Re: buying a used 2016 kia soul from carvana - does this look right

i suspect that I would rule this car out based upon that picture, but if you can arrange a test drive you may be able to see the Battery SOH using an app and an OBD dongle. of course, the easiest way to know the capacity is to arrange a test drive of at least 20 miles in a straight line. highway mil...

Re: Battery Backorder? Since Nov '21

Congratulations Mdbuilder, It gives the rest of us hope. I Took my car into two dealers. The first that just reset the battery and delayed everything for a few months sent me a letter this month that [due to the increase in demand and price for fuel efficient cars] they would like to buy my EV from ...

Re: Battery Backorder? Since Nov '21

I am in the same boat. It has only been 6 weeks, but no contact and no follow up yet.

Re: 2017 Soul battery degradation story

After a few more attempts to get the EV looked at by a dealer I finally got it verified. They told me the pack is being assembled overseas and they will let me know when it ships. I kept the vehicle as I do not want to drive a ICE for months. I can get to work and back with about 10-20% left. I have...

Re: 2017 Soul battery degradation story

@IanL
thanks, I will try in another week. With the cold weather coming, I was hoping to get it resolved before the range decreases more.

Re: 2017 Soul battery degradation story

It has been 14 days since the BMS reset at the dealer which returned the GOM to 110 miles at 100% and the GOM now shows 65 miles at 100% I attempted to use SoulEVSpy today and got "unknown deterioration and all of the battery cells except one is blank. The manual says: Q: Why does the car show ...

Re: 2017 Soul battery degradation story

Good advice. in a couple weeks the range on the GOM should show a more accurate estimation of range and I will do that.

2017 Soul battery degradation story

I Bought a 2017 Soul EV + in 2019. The first year or so I got about 100 miles of range which got me to work and back twice. [46 round trip] I like the car and want to keep it, but the range was showing 56 miles when 100 miles after charging. I have a 1500 foot elevation gain as I return home so it i...

Re: How to estimate SoH for Buying Used

I bought a used 2017 with sun and fun package. the sunroof is not worth extra in my opinion. It is just a seal that can leak in the future. I tried to get two different dealers to test the battery to get a SOH. one actually pulled it into the service area, but when the mechanic realized I was wantin...
