Recommended Dealership for Recall (Bay Area)

After reading all of these horror stories on this forum regarding the airbag recall for the 5th gen 4runners (bulging dash, new rattles, squeaks, etc.) I am not confident in Toyota's techs doing this work. However, since it's a safety recall, I should have it done.

Has anyone in the Bay Area had this recall done? How was your experience? If anyone can recommend a certain dealership and/or even a preferred technician (if that's possible), please share. I am in San Francisco area, but do not mind making the drive to ensure this work is performed flawlessly (to avoid delays, poor workmanship, etc.)

I have had good experiences with Scott Murphy at Dublin Toyota. I'm not as enthusiastic about their parts department, but the service department is solid.

Unhappy

The only person I trust working on my rig is me. But I had no choice but to have my fuel pump changed out at a dealership under the recall. Completed at Vacaville Toyota. Mine was done back in August and I put over 2600 miles on it since. No issues so far. What pissed me off was that they left the rear seat softex cover undone where it hooks at the bottom of the cushion bracket near the heels of your feet as you sit. Pain in the ass to put back. I guess they have to remove the rear seat to access the fuel pump electrical connectors?
