    Hi gang, I'm thinking of getting the oil tested on one my cars (not Kia but a Hyundai with the 2.4L GDI, so similar engine in some models between the two makes). I will probably use Blackstone which I see most of you recommend in this forum. I just changed to fresh fully synthetic so my...
  2. A question for coilovers owners

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    How low are you guys able to get the rear? I have megans and the front was easy, but I still have some wheel Gap in the rear. It seems like there's too much spring to get it to go any lower.

    I'm looking to purchase a 2013 from a used car dealer a couple hours away. They are wholesaling a few cars with issues. This car is an automatic with 103k for much lower than KBB.

  7. 2010 Soul 2.0 5M Starter - Puzzler Question

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I just pulled the bad starter from my 2010 Soul+ 2.0l 5M, and the replacement I got from Rock Auto was a little longer at both ends than the one that came out. I checked the specs on the website, and the part number was correct for my manual trans, so I figured maybe it was a manufacturer...
  8. Interior question

    New Member Introductions
    I have my 2015 base in for the cat converter recall and I found that the 2015 does come with a center storage box arm rest. Mine did not come with one and KIA parts department told me there wasn't any available. I have a manual trans and think it would be great to have you. What would I need to...

    Got a remote starter installed when I got my soul. I start the car with the remote start, then I push the button again to unlock, the rear hatch will not open unless I open a random door first. I talked to the people who installed it, They said it works how ever Kia designed it. The kia dealer...
  10. Tire Fitment Question

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    Will a 17”x7.5” with a +35 offset wheel work on our cars? I’ve searched the forum, googled, and posted the question on a Facebook page and can’t get a definitive answer. I know the wheel width & diameter is okay, it’s the 35mm offset that is in question. I don’t mind them being almost flush...

    New Member Introductions
    Hi! I'm not yet a Soul owner, but ever since I happened to rent one a few months ago, I basically knew what my next car had to be. I came here to ask a question about a 2014 Exclaim I'm thinking about buying - Everything looked great, but the fuel economy tracker on the dashboard was showing...

    Hi, new owner here of a 2019 black soul +. I'm trying to see if there's an update to the uvo software but whenever I go to the site through links to the updates, it always takes me to the landing/login page.

    Question. 2016 Kia Soul with Navi and backup camera. When you are in reverse does it not beep at you when you get close to something? Some people who own other cars have said you have to be moving at a certain speed to make it beep. Is there something I’m missing or does it just not beep...
  18. Buying new Soul Question: Can you store power seat configurations?

    New Member Introductions
    Will probably buy a new Kia Soul in the next 2-3 weeks. Do any of the models offer driver "seat memory" where you can store the configuration of the driver seat for 2 drivers? I searched the net & didn't see anything about this. Also, from looking at the pictures of the interior I didn't see any...

    Hope do upgrade my wife's 2001 PT Cruiser. Will buy a new Soul Plus before end of year. I'm reviewing the existing inventory of cars & some have the 18" tires & some have the 17" tires.
