Re: Best way to drop 1% SOH on 2016?

I called the dealer on Friday and they have not received the replacement yet. The service adviser said a previous replacement took 2-3 weeks so they were hopeful it would be soon. But I have read that it could be until January 2020 before they have replacements available. I asked if I could just dri...

Took the Soul in to the dealer on Wednesday afternoon. SoulSpy was saying SOH = 58.9%. Service called me back today and said Kia has authorized a "high voltage" battery replacement. They will give me an estimate next week when they expect the replacement to be available. This is for my dau...

But now that you mention it, I will be driving more on the freeways and fully charging the battery. Since it is already borderline 70%, a little extra abuse should h...

Best way to drop 1% SOH on 2016?

Hi, Soul-mates. I recently (10/13) purchased a 2016 Soul EV (+ if that matters) for my daughter. Since she's still on a learner's permit and can't drive solo, I've been taking it to work and saving lots of dead dinosaurs. I like most everything about it except the range.
