    Bought a used, 2014 Soul! to tow behind a motor home. I wanted a solar yellow soul with the Exclaim wheels. DH wanted the panoramic roof. Apparently, KIA no longer makes yellow Souls. Once I found our Soul! online, my DH flew approx. 1500 miles to drive her back home. :onthego: Turns out...

    Hello, First Post. We have a 2016 Kia Soul with the Manual Transmission and use it as our "TOAD" Vehicle. There is a Kia Technical Service Bulletin Number 018 (Rev 3, 01/14/2015) that provides the requirements for towing Kia vehicles with all four wheels on the ground. It is a very light...

    Hello I’m Dennis from New Jersey and I built a custom square drop front trailer. Took it out for a maiden voyage Just to see how it feels. It wasn’t bad at all. I will post the weight as soon as I can get it to the scale. I love my Soul, it’s a great little car. I just wasn’t happy to realize...

    I purchased my 2014 Soul (Her name is Muddy Waters) last year from Enterprize. Wow, got a great deal. Drove my cousin's Sorento till it died, tried to replace the motor when it died, but I bought a used one that died, just after it's warranty period expired. Still made it worth trying Kia...

    Hey - so just got a used 2013 Soul+ and was hunting around for spots to hook a kayak line to the front, and was really surprised to not see any hook spots underneath (I did see the one in back). There's a lot of threads about the took hooks, but nothing about leaving it in there permanently -...

    Just got a 2014 soul + with 2.0 and automatic. It has the push button start. I need to know what to do when towing it on my tow dolly. when I towed my vw beetle, I just left it in park and turned the key to accessory to allow the steering to unlock so the wheels are able to turn a bit when...

    So on friday the 13th my wife calls me up and says that the car died on the fwy. First thinking its just a joke because it was the 13th and less then 2k miles since it had to get towed in for the shifter cable snapping. Well I get a call the next day from the dealer saying the tech has been on...

    Hi all, Wondering if anyone has one of the older SSD license plate movers. It's a bracket that went into the front tow hook mounting spot to move the front plate over to the side. SSD no longer sells them. Thanks!

    Hey guys, I wanted to judge interest in a new item I am working with a friend to develop. I hate how the stock tow hook made from tack welded pieces of stamped steel looks, and wanted a new one made from billet that would look A LOT nicer. We decided to make one since one isn't available...
