F for Fail 

cant believe I used to buy these 

I think at one time they were well made 

Back in the 60s and 70s they were fairly good compared to the competition but technology got better and the F brand got cheaper! 😟

They used to be good, is true. But when too much is spent on advertising, the cost has to come out of something. So the price goes up or the parts get cheaper. It's my guess that the Fram line of filters was sold and the buyer wanted to make a profit but not spend anything to do so. There must be a term used when you buy a company's reputation and cheapen the product, counting of the name to sell it.

Corporate greed is ruining a lot of good products. Originally Optima batteries were made here where I live but after they were bought the new owner moved the plant to Mexico, the price went up and the quality went down. How anyone with a conscience can lower costs while raising prices is beyond me. 😟
