Service Your Jeep with the Pros at South Hills Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT®

You love your Jeep. You know how important it is to keep it fit for exploring greater Pittsburgh and our neck of the southwest Pennsylvania woods beyond.

But your SUV logs many miles over many years, down the highways outside of Canonsburg and Washington PA, among the city lights of Bethel Park, and off the beaten path near Mount Lebanon. That wear and tear can take its toll on any adventurer. You’ll eventually need a repair or two, but you can keep those to a minimum by sticking to regular service and maintenance on a factory schedule. What’s on a Jeep maintenance schedule? That depends on the kind of driving you do, your mileage, and how old your Jeep is, but you can generally follow this one, along with consulting the specifics in your owner’s manual.
