What is the maintenance schedule for the 2009 Jeep Commander?

Here’s Why 2009 Jeep Commander Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Jeep Commander to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Commander. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Commander, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2009 Jeep Commander!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Jeep themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Commander running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2009 Jeep Commander problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Jeep Commander Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2009 Jeep Commander 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Commander's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2009 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. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Jeep Commander 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Commander stranded. Your Jeep Commander won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2009 Jeep Commander's engine run smoother. See Jeep's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2009 Commander in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2009 Jeep Commander.

Routine upkeep for your Jeep Commander suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Jeep Commander steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Jeep Commander's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Jeep Commander maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. We can help you with all those issues. 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.

  • When should I have Jeep Commander alignment checked? You know your Jeep Commander 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 switch my Jeep Commander to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Jeep Commander? 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 Jeep dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Jeep Commander 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.
