You must live in a large community or ride the brakes a lot. The brakes should last longer that 28000 miles and the rotors should be good for from 70 to 100k or more. No rotors do not have to be replaced in pairs, but they generally were out uniformly and thus are often replaced in pairs because of that. Many of the smaller cars can have the rotors turned and still be within tolerance, but unless they are treated with a brake lube application or they are not riden too hard they will warp quicker and thus I would skip the turning and replace with new. Now whether VW will replace the other front one is not my say, but in my book they should.
