Took delivery on Tuesday and so far very pleased with my new car, but, just left my sons house after showing him the new car and went to beep beep the horn as I left and Wow, it sounded like one of those squeaky toys you can buy from the pet shop.
Does anyone else find this or have I just had a duff horn fitted?.

The horn on my 70 reg Puma has a good loud sound. Much better than the one on my wife`s Suzuki Scross..it`s pathetic!

Meep Meep ! I think these days they're designed not to intimidate, non confrontational, gentle on the lugholes. :roll:

Get a total 80s throwback Duke boys horn in there.. problem is that really does tick the not quite so politically correct box.

My 65 reg Focus Titanium had twin horns. It sounded far superior to the Puma.

However the Puma is superior to my wife’s Zetec KA.

Hmm, the Mk3 Kuga allegedly went from a good twin-tone horn to a poor sounding single tone.
My 2018 Fiesta Mk8 has the twin-tone.

Another cost cutting excercise ?
