VEHICLE MANUFACTURERS’ WARRANTIES
In the United States: Use of FRAM® products will not void your Original Equipment warranty. A manufacturer may not require the use of any brand of filter unless either the manufacturer provides the filter for free-of-charge under terms of the warranty or the manufacturer successfully demonstrates to the Federal Trade Commission that its product will not work properly without a specified item or service. To date, the FTC has not made any such
determination for filtration products. If a manufacturer makes a claim that using a FRAM® product will void or has voided your warranty, ask the manufacturer to provide this statement in writing.
Outside of the United States: FRAM® processes warranty claims on a world-wide basis. Check the terms of your Original Equipment warranty which may require the use of a specific brand of filter for a valid warranty claim and may limit or void the warranty as a result of the use or installation of other filters.
