Questions About 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Jeep? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Jeep? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Grand Cherokee’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Grand Cherokee is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Grand Cherokee's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2016 Grand Cherokee’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Jeep's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
