Questions About 2017 Jeep Patriot’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Jeep? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Jeep Patriot? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your Patriot towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Patriot's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2017 Patriot’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Jeep. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
