Suspension Service & Repair for 2012 Jeep Compass

2012 Jeep Compass Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2012 Jeep Compass suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2012 Jeep Compass Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2012 Jeep Compass, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Compass jolts, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2012 Jeep Compass in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Compass suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Compass steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Jeep Compass

Your 2012 Jeep Compass’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Compass’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Jeep Compass shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Compass’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 Compass Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Jeep's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Jeep Compass? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Jeep intended.
  • When does Jeep Compass power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Compass’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Jeep's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
