  1. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I have a 2016 Base that just spent a week at the dealer due to a bad Catalytic Converter. The car has 59k on it. Seemed a little pre mature. Has anyone else had any catalyst/emissions issues?

    I have a 2014 soul + with 104,000 miles on it. Long story short....had a ticking noise that seemed louder than usual. Took the car to the local mechanic when I also noticed CEL with Knock Sensor code. They said they couldn't do anything and I should take it to Kia.... Took it to the local...
  4. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I was driving home this AM doing about 50mph and approached a red light. When I pressed on the brake hard it felt like the ABS kicked on and I was unable to stop as if I was driving on ice. Luckily I started to brake far enough back from the light that I eventually was able to stop in time. I...

    The radio and backup camera display went into a whiteout mode yesterday on my 2016 Soul Plus. Anyone know the likely cause and cost to repair?

    The flip key has cracked where the blade enters the chrome pivot point. It cracked and the pin securing the blade fell out. I can see where my other one has hairline cracked as well. I've read where this is a fairly common occurrence and that most dealers will warranty it as a "goodwill"...

    We experience a failure of the air direction switches. This also has the A/C switch to fail and we have no outside temperature display. Go figure. We've only owned this Soul for 10 days, we bought it used. If you have a solution or suggestion, I'm looking for opinions.
  14. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My Soul+ has been having an intermittent issue when starting recently, with no particular pattern that I can discern to date. Sometimes when I start it, nothing electrical is working, including power locks and windows, heating/cooling system, and interior/exterior lights. If I turn the car off...

    I had this problem a few times when the car was new (Oct 2009), but nothing for the last three months. Then today after visiting the supermarket (the car was parked for about 30 minutes), the car failed to start at the first four attempts, then started OK on the fifth. The engine is the 1.6...
  19. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Coming home June 10th I was on the toll road when suddenly all I heard was a grinding, then everything went dead. Stopping traffic, people honking their horns. Nothing I could do. Luckily a sheriff stopped and directed traffic around me, and called for a tow truck. Since then the Soul with...
