2008 Buick Lucerne Question: The Power Steering hose for my 2008 Buick Lucerne V8 is leaking.

Is this covered by a recall? I noticed that some sites say there was a recall and the hose would be replaced by the dealer at no charge.
My dealer can't find the NHTSA number or the recall number.
They want about $600 to replace the hose.

    Thanks for the prompt response.
    From what I've been able to find out, the problem occurred on 2006-2008 Buick Lucernes with V8 engines. As you state, there was no general recall since the engineering problem was fixed as soon as it was identified.
    However, some specific VIN numbered Buicks did have the hose replaced. The question I have is, did my Buick Lucerne miss the early notification that a fix was available?
    I've owned about 20 GM cars and have never had a power steering hose wear out. In fact, I'm wondering how much wear power steering fluid puts on a hose in 77,000 miles. Sounds like an abrasion problem to me. Again, thanks for your response.
