    I've found a 2011 in Java Brown....I've always loved the color. It is a plus model with 111k miles, two tone interior, fog lights and very clean. Sure I know the 2012's were better in almost every way, but they are asking $5600 and I'm thinking I'd offer $5,000. A good deal or a stupid...

    Ran across a '11 that is listed as Brown but kinda hard for me to tell from the photos. There was no Moss until 2012 so if it looks Brown at all is it by default a Java? Does the VIN provide a paint code? Good color or blah? VIN KNDJT2A20B7214679

    In my continual search for a '12-13 Titanium, I just stumbled across this really nice looking Java. Never seen one in the flesh but it sure does look nice in these pics. I presume these are factory wheels that the PO had polished and IMO they look great. Java, available for one year only...

    Sorry for the bad quality. Camera phone and especially the picture taken inside have real problems with combination of sunlight + darkness in the room. I try to take nicer picture later. IMHO this is NOT the same color than other Java Brown cars I have seen. This is closer to metallic gray or...

    after TSB update, my wife is happier, and as bonus, I added HID last night and decided to update my album. All the mods have been easy, affordable, and quick. I also added "what I did different" with HID installation on DIY section.

    These are the 3 I am considering, and I am having a really tough time!! I like the Alien but I tend to keep cars forever, so am concerned about not liking it 3 or 5 years from now. Titanium looks good with the interior, but a little boring. Java is a great color, but is it dirty quickly? And...

    Greetings, All! Last night, my wife and I pulled the trigger on a deal for a 5-speed manual 2010 Soul (!) in Java. Since she got the last car (a 2005 Scion xB), this one is MINE. Undoubtedly, I'll have many questions and will want to get to know all the tips, tricks and any pitfalls to avoid...

    New owner of Java Exclaim with -3/2010 built date. I have not owned 4cyl vehicle in 20 years so this will need some adjusting. A week ago I had posted on “Soul Problems” asking for feedback on auto-trans shifting problem and I got positive responses from all so I went ahead and made a purchase...

    I haven't seen any upgrades, modifications or pimped out java souls! Does anyone have one? I am interested in accessorizing, but don't know what way to go - I am thinking chrome. Ideas?

    HI everyone I am trying to decide on which color dragon decal would look best for my Java soul black or silver? my friend says silver but i think that black would look cool, and give it a shadow look. what do you think would look good?
