2021 Jeep Cherokee Scheduled Maintenance

Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2021 Jeep Cherokee

What is the maintenance schedule for the 2021 Jeep Cherokee?

Here’s Why 2021 Jeep Cherokee Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Jeep Cherokee and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Cherokee has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. 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 2021 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, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2021 Jeep Cherokee problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep Cherokee

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2021 Jeep Cherokee for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2021 Jeep Cherokee? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Jeep Cherokee battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Cherokee stranded. Your Jeep Cherokee won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2021 Jeep Cherokee engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2021 Cherokee. 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2021 Jeep Cherokee.

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!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. 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 fall behind on routine Jeep Cherokee maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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. Need a new Jeep Cherokee radiator? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2021 Jeep Cherokee maintenance and repairs.
