Take care of your Jeep Compass and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Compass has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? 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 2017 Jeep Compass!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Jeep, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2017 Jeep Compass problems later.

Overview of Essential Jeep Compass Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2017 Jeep Compass and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Compass's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2017 Jeep Compass. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Compass may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Jeep Compass battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Jeep Compass won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2017 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 2017 Compass. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2017 Jeep Compass.

Maintaining your Jeep Compass steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Jeep Compass steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Jeep Compass's steering system with 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. 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’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2017 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.

2017 Jeep Compass Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2017 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? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • 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.
  •  Why are my Jeep dashboard lights on? 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
