Yeah i had trouble with this too, but decided i don't need it.

Simply creating one half and then mirroring mesh worked for me.

Try to mirror without merging and then merge manually.

Hey budd i guess u activated high quality with number three and since symmetry only helps u look the other half user added image wich means they are not together so it shapes the edges in that middle too much so mirror it after ur done with symmetry.....sorry if i didnt explain it good user added image dont forget mirror mesh it
