    Hi gang, Several months ago my wife's 2013 Soul got totaled (my avatar pic). Since we've already owned a 1st generation Soul and can't affort a 3rd gen at this time, I'm looking at a black 2nd gen 2015 Soul with about 83,000 miles and the dealership is asking $7800 for it.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    As some of you know my Soul got totaled last fall. I came across a private ad with pics, of a white 2012, automatic, no leather, no rear camera like my my 2013, but looks to be in decent shape, with 115,000 miles. Asking $4250. Sounds reasonable?
