I'm at 25k miles, on a 2012.
FRAM has a cabin filter that appears to have more activated charcoal, plus baking soda, that fits perfectly. It appears to help a little bit with the "stale socks" syndrome that appears when A/C is turned off and all the moisture starts to dry out. That, plus a good dose of Frigi-Fresh [available at any parts store] helps a bit. Problem is that the A/C makes an excellent breeding ground for fungus, mold, etc. and the occasional rodent.
