2017 Lounge: 3-time indicator not reliable

On my previous 500 (2015 Lounge), or any other recent car for that matter, holding the left column stalk briefly up or down, would cause the corresponding indicator to flash 3 times, useful when changing lanes.
With the new 500 (2017 Lounge), the indicator does not come on when carrying out the same action, I actually need to move the stalk and hold in position for a second or so for the indicator to start flashing, which I find very inconvenient and unlike any other car that I have had the chance of driving since this feature became standard.
I initially thought that this was an issue specific to my car but when I took it back to the dealers', we checked a few more new 500's and they all exhibited the same symptoms. We then jumped on 2 old 500s (both from 2015) and their stalks worked correctly, i.e. more sensitive to the up/down touch.
This seems like a problem with the whole of the new series of 500s.

Anyone noticed that?

Re: 2017 Lounge: 3-time indicator not reliable

I found on our 59 plate, too long a flick and it does not work, have you tried just a very brief flick or was that what you tried?
