1.hood: While driving at highway speed, I noticed the hood fluttering as if it was not closed securely. I pulled off at the next exit and checked the latch. I tried to pull it open but found it was securely latched. I opened then latch and shut it down hard to make sure it was tightly secured. When I got back out onto the highway, it happened again! it has now happened several times. I've gotten used to it but it is still unnerving each time as I fear the hood will fly up while I'm driving at high speed. 2. tire pressure sensors: I have owned this vehicle for about 18 months and have had to replace two of these sensors. They start beeping and a message appears saying the pressure is low in the tire. When I have had the tire checked (on several occasions), the air pressure is in the normal range of 32. Each time the tire attendant added extra air to try to silence the alarm but cautioned that doing so could be dangerous. Otherwise, the only way to stop the beeping (which is unbelievably annoying on a long road trip) is to have the faulty sensor replaced.
