  1. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Ive noticed on my Wifes 2011 Kia Soul Sport when weve started it I hear a rattle coming from that bay. It sounds like it happens when the AC Compressor engages. Anyone heard of this? Im assuming its a pulley or a clutch or something rattling. AC still works fine and cold air blows just...
  2. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    When I say rough I mean it was like an earthquake. Went away after about 5 seconds. It was about 65 degrees outside. 28K miles. First time it happened. I have read the other rough idle threads on this forum. Does anyone have any new information? I will be taking it in to the dealer but...
  3. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hey guys! First timer here and just had a what question about my 2014 Soul + GDI. It's got a noise on startup when it's cold but once it warms up(usually 10-15 seconds) it will be completely fine. I've heard this is normal with the GDI but just a little information would be great. Thanks guys!

    Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this. Every once in a while, my navigation head unit (stock) will start with the audio on - when the unit was off at shutdown. Has anybody experienced this on their Soul? Just in case somebody mentions -- no, I didn't simply leave the unit on...

  8. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Anyone else see this problem? Whether the car was using FM radio or MP3s on a USB flash drive the last time it was used, the speakers make a strange ZING POP BUZZ for 1-4 seconds before you can hear the music. Everything sounds fine after that, but it sounds like the speakers are going to blow...

    Since day one, our 2012 has a loud "whine" when the engine first starts up. Lasts about 3-5 seconds. I think its the water pump or the alternator. The sound rises in pitch until it quits. We have a neighbor with a 2012 and I heard the same sound this morning. Anyone having this issue?

  11. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I purchased a 2012 Soul+ with the audio upgrade, Shadow finish. When starting the vehicle cold there is a brief but harsh rattling noise which emanates from under the engine cover. I took the car to the dealership and duplicated the noise for a mechanic. He said the sound was normal and...
