  4. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    In researching, I came across the, possibly obvious?, notion that having more sidewall reduces the risk of wheel damage from potholes? So if I go from my stock 235 45r18 to the 215 55r17 for my 2016 Kia Soul then I'd be adding aspect ratio which in turn keeps the rims a tad bit safer...

    :suspicion::suspicion: Is it me or is there feck all paint on the hood. I have stone chipped marks on the hood. Some look like they've gone down to the metal. Was thinking of either getting covered in vinyl or attaching a hood bug deflector ( 2014 EX Model ) Your views?
  6. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I was rear ended Sept 2014 and had the car fixed, in Jan 2015 I moved to Alaska (where there is more rain) and on Thanksgiving Day I realized I had 2 inches of water in my floor boards and the tire well had water almost to the top of my spare tire. I have been back and forth with the Kia...

    Tree branch fell on my 2012 Kia Soul. Windshield is destroyed, hood has a few minor dents, the section of the body/ roof above the driver's side windshield is significantly dented, and the the top of the dash is pierced. The engine starts. I would post pictures, but apparently the files are too...

    I've read the air conditioner compressor in Kia Souls ars subject to stone damage. Has anyone built, installed, or purchased a protective plate to protect the compressor from flying rocks, etc.
  9. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Let me first say that it is very awesome to stumble across a forum for Soul owners. I have a 2013 that I purchased just last October with 4k miles on it. I am not at 12k and just Tuesday morning, could not get my vehicle to crank or shift. Because I am under warranty, I had it towed to the...

    I have a 2014 Kia Soul Exclaim With the 2.0 Liter Engine. Each dealership that I visit tells me a different story on which oil they use I.E Semi Synthetic or conventional. The dealership told me that I could not go from one to another. My question is can I switch to either or without any...
  11. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Yesterday we had a thunderstorm which produced hail stones the size of moth balls. Both my wife and I now have well over 100 dimples all over our less than 6 month old KIA Souls. I sit here waiting to hear back from our insurance company, PRAYING they aren't going to tell me they can't be...

    Yes after 3 ½ years & 99,000 miles of city driving my 2010 Soul, I got into a car accident. I was just driving along a major road & my lane, most left of 3, was slowing up for a red signal & suddenly I notice the car behind me squealing & smoking tires coming at me. Imminent collision about to...

    Our Soul was damaged over the weekend in an underground parking garage. It was done pulling out of a parking spot, scraped against a concrete pillar. Just our car; no other vehicle involved. Pretty pissed off... never had to do auto body work before. I have attached photos of the damage. Given...
  14. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hey all! I was rear ended this morning at a red light. I have literally had my Soul for a month (still has temp tag on it). Like an idiot I didn't get the persons insurance info probably because I was so relieved that my bumper was still attached to my car and I was in complete shock that this...

    Hey Guys, Im selling the rear bumper that came off my 2012 soul. I posted the story in the general discussion. Its a 2012 Black Cherry (Shadow). There is minor damage on the lower left hand side where it was pressed against the actual bumper, and there is one broken clip. It is the farthest...

    I received these pics from the Insurance Adjuster today. Repair Estimate is $5,426 so far, and may go up if the Body Shop finds more as they start changing out parts. Big Red is not Totaled! It's kinda hard to see in these pics, but the Rear Bumper is split, just above the "SOUL" Bumper...
  17. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Today I was washing my car and I noticed what at first I thought was dirt was actually damage to my paint job. Some of the paint has come off and the body is exposed. What is an easy way to get this repaired without spending too much money? Will a touch up pen work for this? Where can I get one...

    Well, end of summer and the road crews around here are in a mad panic to get the streets done before the horror of Winter arrives. With it comes tar balls, boulders and pot holes the size of Volkswagens. Some of the streets have been "shaved" of their top layers and dodging the remaining...

    but I was not happy with that stranger who got so close to my new Soul! I wanted to say, "Hey, pony-tail chick in the white SUV, give me some space!" She did not even stop!!! :mad: I knew it wasn't a hard bump, but I pulled off to check anyway. It was dusk. Checked again with a flashlight when...
