Does anyone know how to turn down or turn off the beeps
"The Beeps" isn't very specific.

Regardless, your Owner's Manual has the answers

Sadly the bongs and warnings that are entirely too loud IMO are just there. My biggest pet peeve is the seatbelt warning. Why do I need my seatbelt fastened BEFORE I even power up the car? Why not beep at me if I'm in drive and going faster than ~5-10 mph like most European cars do? That's when you need your seatbelt fastened, so I'm all for an annoying warning if those conditions are met.

The constant loud bongs and chimes honestly make the car feel unnecessarily cheap while not doing anything for safety.

Agreed - Probably my biggest complaint about an otherwise excellent car

I tried everything to calm down the car's outrageously loud grandpa bongs when I first got it. Open the door--get a bong. Leave your cell phone on the seat? Get some chimes. Start the darn thing up -- have some tinnitus with that.

I wish there was an actually-read "feedback" that could be provided. Even if you can't turn them off, it's really unnecessary for them to be that loud.

You can turn down the volume on some of the chimes but maybe not low enough for some ears. You can turn down the volume on the start up/shut down sound and even turn this off. You can't do anything about the seat belt reminder dinging.
