problem #3

XV Crosstrek

  • 40,000 miles
The horn only works when the steering wheel is turned. If you are driving straight, the horn does not work. A working horn is necessary to prevent people crashing into you. If you turn right on a straight road to sound the horn, it is not safe to drive off the road or into another lane to sound a horn. The vehicle was in motion when the problem occurred. Looking online, it looks like a common problem.
