Who did the pre inspections? Did they offer a cost to repair? Those fault codes are not OBDIi codes which are 4 digit one, so I can't comment.

They did not offer a repair estimate but suggested the codes could indicate future problems. After some research one of the codes pointed towards a tire pressure monitor issue. The repair shop was highly recommended and reputable, but without much experience with VWs. I plan to have a second optinion from a VW/Audi shop. It just seems odd it would have enigine and transmission problems at 45K miles.
