I drive a completely stock 2007 ZX3, 2.0 w/ 5spd. I have put about 5,000 on it since I've owned it and figured it was about time for a fresh air filter.
I went to the local Auto Zone and told the guy at the computer what I needed so that he could look it up and give me the part number. His computer readout said that the stock air filter was a part that "didn't need to be replaced under normal driving conditions". He said it was good for the life of the vehicle.
This can't be right, even the owner's manual says to change it every 5k, is Auto Zone just retarded? or this there some validity to this claim.
I think I'll just get a performance intake, that'll solve this problem. [cheers]
