    Hello everyone, This is my first post on your message board. I recently lost my 2011 nissan sentra (piece of garbage) in a flash flood :0 Now I've been shopping around and it seems like the kia soul meets all my needs within my budget. I've got my eye on a 2014 auto base model with the 1.6l...

    I have put a hold deposit on a 2014 Soul! at a dealership, and will be heading to the dealership on Friday. If all goes well, I will drive it home. Having never owned a Kia before, and never imagined in my wildest thoughts that a Kia Soul would be a vehicle I would end up with, I am looking...
  3. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I think I have identified a potential rust trap on the GEN2. It is that damned 2" wide plastic trim that surrounds the bustle on the tailgate. I washed Daisy on Friday and as I usually do I blew off all the water with my sidekick blower getting into all the crevices. However when I went out this...

    Kia Soul 2016 Base, I have found a really large opening in the body right in front of both rear wheels. Not only is is a trap for anything kicked up on the road, but there is has no draining so anything going in their stays. These are big, about the size of a fist. I am one of those...

    What it is, Soul brothers and Sisters? Almost ready to pull the trigger on a '15 ! with the Whole Shebang package. At this point, the only thing holding me back is time, as I am wanting to get my current car (2011 Hyundai Sonata) fully paid off. That time is rapidly approaching. A little...

    So I finally decided that this car fits all my needs, so I decided to go to dealership and look. My question is about the panoramic roof which I failed to check out. Can anyone tell me do both sides of the panoramic roof open, same time, one at a time? (Or just the front part) Pictures? I...

    Good day. My wife and I are considering the Soul for our next vehicle. Currently have a Toyota Camry; has about 152,000 miles on it and still running well but we would like to add a second car. My questions would address using the Soul as our "primary" vehicle thereby relegating the Camry to...

    I usually thoroughly check out my new car purchases because I tend to keep my cars over 10 years/150k miles, and some over 250k miles. Among those have been some Peugeots and Renaults! My current daily driver has been a 2002 Subaru WRX Wagon automatic. Oil and filter changes every 4k miles...

    Hey guys, I am about to purchase a soul but I am stuck between 2 that keep bugging me. I am hoping that some opinions from some owners could help me finally decide and join the ranks! So here goes, the first one is a 2011+ with a 5 speed and 6900 hundred miles. Now it does some with a salvage...

    Greetings and salutations! I've been considering buying a used Soul for quite some time now and thought I'd join to get a better idea of the pros and cons of each yr and options before I make my decision. Presently, I have a Toyota Corolla AllTrac wagon, which I love, and a 2000 Silverado (for...

    My wife is considering purchasing a new Kia Soul to replace her '06 PT Cruiser convertible. I can't really operate the build your own Kia system all that well at the main website in order to get exactly what we are looking for in the model we want or to answer all of our questions. My wife has...
  15. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Hello all. I am in the market for a daily driver for my 70 mile a day and am leaning toward the Soul. Thinking about the base model for its low entry cost. Do you think this would be adequate or are the extra featureson the + worth the extra $$$. Keep in mind that I currently drive a Jeep...

    I'm not quite a Soul owner yet... I'm about to take the plunge! I've been looking around for a new car for about 3 weeks, and have narrowed my choices down to the Soul. Probably going to be the Plus or Exclaim as my wife hates driving stickshift. I keep telling her that she can learn, but...
  19. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I test drove a Soul + yesterday. I was surprised on how much I like about the vehicle. The prices are good too and you all know how good the warranty is. Things I did not like were that the seats were like stone and the steering wheel seems positioned in a lower position that I am...
  20. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    The day I purchased my Soul I noticed stopping sometimes felt like it had some resistance...like the car wanted to keep going. I attributed this to the extra weight it had compared to my previous car. Having owned it for a while now and having also experienced this in another Soul, i'm...
