  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I rotated the tires on the Soul a couple of weeks ago and discovered that the scissors jack and the jack points (the unibody pinch weld sites) behave/are designed differently than the Toyotas and Hondas that we have had in the past. The Toyota and Honda vehicles have "saddles" on the scissor...

    Hi there... Just bought a 2016 Soul and I have a couple of kayaks I have to carry. Where are the tie down points at the front and back? All I can find is plastic underneath.
  3. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Tried to mount SSD Hybrid rack today. Major setback with the mounting points on the roof. Took the caps off and only one of the four studs would thread in. Off to look for a tap and hope it doesn't totally bugger the threads. Anybody else had this problem? I wonder if it would be covered...

    Does anyone have a diagram of the jack and stand points on the 14/15 soul? The manual is totally useless and doesn't show you anything, need to install a trailer hitch today but have no idea where it's safe to jack it up or place the stands.

    Hi, I'm going to be carrying a canoe on my 2010 Kia Soul. I was wondering where the best points would be to tie down the bow and stern of the canoe. I am having a hard time coming up with a good option. All help is appreciated.
  8. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I just joined this forum, so I'm not sure this is the proper place to post this question, but I'll give it a shot. I just bought a 2011 Kia Soul, base model, with a 5-speed, manual transmission. I was reading through the owners manual, trying to determine the proper shift points, i.e., at what...

    Hey... I wondered if anyone knows if the 12 volt charging points on the Soul are 2 way? I have a Shaker and there's one by the usb port and one on the right hand side wall of the boot. I ask because I'd like to use a small cooler in the boot and wanted to connect a solar charger to either of...

    The soul has way different gearing than any other car I've owned previously. Just wondering at what RPM most people cruise at? What RPM do you shift gears at?
