I tried the horn at the local dealer in town.* The Leaf horn isn't loud enough and a bit wimpy sounding
I'm afraid it won't be commanding enough at freeway speeds.
Replacing the horn will be the first mod I do to the car. I've replaced the horns on both of my 1st gen Insights and our Toyota Tacoma with 2009 Honda Ridgeline horns. Now people can hear the horns on the freeway.
*Nissan made a special stop for 1hr 30 min on the way to load the car onto a semi heading to an LA show. The dealer let us try all the buttons, touch screen features, fold the seats down, etc., just short of not test driving or getting a ride in the car.
