Maintaining Your Mid Rivers Jeep Compass.

Perhaps you don't have the space to accommodate a full-size Jeep Grand Cherokee, but you still want the toughness that comes with Jeep Ownership. That's why you have selected your Jeep Compass. An icon in the making, it is a scaled-down version that offers similar capabilities as its big brother, just with a smaller footprint. Think of it as a case of "Honey, I shrunk the Jeep Grand Cherokee." Properly maintained, your Jeep Compass will provide years, not to mention, miles of service on the road ahead. And the key here is proper maintenance. There is no getting around it. Your Mid Rivers Chrysler Dodge Jeep and Ram service department stands ready to assist with your Jeep's needs.

In order to enhance your Jeep Compass ownership experience Mid Rivers CDJR has prepared this checklist that details the needs for the proper care and feeding of your new vehicle. Your Mid Rivers Jeep Compass is equipped with a 2.4-liter Multi-Air inline four-cylinder engine producing 180 horsepower. It can be ordered with a choice of 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission.

Air Filters: Your Jeep Compass's 2.4-liter Multi Air Engine needs to breathe freely and operate more efficiently. That's where a Mopar-approved air filter comes in. These filters are engineered to block the flow of debris and particles into the actual engine. They typically need replacement approximately every 50,000 miles or so. If used more frequently, or in dusty, desert-like surroundings, you may need to increase the frequency to every 25,000 miles. Your  Service Advisor can supply you with the proper filter for many more miles of trouble-free driving.

Oil and Filters: Your Mid Rivers Jeep Compass's precision-built Multi-Air engine will provide years of smooth service. Engineered to run well with both conventional and synthetic oil, and a fresh oil filter, it should be looked after carefully and on a fairly regular schedule. The Mid Rivers service technicians recommend a change as outlined by the Oil Change Indicator System icon on your dashboard. If the system senses you drive long, strenuous distance, it may indicate a change that is due sooner--in as few as 4,000 miles. Please check your Mid Rivers Jeep Compass Owner's Manual or consult with your Service Advisor.

Gimme a Brake: Responsible for providing your Jeep Compass with adequate stopping power, Brake Pads and Brake Rotors are some of the most important pieces of gear on your vehicle. Sadly, they won't last forever. They are limited-lifetime items that will need replacement, even under normal usage conditions. Their lifespan depends on your driving style, and how hard you may push your Mid Rivers Compass. Brake pads and rotors should be inspected every time you are in for an oil change. This is a good practice that will help keep your Jeep Compass as safe and reliable as it was the day it rode off the assembly line. Your Mid Rivers Chrysler Jeep Dodge and Ram Service Advisor will be happy to examine them for you.

Transmission Fluid change: Your Mid Rivers Jeep Compass is equipped with a sealed six-speed manual or sealed six-speed automatic transmission, meaning that other than making sure you maintain the proper level of transmission fluid, there is virtually nothing you need to do with it until you hit approximately 100,000 miles. At that point, your Service Advisor will suggest you bring it in for a transmission fluid drain and refill service. Following these tips will insure you have your Jeep Compass for many years and miles down the road.



Wipe those Windshields: No one actually likes smudged glasses, just the same way no one likes a dirty windshield. You can have your Jeep Compass gleaming during its daily outings with a new, fresh set of Mopar-approved wiper blades. Combining the new wiper blades with a reservoir full of windshield wiper fluid will have you singing, with apologies to the song's composer, Johnny Nash, "I can see clearly now," Hey, we can't sing either. APro Tip: If your wipers are leaving spots, smears and streaks on the windshield, it's time to replace them. Your Mid Rivers Chrysler Dodge Jeep and Ram Service department stocks a full lineup of Mopar-approved Wiper Blades made specifically for your Jeep.



Rotate Those Tires: Rotation is the key way to prevent premature tire wear from ruining those expensive tires at all four corners of your Mid Rivers Jeep Compass. Such wear on the front tires alone is a clue that they should be rotated immediately. Your CDJR service professionals will likely recommend that you rotate your tires to coincide with your oil change schedule to help equalize tire wear at all four corners of your Jeep Compass. A Napleton Pro Tip: For longest life and equal wear, tires should always be rotated at the same time as every oil change, and always before they are aligned.




Other Crucial Lubricants: Your Mid Rivers service department can inspect your Jeep Compass's fluids, including transmission, steering, coolant, brake, oil and even wiper fluid, to make sure you won't be caught high and dry in the middle of that big cross-country road trip that you planned for a year or more. The same for that cross-town jaunt to the local supermarket for one of those favorite Ultimate Sub Sandwich. Stop in at Mid Rivers to have them topped-off by you Service Technician today. Call for more information and an appointment, today.

Spark Plugs: Spark Plugs are typically the longest lasting expendable on your Jeep Compass, hanging on for upwards of 100,000 miles. Occasionally one might go bad, in which case your  Mid Rivers Service department stands at the ready to replace them as needed. Jeep says to change them every 100,000 miles or so. Still, things can occasionally go south, requiring a replacement set before that. Your Mid Rivers Jeep service department agrees! Check your Compass owner's manual for more extensive details.



Wheel Alignment: When you find your Jeep Compass pulling left or right as you are going down a relatively straight street, that's a sign that you Compass is in need of an all-wheel-alignment. Properly inflated and aligned, your Compass will keep on the straight and narrow while getting you the longest life possible from your tires. Speed bumps and potholes never did anyone any favors, so it's quite possible that even a slight meeting can rack things up. Your  Mid Rivers CDJR service advisor can inspect their condition and arrange for future service. A Napleton Pro Tip: Always balance and rotate your tires before performing an all-wheel-alignment in an effort to maintain even tire wear all the way around.

Finally: As always, your Jeep Compass owner's manual offers more information on the care and operation schedule of your new Jeep vehicle. Additionally, the service department and advisors at  Mid Rivers Jeep Chrysler, Dodge, and Ram are prepared for virtually all of your Jeep Compass's needs. Call for more information today.
