Re: Preparing to Part Ways with My Soul EV

Thanks for the info. I meant standard range plus for the Model 3. I'm going to test drive both this weekend. I test drove the Niro EV a few weeks ago and I really liked it (compared to my Soul EV). I looked at the Model 3 in the showroom and was impressed with the minimalist interior, but not sure i...

Re: 2016 Soul EV: Do you say a Good Buy? Or a Goodbye?

The key factor is how you drive and where you drive. I got my 2016 Soul EV, brand new in November 2015. I drove at freeway speeds (65+mph) in the HOV Lanes daily, 70 miles round-trip (no traffic in HOV Lanes). Charged the battery to 100% daily (because I needed the full charge for my daily commute)....

Preparing to Part Ways with My Soul EV

Purchased my 2016 Soul EV in late 2015. Love the car. Had one major battery problem, which took months to resolve, but resulted in a new factory battery and things have been great since. Almost at 60k miles and still running great. Now it's come time to say goodbye. Once again, I love the car, but t...

Re: Rotten smell (Air conditioning drain clogged?)

Sorry, I don't know about the A/C drain, but have you replaced the cabin air filter? A while back, in another of my cars, there was a weird, damp smell and replacing the cabin air filter fixed it.

Re: Getting a New Battery...Eventually

Update: It's been a little over a month on the new battery and it is performing well. Identical to when the car was brand new. Out of the dealer, GOM was displaying around 105 @ 100% charge. After a couple of weeks of my driving, GOM dropped to 95 miles @ 100% charge and it's pretty much held at 95 ...

Re: Getting a New Battery...Eventually

Just an update: I got my car back from the dealer today. They called me yesterday to tell me they got the battery pack and had it installed today. Only took 76 days!
Next step, talk to the corporate guy and see what "good will options" they'll offer me.

Re: Getting a New Battery...Eventually

Thanks Jeju. That was a very interesting read. Not sure why my battery is taking so long compared to Kish.

Re: 2015 Soul EV: My Battery Replacement Story

Very interesting read. Thank you. I'm currently in the process of getting a new battery on my 2016 Soul EV. I don't have all the data you have. I'm in Los Angeles area and do mostly freeway speeds, about 70 miles roundtrip per day. I'm the original owner of my vehicle. In about January, I noticed no...

Re: Getting a New Battery...Eventually

I was showing low 70s/high 60s on the GOM and that was close to realistic for my driving.

Getting a New Battery...Eventually

2016 Soul EV, purchased. 41k miles. Range way down. Take it to the dealer for a battery check and they run their tests and tell me the EV battery needs to be replaced. This was at the beginning of April. It's now the end of May and I don't have my car back. Dealer tells me battery is back-ordered an...
