    I tried emailing a moderator but didn't get a response. I can't post in classifieds because I don't have enough posts. I used to have a 2013 Soul base until it was victim of a hit-and-run which totaled it. I took everything I could out of it before it went to the insurance company, so now I...

    Currently SIRIUS Satellite radio is free until Sept 10, 2018. I am really enjoying listening to it in my 2015 Soul! If you have the older oval style of radio (like me) press "radio" until you see "SAT1". Then use the Seek/Track button to change channels. Enjoy!

    I've actually never owned a car with a sunroof....and that one on the Soul is HUUUGE....very nice. Has anyone noticed any issue with regard to that sunroof? (leaks or function) Also, does this create structural issues (squeaky) / compromise the rigidity? Thanks

    I got this email from Kia this morning. I did some research but am still confused. This doesn't come out until the end of this month, but I was expecting lots of discussion here in the Forum about it. Did any of you get this email or is it a late April Fool's joke from Kia just for me...

    Does anybody know if Ethanol free gas burns "cleaner" than standard 10% ethanol and/or if a bottle of Techron should still be used at every oil change interval when using Ethanol free gas? Should Techron be used more or less frequently, or not needed at all? Thanks, Sonic

    I was just going through some of my stuff and found an extra set of vinyl decals I had for the Soul that I sold back in May. These go next to the side markers on the Souls. If anyone wants them they can have them for free. Here is a picture of them on my old Soul.
