When does Jeep recommend steering and suspension service for 2017 Jeep Patriots?

Is It Time For 2017 Jeep Patriot Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2017 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 jolts, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2017 Jeep Patriot in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Jeep Patriot Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2017 Jeep Patriot suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2017 Jeep Patriot shock and strut replacement 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 regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2017 Jeep Patriot Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Jeep's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Jeep Patriot? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Jeep Patriot power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Patriot is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Jeep service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
