Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

Hey Everyone, crazy this forum is getting so big. I just brought one of these cars into KIA (the dealer who sold me the car said the battery was newer, which it wasn't, just the charging system.) Kia is replacing the battery with a brand new one, I brought it last week, left it there for 3 days, the...

What ever came of this?!?! I am going to try booking an appointment soon, dealer said my battery was replaced but I called KIA and it doesn't seem to be the case, the BMS was upgraded (firmware?).

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

ksoul, It's too bad you don't live closer to me, I could help you with the backup camera. But to be honest look at the way they handled some of the dismantling they probably accidentally unplugged it, or it's not seeing the shifter position. What happens when you put it in reverse? Does the screen j...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

I believe the reason for the keyfob to be wrapped like it was, was to provide all the drivers with a master key which would open the doors (My manual keys do not work). This way the taxi driver would be able to drop the car off and easily swap and start the next car without requiring the fob. Who kn...

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. Anyways some pics of...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

Hi FueledUpRooster A couple of notes: 1) If it's the same tires as I saw on a few models in Toronto, those are not crappy winter tires, but upgraded all weather tires (Think snow tires you're allowed to use all year round). I'll leave it to others who know more about which tires are actually best f...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

Hey everyone, Just joined the forums, I purchased one of these EV's last weekends, very minor damage (replacing a bumper bracket, roof not caved in from taxi mounts). Couple of strange things so far, When we picked it up after purchase the GOM read 122 km range left, after a long drive home from Tor...
