    As the title suggests, I'm a prospective buyer and I have a few concerns!

    I usually thoroughly check out my new car purchases because I tend to keep my cars over 10 years/150k miles, and some over 250k miles. Among those have been some Peugeots and Renaults! My current daily driver has been a 2002 Subaru WRX Wagon automatic. Oil and filter changes every 4k miles...

    I feel dumb and frauded. The dealer said we could get the 2014 kia soul exclaim with sun and sound package for 24,000. We would pay 3900 down and our loan would be for 20100 He then wrote up a contract where it said 29,000 and finance 25,525. Isn't there a cooling off period or how should I...

    Wife wants a Soul. Have some questions. Is the 2 L auto trans combo adequate for all driving? Any mechanical chronic issues with the Soul? How much quieter is the 2012 than the 2011 model? Has Kia ever had factory rebates on the Soul? Are there a lot of after market products like floor...

    Hi Everyone, My wife and I are considering buying a 2012 Soul 2U (we like some features on the 4u but prefer the ride on the 2u). We would pay cash rather than finance. I'm wondering about bargaining with dealers, as we have only ever bought used cars. Where are we likely to get movement...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I'm fretting over my Soul choice, based upon numerous reviews I've read regarding rough ride & wheel size, as well as manual v. automatic transmission. Obviously, larger wheels affect ride quality, and the Sport is tuned even stiffer, so that model is easy to rule out. My real choice is...
