Default 207 Anti pollution system faulty

My story so far. Bought the car (207 1.4vti 16v verve) from new 2010. Without fail every year this fault comes up...Within the first 3 years I had the engine light and anti pollution fault message come up 4 times. Within warranty so fixed for free but it was the camshaft sensor that was faulty (the mechanic said there are two camshaft sensors on the engine and if the other went it wouldn't start) but it did do they knew which one it was. In the 4th year it happened again and it was the same sensor again. Asked if they knew of any underwriting problem with it for it to happen every year so far. Said they know of nothing. But it was out of warranty so diagnostic and new sensor put me back 130. Now the 5th year year it happened it came up with a timing chain fault. Was told that the would need to open the engine to test it and replace if need be. A bill could therefore be 7-800. I asked the guy if this was a common fault on a car so young (5years old and only 20k miles on the clock) said first time for him...then referred me to customer services...told them everything...next day got a phone call from garage they have upgraded some wiring and reset the fault code to see if that sorts it out. A yearish later(2days ago) the fault message has come on again. Have yet to book it into a garage for diagnostic but it's acting the same as it did last time it came up. So thinking it's going to be pointing towards the timing chain again.
Has anyone heard of anything like this before...any underwriting problem, or am I just the unlucky one. Any help would be appreciated.

think you will find loads of threads about chains and tensioners, best get the codes read on pp2000 or simular.
if its the chain 7-800 sounds to much to me...about double what others have paid.
it took a exhaust solenoid valve and a chain kit to sort my daughters, but has run great since i swapped out the chain(in my case it was a weak tensioner and broken guide rail)

Default Same issue

I have 60 plate 308 1.6i. I have exactly the same problem, though only started few months back. I was told at a garage that the chain is not calibrated and hence needs to open the engine and change it. They quote 900 to fix and full servicing it again as all fluids/ oils need replacing.
I am still looking into it and will update you.
