    Part Wanted WTB. Outside rear view mirrors?

    Anyone have a pair of outside Soul rear view mirrors to sell? All the EV mirrors that I know of have the turn signal lens light inside. I'd want all black or white top and black bottom. LMK.

    Buying a used Soul EV? You should know about KeySavvy!

    KeySavvy let's you buy a used Soul EV from a private party and take advantage of the Fed Tax credit of 30% of the purchase price up to $4k. Total cost for their service is $158 - $79 from the seller and $79 from the buyer. Used them and highly recommend them!

    Questions about purchasing a 2016 Soul EV.

    I'm buying it. The used EV credit was too much to pass up! You can get the credit from a private party sale with KeySavvy. There's also no limit to the number of new batteries you can get if it should crap out later down the road and this vehicle didn't go into service until 2017 so I am also...

    Questions about purchasing a 2016 Soul EV.

    Thanks for the input. If the seller gets the recall done and it's fine for a few days while I buy it but then acts up later, it really won't have confirmed it's working correctly for more than a few days.

    Questions about purchasing a 2016 Soul EV.

    So updating my situation, still trying to decide. I am considering a 2016 with 37k miles, replacement 4200R battery 24 months ago that has worked fine for 14k miles since and the carfax shows an open recall for the BMS which others are claiming will compromise the battery efficiency and lead to...

    Questions about purchasing a 2016 Soul EV.

    Again, it already has a replacement E4200R battery. It's worked fine for 14k miles and nearly two years. So does a E400 recall even matter to me? Warm climate, USA.

    Questions about purchasing a 2016 Soul EV.

    The replacement E4200 battery seems to have added the extra range and it's not subject to recall that I'm aware of.

    Questions about purchasing a 2016 Soul EV.

    Questions. 1) I'm about to buy my second 2016 EV (my first was a three year lease with no issues) this used one has 37k miles for sale from the second owner. KIA replaced the entire battery under warranty at 23k miles in 2022 at the six year mark because the range was down to 26 miles. Work...

    Soul EV CarPlay Update File

    For those of you that live in Korea can you check with a dealer there and find out how much they charge for the Soul EV OEM wheel, black with white centers, like your vehicles have? I possibly want to buy 4 of them and ship them to Hawaii. Many thanks. I have the 9.5 update and can possibly help...

    700 Miles and A/C is no longer blowing COLD.

    Dealer just informed me there is a slow coolant leak at the expansion valve. They need special tools and equipment to fix it and will have to order in the parts and then fly in a tech from Oahu to do the work. Meanwhile, they are giving me a Soul non-EV loaner.

    700 Miles and A/C is no longer blowing COLD.

    What is the cause of the problem and what did they do to fix it?

    700 Miles and A/C is no longer blowing COLD.

    2016 EV+ with 750 miles and I noticed just today that at the lowest 62F temperature setting the A/C is now just blowing medium cool, not the cold it was originally. I just updated to 9.5 on my vehicle's system computer, could this have contributed in any way to the corresponding A/C...
