Here’s Why 2018 Jeep Cherokee Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Jeep Cherokee, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Cherokee has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Cherokee maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2018 Jeep Cherokee!

Jeep knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Cherokee running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Jeep Cherokee problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep Cherokee

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2018 Jeep Cherokee and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2018 Jeep Cherokee. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Cherokee may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Jeep Cherokee battery. 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 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2018 Jeep Cherokee engine. To learn how often Jeep recommends you have the oil changed in your 2018 Cherokee, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2018 Jeep Cherokee? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Jeep Cherokee steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Jeep Cherokee steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Jeep Cherokee's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Jeep Cherokee services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Jeep Cherokee engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Jeep Cherokee? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too.

2018 Jeep Cherokee Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 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? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Jeep Cherokee need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Jeep Cherokee? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Jeep? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Jeep Cherokee, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
