It sounds to me like you've got a decent garage. So many of these places can't turn down work and end up over committing themselves and guess who ends up paying the price. As for the engine I always thought I'd replace mine with a 1.9 but after 360k km I went for a rebuilt 1.6. It may not be the fastest but it's averaging 40 mpg and it gets mee there. If I wanted to get somewhere quick I wouldn't be in a Brick. Anyway, let's hope it doesn't come to that, its not a given.

Sounds like you're very stoical, me thinks you'll be getting to Portugal come what.

Mine overheated on the trip home, turned out to be due to slipping belt which was due to slipping bolt that puts tension on via the alternator. Survived though, the 1.6 is a tough old bugger. Might be ok
