Cabin Air Filters - After Market vs OEM from Dealership

5147 Views 8 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  Sternchallis
I just bought my car (2014 Mazda 3) and wanted to do some maintenance myself. The dealership changed my oil and suggested to get my cabin air filter done for $58.

I declined saying I would do it myself - even though I've never done it. Anyway, I went onto Amazon and found an after market cabin air filter for $9.97 from cleenaire 4561. It kind of shocked me to see it for so cheap.. I was expecting at least $20? But it is rated good.

Is there any downside from using an after-market filter rather than having a dealership put in an OEM one? It seems to be good quality but this is something I dont know much about

Thank you!
