What to Know About 2009 Jeep Compass Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Jeep Compass, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Compass. 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. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2009 Jeep Compass!

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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Compass perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2009 Jeep Compass problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Jeep Compass Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2009 Jeep Compass to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Compass. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2009 Jeep Compass? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Compass) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Jeep Compass won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2009 Jeep Compass engine. See Jeep's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2009 Compass in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2009 Jeep Compass.

Maintaining your Jeep Compass steering and suspension 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. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, 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. Components within your Jeep Compass's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Jeep Compass maintenance, 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 Compass’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Jeep Compass? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2009 Jeep Compass maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.
