Complaint - Steering

PULLING OUT OF DRIVEWAY STEERING WAS HARD PULLED BACK IN AND NOTICED FLUID ON THE PAVEMENT WHICH ENDED UP BEING POWER STEERING FLUID. INSPECTED UNDER THE HOOD AND FOUND THE LEAK WAS COMING FROM THE RETURN HOSE FROM THE POWER STEERING PUMP. TOOK TO LOCAL CHEVROLET DEALER AND IT WAS FIXED. AFTER I HAD MY CAR BACK FOR 6 DAYS THE SAME HOSE BLEW A HOLE IN IT IN A DIFFERENT SPOT. TOOK TO THE DEALER TWO DAYS AGO AND THEY REPLACED IT AGAIN PICKING UP TOMORROW. I CONSTANTLY HEAR ABOUT OTHER HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM ON CHEVY'S MAINLY IMPALAS' AND IT SEEMS TO BE PRIMARILY THE 2006 MODEL. THIS IS RIDICULOUS THAT THERE IS NO RECALL ON THIS. I'VE CALLED GM AND THEY ARE NO HELP AT ALL AND SEEM TO JUST IGNORE THIS ONGOING PROBLEM. SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE ABOUT THIS BEFORE SOMEONE IS SERIOUSLY HURT IN AN ACCIDENT DUE TO THE LOSS OF POWER STEERING.
