    I never had the lift supports on any car go bad before and mine just went bad yesterday. I have to hold up my trunk now if I want to get in there. I went on ebay and found two supports for less than $30 new. They are cheap to buy I guess. Part# 81780-2K000 I wonder if the extreme heat did it.
  9. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I've recently noticed my 2016 Kia Soul plus having trouble when accelerating quickly on the interstate going from about 60 to 80. Around the upper 70s, the car will jerk really hard. Sometimes it won't stop until I actually let off the gas. It feels like someone who's bad at manual is driving...

Took it to a mechanic in town and he thought the...

    After my CEL came on I read the P0420 code then took it to my dealer for them to verify what was actually wrong as a few things can cause the P0420 code. They advise me that my 2010 Soul had 2 converters and the one on the manifold side was bad (air leak). Do these really have 2 converters and...
