If this is a 2004, it should be covered under warranty by VW. You should take it back to the dealer and have them realign the hood striker.

How do you repair the center console in a Chevy Trailblazer?

The center console lid latch may break causing the console lid to pop open frequently. Obtain a 1/4" spring to sit naturally in the latch. this has fixed my latch hook. The issue is the hing is too soft and, when bent, causes the latch alignment pointer to break off. The latch then won't hook properly. Fix has worked for 4 years so far...despite 3 sons.
