  1. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I would have expected our owner's manuals to advise replacement every 50,000 or maybe 60,000 miles. This thread prompted my 2 cents https://www.kiasoulforums.com/145-soul-problems-gen-2/114365-another-burning-oil-thread.html Kia has an inspection proceedure, per these links Kia Soul...

    I was wondering if anyone knew of or has a high output alternator for the 1.6l Soul. I'm planning on installing a pretty big system and didn't want to have any drops in voltage. I've found one for the 2.0 at powerbastards.com. They look similar to the 1.6, but I didn't know if there were any...

    I have a 2010 Sport 2.0 with 178k. Wondering if using high milage oil makes a difference or is it just a marketing thing?

    Hi, I drive the 2015 manual. I have noticed that if I am doing about 35mph and feel like I can shift to 6th gear, when I do I hear whining sound from the transmission while maintaining speed. I hear it at that speed the easiest because the road noise is not to great to cover it. Does anyone of...

  10. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I've recently noticed my 2016 Kia Soul plus having trouble when accelerating quickly on the interstate going from about 60 to 80. Around the upper 70s, the car will jerk really hard. Sometimes it won't stop until I actually let off the gas. It feels like someone who's bad at manual is driving...

    Posting this question about my aunt's 2010 Kia Soul with the manual transmission. When shifting into 1st gear, even without pressing the accelerator, the engine revs VERY high. When it is at idle, the RPM is normal. Also, shifting into reverse does not appear to cause the high rev. Any ideas...

    My 2012 Soul (Auto) has got stuck in gear a few times. It tends to happen in 3rd or 4th (that I've noticed so far). I'll be driving along accelerating normally on a flat road, the RPM's continue to climb and climb before I know it I'll be at 4,000 RPM then I'll manually force the car into 5th...

    So...I looked at a flood victim the other day. A 2014 with 8k miles on it that was totaled by the insurance company. It was an ! that had every option under the sun (and the tide as well) Owner was super honest and let me spend as much time as I needed poking/prodding and driving. I could not...

    Hello! Was just wondering if there is any word on a Soul '14 high output alternator? Finally have enough money to start upgrading the electrical properly! I know some users said the Soul '13 alternator matched the Optima '13 alternator, etc. Anybody prove that the Soul '14 alternator matches...

    I called to add the Soul to my insurance plan and my agent told me it was one of the five cars she says to NEVER BUY! I was blown away. She said the insurance is very high since it crumbles easily in an accident and has lots of airbags that are costly to replace. My response was that I would...

    I have a 2011 + that all of a sudden has a high pitched, ear piercing tone (like a speaker or dog whistle). The noise seems to come and go, but its more often happening. This only started happening yesterday, and Tuesday I picked the car up from the dealer after having maintenance done. They...
