  1. Better to trade or sell?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I have a 2018 Soul+ with 4,700 miles on it. Low mileage is the reason I'm selling.

I am unsure if I would do better selling or trading...

  6. I ran the battery dead, 6x's, and I need a better solution to my "Problem."

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Yeah, I ran my battery so low, the "door unlock fob" had no effect. It was MY FAULT completely. Still... I need a better "fix" than what I've been doing, up to this point. In the Super Secret Boot Compartment, under the carpeted flooring, is where I used to keep my trusty jumper cables...
