When To Get 2016 Jeep Compass Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2016 Jeep Compass, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Compass bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2016 Jeep Compass in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Compass suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Jeep Compass suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Jeep Compass Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2016 Jeep Compass suspension system. 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 limit vibration and keep your Jeep up off the ground. 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. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Jeep Compass shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 Jeep Compass suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2016 Compass Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Compass's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Jeep Compass? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Jeep intended.
  • When should I have my Jeep Compass power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Compass is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Jeep's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
