HOW is it failing? Breaking? Did you have a new water pump installed at
the first change? I replaced WP on my probe and it was made with one of
the ribs situated so as to shred timing bely, but the tech should have seen
that... otherwise bad tensioner pulley or not enough tension

Re: Timing belt

I assume that the first time you needed a timing belt. The second time
was a warranty repair. That's one failed repair by my count. Things
happen. That's what the warranty is for. Why not give the shop a chance
rather than hyperventilating? And who says your mechanic is not honest?
They are honoring the warranty, right?. Perhaps the part was defective.
You don't provide enough information to suggest anything too unusual
here.

How about some details? If you don't provide any more details in court than
you have here you'll lose for sure. A handful of parts won't win the case
for you.
