Staff Car Update – The Soul EV Gets Recalled (again)

From Transport Evolved.

Kate’s Soul EV has been waiting for the results of the Kia battery recall, and this past week it went to the dealership for the fix. What happened, and why is Kate now facing yet another recall?

Note: There is some rustling on the mic due to a positioning issue. Kate apologises for this error.
