Re: January Software Update a Good Thing?

I got this email from Kia this morning: "In case you've updated your vehicle's software and noticed limited UVO capabilities, an update that improves such capabilities has been made available on myuvo.com. This update is optional and does not affect your vehicle's support for Apple CarPlay™ or ...

Re: Painting the rims

Wow Ever! What a huge improvement this is. Thanks for bringing this to life in a terrific video that both proves the point and also makes it clear how simple a change this is to do! As goofy as the white wheels look, I had -- thinking the white could not be easily changed -- persuaded myself that th...

Re: Creaking sound in the front

I often get a noise that sounds more like snapping or cracking than creaking. It comes at random times, but it seems to me to be most associated with sudden movements of the body, as when entering or exiting a sharp corner or doing rapid acceleration or deceleration. I hear it as coming from either ...

Re: Cargo area cover?

Sounds like you bought the base level Soul EV. Great car, and a great value -- but unfortunately you only get the cargo cover if you buy the higher trim level, the EV+. See this site for which things come standard or as options with each of the two different trim levels: http://www.kia.com/us/en/veh...

Re: Jeju EV Rally

Apologies for my newbie mistakes. :) And I am a newbie: to this forum, to the Kia Soul EV, and to the Kia brand. If you had asked me even two months ago if I would ever consider owning a Kia I would have laughed at the very idea. Now, one month in to my ownership of a 2016 Kia Soul EV, I am not asha...

Re: Jeju EV Rally

Thanks for sharing this report. Really interesting. The i3's slight efficiency advantage over the Soul EV pretty much matches what I have experienced. Over 2 years of driving my former i3 I averaged 4.2 miles per kWh, and so far after one month in my new Soul EV I am averaging 3.9 miles per kWh. But...

Re: Level 1 Charger Cord Stolen

@tiburonh: Yes, I'm in Hollywood and I guess that's a sleazy enough place that thieves figured someone would want my hot EVSE. The first good news is that I've now explored my garage and found a 125v subpanel there with three available slots for new circuits. That means I only need a two-pole 40a b...

My plan is to use it on the 20a circuit my ga...
