Looks like my hood no my 2017 gt is about to fly off. Back roads with bumps or on the highway the hood flops around like a ton of air is getting inside the engine compartment. I pull and push all corners of the hood and cant flex it at all. Any ideas?

They make new pistons every day, so why worry?

This isn't an uncommon complaint with these cars. I would visit your dealer to see if they can adjust the bump stops under the hood to take the flex out.
