Usually the latch on the chassis and the catch on the hood can be adjusted to make them meet up properly.

There are, or should be, adjustable rubber stoppers on both sides of the hood, near the front corners. They thread up and down, and if those are too tall, you have to slam the hell out of the hood. If they're too short, it rattles. You might play with those, and make sure you're slamming the hood from the center, not from one side, or it can come down twisted and fail to engage the lock.
