  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    We're looking at a couple used Souls that are out of our area. One is being sold by family of a recently deceased person and they cannot tell me which model the car is or the options as it's hundreds of miles away from them. Any way to use the VIN to get this info like with Ford and others...

    You may have an answer for this but I was surprised there was not place to put trash in my new Kia. I've rigged up both my wife's and mine with this $1.50 black pencil container from WalMart. Just used velcro to attach it to the front of the glove box between the front seats - and velcro so it...

    Is adding the KIA Interior Lighting Kit a good add-on for the money? :indecisiveness: I've seen it listed for around $300.

    I have a 2015 SX L. What is my best option to charge my phone? 120w, USB, 180w? And if the USB is unavailable, would I use the 120w or 180w? Thanks

    I verified the alloy wheel option on the 2014 base model will again only be available in the automatic transmission. Bummer. Said it before, will repeat: The base MT 2014 will be the poster child for the "affordable Soul" marketing angle, and everything from there upward is going to cost...
  6. New Member Introductions
    Hello everybody, Two days ago I bought a new 2013 Soul 2u 2 litre and love it. I bought it without the Eco option, or so I thought - not particularly crazy about it either way. When I arrived home I pressed the Eco button and a green light appeared on the dash. Silly question maybe, but do I...

    Ok really thinking of getting a soul " ! " . But the dealer is stating that they have no control over options that are listed in red type on the window sticker; so now I need to chose between cars with added options that are unwanted. Plus looking at the remote start that Kia installed a penny...

    This is inspired by the CD slot mount thread. I like that mount but it blocks the UVO screen, and it sits a bit too low for me for GPS. Then I found the Exogear Exomount, which has a special suction cup that will let you stick it on uneven dash plastic. I especially like the clamp design that...

    Just got my 2013 Exclaim and noticed on the window sticker I paid $125 for a "cargo cover". I looked at the part number on my bag and it matches what is on Kia's accessory web page at $60. Why the price difference? There is nothing installed other than someone at the factory throwing the bag in...

    Hi all. New soul owner here! Just curious about dealer options. When sitting with financial person, they tried to sell me the built-in alarm system. Since i declined, they said fine but they'd have to remove it. I didnt see anyone remove anything! Is it something that is on all vehicles...

    I mounted my Garmin 1450 LMT with it's 5" screen with one of those vent mounts available on eBay for around $8 shipped. It's a great location cause the power cord outlet is just down below under the radio and everything is totally removable and can be repositioned. The storage above the radio...

    I just recently bought a 2012 Kia Soul a couple of weeks ago and the window stickers lists a "Cargo Tray" option at $75.00. Does anyone know if that is the Cargo Logic tray with the "L" shaped velcro block things? I have the L-blocks but no cargo logic tray. Or do all Souls come with the...

    Just wondering how everyone uses the overdrive option on their Souls? Overdrive is always on unless you turn it off by the button on the gear shift. Is it best to drive with it off in the city and on while highway driving??

    Does the 2011 Kia Soul ! have the push button start? I really like the idea of not needing the key fob to open the doors. Looking to buy one with all options but this will be a deal breaker.

    Ok, I'm asking the question here, because this 'option' is listed in the manual, but when I asked my dealer about it, he just gave me a funny look. Does anyone have the backup camera with the monitor in the rearview mirror option? Or is that Kia vaporware? Aibopet, I know you installed an...

    Stopped by the brand-spanking-new Kia dealership yesterday to see what they had on the lot and checking for any news on Ignition Orange release dates. They had 7 or 8 Souls on the lot still wrapped in thier shipping finery, including a Denim SE. This dealership JUST got these cars in and...

    I just got my new Kia Soul and it came with the upgraded 8-speaker audio system with powered sub. I see the sub in the back and have verified that there are in fact 8 speakers (if you count the sub). The problem I have is that in the features guide it says there should be an option for "Power...
