    Hi all, I just noticed this bulge in my front bumper on the right side, just above the fog light. It's weird because it looks like it's pushing out from the inside. Has anyone else had this issue? I though it might have been a parking lot ding from another car, but I don't see any...

    So far I've been enjoying my used 2010 Soul +, but one of the things I'm working on is getting repairs on the relatively minor cosmetic damages made by the last owner. I went to the closest Kia dealership to check it out and the guy told me that I'm going to need a front bumper cover (and a rear...

  12. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hey all! I was rear ended this morning at a red light. I have literally had my Soul for a month (still has temp tag on it). Like an idiot I didn't get the persons insurance info probably because I was so relieved that my bumper was still attached to my car and I was in complete shock that this...

    My silver 2011 Soul has a scratched plastic bumper. Actually, it's the top that's under the rear hatch. I was loading a bicycle and wasn't careful enough. Question; can the scratches be gently sanded out or will it just leave a big discolored patch looking worse than the scratches themselves...

    We just purchased our new 2012 Kia Soul Plus recently. We have had some light rains and sleet flurries within the past week in my area.

    It took about two weeks to arrive but I like this rubber rear bumper protector I got on eBay from Korea. The ones I've seen at the dealer are thin and your paint color shows through a cut out logo. This one is thick rubber with a embossed SOUL logo and offers more protection. Stuck it on today. :)
