Re: 2016 EV+ Battery Replacement Story

I finally have my "new" 2016 EV+. When I picked it up from the Dealership, the battery was charged to 84% and the car reported 98 miles remaining! I just took it on its first drive since I got it home and I'm doing a slow 110v charge right now. I think the best part is that cell deteriorat...

Re: 2016 EV+ Battery Replacement Story

I just got a call from the dealership. They said they received the part yesterday (the 6 week mark) and installed it and the car is ready to go. I'm picking it up tomorrow morning and they said they'd have it charged for me. Of course, I'm not driving much anymore since we're all on lockdown, but it...

Re: 2016 EV+ Battery Replacement Story

After the 2 week mark passed, I called the dealership but was told to just keep calling back every few days to check. That was not acceptable in my opinion, so I called Kia Corporate. The rep was very friendly and tried to lookup the part order to see when it was ordered and where it was. She was un...

Re: 2016 EV+ Battery Replacement Story

Well, it's been 2.5 weeks. The dealership has not been very forthcoming with details. I called corporate a few times and the dealership a few times. Finally I got my service adviser to call me back today and confirmed that the part has been ordered and is currently in transit, but with no ETA. I'm a...

Hardwiring a DashCam

Has anyone hardwired a dashcam into their SoulEV? I'd like to do it and either use the power from the mirror or the front center lights so that I don't have to run a wire all the way around the windshield.

Re: My 1yo SoulEV 2018 is a Write off, accessories for sale

Thanks for the details. It is on sale right now, but for such a small gain, it's really hard to justify when the cost of electricity is pretty cheap.

Re: New software update installation (video)

Out of curiosity, what would happen if I took an upgraded SD Card out of another SoulEV and put it into mine. Would mine upgrade permanently, would the other car stop working? Do the cards need to be in at all times in order for the system to work?

Out of curiosity, can either of you (seller or buyer) provide info on the SoulChip? Did you notice a difference in range while using it? Do you like the difference in acceleration?
