    Love my 2016 Soul. The only thing I find uncomfortable with is that it feels like I have nowhere to rest my left arm while driving. The door armrest is to low to be comfortable Maybe because I am tall. Does anybody else notice this and is there any way I can add a fold down armrest on the...

    I got a cool aluminium dead petal cover in the mail the other day for my 2016 soul. I'll have matching metal pedals for all three pedals. Dead, Gas and break. My only issue i'm seeing is the rubber pedal that's glued to the felt is really tough to get off. i was able to peel the edges...

    When I started looking for a vehicle to replace our 2008 Trailblazer, one of the few options I found that could make any noticeable improvement on fuel economy and still come even close to the Trailblazer’s towing ability was a Toyota Rav4 with a V6 engine. I located a rare one that wasn’t...
  6. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    Just for fun, I made myself an arm rest for the driver door. The OEM arm rest is not very comfortable and too low for Tall guys. So first I made a paper template of what I wanted. Then I transferred that to some thin wood. Then I glued on some carpet padding. Then I stapled on some...

    I've gone back several pages and I don't see anyone talking about a Center Console and arm rest for the 2013 Soul. Has anyone purchased one? If so, how did it mount to the car? I saw one in the Accessories catalog, but I didn't like the price. A bit pricey for a piece of plastic. TM :cool:

    Looking to buy the US base model, but it has no center arm rest. Does anybody know if a factory arm rest part made for a '+' model can be installed? And if not a factory part, does anybody know of an OEM after-market part? Thanks in advance.

    We just bought a 2011 Base Soul, the one thing we miss is a center arm rest, Kia Accessories has one, has anyone installed it themselves? How simple is it? I am thinking it somehow screws into the console base our car already has? Thanks in advance Wildcat

    For most of you I'm sure this is not a deal breaker, but I am kind of weird about stuff like that. Do you just get use to not having one? Is it a factory option at all? Aftermarket?
  16. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Just wanted to see if someone can ease my mind on 2 different questions.... A) For all non-burner models sold in Canada I believe the Roof rails are standard. Does anyone know if you can opt not to have them installed? Or is it possible to remove them (prob not guessing they are drilled into...
