Hi,
I'm sorry to hear you are having such trouble.
Have your mechanics checked the drive belt idler? Usually when a belt gets hot and shreds it leaves little deposits on the idler which damage the new belt.
I would advise a new genuine belt with idler and tensioner.
Let me know how you get on.
Remember to accept my answer or I don't get paid for my advise.
Best regards
Peter
