  1. ISG “Stop and Go” problem

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello I drive a 2013 Soul + with the whole Eco package. Lately every now and then when I turn on the car the ISG button turns on hello and won’t let me leave first gear. When I turn the car on and off again sometimes it comes back on and sometimes it goes away. I continue to turn it on and off...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi there. Kia soul owner here. I was driving along and was mad or something and thought I would floor it. Big mistake on my part. Smoke started pouring out the exhaus and it did not go faster. It did rev higher though it just didn't respond the way I thought it would. I'm just wondering how to...

    New Member Introductions
    I recently took my 2016 Kia Soul in for its routine oil change. While there, the service manager said that there was a problem with the front Brake piston that caused the brake pads to wear unevenly. Although, I had no brake problems, I agreed to replace the front Brake pads. 43000K miles and...

The bracket (which is plastic) on the windshield wiper arm that holds the blade assembly disintegrated. The whole arm has to be replaced, the dealer immediately noted to me it...

This has been going on since I bought the car in 2014. However, it has become more frequent. I have replaced two tires for various reasons. Also, it is...

    Hi All, I'm having a problem with the audio in my 2013 Base. I have the standard audio, with no amplifier (I took off the rear trim to be certain). Occasionally, and intermittently, the audio output level is suddenly greatly reduced (but never altogether eliminated). In this state, I need to...
