    Hood keeps opening randomly!

    I have a 2011 wrx sedan, this morning I noticed that the hood was popped when I got to work, this is the second time it happened to me. I have no idea how it just randomly gets popped anyone else have this problem?

    The hood release might be stuck slightly. Try moving the hood release/latch around with your hand to see if it has good play. It may need to be lubricated. Also pull the hood release in your cabin and have someone watch the latch/release under your hood to see if it has full play. Last thing you want it for that thing to fly open when you are cruising down the interstate!
