    I just bought my 2nd Kia Soul, this one a 2018 SX turbo with the Tech package, which includes the Panoramic roof. I have a 16.5 foot canoe that I need to carry on the roof. Since I have the Panoramic roof, the dealer parts man told me that the "rail mounted" crossbars don't work with my SX (no...

    I negotiated with the dealer I just purchased my soul from to include the roof racks accessory, and when they do get installed (hopefully tomorrow!), I think I will continue my "Good Samaritan" roadside assistance.

    How's everyone doing?? Don't really know if this should go in this section of the forum, but oh well. I got the idea in my head a few weeks ago that I wanted a basket for the roof of my Soul. I found a nice decent one for $20 off Craigslist. Then I decided to paint it red since I have the Red...

    These came dealer installed. Does anyone know if there is a front side or back side of the crossbar. They seemed to be tapered on one side and rounded on the other. Reason for asking is trying to determine what the source of the whistling is coming from the rack. Thanks.

    I went outside to look at my rails and measure them.......the old style SSD ones Mike first offered. I measured 1.5" thick but my eyes may be playing tricks on me. Can anyone run out and quickly verify this? Actually, I just re-read the link I included and Mike from SSD verified 1.5". The...

    Apologies to Mike first and foremost - much as I'd love to pull the trigger on a set of your hybrid rails, at the moment, cost is an issue, so I'm just exploring another avenue..... Does anyone have a set of these roof bars for their US spec 2014 Soul : 2014 2015 Kia Soul Cross Bars Rails...

    During a recent conversation with Kia UK Customer Support about another matter, the topic of roof bars came up in conversation. Given that one of the main reasons I bought the car was to transport my surfboards, imagine how absolutely gutted I was to hear that Kia UK WILL NOT be making roof...

    So my local news did a quick story on one of the Kia hamsters. Turns out the hamster has been claiming money for things that he didn't seem to have wrong with him. Made me laugh and just thought I'd share it. Kia hamster actor charged with disability fraud - Las Vegas Sun News

  15. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Hi, I would love to put side bars on my car (black bars ). I have gone to my kia dealer and they said that they checked their website and no side bars are made for the Soul. I have called around to car places and they do not have them either. I have checked car accessories places on the web and...

    I just put these aries nerf/side bars on my 2012, they came from carid and look NOTHING like the pic they have, but I like them and installation was pretty straightforward. No drilling required, total install time was about an hour. What do you think??
  18. Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I am looking to install cross bars on my 2012 Soul 2U. Does anybody know how far apart rails on the roof rack are? BTW. I don't have my new car yet, hence the seemingly stupid question.
