    Getting ready to do the first brake job at 73k miles on my 2011 Soul ! sport. The mechanic is telling me that I will "probably need rotors". I asked why since the brakes just started to squeak and he said something about "these new brakes tend to last longer before the first change, but you...

  7. 2nd Front Brake Job, what give's ?

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    With over 130,000 miles, I suppose 2 front brake jobs is OK ! And the 1st was only pads @ about 70K miles. At that time rears were still in excellent shape. This time around I replaced Rotors too, well needed at this point (pictures) Rears are still good @ only Aprox 20% usage ( Yes 130,000...

I took it back to the dealer and they said it was the tire shine they put on and they will redo my clear...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I just had my 2011 Soul in at the dealership for my service #2 (oil change/tire rotation) and they told me I need a brake job done as there is some rust and wear on the brakes. Knowing nothing about cars, this seems a bit soon to me as I only have 24,000 km on the car. I asked the technician...

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I'm sure I'll be having to do a brake pad/rotor replacement soon on my 2010 Soul 4u. Has anyone else here done one and if so, are there any tricks involved or is it a simple swap? Lastly...are the caliper pistons the type that can be squeezed with a c-clamp or do they have to be twisted with...

  17. My first wash/wax job on a car ever!

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Totally washed and waxed my Soul today for the first time. My first time ever in fact since this is the first car worthy of waxing. I always bought used cars that wasn't worth a wax job. I gotta say it gives you a workout. My arms feel like they are about to fall off. I had to go over the...

    Hey everyone, Not sure how many other people have run into this, but it looks like the clear coat on my Kia Soul Sport is already getting beaten up by the unusually hot weather here in the Pacific NW. I see spider-thread scratches all over in the red paint already, and I have only had the...
