Re: This guy hates Fram filters
There are other filters not as well known that are of worse quality as these are just merely the more popular brands. 99.999% of people don't take their filters apart to inspect build quality before the install. I ran Fram on my older Dodge 2.5L cars with no issues for over 450,000kms combined. I preferred the easy grip of the one filter type and ran that with full synthetic oil.
This reminds me of the whole Firestone tire problem years ago. It wasn't necessarily the tires fault for causing the accidents, it was inexperienced drivers who also were reluctant to keep up with tire rotations and ran their front tires bald. Ford blamed the loss of vehicle control on faulty tires because they can't blame it on Ford Drivers...common, ha. If an oil filter fell apart in my engine and was found to be the cause, it would merely give me a better case to buy a new vehicle :) I've never bought an oil filter under $8, even for regular oil. I have to give this guy some praise for taking all the filters apart, it's no easy feat.
