Best dealership in the South bay area?

Bay area owners, when its that time of the year to take your car in for its routine tune up, where do you take it ?

I bought my CPO car about a year ago and now the maintenance is due. Actually, its early, 2K miles early, but I'm seeing some oil leaks and smelling burning smell, so I figure I better take her in.

Independent shop, I would trust Marvin with the Rennshop however, since its CPO, I figure the smarter bet would be to take it to the dealership. Any problems and its less hassle to pinpoint WHO messed what up ?

Anyways, yelp reviews seems to favor Carlson & Stevens Creek over Fremont. What do you guys think ?

I like the guys at Carlson. I've only been there for minor things, but they were very helpful.

I got a friend who is a mechanic at sonnen in mill valley and they are really nice there. carlsen is also really good. Stevens Creek dealers are always shady.
