  6. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    I found a guy selling 3 of his factory 17" Forte wheels (2014) on Craig's list. They look almost identical to what I have on my 2014 Soul. I can pick up the wheel for $40 and hope to use it as a full size spare. So, my questions are: will they fit? and will it fit in the boot/trunk with a...

    I'm looking for something used for my wife, mostly around town but occasionally the out of town trip. We like Hatches and Wagons because we both ride bikes a lot. Looking for used and we drove a '11 Forte yesterday. Frankly, nice car. She has not yet driven the Soul so will be looking for an...

    Hi everyone I am new to the forum. I live in Ontario Canada. We have been driving two pretty old vehicles and hubby said enough. He bought himself the Forte which he LOVES and got yesterday and he bought me the Soul 4U. I am so excited. The problem is we cannot get a red one and I have to wait...

    I was browsing the Ebays in my free time the other night and found six speed Forte knobs for about $26, so I ordered one. Pics: The knob sits just a tad over a 1/4 inch lower, but it looks and feels a lot better than the oem rubber ducky knob that comes on the base. Install is super...
  11. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Hi All, First post, so hopefully this question makes sense. I'm looking to purchase rims to mount my winter tires on. I have P205/55/16 Goodyear Nordics that I used on a different vehicle, but the steelies just don't cut it for me. I have an opportunity to purchase a set of 4 16" stock rims...

    Ok, I have been doing some research on the new AVN Head Unit in the 2011 Forte. As far as the wiring it is the same as the Soul head unit with the external amp and bluetooh. The only difference is the AVN Unit has a plug on the rear for the GPS Antenna. So you would also need the GPS Antenna. As...

    Hey folks, just thought I'd introduce myself to some fellow KIA lovers. I am in Kelowna, BC, Canada and have a 2010 KIA Forte SX Sedan that I've had since September 2009. I have been a active member on your sister forum, FORTEFORUMS.COM, since before I bought my Forte. One of the things that...

    So I expect to buy a new car within the next month or so. The Soul is at the top of my list, but now I'm starting to look at the Forte 5 door hatchback the is coming out soon. The Forte 5 door is getting a six speed transmission, which I'm really curious to see what kind of MPG rating it will...

  19. Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I have seen images of Soul interiors with black leather-wrapped steering wheels, but my dealer can't seem to tell me how to get one. While I don't want leather seats, I do want to replace the hard surface of the plastic wheel with something a bit more comfortable for the long hauls. Does...
