Bakit Nakabukas ang mga Hood ng Vios Taxi

You noticed it too? I see many of taxis using the new Vios drive around with hoods unlatched. Whats the reason behind this?

    naisip ko para extra air inlet para mapalamig yun makina sa loob, pero diba delikado yun na tumatakbong nakabukas ang hood?

    sobrang umiinit yung makina ng VIOS kaya binubuksan nila yun kasi halos magdamag tumatakbo yung mga taxi tsaka kapag nasobrahan sa init yun parang rocket launcher yun na bigla na lang lumilipad pa-outerspace... haha..

    bawal talaga na buksan ang hood ng kotche pag umaandar, kasi effect nyan pag mabilis takbo sa highway or kalsada eh, bigla bukas hood at tatama sa window salamin ng driver, at isa to sa accidentes :drive:

    Oo nga ano? I think hindi land diyan sa inyo, but I saw a lot of this vios taxis and some private cars nakabukas ang hood dito sa Cebu. Before, I always point the open hood sa driver pag naka hinto sa gilid ko especially during traffic thinking that they forgot to close it. Ewan ko parang nauso na yata to.

    This is some weird habits by Pinoy drivers... along with turning on the hazard lights during the rain, not using signal lights dahil mapupundi ilaw, etc.

    They may claim that this is to "cool" the engine. But at the same time they might be using water instead of coolant for their radiators. Hehe.

    Modern cooling systems are already quite efficient... unless they are driving like mad and hitting the redline constantly.

    "along with turning on the hazard lights during the rain"

    Pag sobrang lakas ng ulan bumababa ang visibility all the more you need to be conspicuous as possible. It also tells the drivers behind you to slow down.

    Sorry but heavy rain is not a valid reason to use hazard lights. Use it only if you are parked during an emergency, was involved in an accident, or to warn other drivers that there is danger ahead (like a car stopped in the middle of a highway).

    You are losing the ability to use your signal lights to indicate that you will be changing lanes. And you will be confusing other drivers, and will be hard to distinguish parked vehicles in REAL emergency or was in an accident. Plus, our heavy rains here in the PH are nothing compared to the blinding snowstorms of other countries.

    As per Atty. Robby Consunji of Top Gear PH:

    "The Vienna Convention on Road Traffic provides that "the hazard warning signal may be used only to warn other road users of a particular danger: a) when a vehicle that has broken down or been involved in an accident cannot be moved immediately, so that it constitutes an obstacle to other road users; and (b) when indicating to other road users the risk of an imminent danger.

    The Vienna Convention forms part of Philippine law, as we are a contracting party to it. It is ratified by P.D. Nov 207 in 1973.

    ...

    The use of hazard lights in heavy rains can lead to distraction and confusion. Safety experts recommend the use of parking lights and headlights in blinding rain, or the installation of a rear fog light."

    imminent danger din ang collision due to aquaplaning and poor visibility di ba?

    btt Walang iniwan din yan sa tinatanggal ang themostat. Ang mga EFI kasi hindi pwedeng tanggalin ang thermostat since tataas ang konsumo nito dahil sa setting ng ECU kapag wala pa sa normal operating temp ang oto. Not sure about the carbs if they have a similar mechanism.

    di ba parang pasado na yung heavy rains sa a) and b) ?

    a) obstacle sila sa other road users because their speed is slower than most vehicles, because of the rain.

    b) imminent danger obviously the heavy rains and again slower speed than most vehicle.

    regarding the hood, di ba nakakasira ng lock ng hood yun?

    Id have to agree with the fact that visibility is really low if there's heavy rain, so i think its ok to use your hazard lights. It prevents possible collisions from happening since the driver behind you can easily see your vehicle because of your hazard lights.

    a few times when I was still living in manila naka-enkwentro ako ng mga ganyan, nakabukas ang mga hood.

    sabay nagkukumpol ang mga drivers sa nakataas na hood.

    yun pala pina-nickel plate/chrome yung makina :rotflmao: pinapagyabang lang. pati ako napasilip eh. hehehe. ang kintab!!

    kung mapapansin nyo mga sir yung grill kasi ng vios sa unahan mapa lumang version or yung bagong version ay sarado or less air ang pumapasok pag umaandar yung oto.

    ang fan ng vios ay isa lang. isa lang for the radiator and for the aircon unlike sa mga old school cars na magkaiba ang fan ng aircon at ng rad.

    tendency nito ay madaling mag overheat ang makina ng vios. thats the reason why na laging naka bukas yung hood ng vios taxi's or private vehicles.

    one solution dito ay palitan ng M3 Grill (Mala Mazda 3 Style) or Mesh Grill para kahit papano may air na pumasok sa loob while running on slow speed lalo na kung high speed :)

    I'm prertty sure the vienna sausage convention is not aware how poor visibility is sa kalsada natin once biglang buhos ang ulan natin. :)

    Basta I wanna make sure my rear end is highly visible when visibility deteriorates during a strong downpour just in case some idiot driver from Vienna is still speeding behind me even during a downpour.

    maybe its time to introduce a separate light for the hazard para magamit mo yung signal light kahit naka hazard ka.

    Isang quick fix dyan e yung reverse light na lang yung gawing hazard.
