  1. Any thoughts on the difference in fog lights?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    I'm looking at the new 2020 and there's significant difference in the placement of the fog lights. It can be snowy in my area and the fog lights on my '17 Soul have been great. Those are low and on the outer edges. For 2020, it looks like the halogen lights are low but more to the center...
  2. Thoughts on extending bumper to bumper?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hi, we bought our 2017 plus recently, certified pre-owned with 6,200 miles, so we have the 5 year bumper to bumper and the 10 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty, plus 10 year roadside assistance and rental coverage. They offered to sell us an extension of bumper to bumper to the full 10...
  3. Thoughts about new electronic safety nannies

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    (I posted this over on the Sorento forum, in case it looks familiar. LOL) As owner of a 2013 Soul with 77K miles and a 2014 Sorento with 41K miles, I was planning to keep both for at least another 5 years. Love 'em both! However, I'm seeing more and more cars coming with automated safety...
  4. Just looking for your thoughts.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Bought a used 2016 Soul from dealer 2 weeks ago, did not ask if ever was in a accident, I guess I did not do such a great job checking it out, when got home noticed back bumper had a dent in it, called dealer and salesman told me he didn't notice it, well I didn't either at first, I let that...
  5. Thoughts on an Older Kia Sedona?

    Off Topic Lounge
    Hi all, I just bought my first Soul last week, and in the process of looking I ran across a used 2006 Kia Sedona with 93,700 miles. That's actually pretty low for a used, 10-year old minivan, and the asking price is $6,000; looks like I could maybe get it down to $5,300-5,500 or so. I'm...

  7. SSD 1.6L intake thoughts?

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Hello folks, just picked up a 1.6l base manual. I've seen some dyno results on the 2.0 but nothing for 1.6. Besides dyno, has anyone noticed any drivability differences with the intake on the 1.6? MPG difference? Might purchase in combination with fog light cut out to route colder air into...
  8. Your Thoughts

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    hey all. My wife and I both have 2014 Souls. Marvin the Martian and Green Bean. We have the opportunity to trade then for 2015's with UVO for 0% interest and 7000 dollars off with no down. Even if the debt the the same it would be better with 0%. So we are thinking about it. I've never...
  9. ready to buy 2015+ but having second thoughts

    New Member Introductions
    Hey guys, I've been looking at a 2015 Kia Soul+ for a while now but then saw this video review from Redline Reviews that has me a little worried. In the review, the reviewer (Sofyan Bey Editor in Chief) states that with the cruise set at 65mph the car constantly wants to send the engine up to...

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    So, I own a 2014 Titanium + 'primo' package. So, it has the black front and rear bumpers; sunroof; and spoiler (color-coded Titanium). The interior is gray/black leather with yellow stitching. Anyway, I was looking at possible mods and came across these two items and was looking for feedback...

  13. What's you thoughts on the style of this vehicle?

    Off Topic Lounge
    This is a Infinity QX80 and for some reason, to me the front end looks all wrong - just can't get past it, in fact the whole vehicle just doesn't look right - as my wife says "it looks like pimp mobile" :sneakiness: - like they have stuck every aftermarket item on it to :think Any thoughts...
  14. Any thoughts before I take action?

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    I want my car to look cool for my first car. Sooooo I know this place that can print any custom vinyl for me cheap. So I cooked up a photo and photoshop a design my friend made for me. So i was wondering If this is too much stuff going on. Or should i go for it. My parents said its too much but...
  15. OK checked out a 2014 Soul today - random thoughts

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    OK, ran by my Kia dealer to get my fuel rebate and some oil filters while I was there - a side note, the filters apparently *do not* come with the washers. You have to pay for them additional, and they are taped to the top of the box. So if anyone is getting them included, their dealer must be...
  16. Road noise on stock tires...any thoughts on changing out stock tires?

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    *Let me preface this by stating that I'm mechanically challenged as it were and am completely ignorant when it comes to anything to do with a vehicle.* I have a 2010 Kia Soul Exclaim (!) and after 70,000 miles, it's time to replace them. From the first day I test drove it, the road noise was in...

    Hello: First of all, let me apologize for misspellings, etc right off the bat. I had brain surgery a month ago and the eyes are still not focusing correctly all the time. Before you ask, No, I am NOT driving...lol. Now, I am looking at a used Soul or program car Soul to buy in 2013. A...
  18. Need opinions thoughts and comparisons on window tint, is mine messed up?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Ok, so I got my windows tinted by a local guy who has a web site, and business cards and the whole deal. Only one positive Yelp review but that was enough for me to take the plunge cause he did it while I was at work. The cost was $180 and I even tipped him $20. I had all four windows the mini...

    I've began installing my Pioneer 80PRS today, and have a few thoughts I thought might come in handy for some other members if they decide to do this as well. I'll be updating the thread so anyone who might want to change their HU might benefit, and I wanted to see how well the steerimg wheel...
  20. First long road trip - a few thoughts....

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    We took our Soul on a 1000-ish mile road trip last week, and I thought I'd jot down some thoughts about the way the car performed while it's still fresh: Pros: - Pleasingly subdued engine and wind noise - the car is surprisingly quiet on the highway for the type of car it is. Some tire/road...
