  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I have the service manuals for both the 1.6L and 2.0L souls from 2010-2012. If anyone needs them, I have them hosted at this link: They all include a table of contents and should be searchable.
  2. Soul Problems (Gen 3)
    I’ve had my 2.0L Manual LX for a little over a week and have loved every second. BUT… Why would my Soul be running rich? Or is it? It idles fine, runs great, but the average is 19 mpg which seems low to me. Especially for what’s posted by Kia at 25/31 mpg for the LX Manual Transmission. My gas...

    Back in November of '18 I purchased my '15 Kia Soul base manual after searching for a smaller car which for me had to have a manual transmission. I never considered a Soul until I saw one online for a good price. After going and test driving mine I absolutely loved it. I bought it with 61K miles...
  4. Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    Hello all, I'm looking at purchasing a '20 Soul LX Manual. Does anyone know if the procedure for adding cruise and keyless entry will be similar to the Gen 2 models? I did a bit of digging, but didn't find anything related to the topic quite yet. Apologies if I missed it. Thanks, and looking...
  5. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I am having a tough time getting my soul started, at first it would start after 2 or 3 tries and now its after 20 tries. It's not the battery and it makes the starting sound but no engine sounds, and sometimes giving it a little gas while cranking it will make it start but not always. I...
  6. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I have seen the videos, and install seems easy enough. But where do I get an OEM kit for my Soul. All the kits require a heated wheel.....really, what is that? Remember I have a base manual which I love. The only kit I can seem to find is a cheesy after market stick looking devise for around 3...
  7. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I searched for this but no joy. The manual tells you how to turn on eco mode. I do and the eco lits up green in the cluster. It also says when you restart the car it will still be in eco mode. When I restart sometimes the eco is not lit,is it still in eco mode ? My other question for you long...
  8. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I can only find info for older models. And i also saw conflicting information about which mtf to put in because kia changed the recommended fluid? Can you change the fluid without lowering the car from jackstands? i only have those plastic ramps. Any information is appreciated.
  9. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I just got a 2018 with 32k miles from Hertz sales in Roseville. I was looking thru the manual for info on the jacking points so I could rotate the tires.. No "J" section in index.. Of course its under the "I" section titled "If you have a flat tire" That cracked me up. Mike
  10. Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    Anyone try a manual 2020 yet and have impressions? (I now have some! Also a warning) EDIT: Warning/FYI for anyone who is planning to drive a manual model. First gear is NOT just a matter of going left and up. Its hidden and you have to lift the reverse lock out to get it. I was in third...
  11. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Does anyone here have the Service Manual for a 2011 Soul, 2.0L engine? And is willing to share it? I have the 2012 SM (both engines), and although the body and suspension are identical, the engine and transmission are different. And the steering is electrical, not hydraulic. I see the 2011 for...

    Hi everyone, I just got a 2019 Base with a manual transmission in Alien 2. It must have been one of the last few available in the nation! As I was leaving the dealer (LaFontaine in Dearborn, Michigan), the sales manager said he just took a call from someone in Louisiana (I think it was LA)...

  14. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    What range of replacement costs of clutch parts+labor do you see in your area? Got a quote of just under $800 including resurfacing flywheel.
  15. 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...
  16. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Seems to be no interest in NorCal at all. 5 Local Dealers have none in stock. Closest ones are in LA, 500+ miles away. A friend that liked mine is taking the trek down to buy one. I'm doubting if KIA will continue them for the US market with such low sales numbers. Too bad, I really love mine!.
  17. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Where is a good place to find information on how to disassemble my center console? I have a 2018 Kia Soul base model. I am looking to add a USB charging port for the rear seats. Thanks

    Hi all, About one year ago I purchased a 2017 base with manual transmission, I love it. However, I live in the northeast and my experience last winter 'strongly suggested' switching out all weather to snow tires this coming winter and into the future. Snow tires/wheels are reasonable, but...
