    rough ride

    hi again !! been enjoying the soul now for a while but went and tried to check my tyre pressures i looked at the sticker by the drivers seat and found the pressures too high all the way round ,( the pump thingy never put any air in so i got my freind to check them for me)could this be why the ride seems quite bumpy over potholes and other bumps any idea what the normal pressure should be for two people running around normal country roads? and maybe a bit of round town? they are the normal tyres not the really big ones ive seen on other souls

    Did your friend adjust to the proper pressure? If not, have someone with a decent tire gauge check the pressure. Then bring it down or up to what is on the doors. Somewhere around 32-35psi, I'd have to go look too.
    Supposedly the cars come in over inflated, and your dealer is supposed to adjust when preparing the car. Maybe they didn't do it. If your dealer is nearby, stop in, they can do it for you. Otherwise, ask one of your friends, someone will be able do it correctly.

    I have a Plus with the 16" tires, and I think the ride is fine. It is no Cadillac, but it certainly doesn't ride like an old truck.
