    Has anyone had good luck with purchasing cabin air filters online that are as good as OEM filters (or actual OEM filters) at a good price? If so, from what website? Thanks.

    ebay sellers have OEMs. I just bought a combo engine/cabin for $32 shipped. Not the charcoal cabin type though.

    I ordered TYC cabin air filters. Charcoal infused and OEM compliant they are an excellent buy.

    i just put in an stp cabin filter. all they had at auto zone. worst piece of junk i've ever seen. no filter braces, so when you slide it in, it collapses, and only 3/4 of the opening is covered. also, i didn't note how the old one came out, and it's marked 'up' with an arrow, while the stp is marked 'air flow' with an arrow. looking at the dirty side, i think the air flows from bottom to top. i'll look online for another and return this one to auto zone. shame on them for carrying a product this bad. are all stp products this awful?

    For the 7 years I owned the 2005. I just used ordinary AC filter material on the cabin and Engine. Worked fine, new owners are still using the car. Costs: 50. Cents.

    I bought some type of cabin filter from Auto Zone for my Prius a couple of years ago. It did not fit right as well. It was marked like the one you bought and I could not figure out how it went in. An OEM Toyota filter is marked "UP" and that is the way I put it in. I use nothing but Toyota filters. They are quality and they are not that expensive. My opinion.
