    2014 Soul ! Whole Shabang

    2014 Soul Exclaim with Whole Shebang - New Owner!

    Hi Fellow Soul Lovers,

    I am proud owner of a 2014 Soul Exclaim with the Whole Shebang package, All Weather Mats and Cargo Mat. I just brought her home and I am in love.

    Below are a few pics - I know they are pathetic, will get better pics tomorrow.

    I posted my first impressions in another thread but can add more info here.

    My experience at the dealer was fine. Soul was not fully prepped when I arrived but they did wash, take off the stickers and plastic, and fill the tank with gas. The salesman did not know much about the Soul - he had not seen an Exclaim with Whole Shebang before so he did not know much about it. However, that means I get to read the manual cover to cover - my favorite thing!

    I did select the Black color to join two other Black vehicles in the stable.

    Items I am loving so far: Power Folding Mirrors, Heated Steering Wheel, Infotainment screen (there is a ton I need to figure out how to use), and sound system. One item cleared up: the LED Positioning Lights - Jewel are not DRLs. They only work when the lights are on.

    Only have approximately 45 miles on it!

    I am happy to answer any questions about features or function since it is the Exclaim with Whole Shebang.

    Thanks so much, John

    That's my boy, good luck with your new ride. You may have to get rid of those "fancy" cars once the Soul gets a bite into you and the wife

    That bike in the garage is going be wasted now. Storing it for when your son grows up?

    that's great, it didn't take you all that long to get your new set of wheels, now you will have to change/add this info to your DRIVES profile

    So its looks like the positioning lights function the same as on the Canadian models. I'm sure you will be able to answer many other questions as very few of us have seen the top model. I'm also sure you will find lots of good info when you get through the owners manual, a lot of owners seem to omit doing that.

    2. I thought the Canadian models functioned like true DRLs - on all the time?
    3. There is a lot to learn with this vehicle, very happy.
    4. You are right - I did not wait long. This one was on the lot 2 days - no it lives with me.

    What is an owner's manual?

    Oh my, just walked out to see her with the fob in my pocket and the mirrors folded out to greet me! No lights came on but the mirrors folded out.

    thanks, I wonder which of your vehicle you will end of driving the most

    no, DRL's are separate to the positioning lights here in Canada, but not sure on the 2014 at this point which is the DRL and also it could vary by model. On my 2012 model the DRL uses the high beam on low power

    I thought DRLs were required in the U.S. but I guess not. I would like to have them on all the time like on the Optima as those are true LED DRLs.

    Just a law in Canada but not in the US but many manufacturers do provide them on some models, but it appears to be a hit and miss as to who does it.
