What is the maintenance schedule for the 2016 Jeep Compass?

Here’s Why 2016 Jeep Compass Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Jeep Compass to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, 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. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2016 Jeep Compass!

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 Compass running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2016 Jeep Compass problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep Compass

Bring your 2016 Jeep Compass to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2016 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Compass may need a replacement battery sooner. 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. 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, 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 2016 Jeep Compass engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2016 Compass. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2016 Jeep Compass? We can help with that, too!

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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Jeep Compass steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Jeep Compass's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Jeep Compass services, 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. 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. Need a new Jeep Compass radiator? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too.

Questions About 2016 Jeep Compass Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2016 Jeep Compass. Get answers to common Jeep Compass maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Jeep Compass? You know your Jeep Compass 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 use high mileage oil in my Jeep Compass? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Jeep Compass engines.
  • Can Jeep dashboard warning lights wait? 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
