Asked by Feb 19, 2017 at 09:25 PM about the 2011 Ford Escape

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Driving 65 mph -hood flew open with great force against windshield.  Mulitple
cracks all across windshield. Towed to auto body shop: once there, car would
not start and doors would not lock.  Don't know why.  I had just noticed that
day hood would not open and seemed securely latched in place. Is a dash
light supposed to come on to warn of an impending latch issue?

Just claim it all on insurance. Let the body shop figure it all out.
