Default Mechanic recommendation for '03 Vue in Orange County CA

I have an oil leak of unknown origin, small but slowly getting worse. Not in a position to DIY.

I have been taking my Vue to a GM dealership for regular maintenance but they've tried my last nerve.

Anyone have a recommendation in Orange County?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Motor is made by opel of Germany. Any foreign shop could change the valve cover gaskets. Though I bet only 2% of mechanics have ever worked on one. Remove intake plenum, change gaskets. Use good silicone gaskets. Not cheap $20 “rubber” Chinese ones. I saw a vue at junkyard with radiator/front end gone. The motor was COVERED in oil. Ugh.
