Don't think I've ever heard of a chain breaking...you may just be unlucky with this, possibly a faulty chain. You would normally get rattling if the chain or guides were wearing badly. Certainly shouldn't be an issue on a vehicle with low miles.

When this happened to me the service advisor slipped and said it happens alot! They are supposed to be checking the chain on the 60,000 mile check up but as I learnwd the hard way..u have to ask for it!

Regular oil changes are important. It's a lot cheaper to change oil than to buy an engine for £5000. I nearly always change my oil twice a year regardless of mileage. Stretched chains normally cause poor running due to timing issues and should normally be noticed before the engine expires.
