    I've noticed many Challengers have a raised front edge to the hood. It kind of ruins the lines, not to mention it will catch a lot of air and affect mileage. Is this a problem with the hood being flimsy or the latch, or does the nose tend to sag down?

    Just do a search for 2011 Challengers for sale and look at them. Most will show the issue.

    My hood has a raised edge since a suv knocked my front end off and the bodyshop ''fixed'' it. Mainly raised a little from about where the hoodlatch area is over to the right corner. I adjusted the hood stops but to no avail and I am too displeased with that shop to take it back for adjustment.

    I take yours has one? I never noticed the separation being that bad. Do you have pics of yours we can see?

    I don't have one yet. I just noticed it seems to be a fairly wide spread issue.
