I recently had a check engine light come on and the codes came up telling me that the diesel particulate filter and the o2 sensor need to be changed. Dealer says it's $510 to replace the o2 sensor. Seems high for a $50.00 part. Any one else have this problem?

I have no idea for the particular cost of such sensor, even less the labour cost for replacing all that. If you think that's too high, can't you just ask for another quote at a different dealer ?

Usually the O2 sensors are made by Bosch or similar and cost around 100 plus Euros. Dealers make a lot of money on those bits that needs replacing after 150 thousand km. Your  particulate filter is more of a problem and much more expensive I would say. 

I have replaced in another car four of those, two before the cat and two after, it is a V6 engine.

Thanks Lagaffe, How's your Cruze going? have you taken it to any iconic places? I am looking after my 2001 V6 Vectra as an everyday car driving to work and shops and on some weekends I take my black 2006 turbo Astra out for a spin. love that car, manual 6 speed and not much electronics interfering with driving.

Not covered under emissions warranty? More than likely the DPF is fine. The O2 sensor is easy to replace as long as it's not stuck and you have the right tool. Also be sure to have the dealer update the ECM with the latest updates.
