  1. Manual Transmission Souls and SHOPS

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hey guys, Wanted to share a recent experience of mine. I was having issues getting my car into 1st and reverse. If you let the clutch off the floor just the tiniest bit, it would start to bog down the engine in first or reverse. Took it to One of the local transmission shops here in Indy that...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hey guys, I have a 2010, Red Tomato, 2.0L 5spd, Kia Soul +. When I first got the car, at 125,900 miles in August 2017, I had to replace the Canister Purge Valve (At least I think that's the right name for it.) Up on the back of the Engine. Check Engine Light was on and I had a code of p0441...

  7. Manual transmission, hill start--problem or feature?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    We love our 2014 Soul but starting on hills is a little weird. You let out the clutch and there is a hesitation before it will start. My wife thinks this is a feature--so that you won't roll backward on the hill. If so, though, I can't find any mention of it in the manual. I've been driving...
  8. New 2014 Soul MT Owner in Minnesota

    New Member Introductions
    Recently bought a 2014 base with MT (Would have preferred the +, but lack of MT was a deal breaker). No available keyless entry or cruise was disappointing, but am hoping that I can at least add aftermarket keyless, and a steering wheel parts upgrade for cruise. Haven't seen any reports of...
