    Got a 2010 Soul 2U with 202,000km on it. Car is in good shape, and is well-maintained - regular oil changes, plugs were done about a year ago with NGK Iridiums, fuel injector/system cleaner is used 3-4 times per year, lots of high-ish speed highway driving, no CEL's on, always use good-quality...

    My wiring has been double checked by a pro who told me that it is good to go. Also, he didn't know how to connect to the system control terminal of the stock power amp. So I have no sound. Had to put the stock deck back. Does anyone know what I connect that wire to? Infinity system wiring...

    I know we have the topic about what oil we use and that made me wonder if everyone just uses the cheapest regular gas or adds additives or what? Rich

    We have a new 2014 base and I have the chance to get 17" premium wheels from a 2012 Sportage. Looks like 215 55 17's will fit on these wheels and be equal to the diameter of the 235 45 18's that come on the ! Is the offset different on these Sportage wheels? Bolt pattern is the same. Thanks for...

    Aloha, My wife and I will be pulling the trigger on a new 2013 dune exclaim very soon. Luckily it looks like the dealer we are working with will have both a premium package and a non premium package in the dune color for us to choose from. We keep going back and forth whether the premium package...

    Hello, I am considering myself lucky for finding a Moss Green Exclaim with the Premium Pkg within 200 miles of STL. I was going to hold out a bit longer, but apparently these things are very rare around here. Take care, Onehappydogstl

    "An available premium package includes heated front seats, leather seat trim, automatic climate control, a navigation system, and push button start with a smart key." Does anyone know what company (Garmin, Tom Tom, etc.) makes the Nav system? How big is the screen? Do you give up anything...

    I live in SoCal and am looking to purchase my New 2012 Soul !! with the premium package around mid-end of December. I have begun to look around, and so far have NOT come across an "Exclaim" model yet. Base, and Plus seem to be the only ones on lots, if they last a bit after getting off the...

    I have a 2010 Shadow Dragon Soul with the premium speakers and they seem to vibrate on high bass. It's really kind of annoying seeing the bass really isn't the greatest either. Anyone else notice this problem?
