Hybrid 2007 Vue hood latch is out of stock. Previous repair personnel did not follow up at the factory. This time they called up several levels trying to get authorization to have a part manufactured. New Vue has different part!!! Campaign notification on 2 problems. One involves the battery system on the hybrid not charging properly. To repair they went over the entire charging system making some modifications and updated software. All done under warranty but takes 2 days at shop.
