Did you have the first fan replaced by a mechanic ? Did he say why the blades broke.
It's pretty rare for the blades to just break. I remember flex fans had some issues but OEM type blades did not.

Also check the motor mounts. A bad mount, or mounts, can sometimes allow the engine to shift/move enough to allow the blades to hit the radiator and/or cowling (this usually happens with it in gear tho).
