Yea stock ones suck, I've gone through 3 sets under warranty. If you go to shows/gtg's a lot and leave your hatch open for them it will happen. Since my warranty is out now I'll be ordering the ecs kit next time.
Actually, I never leave the hatch open for extended periods of time. Bad luck for me, I suppose.

But I'm kind of curious though about the reliability of ECS's kit versus the stock struts, since it's actually using struts sourced from Skoda (another VAG company). My gut tells me the quality would be about the same.

the ECS hate pop up kit is not so great for ppl who is in cold area
Well, that wouldn't be a problem for me because I live in Phoenix. Blazing hot 9 months out of the year, and rarely below 50 during the winter.
