My 2010 VW Eos has 44,000 miles...When I started my car Wednesday to go home from work the check engine light came on. Immediately took her to the local VW dealer, they checked her out and said that the Intake Manifold & Boost Tube needed replacing, this is covered under the power train warranty, which is great, but isn't it kind of early for this kind of replacement being necessary? I wonder what the cost would be if this was an out of pocket repair?

I am a girl and I know little to nothing about cars so I am just wondering if you have any knowledge about this issue? Anyone else have this problem?

If the manifold was replaced due to the flapper actuator going bad, that's not surprising at 44K miles. It would throw a CEL. I'd read about this issue before and I'm waiting for it to go bad on our '09. Fortunately it will be covered by the extended warranty. VW has redesigned the manifold, so once it's replaced the problem should be gone for good.

The manifold is around $200, and say another $300-400 for dealer labor.

I'm not sure what a boost tube is.
