Compact Spare Tire Options

I know the Soul EV doesn't come with a spare tire, but has anyone out there purchased a compact spare tire for emergency use? If so, where did you get it?

Sending Audio from Waze Android App to Car Speakers

Perhaps I'm missing something obvious, but if I connect my Android phone via Bluetooth to the Soul EV, I can successfully hear audio from phone calls through the car's speakers, but I cannot hear audio at all from any phone app, such as Waze. In order to hear the instructions from Waze, I have to tu...

Re: New 2018 Soul EV has arrived...with a cavaet

Yes, finally! And they advertise a range of 111 miles, up from 2017's 93 miles, an increase of around 19%. I guess they plan to continue making Soul EVs until the Niro EV eventually replaces it? Just saw at this year's CES that Kia is showing the Niro EV "concept" car, which means it's pro...

Re: Charging Stuck At 99%

I noticed the same thing. While parked and charging at an outdoor charging station, my phone app said the car was 96% charged, and would be complete within 1/2 hour. I visited the charger 1/2 hour later, and it was still charging. It was also still charging another 1/2 hour later. The phone app both...

Re: Soul EV Recall

I bought my 2015 Soul EV in Georgia, and have since moved to Raleigh, NC. I've been getting service recall notices regarding the steering wheel. I've taken the car to the two local Kia dealers, and neither of them will touch the car - even though the steering wheel is the same as in the Soul ICE car...

Re: (D)rive vs. (B)rake

B mode seems to help me quite a bit with range. For instance, I'll start with a range gauge value of, say 107, drive 10 miles on B mode, and the gauge might say 103, when it should say only 97. I think the range gauge drops faster in D.

Re: Favorite Car Colors?

Custom paint job on the roof? I like that they painted the white portions of the wheels black.

Re: 2016 soul ev recalls

I took my 2015 Soul EV to my local Raleigh Kia dealer for a tire rotation, and the service guy said "Hey, you've got two recalls. We'll fix them while you're here today, no charge." But after half an hour he returned, saying "Sorry, we're not authorized to do the recall repair work.&q...
