Recommended garage near Santander?

Tomorrow I will be travelling from Comillas to the marina aire at Santander.

I'm looking for a garage that can check out my loss of power problems as mentioned on another thread.

Looking at TT it gives me 16 repair garages en route. None of them mentions Ford.

There's 1 very close to the aire, in the marina complex - Estación ITV vega baja - which would be very convenient.

Anyone know of them, or make any other recommendation on our route?

Many thanks.

Ah, looks like the ITV is like our MOT inspections. But maybe, being where it is, it may be for bigger vehicles n still do ordinary repairs?

I've just spoken with reception at the site here and she's recommended a garage about 3km from here.

He'll have a look at it at 4pm - after his siesta!

ITV is MoT Jean. I've never seen one that did repairs, the ones I've taken my car to are just test stations.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

I thought they might have been like the UK, apart from NI, where ordinary garages do the MOTs as well.
