  1. Soul owner for a week! Here are my (minor) annoyances.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hey everyone! I am liking my 2016+ with audio package overall but a few things are annoying to me. Not enough to be deal breakers but if any Kia engineers are reading... :chuncky: 1. Automatic window switches are too sensitive. When trying to adjust the window a crack it gets sent way up or...
  2. Steering wheel minor misalignment after steering recall?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I just had the steering recall done on my 2015 soul, which has just 8100 miles. At the same time they did the recall they also rotated the tires. Now when I drive it I need to tilt the wheel slightly right, whereas before it was dead center. The car also pulls very slightly to the left. I very...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    For those with minor dents and scratches like mine, what are you guys doing to either take care of the scratch and ding or cover it up? ive been thinking about ordering a few of these bandage decals to cover the little things. lol...
  4. Minor Nitnoids

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Bought my 2014 Plus in July and already have 12K miles on it (daily driving and a couple of trips to Northern Wisconsin). Love the car, especially the panoramic sunroof, adjustable steering feel, and heated steering wheel but have the following issues that have bothered me: 1. Mileage is just...
  5. Had Minor accident, need help with part info

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I have a 2011 soul. Last week I got into a minor fender bender. Luckily I just got clipped on the rear passenger side and only damage was to bumper cover. Just going to fix out of pocket as bumper cover is Around $200 and deductible is $500. I noticed the plastic piece in the wheel well needs...
  6. New Owner Soul Exclaim, minor problem

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello,Just got my new 2013 Exclaim home and spent some time looking it over. Most everything is Good, except the Light in the glovebox is not working. Its too far to drive to the dealer right away, I figured I'd wait a few weeks and see if anything else needs attention. So I checked the...
  7. Minor accident; looking for driver's fender in Titanium Silver

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Well, I guess it had to happen at some point. On my way home late last week, I met a work truck on a one lane section of road and he couldn't stop fast enough and slid down my front driver's side fender. Fortunately, that's where 99% of the damage is located aside from a minor paint scuff on the...
  8. Minor Collision damage HELP!

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hey all! I was rear ended this morning at a red light. I have literally had my Soul for a month (still has temp tag on it). Like an idiot I didn't get the persons insurance info probably because I was so relieved that my bumper was still attached to my car and I was in complete shock that this...
  9. Bumper off of a 2012 + minor damage

    For sale / Trade / Wanted
    Hey Guys, Im selling the rear bumper that came off my 2012 soul. I posted the story in the general discussion. Its a 2012 Black Cherry (Shadow). There is minor damage on the lower left hand side where it was pressed against the actual bumper, and there is one broken clip. It is the farthest...
  10. 2011 Soul rear ended by 2001 F-150 (minor accident)

    Owners Photo Gallery
    Soul vs F-150 Classic scenario: Chain reaction of cars slamming on their brakes, as do I. I was completely stopped when I heard tires screeching behind me and braced for impact. Honestly, I was scared to get out of my car to see how bad it was... needless to say, I was pretty impressed :)...
  11. Few Minor issues.

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My car has in the past done the "door handle not working in cold/wet weather", along with the door solenoid clicking when driving. Now its doing the "farting noise from the rear wiper", even when its not touching the screen (sounds like the teeth on a gear slipping) but the wiper works fine and...
  12. Minor curb rash on stock rims. What paint to repair?

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Thinking about picking up an extra set of used stock rims for winter tires. One of them has some slight rash. Wanted to smooth it out, fill, and paint to match the silver. But what paint matches best? Anybody out there know? Thanks.
  13. Minor Irritations

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    While I love my Soul, there are some minor irritations: When you put the back seats upright after they've been down,the seat belts always get stuck behind the seat. I have the Exclaim, and road noise is pretty bad. Ride is harsh with the 18" wheels. Drivetrain is not smooth, it shifts rough...
