    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    was trying to avoid some debris at a right turn, miscalculated the distance from the curb. back passenger side wheel seemed to hit the curb or go over it no damage to the wheel or sidewalls, Soul seems to drive fine after the fact. should i be worried or have it checked out? just cleared...
  2. Predator Hit A MILEstone Last Night

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    My parents bought Predator as a wedding present for me and my wife back in June of 2016. When she and I left the lot with it, it had 54 miles on the odometer. Last night while on patrol, it hit 50k.
  3. 2017 SX Turbo 3 weeks old massive rock hit on HWY

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Well, not the way I wanted to start with my new vehicle. I just got dinged on the hwy with a nice quarter size dent and some scratches. Ugh, really depressing for such a new vehicle. Off the the dent repair shops now for some estimates. Seems that you can get this done pretty easily and cost...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I hit a curb head on at 50 mph on tuesday. Insurance company is still trying to figure out weather to total the car out. Both front tires were flat. When I came to a stop, a big, thick cloud of white smoke billowed out of the hood of the car.I also could not shift out of drive. I couldn't even...

  7. Just went to 18" OEM wheels and my mileage took a hit

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Pretty surprised how much my mileage dropped (on the computer anyways) going from 16" alloys to the 2012 18" OEM wheels. I've lost almost 4 mpg but gained a cool new look!! I guess the way the wheels looks is worth it. Anyone else have this issue? I should have weighed the 16 inchers before...
  8. GT Spoiler... Hit or Miss?

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Hey guys, so I've always had an idea of taking a GT wing and putting it on my Soul. Crazy, I know. But is it really that crazy? Could it work? I'm interested to hear everyone's opinions on whether you guys think I could pull it off or not and if the general consensus is yes then for the sake...
  9. A/C condenser got hit by a rock and blew the charge!

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    About a week and a half ago, I was cruising to work and a truck started dropping debris in front of me. I heard a couple ticks impact the front before I could back off and move over, and I continued on my way to work. That afternoon on my way home I fired up the A/C (its been in the 80's around...
  10. Someone hit my parked car! What should I do?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Someone hit my car while I was parked. I have a question about the warranty. The passengers side front door has a small amount of damage...the whole back passengers door is gouged and dented and some of the back quarter panel is dented and scratched. I was prompted by my insurance company...
  11. Hit the Highway...

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    And sometimes the highway hits back. I have noticed a strangeness in my new Cooper CS5 Ultras. After running them awhile I've noticed a "thumping" sound coming from them. Faint but noticeable none the less. At first I thought it was irregular road surfaces as they have been paving most major...

  16. 2011 Soul rear ended by 2001 F-150 (minor accident)

    Owners Photo Gallery
    Soul vs F-150 Classic scenario: Chain reaction of cars slamming on their brakes, as do I. I was completely stopped when I heard tires screeching behind me and braced for impact. Honestly, I was scared to get out of my car to see how bad it was... needless to say, I was pretty impressed :)...
  17. Hit some scrap metal on the 400N.

    Driving to work north on the 400, just north of the 401, I move over to the far left and leveled out at about 120kph the car infront (bimmer) swerves kicks up a piece of folded scrap metal about 2ftX2ft. The metal hit just below my driver side fog light then seemed to sound like it unfolded...
  18. 2012 Soul -Starting it hit the streets in Korea.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Here is a link to the 2012 Korean Spec Soul with some pretty good pic's of the actual vehicle. Which is good. as I was getting tired of looking at the Brown ones posted from KIA Media. All of the interior shots are from a Plus model. They have some external pic's of the Exclaim/Sport but no...
  19. Hit 33.2 MPG today!!!

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Finally got him over 31.5mpg today while I was cruising to Sugarland. My advice? Dont go over 70mph. I normally keep it RIGHT under 70mph, I get my best mileage that way. Also, 59 is a long stretch of freeway/highway so, that helped as well. Excuse the blurriness of the photo as when I took the...
  20. Finally hit 31.5 mpg

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I beat my last record of 31 by .5 ... felt pretty good. Perhaps i'm overreacting, but coming from driving a 1993 F-150 that only got 13-15mpg, i'm feeling pretty good about that small .5 increase. I'm going to have to do a bit more freeway/highway driving though, because before my Sugarland...
