If your dealer has "fixed" the problem by wrapping tape of some sort over the latch, I would recommend asking them to instead adjust the latch mechanism as one of the other posters discovered. Combining this technique with the adjustable rubber bump stops on the hatch cures all of the problems we've encountered.
