  10. Strange Engine Speed Vibrations

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Been going on for a few months now and seems to be getting worse. Every time I make a left turn in my 2010 Soul+ with auto and 2.0L regardless of speed, I get a loud vibration noise. It’s not just a random vibration seems to be directly associated with engine speed. As if a belt...
  11. New Soul Searcher: How are the 2010 122 hp with 5 speed models?

    New Member Introductions
    Hi, I recently went out looking for a new car. Seeking a small 4 door 2017 on clearance. Went by Kia to look at some base LX Rios and then got turned onto a base 1.6 Liter Soul. I liked it well. It felt less peppy than the Rio with the same 6 speed and 1.6 liter, but it was adequate. I loved...

    Hello. I have a 2015 Kia soul and when u turn the fan control to 1,2, or 3 the fan feels really week. only when it's at 4 is it good enough. If I put it on 1 it's so weak it's pathetic. I feel as though the speeds of the fan should be 4 as 3, and so on. what's annoying is this is a new car...

  15. 7 speed DCT Auto gearbox

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Anyone got 1 yet? Any feedback? I drove 1 yesterday, the only difference I can see is in the very low gears it seems a bit snappier & at 80mph the revs drop from 2500 to 2200 so should be slightly more economical on a long run. Typical of Kia UK, there is is no up to date spec sheet on their...

    Hi - I tried searching the forum but didn't see anything re the option on Sound / Advanced tab re Speed Dependent Volume Control.
