So in your opinion do you think this was a purely an IVT firmware oops or a combination of firmware/hardware.Haven't had one fail that has the update just yet. For the poster asking how to find out just call your dealer with the VIN number and they can tell you if update has been done or if it needs one.
Thanks for the reply, I'll keep watching for updates!Some are brand new and some are remanufactured. I don't know that there actually is a difference we just often have a different part number when there is a recall that we have to use and that's on many different parts but that doesn't mean they are different it just they could be different. Sometimes it's just in the logistics process as a recall part is going to be stocked different throughout the country as they anticipate a large amount to be replaced so it might get a different part number just for the logistics, I'm totally speculating as that's far above my pay grade.
I questioned that also and I raised my concerns about the rear brakes wearing our sooner. I will be keeping an eye on it. I do drive a lot for my work and lots of freeway travel but I do not pound the brakes and I get 40 mpg most of the time.Just the rear brakes not the front also?
Sounds like a stuck caliper, or the mechanic needed to make a house payment!I would have to echo the comment by vindex1963.
If the braking system is working properly, the rear brakes on a Soul should not need replacing till somewhere OVER 50,000 miles. Are the front brakes even Working? Maybe NOT! I'd check on that.
I put new front shoes (Wagner Ceramics) on my 2013 Soul at about 60k, and the back shoes were still good.
Speaking of what's ridiculous, until just recently, Rock Auto was showing several different brands of rear brake shoes for the 2020 Soul, but none for the front. WTF? Even "Wagner"* was showing nothing for the front of the 2020 Soul, in their own catalog.
* Wagner is a major manufacturer of brakes and replacement brake parts.
It sure does but if he is in a cold weather salt using state what I find is the pads themselves get seized in the hardware or the pad material breaks off from the backing due to corrosion, seen this on dozens of Gen2 but haven't come across on a Gen3Sounds like a stuck caliper, or the mechanic needed to make a house payment!
Fronts are larger and vented discs while rears are small with solid discs, most Souls are ready for front and rear not that far apart. In mixed driving 45-50k is where I see the most but I have done them on cars that are older and only driven short distances at lower mileage. I even did one at 107k on original brakes but that was a salesman who drove lots of highway miles.You should go through 2 sets of front to one set rear. Front brakes handle 70% braking and 30% rear.
Yeah right next to the performance giant wing spoilers that add such great benefits of downforce on street cars that never see a track.Thanks bwdz75. Vented rotors refer to the rotor casting type. Got it.
Man, there is a lot of confusing and contradictory information on rotors out there. For example, Rockauto.com lists the most expensive rotors as "Performance (Improved Stopping Power)". They are all drilled and slotted. I could readily imagine an uninformed vehicle owner concerned with safety buying these.
Actually that’s incorrect the 2020s were cvt when they released the 2021 they went to ivt more issues then anything with cvt that’s why they went to ivt and I know this because I spoke to our salesman about all of itLooking at NHTSA complaints and other online complaints about IVT failures, one common factor seems to be that they occur at low total miles. The 2020 KIA Souls have been available to buyers since about June of 2019. We bought ours on August 3, and are just coming up on 3000 miles on the odometer, with no IVT problems. Looking at reports from 2019 KIA Forte models, the same low mileage failures seem to be in effect. So, here's my question for this forum: How many miles are on your 2020 Soul with the IVT transmission? It's still early in the model year, but there must be many owners who have put a substantial number of miles on their Souls. Let's hear from you.
