  2. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Has anyone had any experience is using one of the Performance/Fuel Economy chips that plug into the OBD2 diagnostic port. Just curious is they actually work and if the are actually capable of increasing fuel milage since the Souls comes already with ECO feature in them which I assume is...
  3. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Just wondering. Do any of these really work or are they just gimmicks to get your money. I've read about the gimmicky resistors for some of the imports but have yet to hear anything good. So I'm wondering about a reflash or a OBDll type chip, has anybody tried either. I'm looking for a little...

    After just picking up my new to me 2010 Soul I was loving the Shadow Dragon Black....but now after putting on new tires and driving for a week...I hate the black paint!

    I bought my car used 6 weeks ago (2011 Kia Soul 2U in Molten Red with 33,000km on it) from the dealership. Took it to the car wash a few weeks back and noticed some awful stone chips forming infront of both of the back tires (near the bottom of the back doors). The dealership says this is...

  11. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I am in the final phase of negotiating a 2012 Kia Soul when a friend said today that they had heard horror stories of all the chips, cracks and windsheild divits that occur on a Soul because of the angle of the windshield. Even bugs could cause it according to the person...which seems a little...
  12. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I know it has been discussed to death already but I thought this was funny. I was driving 40 mph in the city. I hit a small black bug which stuck to my windshield. I get to work and go to wipe it off my windshield and it chipped it! I've never seen anything like it!

  17. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I was at my dealership yesterday and the General Sales manager, who is a friends of mine said that i should really consider getting a 3M transparent film applied to the nose and mirrors of the Soul to protect it from stone chips. He said it is basically invisible and helps a great deal. I agree...
