Just got the Rav4 EV for my wife, and neither of us are happy with the horn.

I installed one of these: http://screaming-banshee.com/all-produc ... orn-1.html
on my daughters PT Cruiser and it works great.

I think I will try one on the Rav4.

it seems to be popular around here to install train horns on cars. I've seen 2 different vehicles (both pickups) with one installed.

However those are compressed air horns so they require a compressor to operate. Likely not enough space in the Rav4 to mount one...

The advantage of the Screaming Banshee horn I posted is it gives the best of both worlds. You can still give a polite beep when needed, but press for longer and you get the full blast of a VERY loud horn, and you can also wire it to pulse the headlights. You want to get noticed, this is the method. I can tell you it saved my daughter in her PT Cruiser as well as mine on my bike countless times.

As soon as my wife gives me clearance to mess with her car a bit I will put one on the Rav4EV.
