There’s nothing shameful about having a used car, let alone a Jeep Grand Cherokee. The stigma is gone, which means that you don’t have to be ashamed any more that you have a second generation vehicle. No matter if you have a new or an old Jeep Grand Cherokee, you need to take good care of it. Taking care of your car is just as important as taking care of your health. Neglecting your automobile will only result in problems and costly repairs. When you’re the proud owner of a Jeep Grand Cherokee, you should be doing the following things:
Checking the oil regularly
Edmunds claims that Jeep Grand Cherokee has a competitive engine. If you have looked under the hood, you know that they’re right. The Jeep Grand Cherokee has a god engine but if oil becomes contaminated, it won’t run seamlessly. What you need to do is check the engine oil level and condition as often as you can, preferably when you fill the gas tank. Check the oil with your ride’s dipstick. Park the automobile on ground level and open the hood. Pull out the long rod and clean it with a towel. Re-insert the dipstick and pull it back out again. If there’s oil between the two marks at the bottom of the rod, then you’re okay. If the oil is below the marks, add some more.
Changing the air filter
Changing the air filter helps both you and the Jeep Grand Cherokee breathe easier. What can dirty air possibly do? It can hurt acceleration and engine performance. While your beloved car won’t flame up, ti will collapse if you don’t change the air filter. You should change the air filter every 30,000 miles or so. There’s no one stopping you from replacing the air filter earlier than that. Inspect the air filter. If it’s in a bad condition, meaning that it’s of a dark color, there’s no doubt that it needs to go.
Cleaning inside and outside
Besides the fact that your Jeep Grand Cherokee will look better if you thoroughly clean it, it will perform better too. Most people limit to washing the exterior, thinking that only the finish counts. This is a huge mistake. Just as you wash the four-wheel drive you have to vacuum the dirt, clean the interior surfaces, and get rid of unnecessary items. Dirt and grime can destroy your SUV, so get cleaning.
