Check engine light came on, took it to Auto zone. They told me no code threw at first but then were able to give me this code P2080 - Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensor Circuit Range/Performance Bank 1 Sensor 1. This is a 2012 Touareg TDI, does anyone know if this is covered under the extended warranty?

Should be covered under the emissions warranty. Take it in and get it fixed.

If you're getting that recurring light, I'm wondering how many miles are on it.. and I'm thinking you're probably getting close to a full DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter). The DPF will regen (cook out the soot) but it can't get all of it/run forever.
Mine clogged up around 150k miles, and I was getting this code often. I decided to go for the delete and tune rather than spend thousands replacing the DPF, but then again, I live in a state without emissions and I had no warranty....

I would, I have mine scheduled for the same thing. My light won't go out though. I want them to check my DPF as well when I take it in.
