Lifetime fuel filter questions?

Can someone confirm whether the 2009 has a lifetime fuel filter or not.
Service manual says it needs to be replaced every 30k miles but apparantly that might not be true.

Fuel filter should be located undercarriage near the rear passenger wheel?

Your car could have the lifetime fuel filter. It is actually built in as part of the fuel pump. But if you do have a fuel filter it should be located in front of the gas tank on the passenger side of the vehicle. I am sure others will chime in to offer their advice as well. So please be patient for your answers.

As far as my concern there is no such thing as a lifetime fuel filter, put that right in the same column as lifetime automatic transmission fluid that prematurely wears your trans out............
