Re: Accelerating as much as possible as often as possible ok?

Also, anyone know if a fully charged Soul EV accelerates faster than a 30% charged Soul EV?

Accelerating as much as possible as often as possible ok?

So in an ICE I'd very rarely put the pedal to the metal because all that spinning up of the engine at every stop light would surely degrade the engine fast. However, given the simplicity of the motor in the Kia Soul EV (2017) and the lack of gears etc I have been tempted to simply press the accelera...

Re: Can't find certified Soul Ev. 5 mile commute make it unnecessary?

They ended up redoing the purchase contract to explicitly state the manufacturers warranty was intact and transferred to me so I bought it for $16k after all taxes etc. Stevensmarkd you're probably right but it was a car right in my hometown randomly and I couldn't afford to spend more time shopping...

Re: Can't find certified Soul Ev. 5 mile commute make it unnecessary?

If the Soul EV has a manufacturers warranty it would be appropriate to mark that box rather than the "as is-no warranty". It is illegal to mark the "as is-no warranty" box if there is a manufacturers warranty and visa versa. Either they accidentally checked the no warranty box an...

Re: Can't find certified Soul Ev. 5 mile commute make it unnecessary?

Update:Local dealer fixed all the dents etc and claimed to have verified that the warranty on battery was in effect until 2027. They presented me a "warranty coverage validation" headered paper with the VIN etc. At signing state of Wisconsin has boxes on one of the forms saying "Exten...

Thanks a lot to all of you! That's why I'm here doing the research as car salesmen can't be trusted.

Thanks Mark! Did your friends that did returns on Carvana have to eat the delivery fees or did they just pay the 1 delivery fee and get 3 cars delivered back and forth? Thanks!

Re: Can't find certified Soul Ev. 5 mile commute make it unnecessary?

I really liked the beat up soul ev I tested (I can only imagine an average used soul EV would be even nicer), but the Volkswagen egolfs 8 year warranty is so much more clearly applicable and advertised that I'm thinking it'd be more valuable to me to know for certain what warranty I have for 2 years...

Re: Can't find certified Soul Ev. 5 mile commute make it unnecessary?

Thanks all. Understood the 10 year warranty has been posted elsewhere, but there are many other threads on this site ( https://www.mykiasoulev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1567 ) that show people uncertain whether the warranty is valid due to lack of every maintenance record or due to sale acro...

Re: Can't find certified Soul Ev. 5 mile commute make it unnecessary?

Thanks again stevensmarkd. My local kia dealer swore if they didnt certify it that it came with no warranty. What kia owners website do you speak of? How were you bold enough to buy a carvana car that didn't advertise the warranty and somehow know it existed as I cant find any literature but forum p...
