    2011 GTI broken hood hinge.... anyone else run into this issue

    For a friend of mine, he bought a 2011 GTI a week ago and just put over 10hrs on it and today his hood broke. I though I read that someone else had this issue but I cant remember.

    ouch. and i havnt seen this problem (not very common)
    im sure it would be a c=somewhat costly repair.
    unless ofcourse you go redneck like me xD
    duct tape, silicone, construction glue. should fix it up.
    how did it happen?

    Bring it right back to the dealer - should be under warranty.

    not sure, he brought it out last weekend and was showing me how flimsy it was. Went back home to PA and it broke when he was out today. He is going to take it to the dealer on Monday, crazy tho someone else just had their steering column break on their fairly new ski.

    Dude I am soooo heated about this. Its not like I hit anything I was just out riding and got a little rough for a sec and the hood just popped up. Everything is plastic now instead of the old metal pins they used to use. I even bought the extended warranty for this thing so ima take it monday and hopefully things get fixed cause I havent even made a payment yet. I would hate to have to call my lawyer lol.

    humm this might be an issue for the new rxp-x. Since they are basically the same ski from the water line up, if they are breaking now I'd hate to see what the abuse from a more aggressive model will do
