Unlike most cabin air filters, the Fresh Breeze is impregnated with carbon and baking soda to reduce odors. It is hard to tell how much difference it makes, but the price is lower than for competing name brands. Physically the filter seems to be well constructed. I don't have a fancy laboratory to do any in-depth testing, but what mortal does?

Amazon's application fitment guide for this part is messed up. I know for a fact this size fits a 2003 Honda Accord and a 2006 Acura TSX, even though Amazon says it doesn't. Check the fram.com website to get the correct number for your vehicle.

I was told by a reputable Honda Dealer in the Dallas area that this filter would cost me $120.00 to have replaced. I bought 2 of these for both my wife and I's Honda Accords, and installed them both in less than 5 minutes time. It saved me over $200.00 to do this myself. My air conditioner is fresh now.

I too have been told anywhere from $90-$120 by my Honda dealer to have this filter replaced. Sad thing is that I unknowingly paid such an amount ($90) as part of a 30k mile service.

Now that I know better, I tell the Honda service person up front that I do not need the cabin filter replaced...I can do it myself. Still, they never fail to recommend the filter be replaced and I kindly tell them I can do it in 5 minutes for $20. Last time it was,'Look how gray this thing is, I've never seen one so dirty'. I immediately pulled out my iPhone, pulled up this filter on Amazon, and pointed out that it is a charcoal filter and should be that color...and told them the exact date/mileage I replaced (b/c I knew this would come up).

One improvement FRAM could make is including a maintenance sticker for the cabin filter door/lid. Like one you get for oil changes. I plan to tape my own little note with such info when I replace mine in two months.

Better deal than dealer option. Perfect fit for our 2006 Honda Odyssey. While instructions are included in the box, steps 7 and 8 of [...] are helpful supplements.

Works in a 2007 CR-V dealer asked for $70 for their OEM one. The build quality seems the same or better then the original filter and I'm was amazed how flippin easy it was to replace. The glove box just snaps right open, no screws or anything. Get this filter or I'll hunt you down for wasting your money! ^^

I don't notice a difference in air quality with this filter vs. a standard white one. I still smell outdoor smells (and dirty exhaust smells) and my nose still runs during allergy season if I leave outside air on.

Fits and functions fine, I just don't see it being massively better than OEM.

2012 Honda Accord.

Although the recommended service interval is three years, I replace the cabin air filter annually (usually in late fall after most of the fallen leaves are gone) because of the filter captures a lot of debris within a year. Also, I have noticed the climate control system heats up and cools off the interior faster after a new filter has been installed.

Installation is fairly straightforward and can be performed in approximately 10 minutes once you know how to access the filter housing. The included instructions were somewhat general for a variety of vehicles. The instructions were applicable for the first generation Acura TSX, and they can probably guide one through the process for their vehicle.

In my experience, the filter is slightly larger than the OEM filter, and therefore requires some manipulation and bending to squeeze the filter into the plastic frame. Next, the top and bottom pleats can be guided into the slotted channels that secure the filter element to the frame.

I am uncertain as to the efficacy of the activated carbon and baking soda for deodorizing the cabin air. I haven't noticed a difference compared to a regular filter, but I do not smell a musty odor when using the AC either.

This replaced the factory OEM cabin air filter on 2009 Honda Odyssey (40Kmi+). Since we had driven this vehicle in an area heavy with pollen & dust I decided to replace it earlier than Honda recommends.

PROs:
CHEAP. $18.44 is comparable to the Honda Stealership [Dealer] price of $26.30 plus tax for OEM filters.
FEATURES. You get carbon & baking soda to clean the air in your cabin [not in the OEM part].
EASY INSTALL. Any do-it-yourselfer can replace this part with minimum tools.
SAVES MONEY. The Stealership will charge you $200+ to replace this $18 part that takes less than 15 minutes to install.

CONs:
None at this time.

NOTES: Be careful when removing your glovebox in the Odyssey, the two side clips holding it in have little plastic tabs that can break easily. Most likely those plastic tabs would be more than the cost of this filter. The factory original cabin air filter was FILTHY with over 6 intact insects embedded into it, including a dryed-out yellow jacket. So these filters do work! If you have Amazon prime you can save some money buying parts online instead of driving around town & paying tax at the stealerships.

Much better than the cheap, generic filter that comes with the car. It's well-constructed, with baking soda and carbon embedded in the filter pleats. It is like having a HEPA filter running inside your car. The air in my car smells much fresher now. It fits my 2007 Honda Accord perfectly.

We just purchased a 2008 CR-V EX-L and I read that there was an air filter for the cabin. After looking this up I found this filter on Amazon and it has worked nicely. The old filter was not that dirty but because it is a used vehicle I wanted to change it. Wife and kids drive the car mostly.

Installation: (SEE PICTURES ABOVE FOR STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS)
This was ridiculously easy to install. On the 2008 CR-V you just open the glove box. On the right hand side of the glove box is a latch with a hook. Just un-hook this latch and the glove box will drop. Then just push in the top sides of the glove box and it will drop completely exposing the filter area. Now, just look up inside and you will see the filter. It is rectangle in shape and has two clips - one on the left and one on the right. Just push these clips inward and pull at the same time. The filter tray will slide out. Take the old filter out of the tray, replace with new, slide back inside and make sure you hear the clips snap. Then put the glove box back in place (reverse previous steps) and you are good to go!

PROS:
Fits perfect
Easy to install - 3 minutes tops
Charcoal/baking soda nice added feature
SAVES MONEY - Dealer fees HIGH!

CONS:
NONE
