What to Know About 2014 Jeep Patriot Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Jeep Patriot, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Patriot. 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 Patriot, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2014 Jeep Patriot!

Jeep knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Patriot running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2014 Jeep Patriot problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep Patriot

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2014 Jeep Patriot and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Patriot. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2014 Jeep Patriot. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Jeep Patriot battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Patriot stranded. 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2014 Jeep Patriot running newer, longer. See Jeep's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2014 Patriot in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2014 Jeep Patriot? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Jeep Patriot can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Jeep Patriot 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 Patriot's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Jeep Patriot maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Jeep Patriot’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Jeep Patriot? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2014 Jeep Patriot maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Jeep Patriot? You know your Jeep Patriot better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Jeep Patriot to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Jeep Patriot? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  Why are my Jeep dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Jeep Patriot, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
