Is It Time For 2013 Jeep Patriot Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2013 Jeep Patriot, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Patriot bounces, 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 2013 Jeep Patriot in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Jeep Patriot Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2013 Jeep Patriot’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 2013 Jeep Patriot shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Jeep Patriot shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Patriot’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2013 Patriot Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Jeep's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Jeep Patriot? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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.
  • When does Jeep Patriot power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Jeep service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
