Silly Question!

Looking for the answer to an odd question I thought of today:
What does the Camaro 5th gen horn sound like?

I hate horns that are wimpy sounding, but I also hate those that sound like a freight train! Have a 2LT on order, just curious and doubt my dealer wants me to come in and lay on their car horn in the showroom

prob better then my grand am.. it sounds like i stuffed a towel in the horn and filled it with gas and lit it on fire.. i hope they sound good. if not go to a junk yard and get one from a f350 or something that actually sounds good and swap it in. 5 dollar swap.

Boy, I thought of this question myself. Out of the last four new cars I bought, two had nice sounding horns (86 El CAmino & 98 S10) the other two (89 Z24 & 07 Cobalt SS) had horns that really sounded terrible. Neither were dual hi/lo units and hopefully, the Camaro has them rather than just a single unit.

I tried this out just today. The horn is solid and loud but not to loud, Sorry no sound clip, I didn't think if it and did not have any recording equipment with me anyway.

I'm glad to hear that I wasn't the only one wondering! I want my horn to say "Get out of my way!", not "sorry my bad". I wouldn't take it off the lot till the dealer fixed it if it played a song

Make sure you don't reach in an open window and open the door if it's locked. A sales guy did that on the showroom floor today. VERY LOUD. Chirped about 8 times then started blaring until the Sales Manager found the keys. I was cringing when the salesman was climbing through the window trying to hit the unlock button on the dash. Picture a brass beltbuckle sliding across the top of the door as he wiggles around trying to reach the button.

Yeah my chevy I have now does this, so I know better. I just can't imagine the honking in the salesroom! My dealerships showroom is small (only holds 2 cars on the floor) so I can't imagine the echo being pleasant!
