Anyone have any recommendations on a good mechanic in the Bay Area? I recently moved to the area and my passat has developed some engine problems. The VW Dealership diagnosed the problem as

1. Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire
2. Cylinder 1 misfire
3. Secondary air injection system incorrect flow detected.
4. Brake vacuum system mechanical malfunction.

Their recommendation was to replace the Mass-Air-Flow-Sensor, recirculation valve, and clamps.

However, I'd like to take my car to a private mechanic for a secondary opinion, and also to hopefully get a lower fee.

If anyone knows a trustworthy VW mechanic, please let me know!
