Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2016 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Patriot perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2016 Jeep Patriot problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Jeep Patriot Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Jeep Patriot for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Patriot’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2016 Jeep Patriot? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Patriot may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Jeep Patriot battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Patriot stranded. Your Jeep Patriot could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2016 Jeep Patriot's engine run smoother. See Jeep's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2016 Patriot in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2016 Jeep Patriot?
