I've replaced the hood struts and the trunk struts due to them getting a bit weak. The hood almost hit a tech on the head while he was changing the oil.
The best explanation I've heard about why these struts are failing is that they're designed for normal use. We (forum-folk) tend to open and close our hoods a lot more than the 2-3 times per year that a normal car's hood gets opened.
