my hood latch was broken, since replaced. while it was acting bad, my hood came open while driving three times. going less than 15 all times, but the last one bent the hood, where it attaches to the hinges. if you've never had the experience, i don't recommend it. it's barely noticeable, but the hood doesn't want to shut right now. you kinda hafta play with it for a while. how hard is it to straighten one? does anyone know a trick to do this? i really don't want to spring for another hood.
