    Soul Problems (Gen 3)
    So...after a few weeks of ownership I have noticed a few strange happenings. 1-The I.S.G. works intermittently. Sometimes when I come to a stop, the car does not shut off, other times it will. The "A" symbol glows yellow not green. When I step on the brake the little light on the dash disable...
  2. Requiring people to post about themselves is a strange policy

    I am not sure why they have us do this, but anyway. I am working on my sisters 2010 Kia Soul. It has burned out 3 clutches in a little over a year. I will be posting more in the forum.

  4. 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 either.....it seems to be directly associated with engine speed. As if a belt...
  5. Strange engine noise on startup

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello all! I just bought a 2010 Kia Soul (!) exclaim and I love everything about it, but when I started up in the morning the engine makes almost a metal on metal sound that goes away once engine is warmed up I attached a YouTube video of the noise can anyone tell me what it is your thoughts...
  6. Strange Sound at Full Lock

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I noticed a strange/unusual sound at full steering lock on our soul last nite. It only happens at full lock left OR right. There is a rubbing or grinding sound when the wheels are turned full left or right. The sound is identical either way and dissipates as the wheel is turned back towards...
  7. Strange problem

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. We have a 2014 Soul. Whenever it is parked at home, there is a low-med whining sound in our house. Kind of like a low siren. Whenever the car is driven away, the sound immediately stops. When the car returns, so does the sound. We've tested...
  8. Strange spots on 2011 screen

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    These spots just spontaneously appeared on my screen. One second they weren't there, then I turned my radio on again and there they were. It's small, but it's bothering me more than you think. Has this happened to anyone else?
  9. Strange thing happened

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I took my wife's car to gas up then to the grocery to pick up medications for myself. When I got in the car to leave the grocery store I put the key in and it would not turn! The light ring around it lit but nothing else. Not thinking much good I took out the key and flipped it over (silly I...
  10. Strange Seat Belt Extension Policy?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    We took two Souls home a couple of weeks ago. My wife decided to try a seat belt extension because the belt was cutting close to her neck. Kia doesnt make one for the cars because they say the belts are long enough and you dont need an extension. I called the main USA corp office to find this...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)

  13. Strange Popping from Speakers upon startup

    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...
  14. Strange Start up Noise

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My Soul is going in for it's first oil change next weekend. Since I have had this vehicle it makes a strange start up squeal in the morning. I have recorded two audio snipits.. one from outside the vehicle and one from inside the cabin. I was wondering if any of the experts here have heard...
  15. Strange advice from a dealer about checking oil level

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I had my Soul serviced prior to a long road trip recently. They changed the oil, rotated tires, etc. When I returned from the trip after about 1,500 miles, I decided to see how dirty the oil looked. It wasn't bad, but I also noticed that the reading on the dipstick was about quarter inch over...
  16. Strange "power down" sound from battery after turning car off?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hey, I'm not sure if this is normal or not. I don't have another Soul to compare. Every time I turn the ignition off and get out, I hear a weird electrical type noise and "click-click" coming from the engine (battery). Is this just normal "power down" or something from the battery type the...
  17. 2012 Soul Strange Front Vibration

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Something weird happened this morning with my Soul. It's 43 deg. outside and I'm on my way to work driving through town at 30 MPH. After I passed the 55 MPH sign, I added the gas and the front end vibrated like I was driving over those cuts they put in the road to wake up sleeping drivers. I...

    This may be a long introduction, so bear with me... Hello to all. I bought my 2011 Soul at the end of last December. I really liked my little Soul. It didn't get the best gas mileage and was a little noisier than I liked, but it was fun to drive. It reminded me of my VW Beetles I drove 35+...
  19. Steering wheel radio controls acting strange

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Hello all. I've searched and have found no clue to what I am about to describe. While playing the stereo, I pushed the mute button and the volume increased, I pushed the fwd skip button and changed modes. The stereo will not turn on from holding the mode button any more. The biggest problem is...
  20. strange rear seat belts

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My parents just got a Soul and the rear seat belts have an odd design. My kids will be riding in the vehicle daily and the one in the car seat isn't an issue, but the teen in the seat belt is. The female end with the buckle stalk comes out from the seat bight, but the male end with the belt...
