Are our Citroen repair bills reasonable?

Dear all,

I bought a 2006 Citroen C3 two years ago (paid €5.6K, one owner, low mileage) and noticed recently that it was slipping out of gear when in first. Having had the garage look at it, they said the gearbox would need to be replaced fully (costing approx €1,000). It is also leaking coolant and needs the head gasket replaced. Total estimated bill approx €1,500-2,000. Is this reasonable? Are we right to be annoyed as the car has only 64,000km on it?

Thanks in advance
