    New Member Introductions
    I just joined the forums, but we've had a Kia Soul for a while. My wife bought a Alien Green 2010 new in Oct. 2009. She works at a rock quarry, so this poor thing has been under attack by limestone dust all of its life. She also drives at least 40 miles (up to 75 miles, if they send her to...

    Hi, my husband and I just bought an Alien Orange Kia Soul. We absolutely love it and all the safety features it offers! Freaked us out the first time we realized it cuts off the engine for a short time when you stop! We were so used to clunkers stalling on us that we assumed the worst! I no...

  12. First trip to the dealership

    Soul Problems (Gen 3)
    Dropped my vehicle off with the dealership for some A/C issues yesterday. The blower fluctuates consistently either blowing on high and then low, then high again. Considering we're about to enter the dog days of summer, I figured I'd have it looked at. Also, have noticed that my phone's...

    Finally figured out the correct coolant to use for my 2012+. Figured I'd do a drain and refill, so I got underneath the nose but can't find the drain plug anywhere. Found a diagram online but it's so sketchy it's of no use. Thanks! Incidentally, pet**** is the proper term, but apparently...
