    https://www.kiasoulforums.com/threads/kia-service-ripoff.112895/post-1252037 I happened upon the post above while searching for oil change recommendations. Anyone have information on the “turbo oil pipe gasket recall” mentioned. I’ve searched and have found nothing. Thanks!

    They did not find anything wrong with my CAT. They updated the computer and sent me on my way. Immediately my MPG went down by %25 (thats 1/4) i refilled after the recall. I brought it back a week later and they reset the computer and I had an oil and filter change done. It did not fix anything...

    Noticed that when on interstate straight stretches with virtually no input to steering wheel, that when I do move it slightly, there is just the slightest perception of resistance/drag. I never noticed it on secondary roads where the steering is in more constant movement. Expect if I take it...

    Sorry if there is already a thread on this. Searched but did not find. I have a 2015 1.6 manual trans, and just got a letter in the mail from the mother ship concerning a possible catalytic converter overheating issue. Let's discuss.

    Anyone get this in the mail? "Kia is extending the New Vehicle Limited Warranty Coverage, to all owners of the 2012-2013 MY Soul, for the MDPS from 5 years/60k miles to 10 years/unlimited miles, starting from date of first service. The MDPS unit may experience noise when turning the steering...

    I am not sure what they did but did something and said my Soul checked out ok. I think ECU upgrade. There was a large number of Souls being checked besides mine. Someone had the problem and they furnished him a vehicle as they order new parts and finish the work.

    Hi there! I purchased a very nice silver 2014 model with dealer maintenance records, although the last owner stretched the oil changes out a bit. Not sure if he used a full synthetic or not. The car spent its nights in Kansas City (with this mileage, its days were on the road!), and I am...

    Got a couple of recall notices for both of my Souls today (2012 & 2013). Says that they need to program something into the computer and check for damage, and maybe replace the catalytic converter and possibly the engine. Anyone done these recalls yet? Anyone get a new engine? I'm a little...

    I started to change the rear windshield wiper because it needed it, but also because Pep Boys has a good sale on them. 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...

    Not only Souls, but Optimas and Sorentos, I believe, along with various models from Hyundai. Has this happened to you or anyone you know? Any internal communication from Kia or Hyundai on the allegations with possible recall...

    Howdy y'all! Went and had the first oil change at the dealer yesterday. They apparently routinely check the VIN for any recalls. The Service dude said there was a new one for a gasket on the oil line to the turbo. I checked my VIN on https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls and it turns up nothing yet...

    Apparently, 2014-2016 Souls were not fixed properly the first time. Let's hope it won't become third time's a charm. Kia recalls Souls in US for second time - ABC News

    Does anyone have any pics of the rubber stoppers that they used for the gas pedal recall? The reason I'm asking is because I installed the Kia OEM Sport Pedals accessory. The stock pedal I swapped out didn't look like it had rubber stoppers - where were they installed and what do they look like...
