Re: L.A. Auto Show Media Day Crasher + Photos

I've posted one more photo, of the info card in front of the sole Soul EV on display. It has a VIN in the upper right hand corner, clearly not matching it; shows a color combo of Gravity Gray/Platinum Gold, with Gloss Black side mirrors. To somewhat answer Kish's question, it does have front/back He...

L.A. Auto Show Media Day Crasher + Photos

I suppose it was the excitement of seeing the next generation Soul EV that I can use as an excuse for being an idiot. I bought a ticket online and had time this afternoon to drive downtown in the rain, knowing Thursday would be less crowded than the weekend. I passed through security and headed for ...

Re: New owner thank you and questions...

Just to complete the missing tow covers topic; nine days after the email from the service dept. they called to say they have new ones. The tech said they always arrive at the dealership installed, not stowed somewhere in the car. They ordered new ones and had them painted (he said there was some dis...

Re: New owner thank you and questions...

tractioninc, The dealer had it for a week after it was transported from Kia's Port Hueneme facility. The tow hooks themselves have been obviously used looking at the residue on the threads. The obvious place to store the covers would be in the foam tray holding the hooks. It's not that big a car and...

Re: New owner thank you and questions...

Thank you for all the clock responses, now I understand. Very nice large analog clock as screensaver; but, I was hoping to see a small version on the radio and media screens. Digital readout saves space.

Re: New owner thank you and questions...

I just double-checked to make sure; even removed the foam tray that holds the fix-a-flat/compressor, looked under the seats and under the hood. Not sure why they would ship it with them removed (has anybody seen them direct from the ship with or without them installed?), think it's possible it slipp...

Re: New owner thank you and questions...

This forum works miracles. Immediately after my first post, this reply from the S.O. Kia service manager appeared in my inbox:
"I will order you the missing tow cover, once it arrives we'll send to body shop to color match paint, I will let you know when is back to be ready to install."

New owner thank you and questions...

A sincere thank you to all the members whose many dozens of helpful posts I read before deciding on the Soul EV! This forum was at the top of the list for online research tools. I picked it up last Saturday night and couldn't be happier with it's performance and very fun driving experience. I could ...
