Every Soul EV that has gone to Arizona has suffered severe battery degradation. There is an old thread about this.
Arizona SOUL EV Heat testing
My advice. Do not buy a Soul EV in Arizona.
I had read that thread before purchasing.
I do not regret buying a Soul EV in Arizona. Mark Kia at least handles EV servicing rather than having to transport vehicle to Palm Springs, which was a huge factor in deciding to purchase a used "Compliance Car."
As long as it is covered by the Factory 10 year 100,000 mile Warranty and Dealer is providing a loaner vehicle for the length of repair...it seems like a much better deal than a used Leaf, Fiat 500e, E Golf, or Focus Electric alternative within the same price range. (Toyota RAV4 EV was almost twice as expensive used with no factory warranty.)
Hoping things will be different with upcoming liquid cooled Niro EV & Soul EV.
