  1. Vendor Deals
    If there's a deal, we're going to find it! As Cyber Monday spilled into Cyber Week we've been seeing more and more sales promos. Here's what we've spotted. Sears has snowblowers on sale as much as 58% off Tool kits, smartphone mounts, and DEWALT power tools are all on sale via Amazon at...
  2. ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    I really enjoy my Soul (2015 +) with the notable exception of the UVO. The need to depend on wifi, bluetooth, and a cable for different needs. Using the cable for the parking minder and diagnostics, bluetooth for contacts, wifi for loading apps. What a joke! The next time I buy a car, I will...
  3. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Folks, I need opinions on the design of the 2012 / 2013 Soul door handles as originally shipped with the car. If you could take a moment to lock your car and then extend the handle to inspect the back side and tell me if you think the painted (top) fascia of the handle could be separated from...

    With spring not too far off (couldn't come fast enough) it's almost time to swap the tires. Unfortunately as you all know these cars come with the silly inflation kit instead of a proper jack and spare, all our old cars came with a jack so we don't own one. We've got a gravel driveway so I...

    I was playing with an idea for a small decal to put on my Soul. Was hoping you could give me your feedback. I drew this up, and then put it in 4 colors, just because. Any feedback would be appreciated
  7. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I bought my first soul. When I bought it, I thought a certain piece of 'design' was part of the advertisement and would be removed before I get the car. I found out two days ago, that I thought wrong. I am not sure if I like the look of that 'stripe' or not. It asked the dealership and they...

    If they don't build the GT4 Stinger concept into a production car they're nuts. Kia Soul and GT4 Stinger nab design awards
  9. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have a 2012 Soul and the air conditioning has gone out. The local service center wants to do a diagnostic at 120.00 to tell me a rock hit something and fluid has all leaked out. Poor design is going to cost me $$ less than 50,000 miles and already having issues!
  10. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So . . . I still love my new car, but am I the only one who has noticed this basic design flaw? Most designers realize how the top of the dash can reflect in the windshield, and they avoid reflective surfaces or other details that could be distracting. While these "towers" look neat (and are...

    (This is a Tongue in Cheek Rant. No Souls were injured or molested in any way during my research!) I understand why the designers of a hybrid car would hide the tailpipe. They want you to think it meets the definition of a car that produces nothing less than pristine mountain air emissions...

    I'm looking into putting a full wrap on my soul. As i'm a designer by trade, I've started working on some mock ups for the wrap. I wanted to get some feedback from you guys and see what kind of ideas you have. Feel free to mention themes, color schemes, and any other ideas you might have. I'm...

    Hood Decal Design Idea? I know there are plenty of nice hood decal designs anyone could go with but I saw this photo and I really like the simplicity of it. Does anyone think there's a way to make this work or some kind of variation of it work for the hood of the Soul? It looks nice on this car...

  15. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I have had our 2011 Soul base model for almost a year now and one thing I have noticed is that it gets bounced around pretty bad in crosswinds or if I get too close to a semi I really feel the wind turbulence. I am wondering if different tires that the OEM Nexens would help. I am too cheap to...

  17. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    These pics have been knocking about for a while now. Apparently the tyre is going into production soon in South Carolina. If its not a wind-up, does anybody know anything about them?.

    Finally, after 4 weeks in the making, the car design is done. Taking the original Dragon design, incorporating design elements from the "burner" model and other design elements I liked from other Soul owners, I decorated my Soul. I covered the Soul with Kraft paper, sketched out the design...
