Your Guide to 2008 Jeep Compass Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Jeep Compass, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Compass could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Compass, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2008 Jeep Compass!

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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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 Compass running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2008 Jeep Compass problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Jeep Compass Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2008 Jeep Compass 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Compass's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2008 Jeep Compass be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Compass may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Jeep Compass 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Compass stranded. Your Jeep Compass won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2008 Jeep Compass 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 Compass. 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 Compass.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Jeep Compass can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Jeep Compass 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 Compass's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Jeep Compass maintenance, 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 Compass engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Jeep Compass? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2008 Jeep Compass maintenance and repairs.

Don’t wait until something goes wrong with your car. Visit your nearest location for proactive maintenance today.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2008 Jeep Compass. Get answers to common Jeep Compass maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Jeep Compass? 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 should I switch my Jeep Compass to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Jeep Compass? 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 Compass, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
