2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Jeep's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Jeep tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Grand Cherokee towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Grand Cherokee's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Jeep Grand Cherokee transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Jeep. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
