I was always wondering what people find so terrible with the Rio horn. Some said it does not represent the character of the car. I thought it just sounds like any other car out there and after all it is just a horn. Then I came across another Rio at the parking garage when the owner just locked the door (and I heard the honk) and I thought that sounds really... cute, more like something you will find in a scooter.
What strikes me is that the horn on my Rio sounds so different from what I heard this morning. I have not done any modifications on that part so I am wondering which one is the real horn. I tried to find some video examples online but was not successful so far. Was Kia running out of the cute ones when they manufactured my car and gave it a grown up size?
@KCOPE316, I think the Optima sounds better because it has 2 horns (low / high tone). The Rio only has 1 horn (high tone). If you either add a second low tone horn or replace the single high tone horn with a low/high tone horm combo you will get the same Optima sound.
See attached diagram. #3 in the diagram is the horn.
