  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    "New" Soul (2014-present) vs. "Old" Soul (2012-2013): my first hand observations Ok, my brother is up to almost 15k miles on his 2014 Soul and has had it about a year. Since I own a 2012 auto 1.6, and a 2013 stick 1.6, and he has a 1.6, and I have worked on and drove, and rode in, all of the...
  2. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Finally I got to actually see in person the brand new 2014 Soul for the very first time (and many of you will know I've been waiting a long time for this). The model I checked out was the base EX model in Titanium (for our US neighbours, that's similar to a base Plus model) however ours are...

    I've had my 2014 Shadow Black Exclaim with the Sun and Sound Package for 4 days and have driven it about 300 miles.

    Tomorrow marks the 1 year anniversary of me & my soul. Not winter driven, driven twice between snow storms this month. Read many complaints on the hard ride with 18s, I just don't get it. I'm a senior citizen with a lot of aches and pains and find absolutely no problem with the ride. What are...
  7. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I have had a Soul brochure for about a month now, and I finally sat down and really looked at it. The + is/will be available in 9 colors. The base 3, the ! 5, and the Sport 5. Is this the same in other countries?
