2007 Pontiac G6 Fuse Box short?

My car gave me a message: "engine power reduced" and then stalled. The third time it did that within 12 minutes (in the middle of morning traffic) I had it towed to my dealership where I was told that it was a short in the fuse box. When they quoted me a price of over $600 I questioned why a two year old car would have a short in the fuse box (not the fuses that had the short). I was advised that it's a defect in the part and they did not know why it shorted out. What is the fuse box? Why would it short out all of a sudden? And if it was a defect in the part, shouldn't the dealership or the factory replace that free of charge to the consumer?

I have never heard of a fuse block shorting out unless there is water that gets into it and corrodes things. There is the possibility that it may have had some internal relays that quit working which I have seen before, but if that was the case they should have said that instead of a short in it. I think you should keep after GM. Besides what is the design of a fuse? To blow and protect the circuit. SO what fuses were blown?
Was this
