So I am going to buy a 2016 Soul EV+ soon (probably next week or two), but I was worried about getting service if I needed it because I live in a non-compliance state (Florida). I called around and it turns out I had nothing to worry about: Two Kia dealerships near me I contacted said that they actually offer service, including warranty stuff. So, if you're thinking of buying but have this worry in the back of your mind, you're fine!
This is my first post. I hope to have many others as I've been DYING to buy an EV for years now but couldn't swing the price on a brand new one. I was also worried about not having hundreds of miles of range, but review after review after review on YouTube and other places has shown me that this is not really something to be concerned with. I live about 10 miles from my job and the only place I visit from time to time is my parents' house about 40 miles away: Well within range. And I am SOOOO done with repairs once or twice a year on my ICE car.
Anyway, just thought I would share the information above in case anyone is concerned about this: Just call or text a few of your local dealerships to see if they do service if you live in a non-compliance state.
