Fram engine air filters are sold at most auto parts stores. You will find replacement Fram engine air filter that will perfectly in any Hyundai air filter box. 

Fram filters provide great engine protection. There is no doubt about that. Our concern is that the added protection comes at the cost of air flow. You can't go wrong with Fram filters.

A new Fram filter will be better than a dirty filter. The nice things about Fram filters is that they manufacture Hyundai filters to match the OEM filter and they fit perfectly. 

The only minor issue we have had a few times with FRAM filters is that the orange rubber outer edge in a few cases has been thicker than the stock filter making it a little bit harder to lock the filter housing.
