Beep in reverse too quiet

I recently bought my Niro and noticed that the beeping in reverse is really quiet. Is there a way to increase the volume so you can actually hear it?

Why do you need to hear it? Itís for people outside the car to not get hit by it when only the electric motor is running. And Iíve been told itís distinctly louder outside.

In the Prius I found the loud truck-like backup beep to be very annoying. I love the I can barely the Niroís.

We can barely hear ours outside of the vehicle. It's VERY low. But agreed, glad it's not something too loud and annoying.

I doubt that this is something we can do ourselves and odds are its a feature that is left up to Nissan to work on. Being such a new vehicle that's where we should be looking for answers. Has anyone tried to contact Nissan USA about this?

I doubt Nissan would care, other than to suggest getting a Leaf instead of a Niro.

Does anyone remember the 60's movie It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad world? The Italian guys car breaks down, so he gets in a ladies convertible to finish the "race". First thing he does is bust off the rearview mirror and throw it out. Then says "first rule of Italian racing- never worry about what is behind you."

The first "Gumball Rally"... Italian driver there sez "what's behind you is not important"

BTW, I can't even hear the beep, in or out of the car, good!

Yes, I might be mixing up the movies, that was a long time ago.

First rule: what is behind you is not important. As he breaks off the rear view mirror.
