When you say leaking, do you mean you see puddles on the ground, or it just keeps needing to be filled? And find another mechanic, any mechanic that just blows you off by saying he can't find the leak is either incompetent or too busy to want your business, He can pressurize the cooling system with the car cold and just LOOK. Common? That I don't know, probably not

It might be an internal leak from a bad head gasket. Is it running hot?

Yes I sometimes find puddles in the driveway, I did check the oil and its fine and its not running hot.

Then it needs to be pressure tested. A mechanic can put a pump on the radiator cap and pressurize it with air and and simply look
