    Yeah, the title is correct. The trans, at 103,000, is DONE apparently. I thought it was wheel bearing, but's the center diff in the transaxle. $2700....and then you only get a 12k mile warranty on the damn thing. I can't believe it. The car was well maintained and driven regularly...

    Hi all. I'm looking to buy a 2010 Kia Soul Sport(2.0 liter)with 110,000 miles on it. It has 4 new tires and the timing belt and water pump were just replaced by a Kia dealership. Can anyone give me an idea as to how well these vehicles do beyond 100,000 miles? My Toyota Prius is still running...

    This got buried in another warranty-related thread so I thought I’d highlight it in its own thread. I think a lot of 3rd owners are potentially leaving thousands of miles/several years of warranty coverage unclaimed because this doesn’t seem to be common knowledge. CPO owners get the remainder...

The dealer told him he needed a new clutch and should replace the starter at the same time: $1800. An independent shop with a good reputation has no idea why the suggest replacing the...

    Just wondering if anyone has gotten to 200,000 miles or more on the original engine. I have not seen any with that many miles for sale or used?

    I took my 2012 Soul in for servicing recently right at 30,000 miles. I replaced the wiper blades, air filters myself and had the dealership do their inspections, rotate tires and replace the oil. Now the dealer is asking for $300 to finish the 30,000 mile service. Which from what they say is...

    Hello, Soulmates: Yes, yes, I know, way overdue to get the timing belt replaced -- but I have a date to do that tomorrow. What else really ought to be examined / replaced in conjunction with this operation? Water pump, tensioner, idler pulley, etc.? I've searched and seen this topic broached...

    Today I just hit 50,000 miles in my 2012 ! . So far I have just had regular oil changes and new air/cabin filters. Original Nexen tires/tyres are still going strong. I continue to be impressed with this car.

    I met a "SOUL - mate" yesterday, who told my that he was recently at the dealer and they had posted a "scheduled" 15K mileage maintenance. He didn't exactly say what it entailed but he DID say he would have to visit 3 banks to pay for it. Anyone heard of anything like this?
