  5. Closed my hood normally and put a small dent in it!

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I knew my new 2015 Soul was made from light weight materials, but I closed the hood and pushed down on it to make sure it was secure, as I have done to my cars for the last 35 years, and it got a small dent right at the crease!!! I have 1000 miles on it and now I have a dent! Is there anything...
  6. Small Clear-ish plastic circle at the far middle front of my dashboard 2015 Base Man?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Right smack in the middle of my dashboard, in front of the "ghost speaker" circle thingy, there is a small clearish plastic half-circle embedded into my dashboard. It's very close to the glass. Is that a wiper sensor for cars with that feature? Or an alarm hub for cars that come with one?

  12. 2013 Kia Soul Base Plus - can't see odometer because of orange on black; too small

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I like my 2013 Kia Soul, but the odometer area has print that is orange on a black background. It is almost impossible to see this. Strangely, the other parts of the instrument cluster are bright green. Why Kia did this amazes me. Is there a way to have the deal replace the black background...
  13. Adding a small trailer hitch to 2010 Kia Soul Exclaim?

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    I'm sure this has been addressed before on this area but would it be a bad idea to add a trailer hitch to the 2010 Kia Soul Exclaim? I have to assume it wasn't built in for a reason. I'm not necessarily interested in moving landscaping boulders across the city with it but we often go camping and...

  18. Added a small trans cooler

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    I've never been a fan of radiator tank only cooling for trans fluid-even vehicles that don't tow can benefit from the much more stable temperatures from additional cooling provided by a transmission fluid cooler. I purchase a small Derale tube/fin type framraile style trans cooler from Amazon...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I have a 2010 Soul +, and there is a small storage area that is above the radio. I have always had a really hard time opening it and was wondering if there is a trick to it. There is a small "knob" that you are supposed to push to the right in order to open the door to the compartment. I...
