Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2016 Jeep Patriot

How Does Jeep Patriot Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Jeep Patriot’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. During the service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as Jeep intended. When the system is aligned to Jeep specifications, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Bring your 2016 Jeep Patriot in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Jeep. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When Should I Get Jeep Patriot Wheel Alignment?

It's a good idea to have your Jeep Patriot alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2016 Jeep Patriot: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Patriot if your wheel alignment needs attention.

How Much Does an Alignment for Jeep Patriot Cost?

Jeep Patriot wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs.
