Posting a little late as I picked up by FE on Friday.

My car was at Covina Valley Kia in Covina, California. I brought the dealer letter, window sticker, and a printout of the program. So first was the test drive, I immediately fell in love! The car is fast, handling on turns is great and there is little to none road noise. Love the parking features, automatic door handles, and spacious interior. UI is quick and responsive just looks a little plain. I mean I'm coming from a Rav4 Hybrid, it's like night and day... Odometer was at 12 miles

A couple of other people were also picking up their FE's. There was no markup but had a protection package. I showed them the letter, they basically said take it or leave it as they could sell it for a markup if I chose not to take it. So when they were typing the paperwork I had to remind them about the $100 deposit. Then the California Clean Fuel Reward gives you $750 off at purchase. They thought it was a year end tax thing so I had to show them the printout that I brought. They put the $850 towards my down, not sure if that was correct. So all including tax and fees came out to around 68,700. I've driven it for around 140 miles so far and have no regrets whatsoever.

I financed through Logix Banking as they had the lowest rate, thanks @jamisonl

Not sure if there are more incentives besides the 7500 fed tax.

We're supposed to get 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) from Electrify America, but I can't seem to get the promo code working.

How many different charging station companies are there? Is there an app for all of them together?

I've purchased a few things that I'm waiting on:

1. The UX-999 Pro, thanks @Cnsheets
UX-999 Pro

2. The center console organizer tray, thanks @smokymtnengineer
Ruiya Organizer

Patiently waiting on more accessories to become available..

Since I have to wait around 45 days for my Level 2 Charger gift, I went ahead and bought a Lectron Level 1 Charger off of Amazon for $199. It's been working, just slow as hell....I started at 5:25pm it was at 65%, then a little over 15 hours later at 9:02 am it was at 93%....

That’s awesome. Congrats. I’m going to end up passing on my Urban Yellow FE and purchasing a GT-Line AWD out of state.

Ive never applied for credit for this large of a purchase. I’m scared and nervous. Should I be? I have a score over 800 and make over 120k. But do have two current auto loans. One would go away with the purchase of the EV6.

Does Logix fund out of state purchases? I do live in California. It would have to become a member. Also looking at PenFed.

Congratulations! Glad you went with Logix! When you applied for the CA HOV did you print and mail the form with a bank check? I couldn’t find a way to apply online.

In terms of the promo code, EA support today told me the program won’t be live till the 17th. There’re some members here who were able to enroll in EA. I was enrolled on Tuesday but now it’s not even in my app. 😢 the WiFi service, by verizon will be activated once the dealership submits the registration w/ version. Then it’s a 3 months 3GB trial plan whichever comes first from what KIA support has mentioned when I submitted a ticket two days ago.

We picked up our FE on Saturday. We were told that the level 2 charger would arrive in 3-4 business days. We were also told that the reason that the car doesn't come with a level one charger is that it would take forever to charger the car. I have a lot of questions about on-the road charging. I'm hoping that at some point there will be no need to subscribe to a charging service and just swipe a credit card to charge, much like at gas stations. Way too complicated. We love the car.

For what it is worth, the dealership offered me 2.49% up to 60 months through KIA. We are picking it up today.

Lucky, I won’t get my charger till 45 days. That’s what my dealer told me since it’s coming directly from corporate. So far the chargers I’ve visited, you can use your credit card. I just download the app since it’s easier for me.

Thanks for the news about paying at a charger. That is my first choice. As for the 45 days thing, I was initially told two to three weeks, Then I had a serious chat with someone who cared and had that changed. You might try that.

Thanks! With your credit score and income you shouldn't be worried, I also had two current auto loans. Logix doesn't do out of state purchase, you would have to finance at the dealer and the refinance with them. Hopefully you can get your car soon, you've been one of the most active members on here!

Thanks. Thats a bummer. Maybe go with PenFed then. I doubt the dealership will be able to offer me any lenders with the same rates. I know Kia is higher for sure. I just hate to have to go through the process multiple times to refinance.

Is the WiFi service worth it after that? What can you do with the WiFi? Is it only with Verizon?

Congrats! Wow let me know if you do get your level 2 charger that quickly that would be awesome. The level 1 does take forever but a little charge is better than no charge right now. The outside charging stations are easy after you setup account and pay information. Just bring out your phone wallet to the machine and it should be automatic. What color is your FE?
