Does Your 2018 Jeep Compass Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2018 Jeep Compass, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Compass feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2018 Jeep Compass in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Compass suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Jeep Compass suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Jeep Compass

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 Jeep Compass’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Compass’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Jeep Compass shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2018 Jeep Compass suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2018 Compass Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Jeep's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Compass’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Jeep's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
