Re: New 2018 Soul EV with Onboard Charger Failure

What do you mean by "keep the car after it’s repaired." Do you mean you will need to own it after the lease, or will you still lease it (and then trade it in)?

Re: Turning in a lease - buyout offers, extensions?

I can't really say anything about 1, but for 2 I have some input. KMF really holds their contract to the letter, and your chance in getting some sort of extension is slim. I tried to extended my other KMF lease, and was told no - several time by different reps.

Re: Lease Pricing?

I started my lease in 12/16 for a 2016 EV+ with sunroof and 12K per year miles (in NJ).
Lease Maturity Date: 12/19
My residual value is $12967.60 (USD).

Pricing... to be honest its embarrassing, so I will not say. I had really bad credit at the time so I don't think I need to say more.

Re: Battery temperature

I charged mine throughout the winter, and even in my small garage. I have never heard that fan kick up (just picked up my car in December). This is most likely due to the batteries not getting hot enough, so we will see how this spring/summer plays out.

Re: Technicals Tests on SK-Innovation Battery from the Soul EV Approval.

I kind of have idea what they were talking about, but Google Translate (through youtube) was no help... unless they were talking about pasta, and "Mr. Heat".
