Re: brakes failed

I'll definitely give that a try, sounds like a halfway decent way around it.

Re: brakes failed

For me the moral of the story is never use Neutral . If you're waiting in a queue, use D or B. The computer knows you've got your foot on the brake so it's not straining the motor or anything. And if you're actually stopped, use P (and maybe apply the EPB). Would be easier if they hadn't added that...

Dealership said it is a bad 12v battery and they are looking for a replacement. Hopefully they can find one soon.

Re: Car won't start :cry:

I do leave it in the "On" position (green car light with arrows) when I'm sitting in it running the stereo and AC, but the last time I did that was 5 days ago and I have driving it on 11 trips since then, well over 100 miles. It had been off in my garage, plugged into the wall with the fac...

Car won't start :cry:

So Sunday we go to the zoo, about 15 miles away, and I charge on a blink L2 charger while we are at the zoo and she makes it home with no problem. Plug her in with the factory L1 charger at home and there she sat until this morning. Doors unlock normally with the button on the handle, but when I get...

Re: Texas Soul EV owners

So I finally saw another Soul EV owner in Houston. It was a Blue/White at Fairbanks and Beltway. I honked and waved, but don't think I got his attention. Hope to see him here soon!

Re: No Free Android Auto or Apple Carplay for Canada

Just curious, has anyone contacted MNSoft to see if they can provide just the firmware update? They have a live chat at the bottom of the page https://www.kia-gpsmap.ca/

Re: Kia Exploding Sunroof Lawsuit

I have the 2016 Sun'n'Fun package so I'd be interested if anyone finds out if this was corrected.

Re: Transporting 2 or more bikes

There are only a few body differences between the ICE and EV versions of the Soul. The only difference on the rear hatch that I am aware of is slightly different tail lights which should not make any difference for the mount.

Re: Kia Soul EVs in Texas

It's actually Round Rock Kia and it's where I got mine from and I live in Houston so about the same distance. I found out later that there was a closer dealership, but they only have 2015s and there appears to be no way to search to see who has the 2015s, only the 2016s. Try and see if any of the de...
