Compass Hood

2 questions:

1- Why is the hood designed as it is
2- Why does it weigh so much

Wasnt there a recall on the hood the first few years because they were catching air under it and flipping up on freeways? Maybe it's the added reinforcement.

But "ugly" design and a "2-ton" hood? Isn't that going a bit far?

Ugly is subjective and the whole car doesn't way 2 tons. Maybe you're just a wimp?
