  1. Clunk noise in rear going over small bumps at low speeds

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I just bought a 2015. Kia soul base with roughly 51k. I heard a clunking noise going at low speeds over bumps in the road. Dealer replaced back brakes and back shocks. Still makes the noise. Im running out of answers it can be, any clues?
  2. 2013 + 2.0 Manual Low Compression?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I just picked up a 2013 Kia Soul + 2.0 manual, inspected it and all that and it seemed fine. When I park the car in gear with no parking brake, however, I can push the car enough to make the engine turn over while it's in first gear. The same will happen if I try to park it on any sort of...
  3. Low MPG, give it a while or take it in?

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Background: 2017 Soul+ bought used, ex rental with 34,715 miles on it. I use it as a grocery getter/medical wagon/gad about town, so within the next couple of years it will likely become a low mileage car. Also noteworthy is that it's been in the high 90s and humid here since I bought it, which...
  4. LED replacement bulbs for fog lights and low beam projectors?

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Hey, guys. I’m new to the Kia Soul game, but I’ve been modding and loving cars for over 20 years. I can’t seem to find info on which LED lamps have been tried and tested in the 2nd gen Soul. This is a very popular mod in a lot of car cultures, so I find it curious that there seems to be so...
  5. Low Voltage Alert verbal warning

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Since when do KIA Souls talk? I've had this car since it was FOB in 2012 & it has been great. Just before xmas I was returning from a trip to Oregon to the SF Bay Area and the car started shouting "Low voltage!" and repeated every minute or so 10 minutes from home. It continued to shout with...
  6. Thanksgiving Trip resulted in a 5mpg dip in my 2017 !, what's up with that?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    This past thanksgiving weekend, I took a trip from Northern Alabama to Kansas City. 100% interstate driving. 80% of the time I was probably cruising at 75 mph, the rest of the time was probably between 60 and 70. My 2017 ! is my commuter car and regularly gets approx 28 mpg with 80%...
  7. Calculated range - seems low

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    The Soul (all variants) has a 14.2 gallon fuel tank. At 30 MPG or so, our new to us (bought it used with 12,500 miles) turbo should have about a 420 mile range. But last night my wife complained that it was showing 350 miles range after a fill up, which is more like 24 mpg. I'm not so worried -...

  9. Low Profile VS Regular Profile Tires

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    I know one of the reasons the Soul rides a little stiff is because of the Low Profile tires it come with, What about using a taller sidewall like we all used to do (225/75R18) for example. I wonder how big/tall a tire would fit without rubbing. I have 18" rims on my Exclaim ! .
  10. Low Beam Bulbs

  11. Suggestions on selling my original wheels with very low miles

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    I bought my 2013+ on May 23, 2013. About December 15, 2013 when the car had about 3500 miles on it I bought some really cool black wheels. The originals have been in storage ever since. Of course they are in excellent condition. I've tried Craigslist a couple of times and had no luck; not...

  13. 2016 Soul SE SPORT - Seats too Low

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I traded my 2013 SOUL 4U - Full load for a 2016 Soul SE Sport (Two tone White with Red) Buyers remorse as I much prefer my 2013. I am 5'1". I loved the height and vision when driving my 2013 - Soul 4U - Full Load. I looked out the centre of the windshield and had no vision problems. Now the...

    after having to jumpstart my soul two days in a row. i decided to take it in for service. i checked the voltage when i got it running and it was at 13.3 volts (should be 14.6). The kia dealership replaced the battery and alternator and it still only puts out 13.3 volts. kia says this is fine...

  17. Do your low gas dashes blink?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Aren't they supposed to blink after 15mi? Can anyone that has a 2010-2011 Soul answer this? I've never seen my dashes blink in the almost 5 years I've owned this car.

  19. Low beam lights

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Hey all, I'm looking to replace my low beam lights simply because I do not like the yellow tinge the OEM ones give off. I have a 2013 + and either want clear lights that do not give off any shade of color, or slightly blue tinted. Could anyone direct me to a brand and/or site that sells these...

    This morning I got my BC Racing V1 coilovers installed at my local mechanic. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. Needs a lot of tweaking in the back (which my mechanic is helping me figure out a solution) but the front is perfect. I cannot get over how great it looks. (: (: (: BEFORE AFTER (Excuse my...
