Rear hatch struts failed

Both the rear struts (shocks) that hold up the rear hatch door of my 2012 focus have failed.

They are both leaking oil. The result is a very heavy rear door that will not stay opened.

I've not seen this on a modern car before.

Anyone else had this issue. I guess they won't be too difficult / expensive to replace ..... but still, not the best quality.
