I've had mine up to 130, and many times cruising between between 90 and 100. No issue with the hood. I think you are right that something is wrong with your hood. PM the FordCustomerService, above. I have had really good luck with them.

It's only in the left/right side by the lights that are lifting....3 years later, it still does it, haven't blown off yet. My 2year old son did smack the hood with a golf club, almost thought I would have to replace it, but there is no dings, just some chipped paint..sigh!

Default Hood lifting at speed

I emailed ford customer rep and they replied that the factory hoods are bonded on the edge and on some of the inner bracing. My hood has no bonding so the inner and outer panels slide on each other where they are folded and crimped and allow hood to bend and lift. I would be willing to bet that the problem hoods are no longer bonded and the hoods that are staying down are still bonded. If you guys who read this could check your hoods for bonding along the side and front edges we can have a consensus on this issue. Since mine is not bonded drivers side front corner will move up and down a foot with out pass side moving as it sits open on prop rod.

Mine is bonded and sealed. It is like one piece. As stated above, I have no issues with my hood.
