Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

I found I couldn't go by the GOM at all as a first guess at the battery health. ... So, I would suggest also going into the menu and looking at the trip history. If it is full of inefficient trips (high kWh/100km) from months ago then I think the predicted range will be significantly underestimated...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

I think they mainly don't include the l1 charging cable. Also check the guessometer on 100% charge or on whatever percentage it's on and do the math. The range varies on the cars even with the same mileage. Some have had batteries replaced and most are eligible for battery replacement if the state ...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

Hey Guys, I'm from Ottawa, a dealer in Toronto has one of these with 130KM (2016 Kia Soul EV Luxury Trim) with what looked to be original paint for $9950. I've put a deposit down, and thanks to this forum, saw the rebate offer for $1,000 from PlugNDrive. I currently work from home and generally jus...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

https://youtu.be/x0oFrloTuc0 Thanks for making the video! Much appreciated. Removing the shift knob is no problem but no matter what I try I can't even start to lift the console. Either I'm weak or it has stronger clips. :) Further to this post, the dealer undertook the task of removing the console...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

So I was emboldened to pop off the housing around the shifter. Was not too hard to pop off the shifter knob in neutral, and pull the console out and up... Ah. So from your description and photo it looks like the top of the housing needs to be pulled toward the rear of the car first and then up. I w...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

Hey everyone, So I decided to take the wiring out of the car today and found the SECOND KEY FOB and the AUX/USB unit completely intact! The FOB was so exciting to find, they had it connected around one of the NFC wires by winding the wire around the fob about 15 times, very odd.... If anyone is goi...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

The highest range I had seen om my 2018 former taxi until the other day was 177km. After bringing down enough to go into Turtle mode, I did a full charge and got 187km. This morning after topping it up for a trip it reported 191km range. It would be nice if this trend continues!

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

As another data point, I bought one of these former Teo Taxi taxis. But it is a 2018 with 36k km on it rather than a 2016. It had most of the common issues mentioned previously with regard to wiring and missing items although the wiring tended not to be disconnected, rather it was just 'tapped-into'...
