Would it be "necessary" having to replace your hood latch if your hood won't shut properly even though you hear clicking that it is closed, after a bad tire blow out and Mississippi mechanics stated: "Latch half broken?" I am not knowledgeable about cars and advice would great be appreciated since going to Toyota for hood latch estimated $300+. Because I have to go on long drive with my car and haven't gone over 50 m.p.h. in the car since tire incidence, and would there be possibility on the interstate if I was driving 75 m.p.h. that my hood could come off?? Resulting in dramatic accident. Thank you and any advice be wonderful to this college student!!
