  3. ANNOYING Noise! [Solved!]

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    For the past few weeks I've had a very annoying "rattling" noise that simply has gotten on my nerves anytime I don't have the radio on! I've had two people tell me that the noise seems to be coming from the middle of the dash somewhere. I've emptied the glove box, checked for any loose...
  4. Annoying engine problem

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I have the 2.0L 2014 KIA Soul. When I stop at red lights, I notice when idling the car tends to "putt" from time to time. Is the timing belt off? I'm not sure what's going on. Maybe i should take it to the dealership to look at it.
  5. Annoying resonance at 2500 RPM

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Has anyone else had this problem? If so, please let me know so I can hopefully trace the source quicker. Thanks. 2013 Soul Base 1.6 with automatic. When under load (usually going uphill) at more than about 1/4 throttle, there is something vibrating/resonating under the hood at 2500 RPM. It...
  6. Anyone else find this annoying?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Maybe we're doing it wrong because I can't imagine why they would have left it this way but you know how when you hit lock twice on your remote in most cars it does a half honk or a chirp to indicate the alarm is set? Well why on the soul does it honk as loud as it can? It startles people, heck...
  7. Annoying horn beeps when locking or unlocking

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Just got a new 2014 Kia Soul and the horn beeps every time I lock the car (on first press of button) or unlock the car (second press of button but need to press it twice to unlock all doors). I have looked in my owners manual and I cannot see a way to change it. My model doesn't allow for...
  8. 2014 Exclaim- annoying Nav acknowlegement.

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Owned the car 4 days and I'm fed up with having to agree on the Nav screen every damn time I start up. What an absolutely assinine, stupid thing to make an owner do. Does Kia think we are all functional idiots and don't get it the first 100 times we acknowledge the statement. This is something...
  9. Annoying door rattle

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi, i just bought a 2010 soul 4U retro with very low kms (36000), and in immaculate shape. However, it has a rather annoying passenger door rattle when driving above 40km/h. I narrowed down the problem to be the panel just below the window as when i put a kleenex in the gap between the panel...
  10. How annoying is the TPMS warning light?

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    I'm looking at mounting winter tires on dedicated rims, and am considering leaving off the TPMS sensors. Does anybody have experience with exactly what type of warning light and/or sounds I will get, and whether they will be annoying enough to make me regret the decision? I can definitely live...
  11. Does someone know how to silence the bluetooth voice?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    If someone can please tell me if it's possible to silence the voice in my bluetooth???!!! I've had my car for 8 months and it is driving me absolutely bonkers!! Why do I need to hear a voice telling me my car has synced my phone everytime I start my car? I trust you Kia, you don't need to alert...

  14. Annoying noise on dash

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I've had my Soul for 2 weeks now, and I love it. But theres an annoying noise coming from the front passenger right side vent. Its kinda like a squeak, and it only happens while going over bumps, and never happens when its warm in the car. Only at night when its cool, or when the A/C is on. I...
  15. Annoying Water Puddle in Garage

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Does anyone else have an A/C water puddle on their garage floor? We've had 4 vehicles in the 11 years we've been in this home and none of them ever left a water puddle on the garage floor. It's like our Soul saves up all of its A/C condensation on the drive home and then dumps it in the garage...
  16. name 1 annoying thing inside your soul.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    as much as i love my Soul! the one thing i kinda have a problem with are the cup holders..they are placed in between the two front seats and for me are kinda annoying in that spot. ..... would have been better in the front next to each other.
  17. Two annoying issues with iPod and Bluetooth

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Is there a firmware update that might address either of the two following issues? 1) The iPod control software always seems to reset itself if I use the phone. I prefer to listen to a playlist on random. But every time I get a phone call or switch the stereo off, the RDM becomes unset and songs...
