I had this leak at 15K miles. I was able to identify it from the strange
odor and smoke(!) from under the hood. Apparently the fluid leaked onto the
engine, then heated up. Interestingly enough, I noticed it the day before
my scheduled maintenance so I had them look at it then.

Yep, same year and model as mine.
