Whats up with the turn signals on the X?

Is anyone else having issues with the turn signals? Half of the time they dont turn off automatically unless its like a 90 degree turn. To make things worse they hardly emit any noise and the steering wheel blocks my view of the dash light. I have only had the car for a few days but I've already noticed several times that I've been driving for a while with my blinker on because it didn't click off at the last turn. Is there anyway to make the signal louder in the car? I can only hear mine if there's no music on and even then it's still quiet.

The blinkers are really quiet. We've all driven down the road for 5 miles with the blinker on, old lady style. It happens to the best of us.

I experience those issues as well. I never really viewed it as a problem or even given it an afterthought. Its just one of those things that make an Evo X...well, an Evo X.

Typical for a car like the Evo with a short steering ratio. It was the same on the Evo IX I had before my Evo X. You'll get used to it

I like how quiet they are, but I do notice that occasionally they don't turn off when making only 45-90 degree turns

I like the muted click

I like the way the triple flash works (you can cancel it mid flash)

I'm like a dog off a leash at every intersection so nobody is going to care that my indicator is still on when I'm way ahead.

Serously!!

I always forget I leave it on and I figure it out 5 minutes later on the freeway.



Also anyone having this problem as well where you adjust the steering wheel just where you want it and you cant see the the signal lights or any of the light icons?!

I am only 5"7 and I think my arms are pretty normal at length. I brought the wheel down a little and I cant see anything! frigin bugs when you have a light up or something I dont notice it till ltater

Meh. I learned to drive on a car where the turn signal level didn't go back to normal when you turned. I'm used to it I guess

IMO, it's the recaros and the way you sit in them. When I had my 09 Lancer GTS, I didn't think anything of it. Now I feel it's difficult to get just the right setup.

i would suggest if your making slight turns just push the signal either up or down ( not clicking it) cuz if you dont make a wide enough turn it wont shut off.
