Strange extra hole under hood on pass. side?

I have a strange extra hole that appears to have been drilled into the underside of the hood along the passenger side. It is located about 1/3 of the way back from the front and drilled into the sheet metal along the perimeter/outer edge.

I can't figure out why this would have been done and I bought the vehicle used from Carmax.

Any ideas?

Probably had an alarm w/ a pin switch/sensor mounted there that would trigger the alarm if the hood was opened.

You're lucky that bullet hole didn't go all the way through! Must have been a 25 or 32 ACP.

I don't believe thats a bullet hole, but I would take it back to carmax and have them explain what the hole is all about.

I agree not a bullet hole.

I am thinking that possibly they drilled a hole to pop out a dent on the top of the hood. There's no evidence of a dent though....

So I'm just guessing...

I am taking it in for a 30 day check up an to repair a few minor things. I'll ask.

Right there is exactly why I dont like buying used. You have no clue what the last owner has done to the vehicle, if the serviced it properly or how hard they beat on it.

Yes, the guys who do paintless dent removal usually have to drill holes like that to remove dents. I had a dent on the hood of one of my old cars when a branch broke off a tree during a storm. Unfortunately, they had to drill two very similar holes under my hood to get their tools in from underneath to pop the dent out. The guy was finished in about 30 minutes and when he was done it looked like I never had a dent there in the first place.
