Hood flew off!!!
Whats up everyone. I just picked up a 97 Limited a month ago and around 2 weeks ago my hood flew up on me going around 80mph on the highway. Yes, it was latched and I had only had the hood open one time when I bought the vehicle in the first place and one time when I steam cleaned the engine bay. Two questions.
1. Even though this Jeep is 5 years old with 60,000 miles, would there be any chance that Jeep could do a recall and find that it had a defective hood latch/locking mechanism?
I have already had a new hood put on, but the same locking mechansim is still on there. The people who did the body work said it just needed to be lubricated, but I don't feel comfortable driving the vehicle around at high speeds.
Also, I have noticed that whenever I drive it, the hood shakes ever so slightly. It's not real noticable, but if your looking at it through the windshield, you can see it. Is this normal? LOL, I doubt it but would like to hear some opinions from people who actualy know something about these vehicles.
Thanks in advance for the help.
