    Hey everybody. I've lurked on these forums for years but this is my first time posting. I have a 2013 Kia Soul + (bought in 2012) that I'm slowly upgrading to the Exclaim level (among other things). These are the upgrades I've done so far: - Replaced tail lights with LED versions. - Added OEM...

    I just bought my 2nd Kia Soul, this one a 2018 SX turbo with the Tech package, which includes the Panoramic roof. I have a 16.5 foot canoe that I need to carry on the roof. Since I have the Panoramic roof, the dealer parts man told me that the "rail mounted" crossbars don't work with my SX (no...

    Hi, I am the new owner of a 2016 Soul ! and live in Northern Nevada. Interested in learning about truck-mounted bike rack options when there is a spoiler in place on the car. Really don't want to add a hitch and don't use a rack often so it seems like a truck mounted version would be best but...

    Does anyone have the ROLA 59789? It says its a direct bolt-on same as the OEM crossbars. Which would you choose? Advantage to either one? They are basically identically priced on Amazon, so not sure which to get....or is there another option beyond the SSD hybrids?

    I have a 2015 Soul! with a panoramic sunroof. It doesn't have rails installed and was told by Kia that it can't. I'm looking to see I feel anyone has had experience with a removeable roof rack system for a 2nd Generation. Any help would be appreciated!
  10. How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    I have a 66" set of Yakima bars and q-towers left over from my last car. Because the bars are so wide, loud, and used so infrequently, I generally keep them at home; I have extra-wide bars because I often move bulky-but-light objects (e.g. scaffolding) on top of the car. As I understand it...

    Hello hows everyone doing? As mentioned in one of my previous posts, I want my Soul to have an "off road rally look." I had 2 Hella 500 lights and an LED bar light installed on my roof rack that I painted Red. I REALLY REALLY hope the pictures upload correctly and the resolution doesnt look like...

    I have a 2012 kia soul and have a killer lead on a $50 roof rack but its off a 2014, Will this possibly work? I'm not worried about width I'm just wondering what might be needed to be altered. I have a full custom motorcycle garage at my disposal with every tool I could need. I've been...

    Howdy, just purchased a 2013 Kia Soul. Thinking I may need extra storage for camping etc. I do not have the top rack installed. Would you recommend adding the hitch with basket or all the top rack equipment for luggage/coolers? Also, I saw a video on how to remove all the top trim to install...

    Hi everyone, This is more of an informational post. I wanted a cargo rack on my Kia Soul, but all the posts I found seemed to say it couldn't be done. In addition, all the rack manufacturers say they don't make one for a Kia with a panoramic moonroof. My suspicion was that they were saying that...

    I taken her vehicle back to the Franklin dealership service department multiple times regarding a "popping" noise coming from the front of the vehicle while turning. Each time, your service department stated they did not hear nor see any problems. As a final attempt, my sister recorded the noise...

    2015 Kia Soul Base. Just bought laast week with 700 miles on it. PROBLEM: Starting at about 35 mph on up the roof rack whistles. Seems like it is only on the passenger side. Any ideas? Don't want to spend time at the dealership if I don't have to. Thanks
  19. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    finally got 3 all the pieces in...another story in itself...foot pack, fit kit, bars. Have had Thule Racks before so didn't expect much of a problem with installing to the top. Going against the "guy" method, after verifying I had all the pieces that were suppose to be in the boxes, reading the...

    Does anyone have experience with the Rola removeable roof rack on their Soul? The reviews are good on Amazon but at least one poster mentions that the mounts distort the door frames a little. Otherwise quality appears to be good and the price reasonable. Thanks in advance.
