Maintenance for Your 2017 Jeep Patriot

What is the maintenance schedule for the 2017 Jeep Patriot?

Here’s Why 2017 Jeep Patriot Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Jeep Patriot, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Patriot has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Patriot maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2017 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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Patriot perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2017 Jeep Patriot problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Jeep Patriot Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2017 Jeep Patriot to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2017 Jeep Patriot? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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 be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2017 Jeep Patriot's engine run smoother. See Jeep's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2017 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2017 Jeep Patriot.

Maintaining your Jeep Patriot steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Jeep Patriot steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Jeep Patriot's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Jeep Patriot maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Jeep Patriot cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Jeep Patriot? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2017 Jeep Patriot maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

  • When should I have Jeep Patriot alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Jeep Patriot? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Jeep Patriot engines.
  •  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
