It actually reminds me of my old Saab's, they can be a bit loud but are not annoying when you get used to them. And, yes, the radio or Windows down can help drown it out.
Today, many blinkers are computer-controlled and the clicking sound comes from the speakers. Unfortunately, you can’t reduce the sound by turning the volume control.
Agreed. Sometimes I find myself driving for a while with the blinkers turned on, because of the music. So, I assume it's better to have them loud than not to hear them at all.Its probably a good thing that its loud since often I have seen people either not use blinkers or use them and keep it on for too long.
Time to get your favorite music playlist going in the Envision if you haven't already
On the Start/Stop technology, I read on Youtube that you can shift to L, then push the button on the shift all the way up to L6, then the Start/ Stop won't engage. The Youtube is on the GMC but I use for my Envision and it works. I am not sure if it does anything to the car but so far it feels the same as you are in D.
