hatch struts

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.

I just replaced my 451's hatch struts for $29 from Amazon. The originals lasted almost a decade. It is so nice not to get bonked on the head now!
