I was just informed my 2013 Q5 needs new turbo boost, engine light had come on. 2013 model - 36,000 miles. Anyone else with this issue?

    I doubt that the turbo has gone bad that quickly unless it failed due to the open recall for the coolant pump. Heat is the bane of all turbos by 600+ degree exhaust temps and spinning well over 10000 rpm. Not getting cooled properly will dramatically shorten it’s life.
