    New Member Introductions
    Hi there, I decided after 3 years after collecting a new Sportage, that the time had come to get something a little bit different and the one that stood out for me is the Soul. Picked it up yesterday from the dealership and I absolutely adore it. So much lighter and nippier than the Sportage...

    New Member Introductions
    I've loved the look of the Kia Soul for, like, forever. I finally got one, a 2012 base with the 6-speed manual.

    Good day and Happy New Year Soul brothers and sisters. I am a completely satisfied gen 2 Soul base manual owner. I'm in the car biz, was selling Kia when I bought mine. That was 04/14, in So Cal, but now I'm in Northern California, just about a month of driving away from 100k. Aside from one...
  6. Kia Soul lift kit is finally here....

    New Member Introductions
    There is a Kia Soul lift kit out there for sale it is about $300. It is a 3” lift which from what I was told it is the biggest lift you can do without doing major changes to the car. Any higher and you would have to change a lot of stuff for example the drive shafts coming out of the...

    I've been driving a little Chevy Cobalt coupe for the past 10 years and finally upgraded to a 2016 Kia Soul+ with 44k miles on it. I can't believe all the room I have now! I'm always doing renovations to my house and now I don't have to cram lumber into a tiny car anymore. I got a killer deal...

    New Member Introductions
    So, I remember when the first hamster commercials started coming on TV. I was a much younger and less wise person then, but I knew right away that was my car. That was what, almost 10 years ago? This past week I made the decision to utilize the credit I have been building these past few years...

    I've been looking for the right Soul to claim as my own for several months. I finally located a gently used 2017 Soul! Turbo with just under 7000 miles on the odometer. I just had to drive down to Florida to get it. I knew that the Soul was a good vehicle but I hadn't seriously considered...

    Hailing from the Hudson River Valley, 60 minutes north of NYC, I've been pining for a Soul for several years. Finally took the plunge when my Honda Element hit 220K on the odometer. Drove it off the lot this afternoon. Smoooooth ride. My new baby is an Alien II+, and comes with the UVO audio...
  13. Finally Got A Soul

    New Member Introductions
    Hello everyone. Been checking out the forums here. Looks like some great info. I'm pretty excited about getting my new Soul. Actually it isn't new, since it's a 2012 model, but it only has 38,000 miles so it is new to me. I'm not new to Kias though. My previous ride was a Kia Spectra. I had it...

  16. FINALLY! Aftermarket Cold Air Intake CAI For 2nd Gen Base 1.6L

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Like many of you fellow 2nd gen Base 1.6L owners out there, I'd been thru an exhaustive search for a CAI application for our cars. Lots of applications for the 2.0L, a few for the 1st gen Base 1.6L, but none specifically designed to fit the 2nd gen 1.6L, and none that I knew of that could be...

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Just so I can have bluetooth A2DP multimedia music built in. Right now I use a bluetooth dongle plugged into my aux port. It works but I get engine noise from it. Can't wait for not having to pair it with my BT dongle anymore to listen to my Samsung Milk streaming music. By the way I...
