car   Hatchback/liftgate Hinge problem 2
Failure Date: 05/01/2010

2006 Honda Odyssey ex-l liftgate struts not working. I had the hatch door open & it suddenly shut hard on it's own. My daughter and I were getting groceries from the van at the time. Until this time, there was no indication that the parts were wearing. I just had the van in a Honda dealership on 4/21 for repairs that included having them check out why the cargo area was filled with water. I will order replacement parts & install.
