  1. "Automatic" CPO Status - New Thing, or Dealer Making it Up?

    Kia Soul News
    So I'm looking into buying a used Kia Sorento (in addition to my Soul!) and spoke with a Kia dealer on the phone today. He told me that about a month ago, a mandate came down from Kia that all corporate-owned dealerships "must" sell their eligible used Kias as Certified Pre-Owned (CPO). This...
  2. One Thing That I Can't Stand With The Kia Soul....

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    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...
  3. Are tune-ups and wheel alignments a thing of the past?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    The last time I ever had a car tuned up was my 1989 Pontiac Grand Am. But ever since I've owned Hondas, Suzukis, and now a Kia, I haven't had to have any of those cars go through a tune up or go through a wheel alignment, and went over 100,000 miles one with over 200,000 miles, without either...

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2) What do you think you all think?
  5. What do you thing about some '14 Sportage wheels on a '15 base?

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2) What do you think you all think? 35 mm offset any problem? I've some people say 38 mm is okay so would 3 mm be any more different?
  6. A Cool Thing I just Noticed About My Soul

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    When i push the lock button on my fob the horn sounds. My daughter put her hat in the car and i double pushed the lock button, but no horn. What the!?... The rear door wasn't closed alk the way. I unlocked the door and closed it all the way. The horn sounded this time. Just another cool feature...
  7. Ugliest thing Kia told me lately!

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    My cars were purchased a month and a half maybe (?) ago. One of my contract items was the spare tires and kits. I still dont have them. The Sales mgr cant get them. The General Mgr cant get them. Parts said they are back ordered. Waay back ordered and only one company makes them for Kia. A...

    The wonderful UPS man today just happen to have this for my 2015. Oh yes.. the Canadian version! Will update a pic when installed.
  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. what is the little marble looking thing on the dash by the windshield vents

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    what is the little half circle thing that sits in the middle of the dash, right under the windshield, it looks like a marble was set into the dash. i can't fathom a clue as to what it is or what it does.
  11. Very weird thing just happened!

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Ok, so I have a 2011 Soul Tiger (essentially just a nicer +) and I got in my car today to head to work and when I drove down the road, the doors locked at ~10mph...weird...I get to work, turn the car off and all the doors unlocked. This might just sound like the normal feature of some cars but...

  13. The Best Thing You Have Done To Your Kia Soul

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Anything qualifies. For me, it's the ssd strut tower brace. The handling difference is really noticeable.
  14. 1 thing I have discovered

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    1 thing I have discovered about vents. With the A/C off, left knob on 0 and right knob on MAX or whatever, everytime I turn the key the inside/outside circulation light ( left knob ) is not lit up. So everytime I start the Soul, I have to push that left knob ( lights up ) so it shuts off the...
  15. What's the consensus on the Soul's "AVG MPG" meter? Is this thing accurate?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Title pretty much covers my question. I'm the type of guy who loves data, so since I got my Soul I've been doing the same thing I did with my previous car. Every time I fill up I note the date, trip mileage, and how many gallons I put in. Then I excel it for all kinds of fun data like average...
  16. Cargo Cover Project - All Home Depot Stuff and it Beats that Cloth Thing!

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    OK, first off, really really like this car a lot! does fall short in some aspects, annoyingly so as it didn't have to be that way. In my PTCruiser, there as a cool and handy removable cargo shelf, which worked out great for grocery shopping - stash the squashables up on the shelf...
  17. so does this MPG thing make our 12' souls rare now?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    im going in tomorrow with my soul to register for my 20k miles, since the reimbursement is for the life of the car, does that mean they will be more valuable in the future since it passes on to new owners when you sell it? im like, "hell yeah! after i hit 100,000 miles id have 1/10 the car paid...
  18. This E/T thing....??

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1) I am not "saavy" on car things. On the dash, in the same area as the MPG, Odometer, etc...what is this E/T thing? I can't make heads or tails out of it. Something to do with the gas mileage or something? :confused:
  19. Front plate THING? and 1 inch hole in bumpter

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Love my new Soul - but puzzled by that 'european' size front plate cover thing - What are you folks doing with that ? - Does it come off ? Also just to left of that is a 1 inch hole cut into the painted bumper (white tiger) - with an indent so you can push it in - it rotates in 90 degrees -...
