    New Member Introductions

  2. 2014 Base m/t keyless entry receiver?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I know this information has been answered somewhat. But I’m confused as to if Kia can actually program a remote to the car or not. Does it have the receiver? I was told it would be pricey, but that’s not my concern. My concern is does the car actually have the receiver to accept the programming...
  3. Purchased a 2014 KIA Soul Base 1.6l M/T

    New Member Introductions
    First time KIA owner. I previously had a Honda Accord but in replacing it I decided to go in a different direction so to speak. I like the higher seat/ride height - my Accord was quite low to the ground - and the more versatile and useable interior - I removed the rear seat back to make more...
  4. New Member from South Carolina - M/T

    New Member Introductions
    Hello, I'm a new owner in South Carolina. Just got a Manual. Haven't bought a car since 2004 (Manual Toyota Rav4). Didn't realize certain things were not "standard" since this was a newer car. So I am here to see what options I have to upgrade on my own. :eek-new:
  5. FNG with a new to me 2014 Soul Base M/T

    New Member Introductions
    Figured I'd get the newbie intro out of the way. I bought my new to me 14 Soul Base on Friday. Little story I guess, but why not right? So, I needed a new vehicle seeing as how my 98 Grand Cherokee had 259k on it. Everything was starting to go, and I was tired of fixing it. Anywho, I had strick...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hi folks, new to the forum (although lurked here for a while before finally picking up a new 2016 Base M/T in Alien II over the weekend!), thanks to all for all the useful information I've reviewed here. Already have plans to do the cruise control add on project as well as the switch to...

  8. New 2015 base M/T owner

    New Member Introductions
    Hello everyone. I just purchased a base 2015 with a manual transmission. I've only put about 100 miles on it so far. My other cars are a 2015 AWD Sportage (for the wife) and my good weather car: a 1999 Miata. I'm really enjoying the Soul. It replaces a 2006 Rio LX, while my wife's Sportage...

  10. 2015 M/T Cruise Control upgrade

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    Ok, so I purchased a 2015 M/T the other day and want to add Cruise Control. I read the post on here that shows the following part # and how to do it. (Steering wheel harness: 56190-B2400 Cruise Control Switch (Black): 96700-B2100ASB). I call my local Kia dealer to see if adding this will void...
  11. 2 months and 5500 miles later, my m/t

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I meant to post when we got back from our road trip, but I was frazzled, spaced out, and then just got busy. So a week-ish after I got my car, with about 300 (I think) miles on it, we drove from TX to CA, straight through. I tried moving little's carseat from the middle, but couldn't get a safe...

  14. 2012 Soul+ M/T owner

    New Member Introductions
    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and to owning a Soul. I've been a long-time Honda owner, and after a recent smash decided to go with a Soul. Drove a few and decided that I wanted a manual transmission for these curvy mountain roads that I live on (and I am a bit of a control freak, so I did...
  15. 2014 Silver Base M/T Owner

    New Member Introductions
    Just became a Soul owner yesterday and thought I should say Hi! Wouldn't have thought it would've been the car I chose but it seemed to fit my criteria for roomy and affordable better than anything else out there. I hope I am as happy as most everyone here seems to be.
  16. Just bought my first Kia (2012 Soul+, 2.0L, M/T). Hello from Alabama.

    New Member Introductions
    After a long and arduous search for a suitable car I could afford, I finally took the leap and chose to get a Soul. I'm coming from a 2006 VW Jetta that was pretty fun to mod, so I'm excited about the prospect of some DIY projects in my near future. This seems like a fairly active forum, so I...
  17. Bye bye '11 Soul Base 1.6 M/T

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    As much as I loved my Kia soul base, it was time to trade her in. I bought her used with 14k for 13k (she was 15k). Many memories were there in the Soul. It helped bring my in labour fiancé to the hospital doing 90 MPH during traffic, was an amazing "off-roader", spacious, and overall great car...
  18. Issues with M/T 2011 Base

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I bought my certified pre-owned Soul almost exactly one year ago, and I love everything about it...except the manual transmission. I've only owned and driven M/T cars since my first first car at age 16, and I have NEVER stalled out so many times as I have in my Soul in 1st gear. My partner is...

    So I just got my Soul today; 2.0 manual transmission with 164 HP. Any suggestions for a chip that won't void my warranty? :cool:
  20. New 2013 Soul Base M/T Owner from South Florida

    New Member Introductions
    I bought my Soul in Cape Coral, but I roll around in Fort Lauderdale. Got the base model about as stock as it gets. White Ext w/ Black Int. Now I have a blank canvas to play with. Stick Shift is the only way to drive it. Kinda disappointing that Kia doesn't allow "standard" options to apply...
