  1. Leather Steering Wheel Cover

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 3)
    My EX Designer's Collection has a "leather wrapped" steering wheel. Oddly, it is hard as a rock and sort of uncomfortable. Also, as summer is upon us in the desert Southwest, touching a black steering wheel after work is pretty low on my list, down there with fixing plumbing. I ordered this...
  2. Steering Wheel Swap from Forte/CEE'D

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Hi guys! I wanted to post some pics of my steering wheel swap. I wanted leather and a different look so I installed a steering wheel from a 2017 Forte. It wasn't plug and play. I did gain radio MUTE control on the steering wheel but had to solder a different resistor in the controls to get...
  3. Leather Seats got hot on me tonight

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hello all, I have a 2016 kia soul + with the signature package 2.0. I work nights so tonight when I was driving home my driver seat was cooking my back side as well as my lower back. I have leather seats in the car but there is no heated option. I was little sweaty from working as I work on...

  5. Genuine or synthetic interior leather?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Hey everyone, I am waiting on the arrival of a 2016 Soul SX Luxury model but have one outstanding question which no one has been able to 100% answer for me. Is the "leather" interior genuine leather, or is it synthetic? My Kia rep knows this question could be a deal breaker for me and stated...
  6. What things really are leather in '16 Soul + With Nav

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hi - we bought two Souls over the holidays. My wife has a "less-intimidating" base model, mine is the + with Nav/Sound. I read somewhere where with this combination you get some leather trim. I think the shifter has leather, the steering wheel has 'leather' and I'm wondering about the curved...
  7. Are Sheepskin seat covers (BAAAAAAAAAH)D for the leather heated seats ?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    With this all Black interior and Black Leather seats I was wondering if a set of Sheepskin seat covers made for a Soul would be a problem for the Leather uphosterly as it gets quite hot in there before you get the AC going and the give it a variation to the monotone interior .
  8. Leather Steering Wheel Downgrade/Swap

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    I'm buying a new Soul with the packages I want and it comes with a leather steering wheel. I would like to replace the steering wheel with the non-leather one. I have one dealership offering to sell me a non-leather steering wheel for ~$600 but they refuse to swap the wheels for me. Do you have...
  9. Leather Wrapped Shift Knob?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Does anyone know where I can find one for a 2010? A short throw that is similar in shape to the stock one? Even better, one that is more of the "boomerang"/ergonomic shape?
  10. Added "leather" steering wheel cover

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    So one of the few drawbacks of buying the base model is that the steering wheel is rubber. I think it's still rubber on the Plus model too, but I wasn't going to buy an Exclaim model just for a leather steering wheel. So I bought a "genuine leather" steering wheel cover on eBay and thought I got...
  11. 2014 Sightings??- Plus w/ gray two tone Leather seats?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Has anyone seen a 2014 Plus with the Primo package with the gray two tone leather seats? All the photos I find where a dealer lists two tone leather are stock photos of a black leather interior or of cloth seats. Does the two tone gray leather even exist or does the Plus come with only black...

  13. Leather in black only?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I looked at the Soul build site and the only leather color I see is black? No tan? Am I correct?
  14. How to re-stitch your leather steering wheel with colored thread

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    So I got my new soul base M/T on a lease last week. LOVE the car! My main gripes with the base are that it doesn't come with cruise control, keyless entry, and that cheap rubberized steering wheel makes my hands sweat, but I had to have the 1.6. When test driving the 2.0 actually felt more...
  15. Steering Wheel leather Question

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Hello Hamsters: I have a quick question. It hasn't been a month and I am noticing that the stitching is showing at the bottom of the steering wheel. Is this normal on this vehicle? (Before I bring this up at the dealership.) Thanks for the info. Picture attached.
  16. Soul Exclaim Leather seat question???

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I read somewhere in an earlier post (don't remember if on this forum or not) that the leather in the Exclaim model was not holding up after about 4000 miles on the person's oidometer. They complained about wrinkling and a very "thin" type leather thet was not holding up.:mad: Has anyone with...
  17. Front Driver's Seat Leather "wrinkling"

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Good day all, I bought my Exclaim in Feb 2012. I have noticed over the past few days that a section of my front driver's set is starting to "wrinkle". All the seats have been treated and conditioned as a preventative and maintenance. Was just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this...
  18. Soul Sport Red Leather Console Cover To Match Interior

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Hey! I have a few pics on here of my 2010 Soul Sport with the Red Interior... I did the console myself with a simulated Leather that matches up almost perfectly... I'd say it is about a 99% perfect match. I have some left over, enough to do about 7 more console arm rests. I don't need it...
  19. Leather seat covers

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Does anyone know where I can get leather or fake leather seat covers for my 2011 soul plus? I googled it and all I got was coverking which is annoying I don't want to spend 500 dollars or 800 like for the katzskin ones. I am a broke college student so the most I am willing to spend is 150-200...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I have just recently started looking into the Kia Soul and am considering purchasing one. So far I think they are adorable and perfect for me! I have one quick question..probably a silly one...Does the Soul come with leather interior? or only cloth? Thanks...sorry if this question has been asked...
