    I have the 2018 Soul Plus with the standard sound system. The volume goes down when backing up. Is there a way to keep the volume from doing this?

    I have a weird issue going on. It seems that the at down shifts very hard from 2-1 at about 20 mph. But only some times. If I slow to a stop quickly, it doesn’t do it. If I stop normally, is when it seems to do it. Tranny fluid is full, car has a little over 50k miles.

    I have not been able to locate a replacement knob to fold the backseat forward on our 2013 Soul. I was able to jimmy it with a butter knife to unlock it, so the internal bits are all good, but I'd rather fix it for good and have it work as intended. Also not tied to having the knob itself, but I...

    I’ll be picking up my 2018 Kia Soul plus, Mysterious Blue, in about 8 days and am really excited. It will be sharing the carport with the 2012 Kia Soul + that was also purchased new and the 1995 Jeep Cherokee Sport that will probably outlive them both - and me! My new ride will have the rear...

    Hi Everyone Has anyone had problems with 2.0 auto bogging down on take off? It doesn't do it very often but always at the most dangerous moment. No codes show so dealer can't find problem or been able to duplicate. It has done this since new now has 46500 miles. Everything original equipment. I...

    What's the trick to getting the back seats to lay as flat as possible? I sometimes have to take catoring orders and I need them flat so the food doesn't slide. Also any recommended covers for protection?

    Hi there... Just bought a 2016 Soul and I have a couple of kayaks I have to carry. Where are the tie down points at the front and back? All I can find is plastic underneath.

    Hello We have a 2010 Soul. Base model. Just under 150K miles on it. Its happened before but this weekend on our trip to Savannah Ga and back at times when I hit 80+ mph I would lose the Eco mode. By losing I mean once the speed dropped down to 75mph or less the ECO mode would not reappear. Then...

    Friday night or this weekend I'd like route an antenna cable from the center of the roof to the dash area or under the front seats. Usually, years ago, one would go down the B pillar. My concern is the Airbags. Is it still possible to do this? Do I need to disable them before doing this? 2013...

    I see on 2015 only has driver auto down. Has anyone tried swapping the window switches with another year or model to see if window down will work on pass window? Is there a auto up feather as well or only auto down? Since Kia wired in the cruze for all models I was wondering if they did the...

    I have a 2010 Kia Soul Exclaim automatic. I noticed tonight an "odd" feeling when driving. So when I was in the driveway I put the car in neutral and revved it up a couple of times. Every time it was coming down off the revs I would feel a slight stutter at 2k rpm, every time. Has anyone else...

    When up shifting or down shifting will that cause one to use more gas than just use the automatic drive? Paul
