  1. 2013 1.6L auto creaking noise during slow turns

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hey everyone, in the past couple months I've been hearing a creaking noise that only occurs when I make a low speed left turn. e.g. I'm approaching a U-turn in a left lane, I slow down to a stop, and begin turning the wheel counter clockwise. As I turn the wheel, I hear a creaking noise from...

  4. Tire Slow Leak

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have a 2013 Kia Soul Plus at 18,000. I bought it brand new in 2013. I mainly commute to work and school via streets. I've noticed that I have a slow leak in the front passenger tire. I do rotate my tires. I top off the air in all the tires and two or three weeks later I'm down 20psi. I've...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    New to the forums, I have a question my friend has a 2013 Kia Soul. She says it seems like when she accelerates it doesn't have that umph and it's not properly switching gears? What might be the problem, have anyone experienced this? Thanks in advanced.
  7. Very Slow Take Off

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi, My Kia Soul is 2 years old and recently when I take off, my soul drags and takes a while to idle to a decent speed I might add that it always dragged going over incline and small hills but lately it happens when I take off. Someone said that it could be that I need new spark plugs but I...
  8. Brake issue? or normal slow down/de-acceleration?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hey all, I just recently became a Soul (Base/Automatic) owner and have noticed a significant "slow down" after I take my foot off of the gas pedal. On other cars I've owned and my wife's current car, if we take our foot off the gas pedal the cars seem to "coast" evenly without any quick slow...
  9. Possible slow leak at 600 miles

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Hello all, My left front, over the course of about 4 days (when indicator light first came on) lost enough PSI to end up at 18psi prior to my re-inflating. No obvious tire damage or pothole encounters. Any advice on whether the bumper to bumper will cover this type of issue? Thanks!
  10. Very Slow Warm Up Time

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I live in upstate New York so it can be very cold around here. The concern I have is that it takes almost forever for my new 2012 Soul to warm up during driving. I have a 10 mile commute one way to work and just like this morning with temps in the lower 20's the car took 7 miles of it to reach...
  11. Brakes failing in slow moving traffic

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My daughter was driving her 2010 Soul in slow moving traffic with light snow. She pressed the brake pedal and had to veer to the right to miss the car in front of her--there seemed to be minimal braking. She was able to fully stop. When she started to move again, the traction light came on and...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I don't know if it's only me BUT, these forums have been extremely slow loading up these last couple days. I get a loading error 50 % of the time since work and even at home. I try different sites and they all work as normal. Sometime everything is just dandy but other times, I...

  14. Slow phonebook download? Bad sound Quality? Look here

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1) Find your phone carrier on the left, then find your phone in the list. It should tell you what bluetooth version it is down towards the bottom. Ver 1.1 = Crap. Slow. Not worth it. Ver 1.2 = "up to 721 kbit/s" Ver 2.0 (without EDR) = "up to 721...
