1200 miles Turbo burnt out

So while cruising home from Vermont I noticed a weird metal burning smell and had pulled over to check oil and fluids. everything was normal,continued driving and once I got back into nj I noticed it had gotten worse, took it to dealer today by my mothers house and turns out the turbo is shot. Im kinda confused cause i really dont boost the car at all and I babby it to get decent millage and I run 93octane only. I hope this was just a factory fluke ad not something to be a normal occurrence on these cars.

As the old saying goes, you have to pay to play.
