Problems with WIX filters
Stop buying WIX Filters. What da heck went wrong with WIX filters and product Quality & a "Go pound salt" customer service?
Called WIX customer, 10/25/2023, their 'customer' service guy refused to Warranty 7 of their filters, that they even agreed was assembly wrong at their factory!
1525 Marietta St.
Gastonia, NC 28052
Guy matched the build dates to via their stamping on the opposite end of the threaded canister:12022DG (January 2022, DG for Dixon Plant:
1525 S. Marietta St.
Gastonia, NC 28054
(PO Box 1902
Gastonia, NC 28053-1902)
Then asked for the thread information by the stamping by the hole:
Stamping read: M22-S (which even the guy said was utterly wrong, and was built wrong!) 7 filterS were all assembly wrong AT THE FACTORY.
The correct threads are 13/16-S.
Guy said it was NOT THEIR PROBLEM!
Go! talk to whom you bought them from, and ask them for help, and hung up!!! NO kidding!
Would not even let me talk to the Supervisor. This guy was being such a jackass, said, "I am the only one that works here."
I did call WIX customer service back later that day, and spoke to a woman at the call center. Asked to speak with the Supervisor but was only allowed to leave my name and phone number, on 10/25/2023... no call back (of course).

Thanks for the heads up.
Are other brand filters that much better and that much less expensive than OEM filters? For the past 10 years or so I always buy OEM filters and find that if you shop around you can get a good deal on them from online dealers / retailers or even local dealers. My local Toyota dealer often runs 20% off promotions on on their website for different filters, including oil, cabin and air filters.
