Default Best SoCal dealer for service under warranty?

Dealers don't usually have a reputation for providing the best service, but I was curious if anyone has a recommendation on places with better techs or techs who are more used to working on Corvettes? Just something I'd like to keep in mind for any service needs that comes up during the warranty period like the 500mi break in oil change on Z06s.

SoCal is a large area! You looking for LA dealers only?

I'ld love to know this in Ventura county area. Don't trust Silverstar in Thousand Oaks. They didn't deliver brake rotor protectors with car and couldn't even figure out how to get them AFTER I gave them GM part number. Had to get them myself and get reimbursed. That total process was about 4 months long.

American Heritage Performance is great but a little far.

If its just oil changes, why not do it yourself? Not that bad.... Iíll help if you want but am not that close - Iím by lax.

Not necessarily, I'm on the west side near Mar Vista/Venice/Marina but willing to travel a bit if it would make a difference. I know American Heritage is a good shop here where I might go for out of warranty stuff, but figured I'd take advantage of the free Chevy service while I can.

Thanks! I actually have race ramps so I'll do them myself eventually, but for stuff that Chevy covers (even outside of oil changes, should something goes wrong under warranty) I figured it made sense to take advantage of the free service from the dealer.

Rydell is the only one around LA then again the dealer experience is always bad. American heritage can also do warranty work if you have the right warranty.

And another vote for Rydell. I like my service advisor, David Joslyn. Rydell's master Corvette tech is Donny Yorke and you can ask David if your particular job is one that Donny would do.
