    I’m wondering if any of the models in this generation came with a turbo, and if the turbo came on the 1.6l?

    Greetings from Chicago, fellow Kia Soul forum members! We just purchased a new 2018 Soul + in Clear White, and we absolutely love the car. I've "lurked" around this forum, and you folks are quite knowledgeable. So, I decided to join. I'm sure I'll have some questions ... one is already...

    First time KIA owner. I previously had a Honda Accord but in replacing it I decided to go in a different direction so to speak. I like the higher seat/ride height - my Accord was quite low to the ground - and the more versatile and useable interior - I removed the rear seat back to make more...

    I've been on the hunt for a Soul for my 15 year old son. We purchased a 2014 Soul + Thursday. The car is in good shape overall, and has 102,000 on the odometer. Coming from all GM vehicles, I must say it's a very nice car. It's very roomy inside, has a great stereo, and lots of goodies. It's a...

    A couple weeks ago I purchased my yellow 2015 Soul Plus. It replaced my 13 year old yellow Ford Focus hatchback zx3 which treated me very well since I bought it brand new. The Soul came without a back dash/cargo cover. I found one and bought it through ebay. It also came without fog lights...

    Hi all! I just purchased a new 2016 kia soul in alien green. I wanted more info on the modes available (comfort, sport, and normal) I had been in normal as I was told it's better gas milage. Just changed to comfort and noticed a big difference in the ride. Is it more economical to pick one...

    So far we are very happy with the car. On a trip from Naples, FL to Orlando and back we only got 26 MPG. That is less than our 2014 Hyaundai Sante Fe Sport which gets right at 30 MPG on a trip. After driving it for three weeks, I'm sorry I didn't pay more for the larger 2.0 engine but read this...

    Hi Everyone, I love my new Soul! I couldn't see where I can post a question, so I hope this will be an ok place to ask my question. I was just no trying to find out where to store the cargo cover inside my car. It doesn't fit anywhere. Is it possible that Kia did not create a storage place...

    Newbie still trying to figure out all the buttons on my new Kia Soul. I downloaded the manual but prefer a book in my hands, so I ordered the manual today. I love it so far! Not sure about the shiftable transmission and when to use the ECO setting. Hence, that's why I need the manual, lol!

    Hello everyone. I got the lime green Soul the other day. No manual though and could not find an easy download. Specifically want to know how traction control works- there is a button there to the bottom left of the steering column that just shows an image and says "OFF". My first Kia.

  16. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Just picked up my 2014 Kia Soul Red Zone Edition and I love it!! Quick question, The speaker lights that light up for music or mood; how do I make them brighter? When I have it on the music its very dim and I tried pushing the + symbol on the dial but it doesn't do anything. Whereas if I have...

    No one can say this ginger doesn't have a Soul anymore! I was driving a 00 Eclipse RS until the timing belt snapped on me, 150k miles - you would think I would have replaced it by then eh? So found myself hunting for a used car, and the Soul got me. I had my heart set on a Hyundai Sonata or...

    Greetings all! I have been a Ford Ranger owner for the past 15+ years. The latest Ranger was 10 years old and repair costs were adding up. Plus it was getting too hard to ferry the kids around trying to swap between the Ranger and my wife's Altima. I needed a new 4 door car with good mpg and a...
