I use Synthetic oil in my 2013 Rio & my Wife's 2015 Soul & don't find I have ever needed a Block Heater.
I also saved $249 dealer installation cost for each car.We ordered our cars so was able to specify NO Block Heater.
I live in balmy Calgary

Did you ever locate the block heater? I have a 2012 same model and have the same problem locating the block heater sleeve that’s located somewhere on the engine block
