Suspension Service & Repair for 2016 Jeep Patriot

2016 Jeep Patriot Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2016 Jeep Patriot suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2016 Jeep Patriot Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2016 Jeep Patriot, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Patriot bounces, pulls 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 2016 Jeep Patriot in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Patriot suspension system needs repair, 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 parts of your Jeep Patriot suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Jeep Patriot Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2016 Jeep Patriot’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Patriot’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, 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 routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2016 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 let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Jeep Patriot? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Jeep intended.
  • When should I have my Jeep Patriot power steering fluid checked? 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 optimally.
