2004 Forus Z3 Eternal Airfilter?

Ok, so according to the book, Ford & my mechanic my ford focus has a FOREVER airfilter??? what the &^%$ is that????????? I am not sure I feel comfortable with an airfilter I never have to change.....and to be perfectly frank I do NOT trust FORD at all..............no matter what they say. Does anyone else have this NEVER change air filter????

On page 209 of the owners manual, it shows that it is a lifetime filter. There's an "Air filter service minder" that tells if it needs replacement. That's the first I've known about it too.

The filter is supposed to be good for 150,000 miles. The cost of a new one is $383.00 with a discount. Hopefuly the price goes down before you need one.
