Re: Make your own trunk shelf?

Ha!

Yes, I tossed that shelf and the cargo cover into a closet the day I bought the car almost 5 years ago, and haven't used them since.

Re: color matching the roof and trim

I have the same black-body/red-top color as you, and I like the red accents.

Painting the red roof black might be tricky because the black isn't really a solid black -- it's just got a slight bit of reddish flecks or highlights -- so that might be difficult to match at a paint shop.

Re: 2014-2019 Soul EV Floor Mats

Well, those look nice! Looks like price has dropped to $99.

Since they are "2-ply", do you pull them apart for cleaning, and is that relatively easy?

Re: Good news for buying used in non-compliant state

Congrats on your purchase! I have also found that recalls and general warranty work can be done at any Kia dealer -- not just "EV authorized" ones. But it can take some extra work on my part. Just recently I called my local Kia dealer's service dept, asking if they would handle the latest ...

Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

Thanks for the info. I bought a "KONNWEI KW902 Mini BT Wireless OBD-II" - surprisingly inexpensive - the red one was less than $6 on Amazon, and then purchased Soul EV Spy app (Android only, as you said), and it worked great! It told me I have 63% SOH (State of Health) - below the 70% warr...

Re: Kia Battery Replacement Frustrations [HELP/ADVICE]?

Hi, all. Anybody had a main battery pack replacement under warranty? And how did that go? My 2015 Soul EV, with about 34,000 miles, on a full charge says I only have about 64 miles range - in 70-degree weather. Last year at this time, it would read around 100 miles range. Since 64 is less than 70% o...

Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

Perhaps this is a stupid question, but how do you decide when it is time to replace your battery under warranty? The warranty for my 2015 Kia Soul EV says it will replace the battery when range drops below 70% within first 10 yrs. Mine has almost 35,000 miles on it, and the max Range (after a full c...

Re: 2015 Battery won't charge

I visited a nearby Electrify America charging location, and their CHAdeMO Level 3 system worked! At least this can be a short-term solution until I can get my car repaired to accept Level 2 charging again. Thanks!

2015 Battery won't charge

One morning I noticed my car wasn't fully charged, using my Level 2 charger in my garage. Never had a problem before, but now when I plug it my ChargePoint EVSE, the dash lights flash as if charging has started, but I hear clicks every 5 or 10 seconds (sounds as if the charging process is being inte...

Re: Just picked up Soul EV 2020 Limited

Thanks for the info! It sounds like a lot of new/improved features, and very few (other than folding mirrors) deleted features. I have a 2015 Soul EV, and thinking of upgrading to the 2020 when it becomes available in the US. How was your buying experience? I assume you bought from dealer inventory ...
