Here’s Why 2016 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. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Grand Cherokee has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Grand Cherokee, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Jeep themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Grand Cherokee's life, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep Grand Cherokee

Bring your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Grand Cherokee’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2016 Grand Cherokee. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2016 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.

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement.
