  1. 2016 Soul! Paint Scratches

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I've had my Black Soul ! just a bit over 3 months so far and I've noticed a weird looking brunt paint effect on the hood of my car when washing it. I always hand wash my cars. Never if I can help it, take them through a machine and this car has never been through a car wash machine. I thought it...
  2. Paint scratches VERY easily

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Just posting this to see if anybody has had a similar experience. I really enjoy taking care of my cars' paint. I've had cars that look better after years in my care than they did when they were purchased. Over the years, I've tried just about every potion or technique out there to maintain...

  7. Stink Town! I got paint scratches on my brand new Soul!

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    The good news is, my Soul performed better than I expected in our disgusting, slushy snow here in Chicago. The bad news: coming back into my garage I was taking it easy, rocking it in to get over a wheel rut / hump that had formed in my alley, perpendicular to the entrance to my garage. At the...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Well, end of summer and the road crews around here are in a mad panic to get the streets done before the horror of Winter arrives. With it comes tar balls, boulders and pot holes the size of Volkswagens. Some of the streets have been "shaved" of their top layers and dodging the remaining...
