Exact fit for my 2011 Sonata 2.0T. A little flimsy, but holds up fine. For the price, I change the cabin filter out every 6 months. Ignore manufacture suggestion of 12-15,000 miles. It's filthy by 6 months/6-7,500 miles, and for the price and easy install, you are still saving sizable money as compared to a dealership charging $45+ to change it out. This filter is actually ideal. Thinner and more pliable so it won't strain the blower motor, and catches all of the necessary particulates. OEM, and some aftermarket filters with thicker pleats and even charcoal, will not only strain the weak blower motor that the Sonata has, it will also restrict airflow, which is also an issue with the Sonata, and lead to blower motor failure in time. Changing the Sonata cabin filter is perhaps the easiest thing you can do on your own, in under a minute.

It does the job at hand

This product will do the job as designed but since it's a little flimsy I don't know how long it will last before its time to change.

      I think this product could be designed better. It appears cheaply made but for the money it is worth the dollar spent.

          A:

          I'm glad to assist, RacerJim! This Purolator Cabin Air Filter - Part No. C36179 is made of a non-woven, uniquely engineered media that traps and retains the finest harmful dust and pollen. This is the carbonized type filter to absorb moisture and bad odor inside the A/C box (behind the glove box).
