2001 Ram hood safety latch malfunctioned. The consumer contacted the manufacturer about this malfunction. While driving 30-40 mph the hood came open and smashed into the windshield. The consumer believes he should be reimbursed for this malfunction because a the latch of the 1994-1999 Dodge Ram had been recalled and he believes they have the same latch.
