Citroen C4 Grand Picasso problems

I recently purchased a 2012 Citroen C4 Grand Picasso with 40,000 miles on clock. This has broken down three times in the five months I've had it. First two times were relating to a diesel injector, but the last time the water pump broke and damaged the timing belt. Would you expect these problems with such little mileage?

Presumably a diesel? Injector problems are quite common, but I would not have expected the waterpump to have failed at 40k miles and thrown off the timing belt. 60k miles plus, yes. Are you absolutely certain that the car had not been clocked before you bought it?
