    Back in November of '18 I purchased my '15 Kia Soul base manual after searching for a smaller car which for me had to have a manual transmission. I never considered a Soul until I saw one online for a good price. After going and test driving mine I absolutely loved it. I bought it with 61K miles...
  2. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Wife's 2015 dies in the middle of a busy street after backing out of a driveway. No codes at all. Crank sensor had good output on cranking. Under warranty, towed to Dealer on Friday night. Come Monday it starts, runs and drives just fine. Dealer attempts no repair after driving for 2 days. I go...

    And we Love it.... Less than 4K miles so practically new. My first question is, I want to buy a code reader that will do OBD II together with ABS Oil and Service reset and other systems. Preferably a stand alone unit, But could do an IOS solution Did a search but did not come up with much...
  4. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Bought new in 2014. Pretty much trouble free, until.... I recently replace pads and rotors on all 4 wheels and I completely wore down my right rear pads in 3 weeks. I thought it might be a bad caliper so I replaced the right rear caliper last night and put new rear pads on both sides. Went for a...

    Just got my 2012 Soul, base model. I paired my phone up just fine with the Bluetooth through the radio. Seemed pretty straightforward. If my phone rings, the screen says "incoming call" and displays my caller's name as it is in the contacts. All wonderful. But I can't figure out for the life of...

    I've loved the look of the Kia Soul for, like, forever. I finally got one, a 2012 base with the 6-speed manual. It had been sitting there like a turkey at this used car dealership for months, because no one wants a stick shift any more. My wife and daughter don't like the looks of it (my wife...
  8. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I have seen the videos, and install seems easy enough. But where do I get an OEM kit for my Soul. All the kits require a heated wheel.....really, what is that? Remember I have a base manual which I love. The only kit I can seem to find is a cheesy after market stick looking devise for around 3...

    I know this information has been answered somewhat. But I’m confused as to if Kia can actually program a remote to the car or not. Does it have the receiver? I was told it would be pricey, but that’s not my concern. My concern is does the car actually have the receiver to accept the programming...

    My wife and I are thinking of trading in our trusty '13 Soul (Base, Automatic) that has 93K miles on it. Except for some small rock chips up front and small bump from a hit&run moron in the grocery store parking lot, it still runs and looks like new. That is why we are hesitant to trade...

    Hi there! I purchased a very nice silver 2014 model with dealer maintenance records, although the last owner stretched the oil changes out a bit. Not sure if he used a full synthetic or not. The car spent its nights in Kansas City (with this mileage, its days were on the road!), and I am...

    Hey everybody! This past summer I purchased a 2014 soul base with a 6 speed manual with just around 50k on it. It really was an emergency purchase since my previous car died (I was able to push that one to 210k!). I got my soul for an absolute steal at $8k, then $7,500 with the trade in on the...
