2012 Jeep Patriot Maintenance and Service Schedule

Not sure when or if your Jeep Patriot’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2012 Jeep Patriot Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2012 Jeep Patriot, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Patriot feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2012 Jeep Patriot in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Patriot steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Jeep Patriot

Your 2012 Jeep Patriot’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2012 Jeep Patriot shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Jeep Patriot shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 Jeep Patriot’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 Patriot Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Jeep's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Jeep Patriot? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Jeep Patriot power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Patriot’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Jeep's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
