I had a bonnet fly up on a Granada. I was only doing 40 at the time so got away with a shock and no real damage (bonnet a bit bent). But it does make you think of the possibilities. My Clio bonnet opens forwards and last time I collected from garage the bonnet was bouncing at low speeds on bumpy roads. Solution to stop and close. However as others have posted they are sure there bonnets were closed I assume that there may be a catch problem around. Surely we all need to check these things more and if we have plastic catches pop to a dealer for advice.
