Re: 2016 Soul EV BAttery replacement - Out of Stock?

Hey all, sorry for the delay in finishing this post. I got my Soul EV back from the dealer and the battery was not new, it was re manufactured. The day I picked it up the SOH was 99% with 98 miles of range. I opted to fly in and drive it home instead of waiting for them to transport it home. That wa...

One of the owners there offered to help getting me in touch with Kia America and I went on from there. I had no tools to look at state of battery. This guy has owned multiple brands of EV's and ...

Re: 2016 Soul EV BAttery replacement - Out of Stock?

OK, After browsing around this forum and other places I guess I'll shut up about Kia taking so long to fix my car!! I see where 4, 5 and 6 months times were reported for this. It appears it's not just Kia/Hyundia either. Keeping up with battery demand appears to be a common problem. I would still li...

2016 Soul EV BAttery replacement - Out of Stock?

Hey folks, glad to find this forum. I bought this 2016 with 36k miles and it didn't have the standard trickle charger with it, the dealer had provided one to use from another ev until he could get the Kia charger. After successfully charging it to 100% the range was 52 miles. I tried driving it down...
