    Hi, My wife and I traded in a 2011 Sportage LX AWD in May for a Soul Plus 2018. We only took the Sportage in for an oil change :blue: On the whole, we like the smaller vehicle as my wife has trouble getting into the higher car, and after seven years, the Grand-Babies are Babies no more, so we...

  5. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2) What do you think you all think? 35 mm offset any problem? I've some people say 38 mm is okay so would 3 mm be any more different?

    Been thinking about picking up one of these for Grandma and wondering if any of you own both a Soul and Sportage, and how they compare?

    I've taken my Sportage in twice. They adjusted the shift points. I'm having continued shifting issues. Hard shift, racing shift. Intermittent both shifting up and down. The last time I took it in they said no issues. Frustrated!! Is it a transmission problem?

    We have a new 2014 base and I have the chance to get 17" premium wheels from a 2012 Sportage. Looks like 215 55 17's will fit on these wheels and be equal to the diameter of the 235 45 18's that come on the ! Is the offset different on these Sportage wheels? Bolt pattern is the same. Thanks for...

    Ive seen a few upgrades online for a Sportage 1.6 GDi and im wondering if this is the same 1.6 GDi I have in my 2012 base. Can anybody tell me if they are in fact the same engine?

    I'm a proud new owner of a Sportage SX #3. I've been wokring with the UVO system and really like it. Besides my iPhone streaming (works great) one thing I think I'm going to do is use a very small USB stick (SanDisk mini) and store a bunch of MP3s on it. I have my database of...

    I have a Kia Sportage manual transmission. It seems the stick freezes in cold weather and I can't seem to budge it. I have had other manual transmissions, but never experienced this problem. Is this indicative of the Kia? Has anyone else had a problem like this? And, is there anything I can...

    As soon as it's paid off, I plan on trading my Soul in for a Sportage. I only have roughly 3.5k to pay off. Should take me no longer than 2 years to pay it off. I should be done with the payments in 2013. The sticker price of my Soul was like 16,500. The drive off price was roughly 18,500...

    Anybody know of a Sportage Forum? I've found a couple, but they don't appear to be very current and/or focused on the US market.
  15. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1) by now, everyone knows that the 2012 Soul will be getting 2 new power plants. The 1st is the new 1.6 GDI that will be shared in the new Rio, Accent, Veloster and the Soul. Which makes sense that this motor will be spread across the compact product line. Now where I'm confused is the...

    This week, I saw photos of the new 2011 KIA Sportage. I really like it. It has the same green house shape as the Soul. A little bigger, too. It will have the same engine and 6 speed tranny of the new Hyundai Tucson. We have a new Tucson in our family and that tranny is really nice. I have...
