I just purchased some Mobil 1 oil filters from Walmart on clearance for $3.00 each which is very reasonable. They fit our 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with a 3.6 engine. I noticed after I got home the say made in Korea on the filter. Are these real Mobil 1 filters and are they any good?

That makes me feel better. I bought about a dozen of those filters.

Quite a few filter brands are made in Korea, not anything I would worry about (and don't I bought a few of the M1 clearance filters, as well as a few other MIK filters).

I bought a bunch of them from WMT on clearance too, Korean made. Fram Ultras I have for the 3.6 Pentastar are made in Korea as well. Both filters are fine.

A lot of cartridge filters seem to be Korean

The Fram Ultra for that application is also Korean. Fortunately, the Wix XP/Napa Platinum is US-made

Got a real deal on some North Korean filters. One size fits every car ever made.

Korean-made hold up very well for the low price-paid. Highly recommended.

Yes, they are real. If you go to the link below, enter your vehicle information then click on M1C-456A second thumbnail pic option shows cartridge with coo on it.

As opposed to spin on type from same manufacturer(s), many cartridge applications have off shore coo, generally either S. Korea or China.

relax, they're from SOUTH Korea. our friends. (my buddy's little Brother is getting deployed there shortly.)

not made by 'lil kim's nation of brainwashed slaves.
(though I do wonder how many things "made in China" are really made in DPRK....)

And probably just as good as made in Japan. Think Honda vs. Hyundai. Or another way to look at it, Japan is to Korea when auto parts quality is concerned as USA is to Canada.
