Re: Did any owner drove a KIA Soul for more than 80,000 Miles on the same battery ?

I have 78,000 kms and i have lost quite a high % of battery power. A full charge would get me about 179km range at the beginning, now a full charge gets me 94 km of range.

Re: Charging Fault error.

the part number is different from the last OBC that was replaced. I think there might be a recall soon.

Re: Charging Fault error.

Since they changed the OBC I have had no more issues with the car. As far as range is concerned, I now get approximately 105 KM per charge....

Re: Charging Fault error.

Wow, $9,400? That's crazy. Quite the markup... BTW, how did you become aware of the cost to Kia?

Can you imagine having these problems if you bought the car and the warranty is up, YIKES! :o Still love my car though. As soon as Kia comes up...
