The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a great Jeep. However, it does need regular maintenance. Just like we go in for our yearly physical, your vehicle will also need routine yearly maintenance to keep running its best.

Keeping all the parts in good working order ensures that the Jeep will stay reliable and last a long time.

Where to Go

You should find an auto shop or dealership that you can completely trust. At Liberty Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT, we have highly trained mechanics and auto workers ready to inspect your car. If you live in the areas of Rapid City, Belle Fourche, or Sioux Falls, call us to schedule a maintenance appointment. We even offer great deals and coupons for certain parts and services accessible on our website.  Regular car inspections can help prevent car breakdowns and major costs later.

Maintenance Schedule

Most maintenance schedules depend on the car's mileage. If you use your Jeep Grand Cherokee to tow frequently or ride off road, you should inspect some parts more often. Most Jeeps come with an oil indicator feature where a light will indicate if you need to change your oil. These are the guidelines for your Jeep Grand Cherokee maintenance schedule:  

  • 8000 miles- Change your oil and oil filter.  This should be done at every 8000-mile interval. Inspect your tires for wear and tear.
  • 1600 miles- Rotate your tires even if they look fine. Inspect the exhaust system.
  • 2400 miles- Inspect the brakes, brake linings, CV joints, belts and hoses. Inspect the front and rear axle fluids are and replace if needed.
  • 3200 miles- Replace the spark plugs, air cleaner filter and air conditioning filter. Rotate your tires again. Check the brakes.
  • 40000 miles- Inspect the brakes, belts and hoses again. Also inspect the suspension and motor mounts. 
  • 4800 miles- Repeat the above inspections. Inspect the front suspension, tie rod ends, and boot seals for cracks, leaks and looseness and replace if needed.
  • 72000 miles- Change the engine filters. Replace the brakes, belts, and hoses if there is some wear and tear.
  • 100000-120000 miles- The auto transmission fluid, engine coolant, differential fluid, timing belt and spark plugs all need to be replaced.  If there's wear and tear, completely replace the tires, drive belts, brake linings, engine mount and suspension. Change the power transfer unit and the rear drive assembly fluid.
  • 140000 miles- Inspect CV joints, brakes and exhaust system.  Inspect the front and rear axle fluids again and change if needed.


There could be slight variations on the maintenance schedule depending on the year of your Jeep Grand Cherokee. Check your owner's manual to find the right maintenance schedule. Mopar's website is another great resource on car inspections and maintenance.
