    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I have a 2016 Kia Soul base. Been driving the car for a year and a half and never noticed before. This week I set out for Arizona from California, I noticed on the Freeway at speed of 75 mph and plus, the driver's side view mirror flutters at those speeds. The mirror body is, very firm and so...
  3. Drivers side left arm rest.

    New Member Introductions
    Love my 2016 Soul. The only thing I find uncomfortable with is that it feels like I have nowhere to rest my left arm while driving. The door armrest is to low to be comfortable Maybe because I am tall. Does anybody else notice this and is there any way I can add a fold down armrest on the...
  4. Headlamps Not Appreciated by Other Drivers

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    2015 Soul - From the get-go, I get flashed at night by other drivers thinking my headlamps are on bright. I told the dealer at an oil change, they said they lowered them, but I still get flashed. I took a look to see how to adjust (lower) them myself. Looks like a knob with a phillips head...
  5. Interior drivers door

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I bought a 2012 Soul and I am absolutely smitten with it-I mean her. The previous owner must have worn a lot of rings or something because the door handle/armrest is scratched something awful. I am not sure if it is dirt or some kind of protective film peeling off. It is just the top piece where...

    Looked through a few pages of threads and didn't see anything specific on this particular noise. It just started a couple months ago. Doesn't matter if it's only the driver in the car or three people. When making a right turn, regardless of speed, there is a rubbing sound coming from the...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Hello, I test drove a 2014 Base Model Soul and found the driver's seat too long, resulting in my knees bending awkwardly. I'm 5'2" and this is the first time I've come across this in cars. I did read that that Kia had redesigned the seats for bigger and taller drivers, but is there a...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    The drivers seat sags to the left. I took it to the dealer who said it had a broken spring and that they would replace the seat bottom. They ordered a new one and installed it. However it sags to the left the same as the first one. The front passenger seat is fine. I am going to take it back to...
