Question New XC90 owner slightly Worried

Hello All
Just purchased a 2004 XC90 2.4 D5 SE Diesel.
Looking through past invoices etc,noticed that a new cylinder head,with ancilliaries had been fitted because of timing belt failure in August 2014.
Then again in December 20`5 due to an auxilliary belt failure the timing was again disturbed resulting in another 2K+ bill. These events took place at 99k miles and 116Kmiles respectively.
Could this have been due to poor quality belts being used?--is there any mod to be done/ Orcan I expect to shell out every 17k mies or so.

Just wondered if any other members had experienced this problem and/or what precautions I might take.

Grateful for any suggestions.

Regards Pete

Hello Pete,
You are currently posting in the "Wants" subforum of the new XC90 forum.

You might have a better chance of a suitable reply if you repost in the forum for the Mk1 XC90 -

All the best.
