Nope, I don't hit the gear lever, but I always hit the cruise control lever trying to signal. The signal stalk is way too low
I'd read about that before ever taking a test drive (have had two test drives so far) and didn't find this to be a problem. The cruise lever is in an odd spot, but the turn signal lever seems to be about where my hand expects it to be. No long-term experience yet, so I may have to revise this position!
