a week or so ago it got pretty nippy here in Florida and during that time I noticed how the hatch would not stay up/open. Then when it warmed up the hatch was normal.

Anybody ever have that happen (struts worn out)? Car is not that old, only has 44k miles.

My 08 had one worn out strut probably just 5 or 6 years into ownership. Tip: while replacing one, it’s worth replacing both, because chances are that the second one isn’t far behind on the failure path.
