  1. About to buy

    New Member Introductions
    Hi! I'm not yet a Soul owner, but ever since I happened to rent one a few months ago, I basically knew what my next car had to be. I came here to ask a question about a 2014 Exclaim I'm thinking about buying - Everything looked great, but the fuel economy tracker on the dashboard was showing...
  2. Buying new Soul Question: Can you store power seat configurations?

    New Member Introductions
    Will probably buy a new Kia Soul in the next 2-3 weeks. Do any of the models offer driver "seat memory" where you can store the configuration of the driver seat for 2 drivers? I searched the net & didn't see anything about this. Also, from looking at the pictures of the interior I didn't see any...
  3. Buying 2019 Soul Plus Question: 17" or 18" tires

    New Member Introductions
    Hope do upgrade my wife's 2001 PT Cruiser. Will buy a new Soul Plus before end of year. I'm reviewing the existing inventory of cars & some have the 18" tires & some have the 17" tires. I assume that the 17" tires would ride smoother than the 18" tires, correct? Any other comments on tire size...

  5. Buying my second Soul Monday

    New Member Introductions
    I bought a 2016 Base model in late 2015. It was my first new car I have ever bought, and I loved it. I put 50k miles on it, doing long road trips around the country. Sadly, my wife was in a serious car wreck in it, and it was totaled. My wife is 100% fine, other than bruising. The Soul was hit...

  9. New member, considering buying a Soul, but have a question...

    New Member Introductions
    Hi all - I joined this forum because we've narrowed our next car options to a Soul and one of the Mazdas. I wanted to ask a question. On the Kia website, I see that the Blind Spot Detection System is optional on the Plus trim level, but if I go to the build & price section, I don't see that...

  13. $10 for a Kia Soul oil filter? Where are you guys buying your filters?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    OK, the title was meant to grab you. It worked, because you're here :) I went by my local Kia place yesterday to buy a new batch of oil filters and metal plug gaskets. I usually get 4-6 at a time, so it takes a year or so (I have 2 Souls) to go through all of them, and it's been about a year...
  14. Buying A Used 2012 87k Miles?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I'm debating buying a used '12 1.6 M/T. I own a 2015. Like it a lot but we need a second car. It's between a Prius and this Soul. Obviously the Soul is much less. It has a rebuilt title. Minor front accident. I know there are multiple threads about mileage but there are VERY FEW high mileage...

  16. is it worth buying?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Looked at a Kia Soul today at the dealership. I went to look at another car, but didn't like it. We were walking by the soul and the salesman asked if I have ever seen one. I told him no. He said that I should drive it and he guarantees I will like it. I was skeptical, but I test drove it...

  18. I'm considering buying a Soul... any words of advice?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I drive a 2000 Outback now and love the thing. But it's on way out and it gets horrible fuel economy. I don't want to deal with maintenance problems constantly so I'm wanting a newer car. Souls seem relatively functional in comparison, get decent fuel economy, affordable... I'm looking at...
  19. How soon after buying a new Kia should you wax it ?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    It's been a long time since we bought a new car and I didn't think to ask at the dealership. but how long after buying a new Kia should you wax it ? The reason I'm asking is because I'm not sure if it is standard for new cars to already have a coat of wax when it is sold, as it is hard to tell...

    New Member Introductions
    I am looking at buying a automatic base soul. I figure the family weighs about 625lb. Will the base (small engine) easily carry us? Will the car go 300,000 miles like my old Corolla? Can you do your own maintenance to keep the warranty? Any comments will be appreciates. What is the average...
