Just had a call from my dealer saying that there's a recall for an OBC firmware update on my 2016. This is a little odd because they already did the OBC firmware update a while ago when it was just a service campaign.

Re: steering wheel volume control weird behaviour

I haven't come across this on mine, but we had similar behaviour on our 2003 Odyssey where it was a bad contact between the buttons and the connector that runs around the wheel. They were using different value resistors to represent the different button pushes, a bit of dirt on the contacts increase...

Yes, you can set how often you get the maintenance reminder in one of the setup menus with the steering wheel buttons.
I've turned mine off and just go to the dealer once a year for them to check it over. I rotate the tyres myself when changing between summer and winter tyres.

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

That's not limiting! :shock:
The Soul is a big square box, not very aerodynamic at all. Put the cruise on at 105km/h on the highway and you will do far better on the range.

Re: Headlights won't come on, everything else works.

Yes, but there are no headlight fuses or relays, not in the manual and not listed in the fuse boxes on the car. I suspect that is from a different version of the car which wasn't so full of CAN buses.
