Android Auto Notification Volume

Don't know if this is a Starlink or Android Auto thing I need to fix, but one of the reasons I pretty much never use Android Auto is that text notifications are loud. Like, ear-piercingly loud.

When I'm in Android Auto, my phone ringer is on silent, my Subaru's SMS/MMS notification sound is at 0, and I'll be listening to music. If a text comes through to my phone, the stereo will play my incoming text noise at full volume. Loud enough for me to unplug the phone and not use Android Auto for a few months.

Is this an issue anyone knows about or can help me remedy?

I had the same issue when I first used Android Auto. I unintentionally discovered that hitting the volume down button right after the notification will turn down the alert volume. I discovered this also works with the navigation volume.
