Your Guide to 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Jeep Grand Cherokee to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Grand Cherokee 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. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Grand Cherokee maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Jeep, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Grand Cherokee running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Jeep Grand Cherokee Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with 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 Grand Cherokee. 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.

Could your 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee be ready for a new battery? 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 Grand Cherokee battery. 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 Grand Cherokee won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee engine. See Jeep's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2003 Grand Cherokee in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Jeep Grand Cherokee can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Jeep Grand Cherokee steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Jeep Grand Cherokee's steering and suspension system.
