  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    My 2017 Soul+ with Audio & Primo package has Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS). I noticed the 2018 Soul+ models with Audio and Primo Lit Package also have Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB). Anyone know whats involved, and if at all even possible to add AEB to my 2017? (Same question for...
  2. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So our soul, with 42k miles started making unusually loud sounds when braking. It was the sound of friction, typical of pads against rotor. Not the morning grind you hear when the rotors have accumulated surface rust. Not the squeal of wear sensors against rotors indicating brake replacement...
  3. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    2013 soul with 77,000 KM - high pitched squeal while driving from front left wheel area. Squeals loudly when going straight or turning wheel to left any amount at any speed, goes away when wheel is turned right even a little bit. Goes away under braking. Could this be wheel bearings? If it...
  4. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I won't call this a problem, but just more of an annoyance...Does anyone else's car "hop" when applying the brake pedal hard when taking a sharp turn?
  5. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So I was going faster than I should have on my city street (had an emergency to attended too) and the light turned yellow and I stepped on the brakes. The tires squealed and the car drifted a little. Frightened me a little bit and the funny part was is ABS didn't active. So is this an issue...
  6. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I git a soul Now for 2 months and it only has 1000km on it. I notice that it makes a sound while braking. Thought it was normal since the pads are still new. But i already have 1000km on It and it still makes that sound when making a full stop. Is this normal? Will It go away eventually. Dealer...
  7. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I'm pretty sure Kia Souls don't come with that right? I'm not sure though, because sometimes my brake pedal will depress when I brake but more so than my foot and will pop back up. Just curious to see if anybody knew what I was talking about. Everyone else thinks I'm crazy!
  8. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Whenever i'm going over bumps or something, and braking simultaneously, it feels as if i'm pressing a brick. It becomes incredibly difficult to press the brake down. I mean, I can still brake, i'm a strong girl, but it just gets harder to do so. Does this happen to anyone else?
  9. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I'm kind of on the fat side. I am 5'10 and 210lbs. I had to brake hard on I95 here in South Florida and I had to give every once of strength that I had or I was going to be up on the trunk of the car in front of me. It scared the bejesus out of me. I am an old bastard, 63 and driven many...
  10. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Greetings - I have two 2010 Souls, and I've been encountering a problem with ONE of them, that the dealer hasn't been able to diagnose or replicate. When I start the car, all is normal (I hold the brake pedal down, and it seems fine). If I just then put the car into reverse and then let go of...
  11. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi, The only single problem I can think of with our new Soul is that when it's been raining alot, and we have been out driving, when applying the brakes later in the day, they will make a slight noise and grind noise as the we come to a stop. It happens right after we go through a car wash as...
  12. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My car never brakes consistently when down shifting into first (A/T). Sometimes when it goes into first the pedal gets sucked down away from my foot and it brakes really fast. Other times I have to stomp on the pedal to get it to stop. Does anyone else have this problem.

    So I'm doing my delivery job, going down 4 lane road @ about 40mph, and without warning a car/mustang come's out of an apartment complex side exit & instead of stopping before entering the 4 lane road, he protrudeds all the way into my lane & stops. I'm only about 5 car lengths & closing fast, I...
