159 JTDM Power Steering Pump

After 50,000 miles and 2 months out of warranty my power steering pump is deemed to be knackered. Cost to replace is 530 which I find unacceptable, this pump should last the life of the car, after all for 90% of it's life the car is going in a straight line. My local dealer has said that they will contact Alfa with a view to getting a good will discount but this "may take a couple of days because there's only one lady at Alfa and she is usually quite busy"! I'm more disapointed than angry, I love this car and I intend to have another once the new engines etc are on line however this sort of thing only adds to Alfa Romeo's reputation regards quality.

A few owners have had these replaced (me included - at 12000 miles), I would say its a known issue, so press for a contribution.
