Nice ride, enjoy!
Really? I noticed mine has a hard time latching on the driver side. Is there a fix?
I am not sure if there is a permanent fix. What I did is I slammed it really hard and it latched ok, I think the aluminum hood's light weight is part of the reason there. With heavy hoods, you just let go and they latch.
I noticed if you go on Autotrader or cars.com, ~10% of the cars have the hood partially unlatched.
I haven't researched it yet, but maybe we need a thread on it.
