Hi all, new to site as looking through the web regarding a problem with our Soul Connect+ (2014 manual diesel) Brake Pedal.
We had the recall carried out on the first service for the Brake Pedal issue (although we hadn't noticed any problem). A year later we are now experiencing the Brake Pedal not releasing, especially when it's only gently been applied in slow traffic. You can actually put your toe under the pedal and pull it back up to release the brakes. I believe this was the problem that the original recall was for?
Has anyone else noticed this issue? Especially since having the recall carried out. We've already asked our local dealer to check but they said they couldn't find anything wrong. It's booked back in next week and I'll be taking them out in the car but knowledge of anyone else having this problem would be appreciated.

Mine is a 2014 Mixx and I haven't heard anything. Wonder if i should be worried? Could you ask that question when you take it in please.

Cheers

Hi Mark,
This started as an old Post but I resurrected it as having issues with our brake pedal.
Car was taken to our local dealer who checked it out and agreed that the brake pedal was intermittently slow to release and keeping the brakes on slightly.
This is the same issue which was the subject of a "Service Advice" (not a DVLA recall) from Kia last year and our car was check and had a new Pedal Box fitted. Seems the same issue has reoccurred (to our car anyway) so they are ordering another new Pedal Box Assembly to fit to the car to see if the problem disappears.
If you apply the pedal lightly for an inch or two, release it and watch the pedal, you'll see that sometimes it is very slow to come back up, to the extent that you can pull it up with your toe.
Will advise when the parts are fitted if OK.
D&K
PS: We have the issue with the Radio loosing DAB, there is a software upgrade available now but the Dealer advised not to do it as a completely new upgrade is coming out in February. Kia have told them not to do any upgrades until that's available. We're going to have the Pedal Box and Software upgrade done all at the same time next month.

Hello D&K,

Mine is the auto model so I hope that does not have the issue with the pedal?

Good info though as I was going to fire mine in for the infotainment upgrade, but I will hang fire till March now just so I know its okay. (presume that will sort the DAB and mem stick issues and we will get Carplay and the Android one too)

Cheers mate

Hi, Mines in on Mon for the second time, think the problem may be with the pedal freeplay, some times it doesn't fully to top, just enough to work the servo, which is a pain when trickling along in traffic.

We've just received a phone call today from our local dealer who informs us that Kia have asked them not to change the pedal assembly yet but to check certain points on the braking system (which points to the same thing that "eddie632" has mentioned).
The dealer said that Kia told them that there has been other reports of the same fault so I'd be interested to know how many others are having the problem. It might be that others haven't noticed it as is does depend on your driving style, one of us notices the problem the other driver of the car doesn't.
Will keep everyone informed when the car goes in in a couple of weeks.

Had my pedal assembly changed today, free play problem cured.
Braking seems to have more "feel", allthough that could just be me! Big smile
