Engine light came on intermittently and then continuously. Dealer said it was showing error for exhause flap controller/motor and was a $600 plus repair. Car has 44k miles. Is exhaust flap a emissions part covered by 80k warranty required by NTHSA.

If you are not getting satisfaction from your local VW dealer call VW North America's customer service toll free number and complain loudly to them and see if they will help, it sounds reasonable at such low mileage this should be covered.

I agree with Pat. they may tell you the only exhaust coverage is the cat converter. even with that. you have a 5 yr 50k on the federal part with all the emission control parts.
