    I had a 2012 Kia Soul Plus with a 2.0 engine and auto. At 95K miles things were just right to trade her in. Got a 2019 Kia Soul Base with 1.6 L engine (You do notice the difference both in power and fuel economy). First Soul was Molten Red. This one is Clear White. Big difference in how smooth...

    We really need an off topic thread. So what on your mind???
  3. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Some background - I recently purchased a '19 Base MT and drove away knowing I did not get a luxury car. So I am not complaining about what I got, but I am looking to see what can and can't be done and so forth. I am fairly handy, don't mind almost anything DIY and have a decent background in car...

    Hello All, I am the owner of a 2016 Kia Soul +. Unlike most people here, I didn't choose the "Soul Life" it choose me. Back in June of 2016 I was driving a hand-me-down 2002 Mazda Tribute LX that had a habit of killing alternators. When it killed it's 7th one in 5 years my parents decided to...

    We just bought a 2017 Base which does not have fog lights. I'm an Old Soul (59) and have owned cars with and without fog lights. Even when the car had them I never used them. I still think of fog lights as the yellow units on imported sports car. Are fog lights essential, useless, or somewhere...

    After reading so many complaints about poor service at Kia dealers, I'm just tickled silly that I get such GOOD service from Citrus Kia, Crystal River, FL. Two days ago, I got a brand new Key Fob, from my Kia dealer, FREE, under warranty. Today I called the same service writer that took such...

    UPDATE post #9 Some may remember my past thread about the Soul I owned, and passed along to my significant other. http://www.kiasoulforums.com/145-soul-problems/80962-soul-attacks-again-cautionary-tale.html Well, the soul has attacked again. I'm going to try and list the problems as best I...

    Has anyone had any experience is using one of the Performance/Fuel Economy chips that plug into the OBD2 diagnostic port. Just curious is they actually work and if the are actually capable of increasing fuel milage since the Souls comes already with ECO feature in them which I assume is...

    To say you're new if you're posting in the intro section? Anyways first time Kia owner, just purchased a new 2015 base manual for gas savings (and amazing warranty) over my fleet of Jeeps. Already scoped out a center console armrest and DIY cruise control add on from this forum, should be a...

    Hi - we bought two Souls over the holidays. My wife has a "less-intimidating" base model, mine is the + with Nav/Sound. I read somewhere where with this combination you get some leather trim. I think the shifter has leather, the steering wheel has 'leather' and I'm wondering about the curved...
  14. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Just wondering. Do any of these really work or are they just gimmicks to get your money. I've read about the gimmicky resistors for some of the imports but have yet to hear anything good. So I'm wondering about a reflash or a OBDll type chip, has anybody tried either. I'm looking for a little...

    I had to get a car as my Rio was dying and I wanted something like an SUV but not so big and expensive. I ended up getting a silver and black 2010 Kia Soul+ 2.0L automatic. It came with the 8 speaker light up sound system, fog lights, 16" tires and sunroof. I am VERY happy with it and think I...
  16. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I really, really need someone's help with this. This week I once again had to have my Soul (2014 Exclaim) jump-started. I then drove it to the dealer and they checked the battery, connections, alternator, and a test to see how much juice the battery draws when the car is just sitting. They...

    Hey guys. Still shopping :/ Quick question. The dealer is telling me the 2014s and 2015s are identical. Is that actually true? I know sometimes manufacturers make little improvements and refinements across years within a generation, even though the cars look the same on the outside...

    Found this car not too far from me. I'm thinking the asking price isn't too bad and of course I would offer less. I've found that Souls at non-Kia dealerships often are marked lower. So...what do you think about the price and ...what model am I really looking at? They have it listed as an...

    Folks, the horn of my Kia Soul 2010 is not working properly. Sometime it works, sometime it doesn't... This intermittent problem is getting me crazy... Does anyone know how to solve this? I'm totally open to replace the horn, the question is: will that solve this intermittent problem??? IF...

    A month after purchase of my new Exclaim, the ignition key wouldn't pop out of the fob when I pressed the button. I tried the usual fixes, all for naught. I put that key back in my car junk drawer and grabbed the spare. Worked like a charm for about a month and now it does just the opposite...
