Unhappy Transsion lines and power steering rack leaking oil

Purchased new a new 2009 Impala at Hare Chevrolet in Noblesville Indiana..Always serviced at local Hare Chevrolet Dealership. Unit has 54,831 miles and yesterday experienced on garage floor some red fluids..Took to dealer and got the bad news of the power steering rack leaking fluid and in need of replacement plus the Transmission cooler lines leaking and also require replacing...Quote was in excess of $1700.00 but clever service writer suggested he went to parts manager and got a better price for the required parts and a new out the door price would be $1085.21...We said repair after being advised that GM had no recalls for the defect and would not assist with the cost of repairs. Per representative this happens often and I am so upset that Chevrolet cant make a 50k car that will not require major repairs before the car travels at least 75k miles... An additional irritation and concern is the fact the Service Writer at no time suggested that the price change was a result the dealership using a Re-manufactured Power Steering Rack in contrast to new parts expected...

Anyone else who owns a 2009 Chevrolet Impala having these oil/fluid leak problems?
