  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    MattMC was a solid member here for many years and helped me a lot with various PM questions. Looks like the last time he posted was June, 2016 and after having multiple cars, actually starting in late 2009 with a '10 model then a '12 and last seen driving a SE '14. I miss his input...guess he...
  2. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello, I own 2 Souls, a 2011 base and a 2010+. The problem I am having is with my 2010+, here is whats going on. We have owned this Soul since 2013 and it is my Grandma's daily driver, I am currently driving it because my Soul is getting repaired due to a recent accident. Now, pretty much since...
  3. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Sorry this is silly but I wanted to share. Since we got our new Soul about a month ago we've noticed just how many Souls there are out there. Similar to "slug bug" my family has taken to calling "k, k, kia" anytime we see a Soul on the road or in a parking lot. When pulling into the grocery...

    2 long time people I haven't seen around here in a while. Hope these guys are still kicking, even if not in a Soul...
  5. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Posting here under General Discussion as I'm not sure if I just experienced a feature, a problem or an alien abduction... So my Soul is sitting outside for a few hours this evening after a rain, still very humid out and leave to go to the store. I drive maybe 1 mile and stop at a light which...
  6. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    About a month ago I turned my A/C on in my 2014 Kia Soul Exclaim and a white powdery substance that looked like a fog came out of the driver side vent. I held my hand to it and created a light filmy texture on my hand and has an intensely sweet smell. It stopped after about 25 seconds. I called...
  7. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi All! 2012 Soul. 165 horsepower engine, automatic. I was at a light tonight and I hit the throttle hard. Halfway through the shifting the engine completely died for about 5 seconds and then picked up again. During that time a HUGE black smoke bellowed out and lasted for about a mile. Little by...

    I saw this topic on another auto board and thought that it might be fun to do it here. Basic idea is to describe what you did with your Soul on that day. Did you go for a car wash, go to the dealer, take it on vacation, that sort of stuff. I don't know, I think it might be fun so post away! :)

    Last I heard he moved to Hawaii with a just acquired Ignition Soul. I don't think he's posted since january-ish.
  10. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I took my wife's car to gas up then to the grocery to pick up medications for myself. When I got in the car to leave the grocery store I put the key in and it would not turn! The light ring around it lit but nothing else. Not thinking much good I took out the key and flipped it over (silly I...

    Ok, so I have a 2011 Soul Tiger (essentially just a nicer +) and I got in my car today to head to work and when I drove down the road, the doors locked at ~10mph...weird...I get to work, turn the car off and all the doors unlocked. This might just sound like the normal feature of some cars but...
  12. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    When I first joined here almost two years ago it seemed like we heard a lot from Tempest and I enjoyed his insights and sense of humor. From Wales I believe...like Tom Jones? Seems he has disappeared. Did he just lose interest? Sell his Soul? Or is he reading this post right now and...
  13. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Just took a spin in a 2014 base and really liked it. From earlier photos, my first choice was a bright blue plus. But neither the brochure or Kia web site shows this blue. Wonder what happened, it looked like a great color.
  14. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Was headed to school when the idiot in front of me started to turn onto an intersecting road and then changed their mind and tried to get back in front of me. I had to stop to let them back in front of me BC the two of us were wedged in the road forming an upside down V. The truck behind me...

    so was commuting home from work, stopped at a red light and was rear ended I am wondering if you guys might know how long this will take to get fixed or if I should just let it slide?

    Last week, couldn't resist any longer. Drove a Soul for the weekend while on a trip. LOVED IT! Finally jumped in. Currently have about 700 miles on a Dune !.
