    mga pre -- just recently bought a vios... 1.3J..

    what can you say about its clutch? parang hassle ung kailangan mo pang tpakan ng husto ung clutch bago mo sya ma-start... ganon ba talaga dapat un? ung dating vios ba ganon din ang design?

    sensya na dami kong tanong... naninibago pa rin kasi ako sa ganitong feature ng vios...

    salamat!!

    its a safety feature designed to make sure you don't accidentally start your car while in gear.

    M/T cars in the US already have this feature since the 80s.

    Correct.

    I actually do this myself, even if I don't have to on my car. If you accidentally start your car while in gear, you might crash into something parked in front or behind you - even with the handbrake engaged. It seems laughable but it's surprising how often this happens.

    True, especially if you're the only driving your car and you don't make it a habit to put it in gear when parked. When someone else with the park-in-gear habit uses it or has moved it, 90% of the time the car lunges forward.

    the best habit is always check if the transmission is in NEUTRAL position... kasi kahit nakatapak ka sa clutch (for safety prior starting) tapos na start mo na engine... eh naka engage pala yung 1st gear mo kasi hindi mo check prior starting.. pag bitaw mo ng clutch same thing will happen or baka mas worse pa kasi naka idle up pa yung engine mo kasi nag warm up.. mas malakas sipa nun

    Yup hassle nga. At first at least.

    But think of it this way, pagnakasanayan mo na ang ganitong habit you apply this to any other manual tranny car as a good safety precaution.

    This is similar to Pajero automatics - you have to step on the brake to shift from Park to Drive or Reverse.

    Good practice.

    Not a hassle for the very good safety feature.
    Mag DIY ako ng ganyan na feature for my old car, a simple switch for kill switch.

    afaik, its located behind the battery. yes, the clutch and brakes share on the fluid reservoir. i assume your car is a vios 1.3 mt
