I'm now researching horn upgrade options and will soon have this pitiful stock horn replaced! Yikes!
Same thing almost happened to me last night, with a stupid MBZ driver wanting to change into the lane I was in. Stock horn was completely ineffective! Well past time for change!
I had a similar near miss from a merging driver at the I-24 / I-75 junction.
The horn was nearly useless.
I don't know what the codes / standards / requirements are on horns, but I don't see how the horn on the Leaf could meet any reasonable standard. Absolutely the worst thing about the car.
Will be the first thing I change about it.
But Nissan should step up and replace it as a safety recall.
