well, to be fair, when our 00 SLE had the same thing happen the hood had to be replaced according to the dealer because once the aluminum of the hood oxidized, it could not be repainted. (a permanent chemical reaction occured throughout the metal that made it unable to have primer adhere permanently to it.) This is just what the dealership told us. We believed them because the dealer paid for the hood, paint, and labor before we bought the car from them. (it was on of the conditions we wanted fixed before buying the car.) we just wanted the hood painted, it was the dealer who said the hood had to be replaced first though..
