          Comments about Purolator Classic Oil Filters:

          I really enjoy changing the oil in our 3 cars because it's easy, save money and know that the job was done right. Been using Puralator Classic and Pure Ones for a long time. For an extended OC interval or if the filter is in a difficult location (two oil changes before filter change), I'll use the Pure Ones. For a 4-5k mi. OC, I'll go w/the Classic. Never had any issues w/either filter. For the price it's hard to beat either filter. I've bought in the past MUCH more expensive filters but not sure if it was really necessary. I trust the Purator brand and will buy their filters in the future.

            this filter is made better than other name brands. they are made of parts that are more durable, inside as well. I have seen the inside and they are made with better material.

              I have a 2001 Ford Ranger and a 2010 Hyundai Sonata that I use Purolator filters on. I also use their air filters. Never any problems with either. Great quality at a great price.

                Comments about Purolator Classic Oil Filters:

                This is A pretty good oil filter. Some people say a oil filter is a oil filter, there all the same but thats pretty much false. Cheap oil filters get clogged quick and are alot smaller in length and roundness compared to the better ones. Bottom line its a better filter then a quick stop oil change place would use and bigger but its also not top of the line, its defiantly worth buying though. I bought this one and was totally satisfied, next one will be a more expensive one just to compare the dirt and grid one collects verse the other.

                  Comments about Purolator Classic Oil Filters:

                  I'm picky about my oil filters, and after reading all the reviews and comparisons out there, I TRUST Purolator filters to protect my engine! I use them on all my vehicles - truck, cars, motorcycles, ATV, lawnmower, and anywhere else I need a quality filter. Sure, I could pay more for a slightly better filter... but I can also pay more for garbage filters too...
