Harder to isolate problems

I have a 2017 EV and it I staying to turn off the car and check the brakes but the brakes are fine. It's seems there is no way to turn of this warning or drive the car. The car has been down and even the dealer doesn't know what it is... electric cars make it harder to isolate the problem.

It's Electric, but it's a real car...

Car has plenty of features, and I have had my golf clubs and 5 full-grown adults in it going out for dinner...didn't lose a one. In addition it has a magnificent panoramic roof with a moon roof, which is outstanding. Heated steering wheel, heated / cooled seats, and a host of features I still haven't figured out yet. Switch to electric has been easy - if you've got a cell phone or a FitBit you're used to having to plug them in to recharge the battery. I now just do the same thing with my car. Total trips to the gas station in the past month? Zero. So cool

My Second Soul EV+

Just turned in my first Soul EV (lease was up), and replaced it with a new leftover 2017 of the same model. Kia engineers did an incredible job converting the existing Soul into a full EV. The 2017 is the third model year for their EV, and it seems a little tighter and better insulated from road and wind noise. Could stand more power and stronger regen for braking, but such improvements will probably not show up until the Niro EV does.

So far very pleased

We were looking for car to get around the city and this was perfect fit. Wanted to learn about electric vehicles and the Kia Soul EV has been great way to do so.

Fun to drive, does great in the snow!

I was surprised how roomy this car is inside for a smaller vehicle. It also has a long sunroof which will be great in the summer. Absolutely love this car!

Enjoying my new EV ride

Driving this EV car, my first attempt at full battery power, is a transforming experience. Quiet and smooth ride is wonderful. This car has all the functions that are now expected in a new vehicle including navigation and comfort accoutrements.
