Re: 2016 Soul EV+ ... is my battery eligible for replacement?

So I think I was originally expecting the battery to be installed by the end of September. It's now November and the replacement battery has just arrived to the "warehouse" and is going to be shipped to the dealer in approximately two weeks. Luckily, given my range issues, the local dealer...

I'm afraid not. I'll try to ask.

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ ... is my battery eligible for replacement?

So update... Soul Spy was most recently reading like 68.5% battery health, and my 42 mile R/T commute, I was coming up with single digit range left sometimes. I took the car to the dealer, and they have approved me for an HV battery replacement!!! Should get here next week and then I can schedule ag...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ ... is my battery eligible for replacement?

Hmmm, today Soul spy is saying 71.7%. At this rate, I'll be ready for a new battery in a couple weeks! I have yet to take it to the dealer. But my commute is about 44 miles round trip so I'm getting perilously close to not being able to make it, especially when winter weather comes. Right now my ran...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ ... is my battery eligible for replacement?

Hmmmm, I thought when I took the car in for a recall (the parking brake thing) they also updated the BMS. So it wouldn't surprise me if I have an updated BMS

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ ... is my battery eligible for replacement?

Thanks--the following day after a full charge, I drove to work and had Soul Spy running. The battery cells looked much more even and no bright red cells. I wonder if when the car is more fully charged the bad cells don't act up as much?? I'm obviously not a battery expert :D

2016 Soul EV+ ... is my battery eligible for replacement?

My 2016 + has a SOH of 76%, but using Soul Spy, I notice a couple cells are bright red. Seems the forum has eliminated the ability to attach photos so I am unable to share. But basically a lot of the cells are 3.74 or 3.72, except for the two bright red ones which are 3.68. Just wondering if I shoul...

I do recall hearing a noise like that when I first got the car. Then I took it in for a recall and they updated the BMS. I haven't heard the noise since.

Re: Creaking/Crunching Over Dips in Cold Weather

Hello, I'm also own a 2016 model (36,000km), and I've noticed similar noises. I suspect the suspensions too. I'm from north of France, and the temperatures here are now below 10°C (50°F). And since yesterday, I also hear a "rubbing"noise from the front left, when I strongly turn the wheel...
