The upper end of the Fram line are okay but they are "economy" filters and as such are not made with the same quality components as filters like Wix and Baldwin. Starting with my new Land Rover in 1973 I've used Fram filters in all my/our vehicles (except our 2011 Subaru Forester) and had no issues. But I change the oil and filter every 3,000 miles and with that kind of frequency the quality of the oil filter isn't going to make much difference as long as it's at least halfway decent.
I changed all the vehicles (except Subaru) to NAPA/Wix a year or so ago, more to support the local NAPA store than because I thought the Wix filters were going to make any signficant difference. But they are better built than Fram.
