2022 Forester Sport
I think it is going to depend whether or not the dealer still has a supply of blue filters. The part numbers in the TSB now supersedes the old number.
The "kid" where my son works is 65 years old. Apparently being a lube jockey is a nice retirement gig.<snip> the kid doing the oil changes at the dealership <snip>
That's many YT videos. Oil filters are like underwear. Every brand gets the job done, it's more important that they are changed on a regular basis.Wow that was a lot of talking for not much information.
Not really worthless, but pretty close. Folks love to toss around Magnuson-Moss but in reality there are very few cases of it being used. The cost and aggravation of litigation is usually more than the repair in question.Because that paper is worthless in reality.
OEM filters are in short supply. Sometimes they have to replace the filter with whatever filter they can get their hands on.I just purchased a CPO 2017 Forester XT yesterday. The dealer showed me the paperwork for the work they did to get the car up to the CPO standard which included an oil change. They used a Carquest R84712 oil filter and not one of the SOA recommended ones.
I’m surprised that they didn’t use an OEM filter and went with a low priced Carquest one. I did purchase a NAPA Gold filter this afternoon with the intent to swap out the Carquest in the next day or two so I have a higher quality filter installed.
