    Retired automotive engineer, my youngest out of eight kids just purchased a new Kia Soul yesterday. So make it a point to learn this car to guide her for proper maintenance. Ha, young women don't like to read long owners manual. My first problem is she purchased a Soul without cruise control...

    I had to get a car as my Rio was dying and I wanted something like an SUV but not so big and expensive. I ended up getting a silver and black 2010 Kia Soul+ 2.0L automatic. It came with the 8 speaker light up sound system, fog lights, 16" tires and sunroof. I am VERY happy with it and think I...

    My MIL (malfunctioning indicator lamp). comes on in the car. I went to get the car serviced right away at the dealership I bought it from--TWICE. All they did was a small check and said everything was okay and good to go. Boy were they wrong. Then I was told to meet a master Kia tech on August...

    Hey guys, I've been looking at a 2015 Kia Soul+ for a while now but then saw this video review from Redline Reviews that has me a little worried. In the review, the reviewer (Sofyan Bey Editor in Chief) states that with the cruise set at 65mph the car constantly wants to send the engine up to...

    Hi guys n gals, I'm back in the land of Kia after a while away. For those who don't know me from other forums I'm a previous owner of 6 Kias, all used as taxis in my home city of Brighton, Sussex, UK. I gave that career up 2 years ago after almost 40 years to go back to driving a truck for my...
  8. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I've been needing to trade into a new car for a little while now and while I would really like a new GMC Sierra, I'm just not sure I can justify a price of nearly $50,000 just to have leather interior (okay, $38-$40k with dealer incentives and such). My wife has always liked the Soul and while...

    Hi, my name is Bob (Robert) I got the nickname Big Bob because of my size (6' 250+ pounds) I joined this forum some time ago, with the intention of buying a new 2014 Soul. However, due to some major (and unplanned) life changes, things did not go according to plan. When I joined the forum, I had...

    :culpability:I plug my iphone in and it shows up on the display. I can control the volume and change the song but it won't play unless I press play on the iphone. This is a recent issue (the last 2 days). My phone is up to date, I deleted my phone and re-paired it and it still isn't working...
  12. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Our 2011 White Tiger has done this on/off since we got it a couple years ago but never been able to pinpoint the issue. Was hoping someone else might have had this issue. First thing to note is this happened before the brake switch replacement and still does to this day. My wife will get in...

  14. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I've got a 2011 model & there's nothing wrong with the fuses. Plenty of washer fluid. Are there separate pumps for front & back? When I want to wash the back window (by pushing the arm away from me), I can hear the pump kick in in the engine compartment, but when I pull the arm towards me, I...

    OK, I finally got around to installing the homelink mirror that I bought, oh I don't know - months and months ago. This is for a 2013 Soul. I bought a kit from a dealer. The mirror is definitely a homelink mirror, as it has the 3 homelink buttons, the compass, and the auto dim. The auto dim and...

    So I have a 5 spd 2011 1.6L Base and I love it. I'm trying to add a touch quicker acceleration, and I'm wondering if anyone has any advice. I have made a few SSD modifications and they've been fantastic. The tower strut bar did WONDERS tightening up turning and making my car handle more how I...
