Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

- After 6 months my car with a replacement battery still shows 110% SOH. It has lost 0.1% from Max and 0.0% from Min. This GOM reading is higher than when the car was new. https://goingelectric.de/forum/download/file.php?id=88255&t=1 That's fantastic! Looking forward to seeing how mine works ou...

Re: Uh-oh - Gear oil leak

I called KIA Roadside assistance and they came and towed the car to the nearest KIA dealer in Calgary, AB. Dealer called and said they can't touch it because they are not EV Certified. Gave me the Canadian corporate number for Customer Assistance. So I called that number and explained the situation,...

Re: Uh-oh - Gear oil leak

- At 155,000km you seem to have been 'lucky'. Getting this issue just 5,000km before the warranty expires. I haven't heard of anyone else getting this issue, but I am sure they will. Also I was surprised this was EV System not Drivetrain. Again, you are 'lucky'. https://abload.de/img/warrantygkk6k....
