I've come across only one shop in five that immediately owned up to a blown turbo being their fault and paying for it. All the others denied any culpability and blamed the failure on the turbo. In 2 of those cases the second turbo installed failed as well because the probelm was never fixed. The customer took the beating and paid for it all then drug the car to another shop.
I am sure this happens with all types of cars, you just don't hear about it. You have to know and trust your mechanic.
