Default The manufacturer of a car can't charge for their oil filters if...

the manufacturer of the car requires you to use their OEM oil filter. I read
this in one of the groups. Does anyone know what organization set that
standard. How can I present that case to my dealer?

Dave,

Here you go:

The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (15 U.S.C. 2302(C))

This federal law regulates warranties for the protection of consumers. The
essence of the law concerning aftermarket auto parts is that a vehicle
manufacturer may not condition a written or implied warranty on the
consumers using parts or services which are identified by brand, trade, or
corporate name (such as the vehicle maker's brand) unless the parts or
service are provided free of charge. The law means that the use of an
aftermarket part alone is not cause for denying the warranty. However, the
law's protection does not extend to aftermarket parts in situations where
such parts actually caused the damage being claimed under the warranty.
Further, consumers are advised to be aware of any specific terms or
conditions stated in the warranty which may result in its being voided. The
law states in relevant part:

"No warrantor of a consumer product may condition his written or implied
warranty of such product on the consumers using, in connection with such
product, any article or service (other than article or service provided
without charge under the terms of the warranty) which is identified by
brand, trade or corporate name..." (15 U.S.C. 2302(C)).
