  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    FLHamstrer has posted about adding a ground strap from battery to motor, parallel to the ground strap from battery to frame. This is a much more direct path than battery to frame, across frame to motor ground strap. When I first got the Soul, I measured resistance from battery negative post to...

    This is my first question post here, so I hope I explain my question ok. I just bought a 2012 Soul Base model and decided the first thing I need to add, is a back up camera. I bought an inexpensive one on Amazon and the instruction are not very clear about what to do with all the wires. Here...

    Thinking of buying a Soul+ (which I test drove last year when my husband was shopping - I loved it, he ended up[ with Toyota Rav4). I drive a 2010 Nissan Versa and the front bumper is so low I am just sick of it! Constantly scrapes curbs, and I have to inch it out of some driveways due to dips...

    I've owned Civics and Accords for the past 14 years. My Civic's front bumper was pulled off gradually when backing and turning out of my driveway. My 2000 Accord...no problem on my driveway but on a neighbor's, the front end bottomed-out when driving up and backing out. My wife's CR-V never has...

    I'm actually surprised with what good ground clearance the Soul has. We had a big meeting at work today and had to move all of our cars to the grass so the visitors could all use the parking lot. I wasn't sure about having to go over the little curb we had with the Soul but let me tell you, it...

    I wanted to buy a 2014 Plus manual to tow behind my RV but no manual in it this year. I may go with the auto and use a tow dolly. I need 7 inches ground clearance at the front bumper. Anyone know what it is or have one they can measure? Thanks

    Hello, I just bought a new Kia Soul and I like to go camping and go off onto potholed dirt roads and my poor Prius would bottom out a lot. One reason I choose the Kia was because it it has a 6.5 in ground clearance 1 inch more then my previous Prius. How can I get another 1/2inch or inch on my...

    My sister says I belong in "the hood" with these, but truth is, I do live in the hood. Not hard to install and I love the effect, especially with wet pavement! They have 7 different colors, for Christmas I'm doing red/green. 1 2 3 I personally like the red since it matches the car.

    Hi everyone. I have a 2011 4u SX that came with the 18 inch wheels (p225/45 R18) and the body kit. I just found a really good deal on set of 15 inch Soul winter tires and rims that are P195/65 R15. I have read that moving down to this size may cause minor issues with speedo readings and that...

    Hey guys and gals I am waiting for a 2012 + which will come with 16 inch wheels and tires, but was wondering if the ! with 18 inch rims actually sets higher offf the ground. I will be driving around a lot of jobsites and gravel roads, and want as much ground clearance as possible, so I was...

    is there any way, other than trial and error which can be expensive, to determine how much larger of a tire i can mount on stock 15" steelies without any clearance problems ? - i need to add a bit of ground clearance and taller tires is the common-sense way to accomplish that -

    Hi! Just though I open a thread on Hyper Ground and other Sun product:) First! Yes! Kia is selling an Hyper Ground accessory custom made for the Soul. I tested the kit on a dyno and got a 5ft/lbs and 3HP. There is more that could be done. Need a dyno to do it. So here is the place to...
