when the hatch struts failed on our 9-5 wagon this winter, 2x4 chopped at half length works perfectly! Mine was pressure treated too so, it will stand up to water, salt, and slush, and probably outlast the car. Don't need Orio's warranty!
I have already ordered new struts, but I'm waiting for the temperature outside to rise enough that I don't risk cracking the many plastic trim pieces that must be removed in the process!
