VST Failure - 2019 E-Tec 50 hp - Common Issue? Other Concerns?

My 2019 50 hp E-Tec died on me last week. Max of 25 hours, third trip out.  How common is a failure of VST on a brand new engine? other concerns perhaps with this issue?

Have your mechanic check VST pencil filter in return fitting.

Dealer has ordered complete new VST assembly...Seems odd for a brand new engine.

New VST worthless. Internal engine damage. New power block needed. 

 

> 20 hours...
