    My first Kia

    Hi All--

    Lots of great information in this Forum. After almost 3 decades of van ownership we just took possession of a former Hertz rental 2016 Soul + and are enjoying the ride.

    Had prepared to do some salvage yard picking to get a spare, but was pleasantly surprised to find a temp spare with jack, wrench, and tow bar in the back. Do all 2016s come with spares?

    My car came with only one fob/switchkey so I am waiting for a new fob/blank key (unnamed online auction site) to arrive and need to find a local locksmith to "laser-cut" the key and program the fob--the guy in the local Kia Dealer parts department was rather clueless regarding how their keys get cut or where the keyless remotes get programmed.

    Also would like to add aftermarket LED DRLs--just need to decide where to install them--looks like owners have installed them in different locations.

    Look forward to visiting this site often.

    Thank you for the welcome--I guess I should consider the spare tire as a consolation gift for only having one key/fob!

    That is a much better gift than
    getting the Boobie prize. . . I think!?

    Glad you found the Kia Soul Forums.

    2014 Soul ! Whole Shabang
    KIA SOUL is The Highest Quality Car In Class... So Says JD POWER..<:-))

    Welcome To The Family...<:-))

    2016 Kia Soul Pricing, Specs & Reviews | J.D. Power Cars

    Kia ranks highest in initial quality with a score of 83 PP100, the first time in 27 years that a non-premium brand has topped the rankings. It is also the second consecutive year that Kia, which ranked second in 2015, has led all non-premium makes in initial quality.
