Spring is around the corner, which means rolling down the windows or removing the doors and top of your 2022 Jeep® vehicle. But before you hit the road, you need to follow a routine maintenance schedule and checklist, and Jeep service from our service center. Here’s an easy-to-follow maintenance checklist for your new or pre-owned Jeep vehicle.
How Important is Vehicle Maintenance?
The best thing any driver can do to keep their vehicle working properly and lasting longer is by keeping up with basic vehicle maintenance. By keeping your oil and other fluids clean and full, checking in on your brakes, and a few other tasks, you can ensure that you get the most life and mileage out of your Jeep vehicle.
Jeep Vehicle Maintenance Checklist
- Fluids: an oil change and fluid check is one of the most important tasks on any maintenance checklist. Fresh oil keeps your engine functioning smoothly, reducing friction, heat, and other wear. The same thing goes with your transmission fluid, coolant, and brake fluid; keeping all these fresh and full will ensure you get the most mileage out of your Jeep vehicle.
- Tire Rotation: every 3,000-5,000 miles, you should have your tires rotated. This ensures that all four tires wear evenly, preventing premature damage or a blowout while you’re on the road. It’s also easy to add this service whenever you get your routine oil change.
- Brake Inspection: with all the stop-and-go driving that our vehicles endure, it’s critical to have your brakes inspected regularly. Components like brake pads, shoes, drums, and rotors grind and wear with every stop; regular brake inspections ensure that every time you hit the brake, you come to a complete and safe stop.
- Electric System and Lamps: if your battery isn’t functioning properly, it can keep you from even starting your Jeep vehicle. Although a car battery is usually good for three to five years, it may still encounter issues. While you’re getting your battery inspected, ask our trained professionals to double-check your headlights and rear lamps, as well.
