and yes, I did a search.


So, the question. Does anyone else have this problem? Is it a problem? And what can I do to fix it?

I've had my car for 3 months now. With every passing month, my hatch gets harder and harder to close. In the beginning, all I had to do was pull down on the handle. Second month, it was me pulling harder down, and it sometimes not closing. Third month, I have to pull down hard, catch the license plate area, and push it down for it to close.

I could easily guess it's the shocks or whatever they are, but what do I need to do to loosen the thing up? BTW, it opens fine, same speed, no problem. It's only when I close.

TIA.

Never had a problem closing it.....opening it in the snow is the only problem I've had.

Let a whole lotta snow build up on your hatch and then try opening it to get the scraper out, lol, closing it will never seem easier

Hmmm.....if I had enough snow on my car that it'd be hard to open the hatch, I'd probably be in the Twilight Zone.
Cant' say we get snow here in SoCal (at least not where I am, near the beach).

hehehe. Okay, glad I don't have THAT problem.
