  1. Hood prop rod noise driving me crazy!

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi everyone, I have a 2011 Kia Soul + and love it, except for the annoying hood prop rod (that is brand new) that rattles under the hood going over bumps. I would love to find a way to "revise" it so it will be quiet. I hate noises in a vehicle that really shouldn't be there. Any ideas? thanks
  2. Snow Driving Tips (especially for DCT)?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    first significant snowfall in my Soul, so far pretty great. visibility is fantastic, and the Xenon headlights/LED fogs are great. still rolling with All Seasons Tires (West Coast winters are mild, but i use winter tires for other parts of the province), i just drive more conservatively. coming...
  3. Old soul driving a new Soul

    New Member Introductions
    We love our 2018 Soul +. Have only made 3 payments and we have already logged 11,000 miles! (Had 2 on it when we left the dealership.) Our center armrest has popped up, and upon looking we find the latch has broken off. There have been no recalls on it (we checked). This makes for very...
  4. New Member Intro - Not driving a Soul Yet!

    New Member Introductions
    Hello Everyone, I am a potential new G3 Soul Owner. I will be giving up my 11 yr old Volvo S80 to my oldest as she is learning to drive. So I am in the market for a new car and I have decided on the Soul. I have always liked the quirkiness of them, plus the fact that they versatile in...
  5. Driving lights and power availability?

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    I'm getting ready to install the SSD light bar on my 19 Soul+, yes I know it requires cutting the grille but I'm not going to let that stop me on this vehicle. This brings me to lights: I just ordered a pair of Hella 700FF lights (kit with covers). I also have a set of FF40 (tiny little...
  6. Big puff of smoke while driving

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    While travelling about 20-25 MPH today, I went to change lanes since the car ahead was going slow. In order to change lanes and merge with the inside lane, I stepped on the throttle to gain speed and pass the car. When I did this, the Soul kinda lurched as if stalled or went into a higher gear...
  7. 2018 Soul Base - adding driving / fog lights?

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Anyone with a 2018 add fog lights to their ride? My base model didn't come with any...and turns out the sweet rally bar that SSD makes isn't available for the 2018's. Looking at options...including adding factory style round ones...as well as possibly adding some Hella 500's on the front...
  8. Driving lights and light bar

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    I use my little soul for pizza delivery on the weekend and needed more light on the dark backroads here in Arizona. I originally had these mounted to the outside of the bumper, but hated how it looked. I still have to make a mesh grill to cover it all up for a sleek look.
  9. AM radio "static" while driving over road bumps

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I have a 2016 Soul + with the stock radio and have noticed that when I am driving on a road with some unevenness the AM reception has intermittent static--earlier this week I thought it was due to lightning storms in our area. Today I noticed the same thing occurs, except there is no storm...
  10. New Lightbar & Driving Lights on Base 2nd Gen

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    I decided to change out the mesh inserts and put 4 1/2 inch Cree LED driving lights, in the blanks and switch out the round LEDs on the bullbar for a lightbar for better light throw.
  11. UVO Driving Score

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    I've had my Soul for about a month now and finally got around to looking at the MyUVO site after I synced my iPhone, and I noticed my "Driving Score". I searched and didn't see any comments or discussions about it, so I thought I would see if anyone paid any attention to it? Just wondered if...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My Sons Soul has intermittently kills on him while driving and it has on more than one occasion. And not wanting to crank up again after stopping for gas, grocery etc. Short trips. About 65K mis. Any ideas / thoughts? Appreciate any comments
  14. Missing Part -Flew off while driving!

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi - I am missing the part on the side of my windshield, the long strip that seems mostly decorative. It flew off the car with a huge chunk of ice on a long drive. Here is a picture of it gone. Don't know what to call this part so I can search for one at the junkyards - that's my best guess...
  15. UVO Picture Slideshow from USB While Driving

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I love my new 2016 Kia Soul Exclaim. What would be even cooler is if the Slideshow would actually play while you were driving. I understand that it's a safety feature but honestly the UVO display is just as distracting anyway. Seems like there would be a way around it. Any thoughts? Thanks!

  17. Driving light switch issue.

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Discovered on the way to work tonight that my driving lights were not coming on. Messed around with the switch a bit and found that if I push the stalk forward just a tiny bit they come on, but shut off as soon as I release it. Anyone else ever have this issue? Guessing the switch is going...
  18. Any experience driving Souls with different wheel/tire sizes?

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    Didn't quite see this discussion so far... does anybody have experience driving the Trim levels with the 3 different wheel/tire sizes? I'm looking to buy snow tires, and it's cheaper to get the smaller tires. I'll buy rims and tires so they're easy to change. I just want to know how the...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    While driving in eco mode the car started smoking. Turned it off & the smoking stopped. What the heck is going on?

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    RE: Night Driving Dangers I hope i don't get roasted for bringing up an old post... http://www.kiasoulforums.com/showthread.php?t=57482 I was reading over a lot of old posts and read that one and it got me curious. In the attached pics, imo, the right side is a bit darker than the left just...
