I have to give all you folks serious props for being early adopters and doing KIA's QC in the field for them when they should have done it at the factory.
What are you talking about?
First, we have yet to see an actual report on a car with "failed" brakes to see what (if anything) went wrong.
Second, what whine? I own a 2016 Soul EV and it is the quietest car I've ever owned or driven.
Third, QC? Zero issues with mine. Every car, especially first gen, will have some issues. That's what the warranty is for. OBC issues experienced by some, which were covered under warranty and replaced with a newer version unit, hopefully of a more robust design. It's not like the Leaf, or any other car for that matter, didn't have a few issues on the first model.
Please don't spread FUD, especially if you've nothing to contribute and don't actually have any experience with one of these cars.
