Independently owned and operated, Arenas Auto Service boosts engine performance with high-quality car-care services. Using synthetic oil, Arenas Auto's expert car crusaders replenish vehicular fluids and swap out filthy filters. Compared with standard oil, synthetic oil provides better engine lubrication and extended drain intervals, so drivers can log more miles before their next change. Roadsters are also treated to a tire rotation to opt out of uneven wear and prevent rubber rivalries over which wheels get to go first. Though Arenas Auto Service specializes in speedy work, customers unable to break away from their busy schedules can get free shuttle service from the shop to any location within a 5-mile radius.
