I changed the engine air filter on my 2020 Accord Hybrid (bought new with 23 miles in May 2021). It is really dirty with with carbon. 18000 miles on it. I have taken the car to Honda twice to change the oil when it got to around 20% life. I'm surprised

they never even looked at the air filter. Does this look normal? Signs of a problem?

That looks very dirty to me for only 18,000 mi on it. My dealership try to get me to change mine around 15 -20,000 mi too, except they wanted to try and charge me $109. They actually took a picture and attached it to the service order and it did not look anywhere near that bad. I went online on Amazon and got one for $9.

I got the real one off of an online Honda Parts. I think the black is from the fires we had last summer.
That (fires) would definitely be the cause of it being that dirty. If you haven't already you may want to check/replace the cabin filter it's probably in the same condition.
