Oh yeah, that's right. It's a 2013. Since the OP asked if it would be covered under warranty, I assumed there was a valid warranty covering it to begin with. The normal warranty is a year so I can only imagine it's well past expired.
Regarding the bolts, I mention it because I had a custom gas cap made that didn't quite seal well between the bolts and the design, even though it should have worked in theory. The bolts are what pressure the seal, so if they weren't torqued correctly, combined with a defective or bent gasket from reinstallation, that may be an issue.
In that case I'd say go aftermarket and forget about it. It would probably be easiest since sourcing the gasket is going to take a lot of unnecessary time and effort. Might as well save it before you start.
