Re: Hey All New Soul EV Owner Wants To Increase Ground Clearance !!

If you really only need 1-2 inches higher you can get that by fully inflating the largest tires Rated for the vehicle. I have driven a Leaf on dirt roads in the snow and it just pushes it or packs it down. EV do better than I thought in standing water and snow. They can handle deeper stuff than my V...

Re: Looking for my Second EV

@freesoulev
As caught by others, the warranty info I had was wrong.

Just ordered weather tech floor mats which are great for the snow days.

I am still deciding on the trunk mats. I usually keep a big ice chest back there for shopping trips and put anything that spills in there.

Re: Check EV system error

We made the 130 mile Round trip with a DCQC at 20%
came home with 40% and L2 charged to 100% and did another short trip out and back ending at 30%
no problems and we did highway speeds elevation gain and full A/C with no return of the error codes.

Re: Check EV system error

Re: Check EV system error

This happened to my wife today as we were driving up a steep canyon. It went into turtle mode and came to a complete stop. We were able to back up downhill to a spot that had a shoulder and was level. When I turned it back on in an attempt to back further to a safer spot the indicator light was gone...

Re: Looking for my Second EV

@jejusoul After my experience with the Leaf I should have known not to go by what the dealer says. Thanks for the info, it makes me even happier that I went with the Kia over the Nissan. We drove it home from the dealer and had to stop by a level 2 charger to make it, because it is a climb in elevat...

Re: Looking for my Second EV

I just made a deal for a 2017 + with low miles for $15,500. The dealer confirmed that the second owner only gets 5 year warranty on the battery for degradation to 70% I was not able to check the SOH with the Bluetooth dongle, which comes in the mail tomorrow, but there will still be more than 3 year...

Re: Looking for my Second EV

I just test drove a Soul EV.
We liked it.
I found out that the warranty on the fatter is only 5 years for a second owner.
I did not get the price that I wanted, so the hunt continues

Re: Looking for my Second EV

Thanks for the tips I am 70 miles from a Dealer. The $14,000 Soul is a good price. I will check it out. That is about 1K more that a 2017 Leaf with the 30 kWh battery. I suspect after 5 years of driving the rang in both will be about the same? I have not driven the Soul yet. I need to do that this w...

Re: Looking for my Second EV

Thanks @jujusoul I live in the mountains East of Sacramento, so the Soul EV is rare compared to the Leaf and Spark. I am wanting to try a different EV than the Leaf. I have a 2016 and am not concerned about a warranty. My only concern is will the range be sufficient in 3-4 years? My current 24kWh pa...
