  1. Slight stumble any ideas?

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    My 2010 2.0 recently developed a slight stumble, usually during acceleration. I can let off the gas a little and press it again and it goes like nothing happened. No cel or idle issues, verified with obd 2 reader. Coil, plugs and wires were changed about a month ago. I'm going to check the fuel...
  2. Tire size ideas

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    Hi everyone, new to the forum, I am trying to re use my wheels from my car on my wife’s Soul, as they look better on it. The front is a 18x7.5 +45 and rear is 18x9 +63. I’m trying to get new tires that will be similar in sidewall height etc, I just don’t know what size for the rear that wont...
  3. Just looking for ideas

    New Member Introductions
    Wife has a 2012 Soul that is more utility than anything. Just check in here often for ideas on things to make it nicer for her. I have a crew cab Ram 4x4, lowered, debadged, blacked out, with some mild tuning work that I daily drive. Also have a bagged and body dropped mini.
  4. Kia Camping in a Soul: Give me your ideas or experience.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I removed the carpet/board that covers the spare wheel, and put a large plastic tote box there. That's where I keep my paddling gear extras, like spare bungie, straps, nose plugs, tape ad infinitum. It hinges toward the front of the car, making it easy to dig into. Other gear is strewn around...

  6. Ideas for replacement of 2013 Soul+ UVO Headunit?

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    So my wife's head unit just took a crap the other day. No sound and it resets itself every time she starts up the car. KIA says it is dead and is out of warranty. $800 to replace it! Hah! So here I am looking to get something into the car that will stream Bluetooth music using Google Play Music...
  7. G2 - discovered features, good ideas

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    hope I'm not duplicating but I did a search first, but we appear to have something similar for the G1 but not the G2 which is quite a different vehicle. Post anything that you might have discovered after purchase your G2 or wasn't aware of or thought was a good idea or perhaps not mentioned in...
  8. Ideas for improving front seat comfort

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    So I'm finding the thing I miss most about my previous car is the front seat. I don't mind losing leather but the seat just isn't nearly comfortable enough. Back seats are very comfortable. Any ideas on improving the comfort of the front seats? Little more cushion and lumbar support would be nice.
  9. i need some speaker box ideas

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I want to get a system for my car, but a regular box will cover my spare tire. Since the spare is mounted off center I thought maybe I could build a box on the side so I can still get the spare out. Anyone have any pictures of their set up?
  10. Engine noise, any ideas?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi all, Recently started noticing a sort of whiring noise coming from engine bay of my 2009 1.6 petrol soul. The car has 58000 miles on it, but serviced every 10000. I've checked the oil and it's fairly close to the max on the dipstick. The noise increases with revs, but sometimes it will...
  11. Need to Get Wires from FRONT to BACK, any ideas?

    How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    Folks: I am running wiring from the front of my Soul (tow bar connection) to the rear lights I added (see other thread). I am not tying into the Soul's wiring at all, I need to run my own 4-wire (trailer wire) from the front to rear. Another user on an RV website claims the wiring can be...

I just went for an inspection and they said they aren't turning amber when the headlights are off. When the lights are on the flash amber and white. My dad has the exact...
