Question about Subaru Cars & Trucks
Is it safe to drive 20 miles to the dealership to fix the recall on it. I have read in many places that the hood has flown open and smashed the windshield..because of this defect. I cannot get the hood open so I pushed down on it and it clicked locked again. i am scared to drive on the freeway just in case it pops open, should I put tape on the hood to the car...I know it sounds silly but I am just freaked after reading all the reports about this defect.

Put some tape over the front like they do on racing cars

Testimonial: "Thank you so much for your suggestion. I know nothing about cars, so had to google racing cars with tape...the lever inside the car still works. I only have electrical tape on hand and have to drive there in the morning, its seems like the hood is locked but I am just nervous. Will electrical tape work without also damaging the paint work"

Locate the interior hood-release lever under the dashboard on the driver's side of the interior of the car.
Lift up and toward you on the hood release lever. The lever is connected to a cable that releases the hood. The hood will pop up about 1/2 inch when you pull the lever.
Move to the front of the car and locate the exterior hood-release lever under the front of the hood. It is located near the middle of the vehicle, just beyond where the front edge of the hood meets the body. Lift up on the inner lever.
Lift up on the edge of the hood while holding the inner lever in place. When the hood is up, find the hood prop and raise it, setting its tip in the hood-prop mount on the hood, to hold the hood up while you work in the engine bay.
