  2. Engine Pull and Curb weight

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Was just wondering how a basic 1973 VW super Bug with its Curb weight and compare the 2016 Kia soul curb weight(1.6 Auto) with the engine sizes are about the same.

  6. Hit a curb today :(

    Pulled into my local gas station today to get my lotto, and I caught the side of the curb. I scratched the edge of the rim :( I am just glad the damage was'nt worse, a little touch-up paint should do the trick. All of the cars and trucks I've owned in the past, never had to worry about the rim...
