Oh no. I am officially that person who complains. It really happened. I just want it fixed. The insurance company 6 weeks later is now saying they may total it out. Key word is may. So I am still in limbo. I bought the car to be my retirement car because I know what a great reliable car it is. Its only 7 years old with 45K miles. I still believe in Subaru. The "Subaru fix this" came from reading the headline of this thread, Engine-hood latch disengaging? It lead me to think this may be an issue. If there is a latch issue that some have experienced, the latch should be fixed. I guess I was wrong according to your responses. I am frustrated because all the service is done at the dealership. If there was an issue or possible issue such as wear, I feel they should have told me. I know I should be proactive and check these things on the car myself, but sadly I wouldn't know where to start. I don't even have a reason to open the hood. I rely on the mechanics. I guess I will forever check hood latches but will ask someone for a lesson first. If I was a scammer I would have not allowed my pic to be seen. Just saying. The advice of stay on the insurance co. is what I will take from this. Based on the topic, check your latches and stay safe.
