  1. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi all, I'm brand new to the forum. I have a 2012 Kia Soul that I bought a few months ago. I have not had any issues with it until this morning. When I went to open the door, it would not open. I thought it was frozen shut. I tried pulling on it a few times and it finally opened up. BUT when...

    there is a rattle coming from the tailgate door. It comes and goes. It has been "repaired" twice-but it keeps coming back. Anyone with similar situation? Any advise?
  3. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Car just hit around 60K and I've had two problems creep up. Problem 1 Pulled the hood release and the handle came off in my hand. $15 in parts and I'm back in business. Problem 2 When I open the drivers door I hear a thud. I lubed it up with some white lithium grease. The grease didn't stop...

    My 2011 Soul had intermittent issues with the passenger door (and now drivers door) not openning from the outside from time of purchase. Got worse over a year and a half. Dealer couldn't fix until they saw it happen. Finally was happening all the time and they fixed the latch. Drivers door...

    I was cleaning my car and noticed right below the seat belt latch in the door pillar where the seat belt sits I had some nicks/dings. It seems when you release/unlatch the seat belt after use, it retracts and the seat belt latch dings the pillar where it resides. If you look right below where...

    anyone else having problems getting their rear seats to re latch after being folded down ? My dirvers side one seems to require a couple of hefty shoves to get it to latch back in place.
  9. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Has any experienced one of their doors not opening from the outside? It opens from the inside great and all the other ones do too. I can here the door lock motor working as well. It is basically like a "reverse child lock" type of problem. Any thoughts? Kia is looking at it Friday so...and...
