    I am not sure what they did but did something and said my Soul checked out ok. I think ECU upgrade. There was a large number of Souls being checked besides mine. Someone had the problem and they furnished him a vehicle as they order new parts and finish the work.

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Hello all, I just purchased a 2016 Kia Soul + with backup camera but without UVO. The stereo unit looks identical to the lowest level UVO unit except the upper right button says "DISP" instead of "eServices". My wife really wants CarPlay, and she wants it to look clean (preferably as if it was...

  10. LED Headlight Upgrade (Kia Soul 2012)

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I purchased a kit that Amazon shows fits the Soul 2012 (H11), but when I took out the stock bulbs, they use a side connector on the bulb instead of the ones like with the 2 pins surrounded by oval plastic. Am I missing some type of adapter or where would these plug into?!
  11. Upgrade 2011 Kia Soul + (plus) Driver's Seat?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    My wife states our 2011 Kia Soul + (plus) seats hurt her back, in particular the driver's seat. She loves her 2016 Fiat 500 seating position. Do I have any options in upgrading to a better Gen1 or higher Kia Soul seat, or maybe other car makes/models altogether that might be more comfortable for...
  12. Well. Did quite an upgrade. 2019 Turbo

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I trade in my old trusty workhorse 2011 Soul+. Could pass on the offer for the new one. DCT was scary at first, but I somehow got how to start it on hills because if not it rolls back (was expecting an auto, because that what it said on the option list.) Mods will come later, for now I just...

  15. Suspension upgrade??

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I have 16 base MT car, I live in San Diego and we have a lot of rough roads with ****ty patchwork in them. I like my car's general ride, even the highway bounce is fine, but on any broken surface it really doesn't filter anything out. I rented a Ford Escape one time and that really smoothed out...

  19. Stereo "upgrade"

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Has anybody attempted to take a stereo from a higher model soul and out it into a lower model?
