While traveling at hwy speeds (65 - 80mph) the hood vibrates and moves excessively in the air stream. It looks like it's about to pop off and crash into the windshield. My concern is fatigue caused from the movement will eventually cause the hood to fly up causing an accident or even blowing off.

The hood of the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder shakes/vibrates when driving at high speeds. The vehicle was worked on at two different Nissan dealerships and the problem was not corrected. The service departments attempted to adjust the bumpers under the hood, but this did not stop the shaking while driving at high speeds. The service manager and Nissan corporate say they have spoken to their tech line which has no other recommendations for corrections, so as it stands I am stuck with a hood that shakes. I see this as a safety concern as I feel the hood should be secure especially when driven at 65-70 mph. I have never owned a vehicle that has a hood that shakes and I would like to be confident that the hood of this vehicle is securely placed and does not move when being driven.

Pathfinder 6-cyl

When driving at a higher speed, the hood of the car vibrates significantly. It feels like the hood may flip up at any time. Double-checked to be sure the hood was locked and it was.
