    Greetings - I'm in Southern California - My driver's side front door on 2013 Soul ! was mangled in a car accident on private property and driver's window shattered - frame and posts look OK, thank goodness - a friend who rebuilds classic cars is willing to swap the door for me and paint it if...

    I have a question to those who have been rear ended in your Soul. I am trying to figure out the likelihood of my Soul being repaired or totalled, so I can be most prepared. I was rear ended when i was almost stopped at a stoplight. I was about 20 feet away from the next car when i was hit. It...

    One of the things I was impressed with was the 10 airbags and some of the other safety features. I was surprised when I found out the people in the back seat of the Kia died. But looks like she took a pretty hard hit. Just thought I'd share. Your thoughts and experiences?? Date: June...
  4. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    In the rainstorm today, I ran over a sign and completely ruined the left side of my front bumper and the left headlight as well. I was wondering about how much it would cost to repair it? The kia is a 2011 soul.

    I have a 2011 soul. Last week I got into a minor fender bender. Luckily I just got clipped on the rear passenger side and only damage was to bumper cover. Just going to fix out of pocket as bumper cover is Around $200 and deductible is $500. I noticed the plastic piece in the wheel well needs...

    Yesterday, I backed my Soul into a wall and ended up cracking and breaking the plastic cover over my taillight, I was just wondering what be the best option. (I've already taped it up) But I was wondering if you could replace the plastic cover or do I have to remove the whole thing? All ideas...
  8. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Well, I guess it had to happen at some point. On my way home late last week, I met a work truck on a one lane section of road and he couldn't stop fast enough and slid down my front driver's side fender. Fortunately, that's where 99% of the damage is located aside from a minor paint scuff on the...

    Hey there, I'm in the process of buying a 2013 Kia Soul, and I had my heart set on Moss or Titanium. Problem is I've been 3 dealers in my area and none of them have any on-hand and they've been calling other dealers out of state and no dealer wants to swap with any of them. I got into a...

    My wife rear-ended a Ford pick-up (sudden stop,interstate construction area) a month ago with her '12 Silver '!'. The Ford's trailer hitch went into the lower grill,bending the inner bumper bar/condenser & radiator. The radiator was punctured,but the a/c still worked and since the man in the...

    Ok, my teen mistakenly put diesel in the tank and I need to drain it. Does anyone have suggestions? I know I have to change the fuel filter and maybe the spark plugs. I spoke to a mechanic friend who said I can drain the tank by "jumping" the fuel pump and letting it pump out all the old...

    I received these pics from the Insurance Adjuster today. Repair Estimate is $5,426 so far, and may go up if the Body Shop finds more as they start changing out parts. Big Red is not Totaled! It's kinda hard to see in these pics, but the Rear Bumper is split, just above the "SOUL" Bumper...

    Shipmates! My wife and I were driving Big Red on an access road, off of I-35 in San Antonio/Selma Texas on Thursday about 4 PM. We came up to a YIELD Sign, and I stopped for 5 cars that were coming off of the Highway Exit Ramp. Next thing I know, we're sitting in the grass, 30 feet from where...

    Hi guys & gals, I am the owner of a 2011 Soul Sport and have a long commute (70 miles PER DAY). Much of my commute, however, is freeway and I consistently get between 28-31 MPGs (woohoo!). In fact, the only time my MPGs slip below that is on the weekends when I drive mostly city miles around...

    Driving around, I've noticed that very few people have their headrests set properly, and most actually have it set in a way that could drastically increase the potential for injury in an accident. Despite the amount of work I get from improperly adjusted car seats, I figured I should make a post...

    Soul vs F-150 Classic scenario: Chain reaction of cars slamming on their brakes, as do I. I was completely stopped when I heard tires screeching behind me and braced for impact. Honestly, I was scared to get out of my car to see how bad it was... needless to say, I was pretty impressed :)...

    This was my first accident I have ever been in. I was rear ended by a 2007 Pontiac G6 who was doing 35mph and I was doing 15mph. The accident was completely his fault and his insurance paid for all my repairs. My poor Soul :( but hey I turned out a hell of a lot better than he did! :D [/URL]...

    So, I was on my way to pick my wife up from work this afternoon. I was on a ramp between two different interstates when a skunk darted out in front of me. I reflexively slammed on the brakes. The car behind me plowed into me. I was still moving, though slowly. I'm not sure but I think he...

    This is a pic from a customer buying a new Sportage, he was driving a nissan, but it was written off, along with the Soul that was behind him in traffic on the highway, when the soul was hit at almost 100km while at a dead stop, by a truck, the Soul got squished, and they had to use the jaws of...
