Correct! Using a Napa Gold now, sad that the filters are made in S. Korea.

Perhaps. But maybe they cut down a Korean tree instead of an American one.

While you couldn't give me a Fram oil filter their air filters are ok. I wouldn't go nuts trying to get a "premium" paper filter. Just get a good name brand filter like Purolator( what I used = $16 ), Hastings, Baldwin, Wix/Napa Gold, etc... Even the MOPAR one is fine.

Air filters are hard to find locally for the Patriot on 2011+ models so you will probably have to order it or go to the dealer.
