Does the horn sound quite so pathetic outside the car as inside

I had to use the horn on my Rav for the first time yesterday, I sounded soo feeble from inside the car , less of a warning more something looking for sympathy ,  is the the same for all and quite a pathetic tinny sound ?

It's pretty pathetic. No doubt driven by Toyota's over zealous safety ambition. Safety in the sense of not aggravating other motorists to receive a bashing.

It does show a difference in culture between a japanese horn and, say, a german one. Definitely more of a polite "Pardon me sir" than a "GET THE F*** OUT THE WAY YOU **$&$%& *%$£& OR I'LL  &$"$%$£ YOUR WHOLE FAMILY!"

 

I sometimes feel I need a variety of horns for different situations, e.g. "Hello is anyone on the other side of this single-lane blind corner??" and "Excuse me fellow driver but the lights have changed!" and "Pardon me fellow driver but if you could pull forwards just a touch I'll be able to get past you into this left turn" and the always useful "I'M RIGHT HERE USE YOUR *$£#@#%£ EYES INSTEAD OF TURNING INTO THE SIDE OF ME WITHOUT LOOKING YOU BLIND **$%&$* IT'S MIRROR SIGNAL MANOEUVRE YOU IGNORANT #@+=$£&!!"

The extra sound deadening measures over the HEV make it sound even more pathetic - but it is truly pathetic in its own right...........

Yeh there was no politeness about my Merc horn. Was like something from Mad Max.

Long press for shouting horn.

Short press for polite horn.

How hard can it be to implement that?
