Ram 1500 8-cyl

  • 223,800 miles
I have a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 extended cab and the hood unexpectedly flew up going down the highway and smashed my window and the hood is destroyed. This is the second time, very very dangerous, for me and the drivers behind me. The grill flew off and possibly damaged the cars behind and next to me. The first time it happened was a couple years ago and I was very lucky it was not a busy road and I was only going abut 35-45 mph. To correct it I had to buy a new hood, grill and all parts pertaining to the hood replacement....oh also a new windshield. Thanks Dodge!

Ram 1500

  • 161,000 miles
While driving done the road at 45 mph, hood unexpectedly opened, blocking my view of the road and causing my windshield to smash. Immediate inspection of safety latch showed that it was not working correctly due to built up rust. Windshield and hood will need to be replaced, along with saftey latch. (all damaged parts are available for now).

While driving down the road, the hood latch on my 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 released. This caused the hood to fly up, crashing into the windshield. The windshield shattered, the hood twisted beyond repair, and the hood springs were completely mangled. I found an article on Consumer Affairs showing that there have been 30 consumer complaints regarding the same incident. We have filed a claim w/ the insurance company for severe damages.
