I'm going for oil change this Friday and dealer claims I'll need air filters changed. I don't see schedule recommendations for filters at 17,000 miles. Any suggestions?

easily checked yourself. just pull out the engine filter and look. it will take less than two minutes.

If it easy then I'll do it myself. No point paying dealer for filter replacement.

I'm at 15k miles. I bought a filter at the dealer intending to replace it. When I popped the housing open (SUPER easy 15 second max affair), the filter was very clean looking still. So I put it back and I'll save the new filter for another day.

Service manual for my 2019 Ascent shows 30,000 miles as recommended interval for replacing engine air filter.

I changed both my cabin air filter and engine air filter at 13 months.
The cabin air filter was filthy. We had bad smoke in WA this summer. I'm definitely glad I replaced that one.

Engine air filter was not terribly dirty. I went ahead and replaced it anyway. I figure for ~$20 I'd rather have the engine breathing at it's best.
