So the answer to my questions is: no?

Re: Do I have a chance?

The dealer has nothing to gain by frustrating a chance for a new battery. He gets paid by KIA for fitting it. It is simply a question of getting the technician to understand the issue. Care to explain my experience then? I had more than 10 visits and had to call corporate myself to get it moved for...

Re: Do I have a chance?

I also suspect once you'll need to recalibrate again after they get a reading below 70% since they like to "update" the BMS to "fix" the issue which resets the SoH to 110%. So you may have to do this twice within your warranty coverage. That has happened, but is expressly forbid...

Re: Do I have a chance?

Sure, but to what lengths are you willing to go? Basically park that thing with a low state of charge and wait until the spring. You're not going to get an updated SoH until: -Outside temp is 10C or higher -You cycle the battery in a particular way to perform a battery recalibration The cycle needs...

Re: 2016 Unable to Charge

Dealership was able to get a look at it today and it's the onboard charger. All in: $3200..

Out of warranty, but hopeful that I can escalate with Kia Canada and get either a full courtesy replacement, or at least them willing to cover the part. Will update.

Re: 2016 Unable to Charge

2016 Unable to Charge

As per title I noticed today that despite being plugged into my home charger and displaying the charging lights accordingly, the car wouldn't actually start charging and quits a few minutes later. No error messaged displayed, and after a few attempts I figured that perhaps with the winter storm we'v...

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

Why resurrect a 2 year old dead thread when you've already started your own topic, only to say basically the same thing/not add anything of value to this thread?

Can we not? Thanks.
