I have a 2021 Crosstrek. Never had this problem with my 2015.
I raised the hood to change the air filter and saw that the engine compartment was covered with salt, etc from road water. Beginning of corrosion was present. Went to dealer. They power washed compartment and replaced weather strip behind hood release. But it turns out the only weather stripping available is extremely small ( in height) and will not prevent more road water from entering hood. I asked the dealer and called Subaru. They said nothing else was available. Older Subarus had a nice large strip on inside of hood.
Does anybody know of aftermarket weather stripping for under the engine compartment I can order? There are certainly enough holes on underside of hood.
