  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I've had Haynes shop manuals for other cars and motorcycles in the past, but they don't appear to have one available for the Soul. Are there any other similar options out there for the 2nd gen Soul? FWIW I'm not a mechanic, and highly unlikely to do much / any actual work on the car myself...

    I am not sure where in the forum this post should go. Anyone have a preference in a decent shop vac to vacuum out the soul? Thanks

    Good morning. I should have asked this earlier. I am getting the car waxed in 3 hours at a detail shop. If they want to use some sort of machine and not hand wax, should I tell them I want a hand wax (even if it costs more)? Could a machine create swirls like a non-brushless car wash could...

    Hi I'ma new Soul owner and also new to this forum. I recently purchased a Soul shop manual on a disc from a Canadian source and found that that, while being quite extensive in its coverage, it had no index! The manual was reasonably priced and certainly seemed to be a Kia publication but...

    New Owner. I am looking for a source for a 2015 2.0 shop manual. I guess all we get is a DVD style, no book type? Thanks Chino

    You may remember my post a few weeks back about my neighbor hitting my soul. Got it back today after 5 days in the shop. Insurance paid out a total of $1865. New Bumper cover, upper and center plastic moldings, new bumper support bar and some sheet metal work. Good as new!

    Anyone with experience on a good shop manual for the Soul? Does such a beast even exist? While cruising eBay I saw some guy selling a manual for $10 or so, which seems low considering all the stuff that should go into it (I spent many times that for a Bentley manual for my VW and it's been...

    For anyone with a Menards near by, I just got a little 1 gallon Stanley shop vac for $14.99. I think the sale is only for a couple of days, and while supplies last. The Menards I went to, about 20 of them at the display I bought from. I don't know if they had more elsewhere. Anyway, ideal for...

    Hello everyone, I'm posting this thread because I couldn't find on the forums anything about the coating on the Ignition Edition 18in rims. I needed some body work done on my car and the guys at the shop made an amateur move and apparently didn't wrap my rims in paper or plastics or...
