What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2012 Jeep Compass?

Here’s Why 2012 Jeep Compass Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Jeep Compass to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Compass. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Compass maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2012 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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Compass running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2012 Jeep Compass problems later.

Overview of Essential Jeep Compass Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 Jeep Compass and our technicians will jump right in 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 Compass’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2012 Jeep Compass? Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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 Compass battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Compass) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Jeep Compass could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2012 Jeep Compass running newer, longer. See Jeep's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2012 Compass 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2012 Jeep Compass.

Routine upkeep for your Jeep Compass 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 Compass steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Jeep Compass's steering and suspension system.

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!). 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. Need a new Jeep Compass radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2012 Jeep Compass maintenance.
