  2. New to the Hamster Life

    New Member Introductions
    I live Southwest of Chicago and a few weeks ago I bought myself a 2017 Soul ! in Titanium Grey. So far I love it. I originally wanted to get a Fiesta ST but the ol' ball and chain talked me into a more family oriented set of wheels. However since I was looking at a FiST I had to get the new ...
  3. Trunk hatch lift supports go bad?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I never had the lift supports on any car go bad before and mine just went bad yesterday. I have to hold up my trunk now if I want to get in there. I went on ebay and found two supports for less than $30 new. They are cheap to buy I guess. Part# 81780-2K000 I wonder if the extreme heat did it.

  5. Stock battery life

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Hey all, 2012 Soul +, still has the original battery. How much longer should I expect this to last? It tests out ok at this moment. I have no issue, I just wonder if it is just a 36month, I'm due. When (or has it yet) did your stock battery go? How many more months should I expect to get...

    New Member Introductions
    Just wanting to introduce myself (Zipperhead 011) I'm a disabled Vet who looked around and found my 2015 Soul SX and am yet to take her home to Momma . Just one question why equip a Soul with 18" tires if you can't fit the same tire as a spare in the tire well ?

    I own a 2013 Kia Soul + with enough extras that it just shy of an ! by not having leather or bigger wheels...(which I think those rims look like sunflowers).

  10. Life Hacker says Marc is right

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Overall Scores We debated ditching "overall scores" this time around, since it becomes harder and harder to tally them up fairly, and it's more important to look at each individual category than it is some arbitrary score. But everyone likes a winner, so we've kept this section at the end for...
  11. Farm life, gravel dust, mud

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    We bought our 2012 base soul Monday night. I live on a gravel road, and work on a horse farm. So to say our soul has a rough life ahead of it, is an understatement. My first plan will be to install mud flaps but I wondered if I can put wheel well covers on the soul? I have seen them on jeeps...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Has anyone else experienced very short headlight bulb life? I have a 2010 soul, bought in 2009. I will now be installing my 3rd bulb in at least one headlamp. I replaced the stock bulb with a sylvania bulb, not sure which one exactly. I just found a receipt in the car for about $25.00 I'm...

    Didn't have seatbelt on. Airbag did deploy as i collided head on into a tree. This was the Shadow Dragon edition to! Came out of accident with just a acetabulum fracture in my hip. Going to be down for about 6 weeks but many people have told me that I am very lucky and the Soul literally saved...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have a Soul Sport 5 speed, and happened to ask my service rep about the cost to replace the clutch when it becomes necessary...he told me about $995...any ideas on what sort of life we can expect out of the Soul clutch...obviously varies per driver, but ballpark. Dealer could not tell me other...
