Your Guide to 2017 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. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Grand Cherokee, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Jeep themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Grand Cherokee running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee problems in the future.

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

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. 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 2017 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 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2017 Grand Cherokee. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Jeep Grand Cherokee can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Jeep Grand Cherokee's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Jeep Grand Cherokee maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Jeep Grand Cherokee cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Jeep Grand Cherokee radiator? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.
