  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I was wondering if anyone had a solution for me. I bought my 2011 Kia Soul 1.6 from carmax a couple months ago. The trunk has the storage cover over it (the one you can lift and put other items under) when I place heavy objects on the cover it dips down in the middle due to lack of support in...

    I hate blanking plates. Recently, I noticed what look like spaces for some kind of rectangular driving/fog light in the front grill (2014/2015 bumper). Has anybody seen OEM lights in this location? I assume some market somewhere in the world must have a light in this location. Just curious...

    Cargo cover I'm a brand new owner, loving my Soul even more than I thought I would. I have but one complaint. Why no cover in the back? I live in NY, and often times want to leave stuff in the car when running about. The window tint hides things a bit, but I'd really like to have a cover...

    Hi All I'm from Melbourne FL. Purchased my Soul last May so I have had a bit of time to get familiar with it. My wife and I enjoy it every day. It replaced my Camry and her Mini so we had to merge our likes and I feel the Soul does that well. She has even given it a name: Trevor. I do have...

    Here goes nothing, I am a hobbyist photographer so my camera's photo's are a bit large. I uploaded them to Flickr instead.

  6. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Hi everyone--forgive me, I've done a lot of searching and found a lot of threads on repurposed camping spaces in the back of the Soul, but I can't seem to get my seats to lay flat enough to do that. I just picked up a 2011. Am I missing something, or is there always a bit of a incline where the...

    You can see it in this picture. It looks like it was meant for cup holders or something.

    Me and my gf planning to do a 4 hour road trip to pick up a front bumper for another car of mine. We are trying to a Kia soul from the rental because my gf wants a kia soul in her near future (6 months from now) as her next car. This is a good opportunity to test out the Soul. I wanted to know...

    I'm an artist looking for a new car, and as happy as I am with my Optima, I need something larger. I am curious as to the length, width and height of the back of the interior with the seats folded down, as well as the width, height and diagonal measurements of the hatchback opening. Thanks!

    The Soul has caught my eye as a good replacement for our late lamented Escort wagon. The other finalist is the Elantra Touring, which has the most cargo of any compact hatch. But I'm confused as to why the + trim sheds 4 cu.ft. of cargo space, going from the base spec of 23.7 cu.ft...
  12. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Hello, I'm a newbie and thinking seriously about looking at the Soul for our next vehicle but was wondering about the cargo space with the back seats down. We would need it to transport a pretty large amp plus a set of electronic drums standing up. Rough measurements are: 46" L X 47" H If...

    not sure if this was answered before, but in the back, where the "floor" of the tailgate can lift up and you can store things, is there anything i can put on top of the "floor" to protect it, like a rubber mat or something harder? wasn't sure if they made something specific or i could pick...

    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...
  15. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Last weekend I was able to fit a 76 inches long and 30 inches wide mirror inside my Soul. I had to take the mirror out of the box to get it to fit. I reclined the passenger front seat as far back as possible. I then lowered the rear seats forward.
  16. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    I have looked over my soul and I am still getting used to it, but I notice the center console is not very efficent. Right behind the ebrake under the arm rest compartment is a dead space and a dummy plate from the back seat. i was curious has anyone messed with this area for additonal storage...

    So whats your opinion of these wheels everyone?
  18. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I knew it was small but I was shocked how bad it truly was. I mean its supposed to be 19+ cubic feet (rear seats up). My Subaru Impreza has only 11 cubic feet and its really isn't that different. After our test drive of the Soul today I got out our largest suitcase we use (I brought just to test...
  19. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I'm wanting to buy a Kia Soul. But I have concerns about the cargo space. I have a lot of equipment, such as suitcases, a full sized digital piano and a guitar. Will I be able to fit it all inside? My piano is 54" long, will that fit in the back of the Soul?
