I always buy a magnet for the oil filters, one thing you can’t use when it’s the cheap upper plastic type. But it’s a lease, I’m not spending the money on it.

I dont see the plastic holding up for the long run. And they cost double the spin on ones. Doesn’t make a sense.
Plastic cap holds up just fine and I'm paying $6 Cdn for a full synthetic oil filter.

Your argument doesn't stand up.

I see it’s aLeah’s argument with you. I have a few old vehicles. The plastic parts don’t hold up. So maybe when you listen from people who have been collecting cars for years you will learn.

Doesn't get hot enough to hurt this cap.

When I bought my 2020 Trax, I went out to the parking lot.......and looked at how easy an oil change could be. The salesman thought I was CRAZY!!! He said He just does His done, at the Dealership, He works for........of course.

WELL!! I like to to things for myself, thank you! I too, like the "top" filter.

I used to work at an "oil change" joint. Some of those cars, I could NOT believe, what a pain to change oil on!!! Skid plates that have to come off first. Bolts are already cross threaded.......YOU name it!!!! I hated that job!! Changing tires, was not much better. Even though I had enjoyed that more!!! But with TPMS and liberal use of tire sealer...??? THAT had its trials also!
