    Hi all, just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Andrew and I just bought a 2015 soul base with manual transmission in latte brown. It's barely broken in with 9,400 miles. Traded in my trusty 2003 Pontiac vibe. Looking forward to driving a newer car! Oh, and since I am a redhead, a friend...

    Hey everyone, I've always considered Kia to be a less than desirable brand until I test drove the Soul. I absolutely loved it! I learned to drive in a '97 Jeep Cherokee Sport. Stick shift. Every car I've had since has been a manual excluding my last car (Santa Fe). When I found out the Base...

    I purchased a 2013 Soul + around six months ago and found this site while searching for parts and accessories. I used to own an 09 Jetta Wolfsburg but once the warranty expired (after 3 years), it began to cost me. My father and father-in-law own Souls so I decided to take a look. I bought...

    I'm actually a 2013 SWP Kia Optima Hybrid owner (just bought my girl 7/5/13) but my darling daughter just bought her Titanium Kia Soul+ yesterday. It's her first brand new car and since I'm the one that loves researching and learning, it will most likely be me hanging out here in the forums...

    Just picked up my new Soul last night. 2011 + in Denim. A few months ago my car died (engine seized up, it was ugly). The only other car we had was our emergency backup, which is a beater. The next weekend we had a 1,200 mile drive and there was no way a '96 Escort wagon was making that...

    I've been reading the board for the last few days. I haven't gotten my Soul yet, but I plan on getting one in the next few months. I'm debating getting the Sport or the ! with some accessories. I drive my '01 Rio like a combination of a sport car and a hybrid and have managed to squeeze it out...

    Just wanted to say hey from Columbus. I've had my Soul base model for 6 days now and couldn't be happier. It's the first new car I've ever owned :D I'm not much of a gearhead/car nerd, but I'm grateful that there's a site like this for noobs like myself. Peace and hair grease, Brant

    Here are some crappy cell phone pics of the Columbus Ohio Soul meet we had today. C My Soul brought out the $1000 camera and got better pics which he'll post later on. My cell phone was only 2 megapixel and 1600x1200 resolution max so sorry for the poor quality. SamuraiJack had the silver...

    Okay folks. The 31st looks do able for most of us. What time do we want to look at? 11am? Noon? I was thinking 11-2 or noon-3 ish.. We can pick a meeting location pretty much anywhere, although if we have folks coming up from Cincy, maybe the SE side would be better.. there's a Sonic...

    My wife has had her Dune Soul since the middle of May. She already has almost 8k miles on it due to her job. I own a '06 MINI Cooper S and spend a lot of time on MINI forums and have found great advice on several issues. I thought it might be a good idea to find something similiar for the...
