22 miles into new Pilot going thru a rotary when an Explorer blows thru Yield sign cutting me off. Since the driving rain surely impairs his view of my hand gesture :30:, I lay on the horn. Gasp:eek:... this , my black 4000 lb Pilot, has the same horn that was on the candyapple red 1975 Honda 70cc minibike! The tone is reminiscent of the "bleep bleep" the Roadrunner would give to Wile E Coyote. I'm expecting Barry White & instead I get Aaron Neville.
Is there an aftermarket product available that allows testosterone or steroids to be injected into the horn system?? (All kidding aside, if this is my biggest complaint, I'm sure to enjoy this vehicle. maybe I can steal a handheld air horn from some crazed hockey fan)

LOL!:p :p

When I had my '00 S2000, the horn was very lite. Several folks added air horns and/or louder horns for the same reason. I've not really noticed the horn on the Pilot.

Honda did upgrade the horn on the '02 S2000. Sounds much better!:D

You may want to add an aftermarket replacement horn. Check out this link for more information.

Sorry for dragging up an old thread but it was exactly what I was looking for when I did the search. Davemac, what makes what you said so funny is that it is so true. I was just saying to my wife how the horn on the Pilot sounds like the Roadrunner. Beep, beep! I think Honda got the thing from the Civic parts bin. I want to replace it with a horn that has some Nads. The horn in my Grand Prix is perfect. Not obnoxious, but gets attention. It has a sound that says, "WTF are you doing?" as opposed to the Pilot horn that says "please excuse me for being on the road. I didn't mean to get in your way". Can I go to a junk yard and buy a Pontiac horn and install it into my Pilot? Will it work?

Hmmm...there's something I haven't thought about. Not only am I going to test drive it, I'm going to use the horn for all intensive purposes during the test drive :)

I agree. I've just been thinking about this the last few days - the horn DOES NOT MATCH THE PILOT!!!! Our Pilot's horn sounds timid and small. Not like how I see the Pilot!!

Surplus air horns from mothballed destroyer escorts might work.

Ignoring them and meditating might be cheaper, more aesthetically pleasing and more effective.
