Life span of auto parts

What is the REAL life span of auto spare parts compared to what the manufacturer or the auto mechanic tells you? Is there some sort of graph showing risk of failure of parts versus time out there? Specifically I am interested in Peugeot cambelt life spans. How dead am I if it fails?

(Is it something about my psychology that whenever I talk to a mechanic anywhere in the world, I feel like they are lying to my face and laughing about it later? )
Ok so my Peugeot 206 cambelt apparently is 7 years old and the manufacturer recommends replacement after 4 years. What I can't get over is how my service bill pften goes from $500 to $900 in the space of an hour. Is it something about my face?
