Re: 2014 won't charge AC or Chademo

The early model years seem to have an issue with the OBC which eventually requires replacement. Sorry it's out of warranty, get ready for a sticker shock when you take it into the dealer.. Had to do mine this winter. $4000 when everything was all said and done.

Re: 2016 needs Onboard Charger

I had to replace mine this winter. I was outside of the 160,000km EV powertrain warranty coverage and paid ~$4,000. Double check that claim that you're not covered because you bought it used. Mines used, and was a taxi prior, yet Kia footed the bill when it came to replacing the battery pack under w...

Battery is shot if it's showing that for range. Unless you're able to get it replaced under warranty, pass.

Re: 2017 Soul EV charging issue. Stops on 85%

Any idea how "healthy" your battery is? I suspect you've rarely, if ever, discharged and recharged your battery and thus the BMS hasn't been able to gauge the battery's health until now. Only a guess, but I'd wager your recent long range trip did just that and finally your car has done a b...

Re: Battery Backorder? Since Nov '21

I'd ask your dealer why everyone else didn't have to do that but you do? Frankly if the warranty work has been approved - they don't need your car until the part arrives. So unless they found the battery pack to be unsafe, go get your car. My latest update (today) was the same as previous - no sched...

Re: battery replacement in turtle mode

You've gotten approved for the replacement, they're just struggling to source it for whatever reason. From past memory it seems like they have batches where lots of people were waiting then suddenly they all get resolved around the same time. You might just be in that waiting period and hopefully it...

Re: battery replacement in turtle mode

What has your experience been with battery replacement? I have a confirmed case number for a new battery and have been waiting since early October. I have 50km of range and can only get home from work if I charge at work. Now that EV's are increasing in popularity it becomes a race to the charging ...
