars. Some filters I bought off ebay and have not noticed the engine perform any worse and oil changes does not seem excessively dirty or contain huge particles.

I use Fram, etc., although I don't know of anyway to know if various aftermarket filters are as good or better than original equipment. I don't think either Honda or after market publish data on filtration effectiveness, etc.

^^^ Don't forget to take it out of the box...works better that way, LOL.

If you haven't replaced the old one yet, post a pic of the new one so we can compare pleats, thickness, etc.

Hard for anyone to help you since different yrs have different procedures on changing that filter.
Google and youtube.com can be helpful.
