    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Got a couple of recall notices for both of my Souls today (2012 & 2013). Says that they need to program something into the computer and check for damage, and maybe replace the catalytic converter and possibly the engine. Anyone done these recalls yet? Anyone get a new engine? I'm a little...

  5. Couple questions.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    So slowly going through a list of things I need/want to get done on my new/used Kia Soul. Oil Change - from what I have read here it is recommended you use the Kia brand oil filters. Not changed my own oil in years, but as I have a 15 year old son I figure this will be a good chance to teach...
  6. I was looking at Gen 2, but now looking at Gen 1, a couple questions...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I've been reading the forum non stop for a month or so now, and had my heart set on a Gen 2 Base manual. After pricing and looking around, I've seen Gen 1's that are appealing as well. I've found a 2013 Soul+ with 35K miles, 2.0 manual with cruise, etc..for $10,500. Does this generation also...
  7. Two Soul Couple

    New Member Introductions
    We bought a 2012 Alien Green Kia Soul base model (6 speed auto) in 2012 for my wife. It's mostly an around-the-town run-about to carry our two grand-kids. Zippy little thing, but Idaho has 80 mph freeway speed limits and with any sort of head-wind, the little 1.6 liter motor can struggle a...
  8. My Soul: an interesting story and a couple things to look for.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I finally decided to share some of my experiences with my new Soul to demonstrate just how long these vehicles will last and give others some insight on repairs and things I've done. Now save the comments, but I bought my 2010 Soul ! With 172,000 miles on it. As far as I know, it is one of the...
  9. about to buy a Soul...but a couple questions

    New Member Introductions
    Very, very close to buying a Sole...wife and I drove one around and have been investigating a bit. While investigating, I've been seeing contradicting statements on the efficiency of the automatic ranging from peppy/efficient to 'tepid' along with stated problems with gear 'hunting' on longer...
  10. A couple of things

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So I just got my 2014 Kia soul Friday and noticed it looked a tad bit (barely) below the line on the Oil stick and the radiator fluid /coolant was a few bit low to not sure if its just the way it was sitting or what. Sent from Free App
  11. Soul impressions the first couple of days - 2013 Soul Basic

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I am amazed of all the items that are included in the base Soul. So far, most everything I have explored, I like. Some of the items are very simple, like the ability to adjust the seat height or extend the sun visors to shield from the port side. When I understood how the AT shifter works and...
  12. New Soul Red Rouck... couple of questions

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    So my dealer was terrible... really really terrible. But I really wanted the car so I lived with it :) That said he couldn't answer a few questions for me, and I'm hoping someone here can! 1) In reality what the hell does the ECO button do? :) 2) In Drive I can move the shifter left and then...
  13. New Soul Base.. Couple questions about ICE..

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Hello all I am new to my 2011 Kia Sould Base. Mine does not have the center speaker in the dash. My first question is does anyone know if it is wired for that speaker and all I would need to do is buy it and install it? Second question.. My stereo has Siruis but it does not have bluetooth. Is...

    Caught a couple taking picture's while i was sitting outside Panera Bread enjoying my salad.
  19. A couple of specification queries

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Can I expect a UK bought Soul to have a parcel shelf fitted as standard? I've read the threads regarding it being an item that had to be asked for initially so I'm curious if things have changed. Also, does the Soul have an on-board computer for average/instant mpg etc? I'm interested in the...
  20. A couple of quick pics

    Owners Photo Gallery
    Just a few quick pics we took over the weekend. We took the Soul camping with our dog. Ended up putting all our supplies on the back seats (after we covered them) so our dog could sit in the "trunk." He's big (he's an Enlish Bulldog) but he just has enough space. The car held up great, even...
