  2. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    While travelling about 20-25 MPH today, I went to change lanes since the car ahead was going slow. In order to change lanes and merge with the inside lane, I stepped on the throttle to gain speed and pass the car. When I did this, the Soul kinda lurched as if stalled or went into a higher gear...

  6. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Technically, it will be four wires, but who's counting? I am looking to upgrade the ground wires and main power wires to the starter and alternator. Tthe grounds were done (battery to frame & engine to frame) so now it's time for the power side. I wanted to retain the factory battery cover on...
  7. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Did this a couple years ago, back during the SH days. Has been an awesome upgrade and is fairly easy for a home mechanic. I only know for sure that it will work on AM1 Souls (09-11) as mine is a 2011. Clears factory 16's but not the spare. Started with dual piston calipers from a 2002 Hyundai...
  8. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    2013 Soul and my biggest complaint is the less than compliant ride when faced with road imperfections compared to my previous cars. Totally acceptable given the price, but it certainly wouldn't hurt to find ways to improve comfort on rough roads. Still researching aftermarket suspension, but for...

"Titanium" Gray, great car, soon to be licensed and called '1 Mausi' for the color (had to add the 1 as "Mausi was already taken - ts, ts, ts !) Yep, I did come fro Germany 32 years ago - lived in...
  11. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Last Labor Day weekend, my mom, step-dad, and my baby sister and I went from Atlanta, GA up to NE Kentucky for a family reunion. At that time, my sister hadn't actually been in my Soul, but, I had insisted that we take my car instead of her Ford Expedition. She, reluctantly, agreed but had...
  12. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    The Soul made a very pleasant 3000 km, 31 hour trek to the east coast for our annual kiteboarding trip in the OBX at Hatteras, NC. Cheap to get here :)
  13. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Kia Soul 2016 Base, I have found a really large opening in the body right in front of both rear wheels. Not only is is a trap for anything kicked up on the road, but there is has no draining so anything going in their stays. These are big, about the size of a fist. I am one of those...
  14. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    I bought my 2015 Soul last January and the salesman was showing the car to me he raised the rear lid and showed me the air pump and can of fix a flat he said there was no spare and this is what kia was doing now. It was not a deal breaker so i said ok.Well i got to thinking i really would feel...
  15. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hi Folks: I have identical twin 4-year daughters and a 9-year old son. Generally, we roll in our Honda Minivan, so the Kia will not be the family daily driver. However, we definitely need the occasional use of the Soul for family duty. The girls are around 35 pounds each, the boy is...

I fabricated the adapter brackets to allow for the bolt-p of the calipers at home. Below are some of the pics of the...

    Greetings from the big island. We are near Pahoa, where the lava flow seems to be heading. We are maybe 7-8 miles away. We are retired, and the wife wants another car. We have a 2004 Toyota Tacoma small truck that is a workhorse. I joined here to try to learn more about the Soul, and...

    Hello everyone glad to join your group! I'm a proud :pride: new owner of my first Kia, a 2014 Kia Soul Two-Tone Fathom Blue/White and I absolutely love it! I had to trade (give away lol) my dear 10 year old Mazda but truth be told not missing it. I'm looking forward to learning all I can about...
  20. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I'm considering purchasing a basic Soul. The less frills the better other than Automatic transmission and maybe roof rack. Only other interest is in engine size. I am non-technical. Just wondering if going from 1.6L to 2.0L makes a big difference? Is it worth it? Any big design differences...
