The timing chain can fail because of poor maintenance , insufficient oil changes. Lots of long periods sitting with dry starts. Dry starts are murder on engine internals.
Take a picture of it and post it. Never have seen one unless it was a defective part. Most likely you got shafted by you mechanic. My 3800 has 294000.00 miles on it.
Timing belt do before 60000 miles very important.
It has a timing chain that should last the life of the engine.

A timing chain should last the life of the engine. Timing chains are INSIDE the engine and as such are constantly oiled. By the time the timing chain and/or tensioning mechanism is worn out, it's about time to rebuild the engine.
Yes, it uses an internal timing "CHAIN", not a belt. The timing chain should last until the engine needs to be rebuilt.
A timing chain normally will last as long as the engine. Signs of a failing timing chain are chain noise and or engine that continues to jump time.
No, this engine has a timing belt.
