  2. M6 trans service at the local dealer?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Today was my first visit to my local Kia dealer for a oil change on a new to me 2015 base M6. I asked for a quote on a trans drain and fill and was quoted 150.00 plus tax. Ouch. It might take the tech 10 minutes to drain and fill a manual trans with 2 quarts of fluid. Why so much?
  3. Soul Tag Game started in Local Souls / USA / Northeast

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Please allow me to post a notice here that I started a Mid-Atlantic Soul Tag game in the Local Souls / USA / Northeast section of this forum. It appears that area does not get a high volume of "foot traffic" so I wanted to just let folks know about it in case they want to join in on the fun, or...

    New 2014 Kia Soul - Lithia Springs GA - Thornton Road Kia I really want to like this...but I guess I'll have to see it in the flesh to know for sure. Often these types of photos are under fluorescent lights which can really change the color shade quite a this may or may not be totally...
  7. Discouraging fuel economy and local dealer

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I have a 2012 Base Kia Soul with Automatic Transmission that I bought at the end of May last year. At this point, I have just under 16,000 miles on it. The gas mileage has been a disappointment - the only disappointment - from the beginning. Instead of getting better after the break-in period...
  8. Had to contact Kia's 800# about local dealer

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Finally bought my first NEW car, it's a 2011 Kia Soul +. Problem is with the dealer who really cheated me. Charged $2000 for Crystal Fusion windshield coating telling me it was part of the extended warranty. Found out later it was all smoke and mirrors. Also, promised me $6,000 trade on my old...
  9. Are your local highways full of [email protected]&!#$ too?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I didn't expect my Soul to look new forever, but it's only 3500 miles old and this afternoon I ran over some construction debris on I5 (big piece of metal strapping) which put a 2 in. gouge in the paint (deep) with dent. Wonder how much that'll end up costing me. Anybody have a reasonable body...
  10. Local mini meets

    Since we have quite a few in the GTA, Durham region does anyone want to have regular meets weekly, monthly? The Montana's in Ajax has vintage car meets in the parking lot and I though maybe we should do the same at a central location.
  11. Checking out the local soul inventory

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I've become interested again in something I used to do 20 or 30 years ago, cruising the car lots on sunday when they are closed. Two weeks ago the KIA dealer had about a dozen souls including a Ghost se4 and a used se1 denim. Today they are both gone and there were about 10 + models in shadow...
  12. local SE 2 Commercial

    Kia Soul News
    I bought my Kia from this dealer, and they actually had the car in the commercial on the lot. I told the salesman I wanted an SE2 and he was like, well, we have one but I can't sell it to you , it was in a commercial and the stunt man tore up the rear axle. So I asked if we could at least...
  13. Need advice for local shops

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Hey all, I live in Louisville, KY and am wanting to do the 3M Clear Bra on my Soul, but am totally unfamiliar with any shops in town. I don't really want to pay the dealer markup for this job, so is there anyone local to me who can recommend a shop or individual to do this?
  14. Local Kia News

    Kia Soul News
    Looks like Kia is jumping on an opportunity to fill the GM vacuum: I really lilke this because it's close to home and will be the only Kia dealership that doesn't require a 30 minute drive for me. No matter...

  16. Local Dealer or Service Experiences and Feedback

    How about starting a local dealer experience thread? Here is my contribution I have to put in a good word for Kia Vancouver on a corner of Cambie and Marine Drive. My buying experience was awesome, I got top dollar for my trade, went through a no hassle, no BS price negotiation and flawless and...
