  1. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hi, Really could use everyones feedback..Had my car in for a 30,000 maintenance yesterday at the dealer...Service department says my front brakes were at a 3 and I needed an alignment..Really? Does this sound possible? What was your mileage when you had to replace your brakes? TIA:o
  2. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Got my first alignment done after 30k miles, on tires that have maybe 9k miles on them (didn't get a chance to rotate after I changed my own oil until now). Here are the results. Top = before, Bottom = after. I do drive fairly aggressively on bad roads, though I try to actively avoid...
  3. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So, we have had my wifes '13 + since October of 2013. It has 57k miles on it and it driven around ~40 miles Monday thru Friday to work and back. The road traveled is fairly new, concrete surface, with little noise or issues from the expansion joints currently. Ride feels pretty smooth to be...
  4. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hello all you SOULS! :) Can anyone tell me how to change my temp indicator gauge from Celsius to Fahrenheit? I tried the manual instructions of pushing the buttons within 10 seconds on the steering wheel, but no luck. What am I doing wrong? When do you change your oil? I am old school and was...
  5. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So I've had my Soul for a few months now and from day 1 thought it needed an alignment since the wheel didn't seem straight (10 degrees to the left or so to go straight) I finally got a second dealership to do the alignment because the place where I purchased it didn't agree I needed one. After...
  6. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    I had been having all the maintenance on my vehicle done at a dealership. I decided to go to another shop that had a $159 special for lifetime alignments. I received a printout of my vehicles alignment. The printout had three numbers for each setting. I assume two of the numbers were a...
  7. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    2012 Soult +. I know it can vary depending on the roads I drive on, but in general how often?
  8. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Well I went for an alignment today and I was told that the right rear was out of spec and it is non adjustable. I posted a pic of the report that I got from the shop. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
  9. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    As the title suggests I'm sure it's buried in the manual somewhere but it's raining and the manual isn't very interactive. Does the Soul need a 2 wheel alignment or 4 wheel alignment? thanks :)
  10. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I really appreciate some advice here that's more factual than opinion because I do not trust anything dealership says. I posted last year, about noise that sounded like trickling water or a synthetic rubbing noise when the car was moving at low speeds at about 10-12k miles. I battled a year...
  11. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I dropped my 2012 soul off last night for a front end alignment and new tires (18") Went to pick it up this afternoon and the check engine light was on, water light was on, the gas light blinking (had 1/2 tank at drop off), odometer reads dashes, speedometer not working at all. Pulled the fuse...
  12. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hey, Y'all. I was so excited when I bought my brand new 2013 Molten Red Kia Soul, whom I lovingly named Ruby until I started having alignment problems. I had the car 2 weeks and brought it back to the dealer. They agreed the alignment was off, and told me I must've hit something. Um, no...
  13. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hey, thanks for reading. I just got a 2013+, on the highway it pulls a little to the left when I accelerate up to 70 mph. It's slight, I have to pull the wheel about 5 degrees clockwise. Any one know what I should check? Is this the alignment? Or a bad tire? Any thoughts on what to look at...
  14. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    since i have the soul i always find that my headlight wasn't properly aligned so i finaly checked that. it turns that the left one was ok but the right was low and to the left. i adjusted the height but can't find if there was any left/right adjust screw. didn't find any info on kgis. can...
  15. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My 2011 Soul+ had an alignment done 3 times. Its almost perfect but same problem; caster is off and manufacture doesn't recommend adjustment.The front right caster is off-so steering veers to the left. Had tires rotated-no help.Steering is still off to the left. Should I go back to the dealer...
  16. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Anyone using Eibachs pay attention to alignment specs before and after? My guess is rear doesnt change. Front doesnt look adjustable so maybe needs a cam bolt. maybe only toe needs minor adjust. Any input??
  17. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello All, The problem first started when I noticed the car was pulling to the right. I brought my car in to Jack Daniels Kia. The tech said it was a problem with my tires. I replaced all 4 tires and the car still pulls to the right. I then took the Soul to another dealership which told me...
  18. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi everyone.i am wonder if you tell me is it normal that i have to do wheel alligment second time in 8 months. My car is being pulled to left side. I have this issue and wheel alligment helped me first time. But i think it is not normal that after 8 months i have to do it again. I know that i...
  19. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I notice my soul has quite a lot of positive camber (front wheels lean in at the top from verticle.) Anybody else notice this? No handling problems but am concerned about future tire wear. Haven't measured the degrees but it's enough to be quite noticable. I'll have to take a look at others on...
  20. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi - Anyone had or having a problem w/ Soul alignment? Bought a week ago and notice the car is slightly pulling to the right. Don't like the idea of bringing it to dealer, but I may not have a choice. Nick.
