Overview of Essential Jeep Cherokee Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2017 Jeep Cherokee for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Cherokee’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2017 Jeep Cherokee be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Cherokee may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Jeep Cherokee battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Cherokee) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Jeep Cherokee could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2017 Jeep Cherokee's engine run smoother.

Questions About 2017 Jeep Cherokee Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2017 Jeep Cherokee. Get answers to common Jeep Cherokee maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Jeep Cherokee alignment checked? You know your Jeep Cherokee better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Jeep Cherokee? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Jeep Cherokee engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Jeep? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Jeep Cherokee in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
