  4. Cleaning question and one general thought

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    1. What do you all use to clean the interior surfaces? Some Armor All type product? 2. The Soul feels bigger than it is. When it's sitting in our parking spot it does not look that big. However when in it I'm surprised at how much room there is and how big spaces like the glove compartment...

  10. Base vs. + General questions

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I've been looking at the two of them to determine the best choice for me. Throwing out some questions running thru my head. I'm sure there will be more, but this is what I'm thinking of at the moment. I've looked online and can't find if the 2013 base will have the option of 2.0 liter...
  11. Tire compressor for general checks/maintenance?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    So I find a lot of grumbling regarding the lack of a spare tire, but could we use the tire mobility kit's compressor to keep things inflated monthly? Rather than leave it for emergencies only?

  13. Some General Comments

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I currently own a 2010 Soul+ and I love the design, utility, and value of this car. I can live with the "scratchable" interior materials, but there is no excuse for the rattles coming from the dash/glovebox area (a common problem listed in this forum). I have rented two 2011 Soul+'s over the...
