I'd hardly call that a common problem.
Agreed. Mine will have to be done soon but not a major issue. Just did the upper June 8th. No problems. My car has 133k right now.
How can you tell if there is no leak.......

You have to wait until there is a leak. Mine has very very minor leaking going on so I know it needs to be done shortly.

well on my old non-sc car you could see the coolant leaking from the rear right part of the manifold and the coolant level dropping slowly.

on the supercharged version:
