When To Get 2014 Jeep Patriot Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2014 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 an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2014 Jeep Patriot in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Jeep Patriot suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Jeep Patriot Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2014 Jeep Patriot’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 2014 Jeep Patriot shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side 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 2014 Jeep Patriot’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2014 Patriot Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Patriot's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire 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 Patriot is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Jeep's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
