    The darn keybob's alarm horn. Why did they have to make that button so easy to press? I swear this must be the 4th time the button has been pressed in my pants from my keys pushing into it. I have a Kia Soul 2015 !. I'm not sure if the keyfob has been changed in later models. I think my...

    This is a 2016 Soul+ The manual mentions a disconnect switch in the interior fuse area, and says to put it in the off position if the car is going to be parked for more than a month. It warns that the radio might lose its settings and the key might not work. I plan to park the car for a few...

    Hello, I have a 2014 Kia Soul 2.0L and I am wondering if the base engine from another car uses the same motor??? How would I find this out? I cannot find any 2.0L Soul engines anywhere for the 14.

    I bought my 2012 Kia Soul (red Rock edition) in October of 2017 and have been in love with her since day one. I had a paid for car and didn't want a car payment but found her for pretty cheap considering the low mileage. I brag about her to everyone. We have 3 kids and this car is so perfect for...

    There's about an 8 inch diameter item on the right side wall of the luggage area on my 2016 Soul+ . It looks like an access port but I tried twisting it and I couldn't turn it with reasonable force. I don't want to break anything so let me ask -should it turn? -what direction? -what's behind it...

    Hello from Missouri. Have a '17 plus that I bought with almost no warning. Had a '14 Buick Encore base that I found out I totaled a day or two before a planned drive to a cruise from Galveston. Had hotel rooms booked, found I would have no rental car reimbursement and it was one day to drop...

    Hello fellow S̶o̶u̶l̶ ̶m̶a̶t̶e̶s̶, no wait that sounds weird, I'm new here and have logged about 150 miles on my 2018 Exclaim. I know it doesn't seem like enough to warrant a post, but I figure any one that reads this may have some suggestions and/or some insight on some of my initial...

    Emailed them and since Kia changed something with the front body/bumper design, they won't be making a rally light bar for them. So, it's on to finding other forms of auxiliary lighting...probably gonna start by adding some OEM or aftermarket fog lamps, since our base model didn't come with...
  9. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Thanks for all the comments regarding my starting issue. Car starting reliably again. My 2013 Soul has a quirk that doesn't really bother me, but it may have bothered the previous owner enough to trade it in at such low mileage because this is the only thing I could think of unless he just...

    This past thanksgiving weekend, I took a trip from Northern Alabama to Kansas City. 100% interstate driving. 80% of the time I was probably cruising at 75 mph, the rest of the time was probably between 60 and 70. My 2017 ! is my commuter car and regularly gets approx 28 mpg with 80%...

    I've had my Red/Black Soul Plus 2017 since August - so, I've heard the typical new car gets dented within the first three months. This one came right on schedule. And I am that guy that parks my car far away from stores. I was driving down a two-lane road and a truck to the right of me lost...

    I know a speaker goes here on the Souls with the higher audio system. The Nissan Cube got that fuzzy dashboard toupee. I've seen a few Souls with a stuffed hamster. This seems like a cool place to feature something fun. Ideas?

    This worked on my 2011 Sorento. There is a fuse labeled DRL in that fuse box down by your left knee. On my Sorento I was able to connect the the left side of that fuse to ground and wahla I had factory daylight running lights. After a $2000 estimate from my dealer, a little research on the...

    Every time I see a Gen1, particularly with the smaller wheels, it looks smaller to me than the Gen2. Did the Gen2 grow appreciably in overall outside size? Taller, longer wider or is it just an optical illusion to me or perhaps...it's the 15" base wheels that just brings it lower to the ground?

    You can call me WolfHack. I recently purchased my 2012 Kia Soul from another owner who did some cool stuff with it. I had come across this forum before and decided to make an account to seek advice and show off further custom work I plan to do down the road. Oh yea, and I live in Oklahoma.
