Horn button on 2012 Wrangler

To anybody who has a 2012 Wrangler:

Is the horn button hard to push, like on the 2011 models? Is there a split-second delay (probably caused by the computer) between the time you press the horn button, and the actual sounding of the horn?

On my 2011, it is almost impossible to hit the horn button for just a short "beep". You have to press way too hard on the horn button, and there is also that split-second delay before the horn sounds. It's a minor issue, but annoying.

Just wondering if Jeep addressed this on the 2012 models.

Yeah, Kinda' hard to give a polite tap of the horn by hitting/pushing the middle of the steering wheel. But, just a touch on the outside of the horn 'ring' with a thumb honks it pretty easily. Your right, it needs a real horn ring.

That delay thing on all of the equipment is annoying. For 40 years as soon as I turned the ignition key the starter would crank. When it didn't I knew there was a problem. Now when I turn the key that split second time delay gets me nervous after 40 years of turn vroom now I have turn-------------- vroom. In the past that delay was always a sign of either being stranded or needing a tow. And there weren't any cell phones then.
