Pepboys is offering a rebate promotion with Fram Air Filters. You get $10 back for every 2 filters you purchase. There are other items eligible on the rebate form too. You can read about them. I do have good experience with their air filters. So hopefully you guys can benefit from this.

Don't wanna start a debate, but I ran my '06 Scion with either Fram or eBay cheap Chinese air filters (Vigor is the brand?) and still could detect physically and visibly the dirt and debris collected onto the filter elements.
I usually check my air filter every 5,000 or so as I change the oil. Which car do you drive? What kind of environment are you driving in? I don't know how different your parameters are to claim my experience is better or your experience is worse, unless we have the used oil analysis or other tests to narrow down the air filter quality.
lonnyted said: I agree Purolator air filters are much better than Fram. Same goes when comparing Purolator oil filters to the Fram filters. No comparison. Buy both and you can see the quality in the Purolator.
I agree completely. In my experience, Fram is junk. Even in their tv commercial, it shows their own filter exploding when placed under extreme pressure. What does that prove??
If the filter element does not have holes and the sealing surfaces are making good contact with the air box, then there is no issue with the air filter. All of the Fram air filters that I have seen are 100% fully functional.
