Not sure if VW is going to introduce a OEM Replacement for its original Bicycle Horn? For a Vehicle its size, its simply ridiculous and unsafe. Sounds like they probably used a Single Horn instead of a Dual Low and High Pitch Horn.

Since its a VW product, I do not see why you cannot use a horn combo from an Audi or VW vehicle. If the original horn is a single unit, you might need to change the relay and fuse rating to allow for dual units.

Good point. I find it hard to believe that such a weak pathetic bicycle Horn on the Taos is anything but a single unit.

These car manufacturers should really come up with a signature horn that fits their brand. Even the horn in my Audi S5 sounds pathetic.

The Taos horn is really saying "I'm so sorry" rather than saying "get out of my way you idiot". I need the latter.

I'm really surprised that the NHTSA hasn't set some minimum standards for Vehicle Horns. A certain minimum level of Decibels should be required as a safety function other then lowering your window and screaming!
