I know of people that had problems with is.
Just a note on this. You are allowed to keep your UK registered car for six months while living in Portugal, before having to either matriculate it onto Portuguese plates or remove it from the country.
Many people do use their UK cars when they first move here as this gives them time to settle in, before making a decision as to whether to purchase a Portuguese car or start the matriculation process.
