  1. Lit up my ride!

    How To / DIY (Gen 3)
    Went for a more polished look with this car. Instead of having a spaghetti system of 12v sockets and wires hanging over the console and in the cargo area. I took my time (better part of a day) and ran the wiring along the A pillars and behind the overhead console and mostly out of sight...
  2. Re soul purported rough ride

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    There have been a number of threads here complaining of the rough ride in the soul, and I have replied that while the ride is not luxo barge smooth it is not unreasonably rough. Well yesterday I had occasion to ride in my friend's 2016 Honda Civic touring the top model in the range, now that...
  3. Tire size and a smoother ride???

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Will changing my wheel size from an 18 inch wheel to a 16 or 15 inch wheel (hence bigger tires, more rubber) improve the rough and bumpy ride I experiance today? Will it affect anything in a negative way like tight turns?
  4. Hard ride

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Got to take a small trip sitting in the back seat of the Soul,found the ride very hard when going over small bumps almost as if there were no shocks on the car,is this normal for the Soul?
  5. Pics of your ride you didn't take

    Owners Photo Gallery
    Fun / challenge thread idea stolen from an RV forum I'm a member of... The idea is to find and post a photo of your car that you didn't take. You can source it from anywhere. For example, here's my former car caught on street view. Less than a month into my Soul ownership, I got a text of...
  6. New member with a new ride

    New Member Introductions
    Just purchased a new Kia 2017 Soul, base model, manual transmission (harder to find than I thought!). Really like the new ride. Selected it over a Honda Fit because: 1) I felt like I was waiting to be a bumper sticker when I drove the Fit; not so in the Soul 2) I kept banging my head on the...

  9. New Ride

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I just traded in my 2011 Base M5 on a new 2015 Base auto and I love it. I liked my 1st gen, but they made the 2nd gen much more comfortable and more drivable and of course I am loving the auto. That was my main reason for upgrading, just tired of shifting everyday to and from work. It will be...

  12. 2011 noisy ride? Not for me ...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    So I picked up my 2011 Kia Soul Exclaim this month. It has 25k miles on it and is Kia CPO. After reading some of the test drive reports, I'm baffled as to why the 2011 got a lot of comments from the reviewers saying that it's a noisy and bumpy ride. Now given that the car has 18" rims on it...

  15. My new ride is in the garage, finally

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I picked up my Inferno Exclaim this afternoon and found the ride back home to be very pleasant. I was concerned with the ride of the 18s so I had the dealer switch out the 18s for 17s. Ride was better and quieter than the 18s. Was on the road about an hour doing the speed limit and noticed that...
  16. My new ride

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    C:\Users\Panayoti\Google Drive\Photo01111254.jpg Just put down deposit on this Inferno late last night. They were closing but they eagerly accepted my check. Deal to be finalized at the beginning of next week. Lots of details need to be worked out. They were indeed willing to swap tires as was...
  17. Wheel sizes and ride quality

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I assume the 18 inchers ride a little rougher than the 17 inchers and they both ride a little rougher than the 16 inchers -- assuming the tires are of similar quality. Unless the speedo and odo get recalibrated, the bigger wheels mean lower profile tires means less cushy ride. Right?
  18. 16 to 15 for a better ride?

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Looking at wheels for my wifes soul, want to go to a 15" wheel. Its primarily a work vehicle 50 miles a day. We have (will have tomorrow) snow tires mounted on the 16 inch wheels and i want another set of wheels and tires to switch out for the summer. here is what im looking at. No TPMS with...

    New Member Introductions
    :D Hey guys, I just wanted to say hi, and announce our joyous new ownership of a 2013 KIA Soul 4u! :confused: I have one silly question to ask of everyone who cares to answer, and that is this: what does everyone refer to their Soul as? I can't quite call it a car, and it's definitely not a...
