    I was wondering why the manual recommends against using synthetic oil (which needs to be changed far less) for the Kia Soul Turbo. Will it harm the engine? It doesn't really say why not to use it. Appreciate any advice/information you can offer on this.

    Just did the 4th oil change on my wife's Soul, and this time went with Mobil 1 Synthetic. Had been using Valvoline Premium Conventional. First time ever using synthetic. Better late than never. I've been following the "Severe conditions" schedule, pretty much, simply because she mostly drives...

    Finally put 7,500 on the Soul. Dropped it off at the dealer for the first 7,500 mile service. Picked it up and realized they only did oil change. Tech said that the other things were not needed yet. Also surprised that the OEM oil is a blend and not full synthetic yet they advise that it lasts...

    Hello everyone! I have a 2011 Soul + with the 2.0 liter engine and 4 speed automatic; right now it's around the 47K mile mark. I did a pretty extensive search and have found very little on this topic. I do understand Kia has a special Kia transmission fluid that is recommended for the...

    Hey everyone, I am waiting on the arrival of a 2016 Soul SX Luxury model but have one outstanding question which no one has been able to 100% answer for me. Is the "leather" interior genuine leather, or is it synthetic? My Kia rep knows this question could be a deal breaker for me and stated...

    I have a 2014 Kia Soul Exclaim With the 2.0 Liter Engine. Each dealership that I visit tells me a different story on which oil they use I.E Semi Synthetic or conventional. The dealership told me that I could not go from one to another. My question is can I switch to either or without any...

    So I am traveling with my soul. I decided to get the oil changed while I'm in San Antonio. There are four dealers here. I called all of them for pricing. All of them quoted me for regular Dino oil. When asked about a synthetic option they all say they did not recommend it. The change intervals...

    I put a coat of Meguiars Ultimate Synthetic Paste Wax on my Soulie about a week ago and now I'm a believer! I have always used traditional types of wax, but finally gave in to the suggestions I read about on this forum. I must say I'm pleasantly surprised (other than the increased white haze...

    My first oil change, coming up. Not sure which synthetic I want to use. I have used Mobile 1 in my other cars in the past. I live in Texas, so not much "winter" weather. Would like to hear from people using Royal Purple, Amsoil. Thanks

    I was at my local crappy tire and picked up a couple of 4.4L jugs of Motomaster 100% synthetic 5w-20, yet on the receipt is said Mobil 1 Syn, Could it be? If so for $20 the price is right.

    Making the SWITCH to Synthetic Oil I'm a huge fan of synthetic oils and run 100% synthetic in my Dodge Cummins diesel. However, Cummins was specific in their manual about when it's permissible to make the switch to synthetic. Since KIA does not offer the same info, for those interested, I...

    Ok so maybe it is early to ask this but, are any of you going to use Mobil one in you Souls? I read the owners manual and it says the car only Uses 3.5 quarts of Oil? If this is true I would think you would want synthetic but the dealer says No biggie? Also evry five thousand miles for oil...
