    Car stuck at dealer for 3 months awaiting warranty battery replacement (2017 Soul EV)

    Got mine back on Wednesday after 4 months. The range says 80 because it hasn't been able to reset yet - but I drove over 100 on a charge and had 10 left to go. Woohoo! Glad the update seems to be working.

    Car stuck at dealer for 3 months awaiting warranty battery replacement (2017 Soul EV)

    The whole process seems super weird. My battery had good SOH and seemed solid but after I had the battery harness replaced on warranty it went into turtle mode.

Did the recall on the battery harness and went into turtle mode the next day - dealership suggested it was unrelated even though it was the next day but reset the software and that seemed to fix things. 6 weeks later when it got cold out it went into turtle mode again - I...

    IMHO Lease and NEVER buy

    As the recipient of someone else who had your experience, I can say that as the buyer of a 2015 Kia Soul EV in 2020 for 10K - and the car is now eligible for a new battery replacement under warranty I feel like I got a great deal. I think not buying new is an important caveat to your post -...

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

    I have had almost the exact same situation. Went to the dealer with a 45-48 mile range at full and a 67% on soul spy. The dealer first reset the battery which was very annoying - and I waited a couple of weeks for recalibration - and went back to the dealer ready to fight and insist that they...
