Here’s Why 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Jeep Grand Cherokee, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, 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. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2012 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Grand Cherokee perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep Grand Cherokee

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee 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 Grand Cherokee'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 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Grand Cherokee may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Jeep Grand Cherokee 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. 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee's engine run smoother. To learn how often Jeep recommends you have the oil changed in your 2012 Grand Cherokee, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2012 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. 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 Grand Cherokee 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. 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.

If you skip recommended Jeep Grand Cherokee services, 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 Grand Cherokee’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Jeep Grand Cherokee radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too.
