  1. 2013 ! Stuttering Acceleration, No Check Engine Lights, No RPMs

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi all! I started having an issue about a year ago where my 2013 Kia Soul (!) would stutter at the lower end of a gear when accelerating or cruise control. Example, the 6th gear engages around 40mph; if I slowly accelerated at around 41-42mph, then the car would stutter and RPMs would dip for...
  2. 2015 Exclaim - Rear Suspension and more...

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I have a 2015 Exclaim with about 27K mile. I purchased it used a few months back and so far my wife loves it. We've noticed the rear suspension is very soft, in a bad way. So much so that it feels like the rear is bottoming out when we pull out of our driveway with our three young kids in the...
  3. New to me 2015 Kia Soul Exclaim!

    New Member Introductions
    Good afternoon. I bought a used 2015 Exclaim for my wife with only 22K miles on it. It has the "Whole Shebang" package and we love it. It's off-white, I don't see too many of these around. We're still learning about the car, but so far everything seems great. Only issues are the bumpy...
  4. Traded my 2016 Exclaim for a 2020 Soul GT-Line Turbo

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    Really enjoying my third soul. Started with a 2013, 2016, and now the 2020. Looking at the window stickers the 2020 was only $1,000 more than my 2016. Still getting used to all of the new safety features. Digging the heads up display and wireless charging shelf. Took the only Turbo the...

  7. Screw fell out of the sunroof

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Weeks after signing up on this forum with some test drive questions, I finally bought a Soul! I decided to splurge on a fully decked-out 2016 Exclaim. This is one of those things you can't make up, though: On the way home from the dealership, I was closing the sunroof and a screw literally fell...
  8. About to buy

    New Member Introductions
    Hi! I'm not yet a Soul owner, but ever since I happened to rent one a few months ago, I basically knew what my next car had to be. I came here to ask a question about a 2014 Exclaim I'm thinking about buying - Everything looked great, but the fuel economy tracker on the dashboard was showing...
  9. Can I swap 17-inch wheels for the 18s on my '15 Exclaim?

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    Hi, fellow Soul Mates: Does anyone know whether I can swap out the original 18-inch wheels and tires on my '15 (!) for 17-inch wheels and tires (either Kia or aftermarket brand)? What do I need to know (bolt pattern/offset) to get the right wheels and make the swap? The ride is just...
  10. Can I change One Touch Turn Signal on 2019 Exclaim?

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hi all, My wife just purchased a 2019 Exclaim with the Tech package. The One Touch Turn Signal now blinks 3 times. She wanted to change it to 5 or 7. Since I can change it on my 2017 Optima, I figured it would be no problem. Well, I couldn't find the menu for it in Settings. Is...

  12. 2019 Kia Soul Exclaim (!) Engine still runs after engine has been turned off

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hoping someone can shed some light on this issue (and if it has, please redirect this to the appropriate thread, thanks in advance). I bought the car new with 3 miles on it in Sept 2019. I have about 4,800 miles on it now. The first time it happened was when the car had less than 1,000 miles...
  13. 2014 Kia Soul Exclaim Suddenly died - motor locked up

    New Member Introductions
    Hi everyone! I am new here, so this is the only place I'm allowed to post I think. On Nov. 6, 2018, mid-turn, my sweet soul (144,441 miles) locked up and died. All the lights came on and then it just died. I had it towed to the nearest dealer, who quoted me $10,500 for a new engine. I have...

    Formerly a satisfied Toyota owner, they no longer had a model that suited our needs as well as the Soul. So far, I'm impressed.

  16. '19 exclaim metric to english dash in sport mode?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I'll be lazy and ask here instead of pouring over the boring manuals..... In sport mode the torque bar graph reads in Newton meters and the boost graph reads in kPa. Is there a setting to change that to good 'ole imperial units........Foot Pounds and PSI ?? I do hope so......:grey:
  17. Parking Brake & Brake Fluid Warning Light - Kia Soul 2015 Exclaim

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I've been noticing something odd. If I'm at a red light (stopped) and I accelerate hard I see the Parking Brake & Brake Fluid Warning Light appear then it turns off within a second or two. It's the only time I see it when I'm accelerating hard from rest/stop. Is that something I should get...

    Owners Photo Gallery
    Love my new Soul, in Fathom Blue. Only had it since this past Friday. Just gave it a bath before taking some pics of it. It's loaded, but as far as I can tell, i believe no mods have been done to it at all, at least, not yet...
  19. 2019 Exclaim, 3000mi so far. How often should I beat on it?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Enjoying the ride so far, no complaints. The seats are comfortable, the controls work great, hey I'm NOT fussy! The power is a lot of fun as well. My one question is, does it harm things if it's driven around town lightly too much? With the DI valve carbon issue, should it be taken to redline...
