    It has been windy here lately, I was taking a trip on the highway which has a 85mph limit when apparently my hood blew open! It seems like it caught a decent gust of wind and I heard a loud pop and saw the hood lift a bit, then it started bouncing around pretty badly. I immediately pulled over, popped the latch from inside and tried to lift the hood.

    It was still stuck on the driver's side latch, but the secondary latch on the passenger side actuated by the handle under the front of the hood apparently popped loose. I latched the hood completely, and then pulled the handle inside, I was able to get it open after that, so at least the driver's side latch did it's job and kept it from opening completely, but has anyone else had this happen?
