Default Defective Rack & Pinion Steering Gear

I'm new owner of my 1st Subaru. 2002 L-Sedan. 4 months, have 5K miles on it. When turning in either direction, groaning noise. Service Dept checked it out, had to top off the power steering fluid, but the real problem, rack gear is defective, they ordered the new part. They said it was okay to drive. All covered by warranty. Anyone have this same problem?
My Suby is great, can't wait till we get a good snow storm and try out the AWD.
