  1. 2017 Soul vs 2016 - feature gains and losses - Canadian models

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I was curious about the changes over the two models years other than the normal exterior tweaks from and back and to what you have gained on a model and what you have lost (always seems to happen). The info I have is not always the best in details, so do not guarantee that this is 100% accurate...

  3. HID lights - interferance with Auto switch feature

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Hi all, going to be purchasing a HID kit for the car but had a question to ask. My SX (Canadian) model is the one with the projector but did not come with the HID's (as i opted not to get the SX luxury Trim). Does getting the HID kit mess with the auto on/off switch for the headlights? pretty...
  4. Manual transmission, hill start--problem or feature?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    We love our 2014 Soul but starting on hills is a little weird. You let out the clutch and there is a hesitation before it will start. My wife thinks this is a feature--so that you won't roll backward on the hill. If so, though, I can't find any mention of it in the manual. I've been driving...

  6. Question: Does the "Random" feature when using USB stay activated after car shut off?

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Question: Does the "Random" feature when using USB stay activated after car shut off? Hey all, I'm kicking around making my own "USB Satellite Radio" out of my music collection, which is fairly extensive. I plan on organizing the tracks by genre - rock, big band, americana, etc - and I plan on...
  7. Another Hidden Feature

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I just discovered yet another hidden feature of the Kia Soul. You have just gone thru the drive-thru of your favorite fast food joint and you are wondering, "how do I keep my food hot until I get home?" Simple, put it on the passenger seat and turn the seat heater On to high! When you get home...
  8. I dislike the Hill Holder feature - can it be turned off?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I have a 2013 base manual. It has the "hill holder" feature built in. Usually if I'm stopped, I throw it into neutral so I don't have to sit there holding the clutch pedal in, which saves some wear on the clutch system and the thrust bearing. Occasionally, however, I'll forget, or it's only a...
  9. Can the auto-unlock feature be disabled?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    The '12 Soul automatically unlocks the doors when you put it in park. Is there a way to disable it? Sometimes I don't want my doors unlocked automatically!
  10. How can I permanently disable the Idle Stop Go feature

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I know about the little button on the dash that turns it off temporarily, but I want to permanently disable the ISG feature. I was told at the time of purchase that it was possible, but when I called the service department they said they had no idea how to do it. Any suggestions would be...

  13. If you could add one standard feature to make the soul more unique, what would it be?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    The soul is already very unique. So what would another feature blow the other cars (especially the other boxy style cars) out of the water?
