Here’s Why 2013 Jeep Patriot Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Jeep Patriot to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Patriot could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Patriot, 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 2013 Jeep Patriot!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Jeep, your vehicle manufacturer. 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, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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 Patriot's life, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2013 Jeep Patriot problems later.

Overview of Essential Jeep Patriot Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2013 Jeep Patriot and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Patriot's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2013 Jeep Patriot be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Jeep Patriot 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 Patriot won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2013 Jeep Patriot's engine run smoother. See Jeep's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2013 Patriot in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2013 Jeep Patriot.

Maintaining your Jeep Patriot steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Jeep Patriot steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Jeep Patriot's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Jeep Patriot services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Jeep Patriot engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Jeep Patriot radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too.
