Power steering fluid leak - 2015 Buick Enclave

Had car in local shop for brakes and oil change. I thought I had a small oil leak but it turns out it was power steering. The mechanic topped off fluid but didnít think it was a big leak. A few days later Iím noticing more and more fluid on driveway and wheel was very hard to turn when pulling out of a parking spot, and was making a whining noise on the curves of off ramps. Fluid level was very low, I added fluid and everything seemed better. Taking car in today to same local shop. Should I expect to replace PS pump or could it be a leaky hose? Car has 119k miles.

It depends on what's leaking. A bad hose/fitting is the most likely culprit.

Impossible to diagnose an issue sight unseen, anything is possible!
