(31 reports)

The hood and rear hatch supports may fail causing the hood or hatch fall back down after being raised to the open position. Replacement of failed supports is recommended.

Hood and rear hatch would not stay up. Replaced all supports and it fixed the problem. The hood supports failed again 8 years later. The rear hatch supports still hold the rear hatch, but they use to raise the hatch when you unlocked it. The supports only opened the rear hatch for about 3 yrs. The rear hatch supports have been in for 9 yrs. -
