    I've heard that from a few people including my dealer.

    I'd never run a Fram anyways....

    The fact that Fram voids warranties was discussed on www.towrig.com a while back.

    If dodge says fram filters will void your warranty, than they have to provide you with a filter that does not void the warranty free of charge. There is a federal law that says so. I dont remember the name or number of the law but i'll see if i can get it at work tomorrow.(i work in auto parts)

    Basically if the dealer tells you that, ask for it in writing. They will not give it to you. If they DO give you a written statement saying an aftermarket filter (such as fram) will void the factory warranty, they are obligated by law to provide a sutible filter free of charge.


    ok found info about this subject, on frams website.

    link to Magnusson-Moss Warranty improvement Act:
