    so your timing belt came apart..
    was it tensioned properly? was the timing belt new?
    was the car timed correctly?

    given that it ran in the other vehicle im assuming yes, but it never hurts to ask.

    was it a dealer timing belt? the cheap autozone ones save you 20 or 30 bucks but they break teeth on them or rip apart easy. theyre not durrable and i never trust them unless theyre from the dealer. head gaskets, timing belts and balancer shaft belts if required are parts that i only get from the dealer. unless i have a rich customer who wants all dealer parts. the volkswagon customers i get are like that.
