Opening Engine Hood

Hello All,
I am driving in left side country thus my steering wheel in right side. But my lever to open engine hood locate in left side, under glove box.
I have to get off from car go the left side - open front left door - pull the lever in order to open engine hood. It will be more complicated while there is someone sit in front passenger seat.
I can not get why Jaguar put this lever on left side, UK also left side driving country. So, this is should be under design and planning.

How about car which is marketed in right side driving countries? Does the lever located in left side?

cheers..

Yup, the hood release is on the left side in right side driving countries as well. Haven't ever seen a car with the release located on the right side.

I don't see where this would pose a big problem. After all, how often do you have to get under the hood? With most modern vehicles it's very, very seldom that you need to do anything with the engine.

Stan, agree that we very seldom to do anything with the engine, in fact I can not do anything.
Just need to clean them and fill wiper tank. Check battery and oil/water level before longer trip.
Here, sometime, before entering security sensitive area, I need to open the hood and let the guard check. Funny but it is happened.

cheers

Paris, I hadn't considered that. Well hopefully when they check under your hood they don't find anything other than your engine, hahaha
