Why would a head gasket blow on a three year car?

I had my Lexus GS300 timing belt replaced by dealer at 110K miles including a new head gasket. After three years at 145K the head gasket was blown, and it's obviously the dealer didn't do a good job to install and torqued it properly. Defective head. Never torqued properly at installation. Ran the car for a long period of time with little or no coolant/oil.

Let the engine overheat will normally blow the head gasket.

No, head gaskets usually blow because the engine overheated or there was a defect in the gasket or head during production.

Anytime the engine overheats you have the possibility of blowing the head gasket.

most probable cause would be over heating
