  1. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hello fellow Soul owners, I've made a terrible mistake. I've got a 2014 Base Soul. I replaced the back seat door speakers. In doing so I had to take off the door panels which wasn't super hard, but apparently when putting one of them back together I didn't reconnect the opening mechanism...
  2. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    I'm toying with the idea of getting all 4 door handles shaved. Anyone have experience getting this done? Recommended poppers? Also any price estimates offered would be welcomed. I'm hoping to get it done for less than 1000$ but that may be unreasonably low.

    Just saw some SX luxury souls that arrived here in canada and noticed that they don't have chrome door handle anymore. Looked at the brochure also and it looked like they took it out from the list of options. Anyone else notice this? Us brochure is missing that option too now. I saw it before on...
  5. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Anyone starting to see the front driver and passenger door arm rests on the 2011 start to discolor? I have about 2700 miles and both armrests have dark blotchy patterns where you grab the door to open it from the inside and they do not clean or work themselves out of the plastic. My...

    I want to change my black 2011 door handles to body color. It looks like on the older ones Kia sells them painted, anybody look into this for the 2011? I have the clear white. If Kia sells them I think it would not be any more expensive then having someone paint them correctly. I think the...
  9. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I have a base model in white. It has the black door handles. I'd like to paint them white but am reluctant to dismantle the doors to do so and don't believe they'd paint very well as installed. I've considered buying the chrome covers available for the handles and painting them white prior to...
  10. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    We just noticed today while washing the Soul that after this years winter, the chrome outside door handles are bubbling ... they look as if their corroding (salty roads?) THIS is going to the stealership forsure! Anyone else notice this?
  11. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    have been meaning to give all the heads up that body guy let me know that i might wanna use some sort of lubrication for door handles for winter b/c he has seen many newer cars with same kind of handles as soul coming in to his shop with them broken ... he recommended something called "white...
  12. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Anyone notice how springy the outer door handles are on their soul? They really shoot back into their normal resting spot quite quickly. My gf is now afraid of them, since she broke a nail because of it. i've also slipped off it a few times. it's not really a problem, but more of an observation.
