    Just a little more pizzazz for Sassy, the Weasel Wagon! Simply popped off the backing plate to the door opener. Spray painted with Rustoleum Sunrise Red. Several slow layers. Let dry. Replaced. Voila! I like it! Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Hi. I'm trying to find a simple way to use the space in the front door handles. I'd like to be able to use it for storing small items. This is the only ones I can find, but they're way too expensive. http://sharkracing.com/2010-2013-soul-door-pocket-set/

    Hi - does anyone have issue with pumping gas? I have 2016 base and even when the tank is near empty, i have to hold the gas pump squeeze handle very lightly to get gas into the car. If I use the "hands free" clip/holder, it will keep stopping as if the tank is full. I have used different...

    Pulled my passenger door apart today. The external handle does not work until the interior handle is used to open the door. So, my plan was to pull the actuator for repair or replacement. Getting everything dismantled was very easy until I tried actually removing the actuator. Firstly...

    Folks, I need opinions on the design of the 2012 / 2013 Soul door handles as originally shipped with the car. If you could take a moment to lock your car and then extend the handle to inspect the back side and tell me if you think the painted (top) fascia of the handle could be separated from...

    Just a question about the outer passenger front door handle. We just had a short bout of freezing weather here in Illinois, and my door handle completely broke off! Don't know if it was faulty to begin with or if the weather had something to do with it... How easy or hard is this to repair...

    My keyless entry 'smart key' drivers side door handle button has stopped working. Passenger side works just fine. Dealer says they will check it and have to order a new handle if the button is kaput. First issue with my new Soul. I don't mind as it's all covered under warranty. I just get...

    Before I take it to a dealer for repair under warranty, I am curious if anyone else had this problem and fixed it themselves.

    Just curious if anyone else has had this problem. The service department at my dealership doesn't know what is causing this. When I lock the car, then use the remote to unlock the driver's door (one click of the unlock button), the door sometimes will not open. It's unloacked, but the handle...

    Hey All, Got the Soul a month ago, it's a cool little car. My wife is a shorty-short, and she can't reach the handle for the trunk once the trunk is up. Is there some kind of strap accessory? If you all had any ideas, that would help me. I looked at it for a while, but I couldn't come up...
