    Just got a 2012 Soul Base 6-spd manual w/80k miles (we used to call base models 'strippers', but that sounds like too much fun) and like any used car I went thru the manual to see what I have to do now. I want to replace the transaxle oil, dealer says GL-4, 75w85. I checked and looks like my...

    Ahoy there! First post so I can get access to past a question to the forum. I have had my Dune colored (as in sand dune) since purchasing new in May 2012, that means I get some sort of milage refund each year from KIA HQ because they lied about the milage estimate on the new car window sticker...

    Just got a 2017 RED Soul yesterday (It had to be a RED one, I wanted no other color!). Now I'm looking into accessories to protect it (Floor mats, Steering wheel cover, Car cover, etc) Looking forward to getting some information about those items from other Soul owners. Have a nice day!

    Hi Everyone, I discovered this forum while researching putting cruise control in a manual transmission Soul. What a great thread, I read all 33 pages. My wife drives a manual trans 2006 Scion xB, I installed a Rostra cruise unit in it, and it still works great after all these years. We have...
  13. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Posting this question about my aunt's 2010 Kia Soul with the manual transmission. When shifting into 1st gear, even without pressing the accelerator, the engine revs VERY high. When it is at idle, the RPM is normal. Also, shifting into reverse does not appear to cause the high rev. Any ideas...

    My driveway is steep enough to engage the hill assist and I just wanted to test if the engine was able to hold the car without the e-brake. It started creaking a bit and gradually rolling a little at a time downhill. I've read online that 1st gear should generally be strong enough to hold a car...

    I have a new 2016 kia soul manual transmission. I noticed after it warms up it will hesitate after shifting into second. Its like a delay before it accelerates. I can get aroud this by reving the RPMs up higher before shifting or hitting the gas a second before letting out the clutch. Very...

    I was reading on the forum that if you unplug the plug to the right of the clutch it will stop the assist that drops the rpms. I was reading farther into the thread and I noticed someone saying that if you unplugged the plug you couldn't have cruise control and I was really wanting cruise. Is...
