2007 Jeep Patriot Maintenance Schedule

When does Jeep recommend steering and suspension service for 2007 Jeep Patriots?

Is It Time For 2007 Jeep Patriot Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2007 Jeep Patriot, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Patriot jolts, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2007 Jeep Patriot in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Jeep Patriot’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Jeep Patriot Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2007 Jeep Patriot suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2007 Jeep Patriot’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Jeep Patriot shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2007 Jeep Patriot’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2007 Patriot Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Patriot's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Jeep Patriot get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Jeep intended.
  • Does my Jeep Patriot power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Patriot is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Jeep's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
