Are there any brands of cartridge filters I should avoid for my 2017 Lincoln 3.0 turbo? I usually use the Motorcraft but WM was out in my size so I bought a Fram cartridge. I am a bit worried about cartridge filter collapse with an aftermarket brand.

You are fine. Fram Ultra is actually a nice after market cartridge to use. I have also used Wix in the past for vehicles in the family with yearly drains.
Of all the cartridges I've seen they all look fine. Drive happy! thumbsup

At last check, my Fram Tough Guard cartridge hadn't collapsed. The other two brands tried so far didn't either.
