Greetings!

My 2009 xB (release series) is in great shape. However, I've recently noticed that when driving on the highway the hood wobbles up and down, sort of in a bowing motion. I know that the hood is latched, but when I pull up on it I am able to move it about an inch. I never noticed this before, so I'm fairly certain that this is a new issue.

Has anyone else experienced this? And do you think this is at all dangerous and warrants having the latch looked at?

Thank you!

I would definitely get that fixed. A inch is a lot of movement for the hood.

Only issue I have had with the hood on my 2010 xB is it popping up some on the interstate. Did it 3 times. The hood was properly closed. The main latch would release but the secondary latch held. Secondary being the one you manually release. Ordered a new latch assembly and all is well.
