    Just posting as instructed. My wife has that horrible 1-2 lag on her manual transmission. Drive me nuts when I drive it and her too.

    Noticed that when on interstate straight stretches with virtually no input to steering wheel, that when I do move it slightly, there is just the slightest perception of resistance/drag. I never noticed it on secondary roads where the steering is in more constant movement. Expect if I take it...
  3. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    Hi, folks. I can't tell you how happy I am after swapping out the factory 18s (235-45-18) from my 2015 Soul Exclaim for 17s (215-55-17)on lightweight wheels. It has TOTALLY transformed the ride and general handling, all for the better. I can't recommend it enough. I will post the new wheels soon.

    The rear wiper needs a new blade on the used 2016 I just got, and while I was looking at it I was laughing in a "what's the point" kinda way - what a dinky little wiper!! I'm wondering if anyone has successfully added a longer wiper in the back? And if so, which one did you get? I'd like to...

    Hoping someone can shed some light on this issue (and if it has, please redirect this to the appropriate thread, thanks in advance). I bought the car new with 3 miles on it in Sept 2019. I have about 4,800 miles on it now. The first time it happened was when the car had less than 1,000 miles...

    Anybody have a soul with the lower side body molding? Have you put on mud flaps? We got new tires at 55,000 miles And the new tires must have wider tread shoulders. After drive-thru carwash the tires throw A lot more dirt spots up onto the sides of the car. I've heard the OEM mudflaps don't...

    When car has been sitting overnight or at the end of the day I can start it but you hear a sputtering/choking and then the engine revs up and will drive fine. The throttle body and valve have been cleaned as well as the idle air control valve. Was told that the head gasket is getting worn...

    I have a 2014 Kia Soul and I need to remove the original shift knob, and replace it with a Kia original option. That means the red version which is available by Kia dealers. As far as I know the removal is very easy as the knob just need to be pulled up slowly until it pops off. The question...

    Hello everyone! I have a 2011 Soul + with the 2.0 liter engine and 4 speed automatic; right now it's around the 47K mile mark. I did a pretty extensive search and have found very little on this topic. I do understand Kia has a special Kia transmission fluid that is recommended for the...
