  1. Test Drove a 2020 LX with CVT

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    So, I am still shopping for a new car. Unfortunately being new to this game, I'm finding out it's complicated. I went to dealer D and test drove a 2019 Base with automatic and a $1200 entertainment package. I liked it just fine and got the price down to $18,700 OTD (tax, DMV, destination)...
  2. Just drove out with Soul #3...

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    ...a fully loaded 2019 Kia Soul plus, and she is awesome!!! What?? arctic seats and heated steering!!! Anyway, the one thing I've not been able to figure out is the lighting under the door handle. Yes, I see the speaker lighting, and can adjust, but not the under door/arm rest. It is is...
  3. Drove a '17 Turbo tonight.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Swung by my dealership tonight to take a peek at the '18 SX Tech Turbo, but they didn't actually have it on the lot. Was talking with my salesman from when i bought my '16, and was talking about the possibility of re-upping into an '18 Turbo model. Looks at me and says, you wanna go spin the...
  4. Drove Souls

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I've recently driven two modern-era Souls, i.e. 2016 and 2017. While my 2015 is gone merely months, the feel of these--both "Base" models which, as Designated Soul Man of the Soular System I have christened, with the authority granted me by myself and my vivid imagination, the "&" model (that...

  7. New Member - Long Intro: Test drove a 2016+ tonight...still interested...any advice?

    New Member Introductions
    Hi, Everyone. Been considering upgrading my 2003 Mazda Protege5 to a newer/used vehicle with a $15K budget. I was considering a 2012 VW GTI Autobahn pretty seriously, but even the premium feel, fun-to-drive-factor, and practicality couldn't overcome the reliability and potential maintenance...
  8. Just drove a Mazda CX-3

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Since I'm into cars, I try to stay up on the latest models. Having test-driven the latest CX-3 (which I consider a Soul competitor), I don't think the Mazda is worth the extra dough over the Kia. I drove a loaded AWD Grand Touring version (about $29,500). Even though the Mazda is supposed to...
  9. Test drove 2014 soul today !

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    OK , It is all they have said . Quieter , smoother , very comfortable , handles winding road nicely ! It seems even more roomy in the front seats than before ! Love it , just love it . As I sat in it I was smiling as soon as my butt hit the seat .The seats are almost plush and the new steering...
  10. Drove a 2014 Yesterday-NICE

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Full disclosure; I don't own nor have I ever owned a Soul. But I've been hanging around here for almost two years, have learned a lot an hope to own one some day. Currently I own a '08 Mazda 3 hatch, '95 Miata and my wife took possession of a new-to-her '11 Kia Forte hatch last night. Last...

    New Member Introductions
    a Plus and also drove the Sportage. I liked both but i really like the Soul Better, if I ordered one it would be the Premium Model, but still debating, I live in the Northeast and with Snow it can be a bit of a chore making it up the little bit of an incline in my Driveway and I'm wondering of...
  12. Just drove 2012 6speed manual alien

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Things I noticed felt different car has lag in second while rolling out 5mph wonder if the 5w30 is issue with CCVT. Did not notice any extra power but do like extra gear. Steering over steers and is 2 times as easy turning in parking lot but wonder about on road feel in turns. Think I like my...
  13. Drove a 2012 + today

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    My wife and I took the Sport in for the TCM reflash TSB today, and while they were doing that, we took a look at a 2012 + model Soul with the 2.0L/6-speed auto. We took it out for a test drive after looking over the differences. It's a night and day difference in refinement and power over the...
  14. Did some cross shopping on Saturday, drove some other vehicles.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I took advantage of some alone time on Saturday when my wife took our 4 1/2 year old daughter to her Aunt's for the day. Basically had 12 hours all to myself and it was a beautiful day out, so it was time to torture some dealers. For the past several weeks, I've been researching the Scion XB...
  15. Drove home from dealer...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    2011 base model 5 speed manual Drove home from dealer.....and the check engine light came on, less than 30 miles on the car. I was pretty mad to say the least! I turned the car off and back on and it went away for a couple of minutes and then came back. Brang it back to the dealer the next day...
  16. Just test drove my first soul!!

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Well I just got back from test driving my first soul. I drove the 2011 with 2.0 auto. It was an awsome car. I love this thing, and cant wait till the 2012 hits the streets, so that I can buy one. I will probably buy the + with the new 2.0 and MT. I didnt think the 2.0 auto was a dog at all...
  17. Well I test drove a Soul and want to know...

    New Member Introductions
    I was quite surprised how well it rode but I had 2 complaints about it which the salesmen could not answer or comment... Does anyone have an issue with engine noise? I drove the Sportage, Forte and Soul and by far the Soul was the loudest for engine noise. Has anyone heard a sqeeking sound for...

    Hello all! Just got my Molten Soul+ today. LOVe it. Charging the camera tonight so we can have a photo shoot tomorrow. Thinking of fixing her up a bit in the near future- rims, HID's, other little stuff. So glad to be on here to get some input and perspective.
  19. Test Drove Today...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I live in Orange County, California and have been looking at the Soul + Auto for about a week. Today I went out and test drove, and it was awesome! The only down side is dealing with the dealer... I've gotten a few quotes online and then when you get down there, they have something completely...
  20. So I test drove a Soul today...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    So I get to the dealer, and I noticed that half of the Souls the dealer had were gone. In fact, they had sold 4 alone that day lol. Unfortunately, they also sold the one I was looking to buy... but anyways, the reason I was there was to test drive one. Now, I dont even have my license yet (I...
