1999 ml320 steering hydraulic power problem

Hi. I am new to site. Need help. 1999 ml320 was recalled in 2008 for steering hydraulic power assist: hose, piping, and connections. Since recall, my daughter, who drives the truck, has repeatedly taken it to mb technician in Greensboro, NC to add power steering fluid. She said when the fluid gets low, truck makes a grinding sound.Several days ago, she cranked up truck, and the grinding sound was very loud. I advised her not to drive it. IS there anyone else who has had similar problems; and if so, what was the approximate cost for repairs? PS: Daughter has had fluid added twice this year. The warranty expired 6/18/2009.
