How often should I service my 2008 Jeep Commander?

Here’s Why 2008 Jeep Commander Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Jeep Commander and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Commander could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Commander maintenance. Just follow your 2008 Jeep Commander maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Jeep themselves. 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 Commander running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2008 Jeep Commander problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep Commander

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2008 Jeep Commander 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 Commander’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2008 Jeep Commander? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Jeep Commander battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Commander) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Jeep Commander 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2008 Jeep Commander running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2008 Commander. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2008 Jeep Commander.

Maintaining your Jeep Commander steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Jeep Commander suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Jeep Commander's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Jeep Commander maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Jeep Commander’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Jeep Commander radiator? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it.
