What to Know About 2018 Jeep Compass Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Jeep Compass and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper 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. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Compass maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2018 Jeep Compass!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Jeep themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Compass's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2018 Jeep Compass problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Jeep Compass Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2018 Jeep Compass for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2018 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). 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2018 Jeep Compass's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2018 Compass. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2018 Jeep Compass? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Jeep Compass suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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 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. Components within your Jeep Compass's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Jeep Compass maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. 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’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 the place to go for 2018 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.

2018 Jeep Compass Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 Jeep Compass. Get answers to common Jeep Compass maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting 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 does my Jeep Compass need high mileage oil? 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my Jeep? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Jeep Compass to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
