  1. 2013 Soul 100k Mile Report

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    OK, I'm doing this again. If you've been here for awhile, you may remember my "2013 Soul 50k Mile Report" from about 2 years ago. This is the 100k mile follow up report; I'll be breaking 100k in a few weeks and figured since I remember this now, might as well do it now. This thread is really...
  2. 2013 Soul 50k mile report

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Since I'm just breaking 50k miles I thought I'd make a thread so that future searchers, "how does this car hold up", "would you buy it again", etc, would have something to look at. Overall impressions: this has been a damn good car for what I paid to buy it and maintain it. Model: 2013 Base 6...

  5. Vin report?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Anyone know where I can get one free online? I had such a poor experience from my dealer and it appears as tho I will have to show up at the birthday party to tell the owner about it (how they can't know about the recall I'll never know!) see what they think/can do In the mean time I am trying...
  6. The Soul Fall Foliage Report 2011

    As we build up to the Fall Cruise I thought I would show people what we've experienced during this last week in our travels around Ontario. We were up in the Muskokas, east of Bracebridge for a few days and toured around a lot. Put another 945 Kms on the Soul! Generally, we can report that this...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Took my sd out of hibernation on a 2K road trip. 4 states, much of it hilly 6+% grades, almost all 2 lane, cruising well above speed limits, 70-80 mph. a few 100 mph bursts where, when you get a chance you have to pass in a hurry.

  9. Canadian SX Report - My Review

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Well it finally arrived 2 SOUL SX's, both in black. One 5 speed, and one Auto. The first thing I noticed was that the stripe on the SX here differs from those pictured in other areas, it may just be me but it looks better. Also the gunmetal on the black is probably the best stripe we will get...
