    Plastic Hood?

    A jealous neighbor said that the hood on my 2012 CTS coupe is plastic. Although it doesn't appear to be metal, I can't figure out what it actually made of. Any ideas?

    My 2011 coupe hood is aluminum. I just had a bunch of hail damage repaired, and that's what they told me. Of course, they could have been full of it!

    I'm pretty sure it is aluminum, but let's just say it was plastic. So what? A Corvette is made of plastic (technically fiberglass)? What's his point?

    It's aluminum. The bumpers are "plastic" as they are on most cars. Tell him to shove it
