Vehicle: 2010 Kia Soul ! (U.S. Model) 5-Spd Manual, Disc/Disc brakes
This might fall under the category of "User Error" but I need to look somewhere.
Twice in the last 6 months my wife has had to call roadside assistance because in her words "the car won't move". Both times I have had her on the phone (freaking out) and it sounds to me like the emergency brake is frozen. She says she can get it to move backwards a little but she revs it so much it starts smelling like clutch (I can only imagine how hard she's pushing it).
She says the parking brake lever is fully released, there are no lights on the dash and the engine runs fine. Of course by the time it gets to the dealer there is no problem and the car rolls fine!
It happened again last night, this time she went back inside for a few hours to see if it would go away. She finally gave up and called roadside, they arrived an hour later and car rolled perfectly (of course).
I have never been able to reproduce the problem nor has it ever happened to me. The car has 35,000 miles.
Has anyone had this happen on the rear disc brake Kia Soul??
