    Hi, new owner here of a 2019 black soul +. I'm trying to see if there's an update to the uvo software but whenever I go to the site through links to the updates, it always takes me to the landing/login page. Based on what I've googled, there may be a sd card somewhere around the head unit that I...

    I wanted to introduce myself to the Forum. I have had my 2018 Soul! for about a year and have loved it! Fun, responsive and bulletproof. It's the car that I taught my 16 year old daughter to drive on, so guess what? She found a 2016 Soul+ in white with pink racing stripes and we are now a 2...

    I wanted to get a manual transmission vehicle since I have a couple teenagers and I wanted their hands too busy to text while they're driving. Decided a 2014-2018 Soul was the right pick. Spent about a month to figure out what to get. Was leaning towards a 2018 since I found some for under...

    A friend works at the Kia plant here in Georgia, and as an employee perk, they can apply for 5 "Friends and Family" certificates that entitle the recipient to invoice minus 3% percent and a 400$ rebate. Normally I would negotiate with the knowledge that whatever I paid, the dealer would still...

    I know that when you sell the car, the warranty drops from 100k to 60k. However, I read somewhere on another forum that if you sell / gift the car to a family member, the 100k miles warranty stays. Can anyone confirm?
