What to Know About 2012 Jeep Wrangler Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Jeep Wrangler to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Wrangler could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Wrangler maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2012 Jeep Wrangler!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Jeep themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Wrangler perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2012 Jeep Wrangler problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep Wrangler

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2012 Jeep Wrangler for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Wrangler. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2012 Jeep Wrangler. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Jeep Wrangler battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Jeep Wrangler won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2012 Jeep Wrangler's engine run smoother. To learn how often Jeep recommends you have the oil changed in your 2012 Wrangler, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2012 Jeep Wrangler.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Jeep Wrangler can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Jeep Wrangler steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Jeep Wrangler's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Jeep Wrangler maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Jeep Wrangler’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Jeep Wrangler radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2012 Jeep Wrangler maintenance.

Questions About 2012 Jeep Wrangler Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2012 Jeep Wrangler. Get answers to common Jeep Wrangler maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Jeep Wrangler? 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 switch my Jeep Wrangler to high mileage oil? If your Jeep Wrangler has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  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 Wrangler, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
