When Subaru introduced the current-gen WRX for the 2022 model year, it gave the sport sedan a turn signal stalk that immediately flicked back to center, like the much-maligned ones found in BMWs from the mid-aughts and early 2010s. Now, the WRX is getting a minor refresh for 2024, and as part of it, Subaru has quietly ditched that design for the more conventional kind, as one Redditor has confirmed.

As you can see in this video from Tyson the Subaru Specialist, the 2022 WRX's turn signal quickly reverts after you indicate in either direction. Then to cancel the signal, you have to either turn the steering wheel enough for it to self-cancel, tap the stalk in the same direction again, or gently tap it in the other direction. The latter can be frustrating, because it's easy to accidentally push it too far the other way and signal the opposite turn. But in the 2024 WRX, the stalk stays in position until you either push it back or complete your steering, like in most cars. A diagram in the new WRX's owner's manual shared by Redditor Dazzling-Rooster even makes note of it.
