When I open it, it slides all the way open.

When I close it, it stops about half way and I have to release the switch and hit it again to close the rest if the way.

It doesn't slow down, or struggle. It just stops.

Is this normal?

I'm pretty sure this is normal - my 03 VDC does it as well. Not sure why Subaru did this though...

Interesting that the sedans are the same way.

It's annoying for the wagons, considering the rear panel closes before the front panel. So, for us wagon folks, it's a three press to close everything. But, then again, it's also a three press to open both completely. I could see it if it were an auto one-touch open deal, but it isn't.
