There was a recent post about a Laguna RTi with a roof dent that resulted from the bonnet blowing back - clearly this is a much wider issue, as many cars have a safety catch that's at least partially plastic. With MPV-style vehicles, a loose bonnet isn't as obvious from the cabin as on a saloon.

That said, I note that my Avantime catch is all metal (witness the dates mentioned above).

My other cars are less unusual!
