Default Power Steering & Alternator Belt Gone Bad After About 10,000 miles?

Is this normal? I got it replaced about 10k miles ago.

Well I'm sure you know very well that's not NORMAL. That's not to say it doesn't happen by way of manufacturing defect or referred failure (something else breaks, causes more stuff to break) or what have you.

I'm not sure if I should blame the shop. But I have ran without PS fluid for half a mile. I quickly fixed the problem and refilled. PS pump was still good. Would that cause belt failure? I had high hopes for this shop and was even thinking of getting tuned there.

Yes no fluid will make it harder to turn the pump. And you are still blaming the shop?

Ultimatly its your responsibility to make sure your fluids are right

Not much short of a seized pulley is going to trash a belt within half a mile.

If previous belts had a history of squealing, your pulleys may be glazed.

Check that nothing is seized and tension is good. Then buy a Goodyear Gatorback belt.
