    Time to change out the pads/rotors and shoes. The R1concepts ceramic pads I have on are O.K. I tend to go ceramic so I dont have clean the wheels all the time. Ive been looking around and see alot of talk about Hawk brake pads being good. How they stop you better etc.. They cost alot more...

    As far as I know, these are factory ones? Yesterday morning, I went to fill up the tire with air and had to use a wrench to get it off, which ended up breaking the valve stem and causing air to rush out in a matter of seconds (probably fully deflated in 15 seconds). I switched to plastic ones...

    I have been using Meguiar's Ultimate Wash & Wax for awhile and so far am pleased with the results. I have a Ryobi pressure washer that I used once on my 2 vehicles. I have ordered a "foamer" kit off Amazon that will attach to the pressure washer handle and see how that does. I have also...

    I'm wondering if anyone has any clever ideas for what do you with your phone, while it is connected to the USB port, when using Android Auto. Currently, I just have my cord wrapped up in a zip tie, connected to and stashed under my phone, while it sits in the little cubby hole area below the...

    Got a 2010 Soul 2U with 202,000km on it. Car is in good shape, and is well-maintained - regular oil changes, plugs were done about a year ago with NGK Iridiums, fuel injector/system cleaner is used 3-4 times per year, lots of high-ish speed highway driving, no CEL's on, always use good-quality...

    Hi guys, it's been a while. I'm posting to see if anyone else is having this issue. Just to be clear, this is the base non-UVO system. When trying to make a voice command, it resisters on the radio that it's listening but then just freezes. Restarting the vehicle doesn't solve the issue but...

    We just bought a 2017 Base which does not have fog lights. I'm an Old Soul (59) and have owned cars with and without fog lights. Even when the car had them I never used them. I still think of fog lights as the yellow units on imported sports car. Are fog lights essential, useless, or somewhere...

    Hi, my name is Gina. Love the look of my new 2017 Kia Soul with two tone grey and black interior. Two tone makes it appear classier to me.

    I changed the oil on both Souls tonight. I did the oil change on the 2013 last time, but I had the Kia dealer do the oil change on the 2012. They didn't put the oil dipstick back in all the way, and by the time I caught it there was a nice greasy, oily mess under the hood. So I decided for the...

    Hi all, I have a 2012 Kia Soul 4U. It has an infinity stereo system and I'm changing it to a Pioneer AVH-4000NEX. I'm wondering if there's a harness out there that will let me use the original backup camera that is already installed in my Soul. Or if not, is there a work-around where I can...
  15. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hi - I have a 2016 Kia Soul base with analog meters behind the steering wheel. I don't think I have UVO service if that makes a difference. I would like to know how I can lock/unlock all doors by sticking the key into the keyhole (not via remote). I can lock/unlock driver door only. I called...

    Hi, I want to know if its possible to use siri instead of the integrated voice assistant of my Kia Soul 2016. Siri is way more useful to me than the voice assistant that comes with the soul. I have been looking in this forum, but all I see are threads for old kia souls. I don't have the 8"...

    I see a phone jack in my 2015 Soul+, but the manual tells me it's for connecting an IPod input. I'm wondering if the Soul supports any kind of headphones. My wife drives with her iPod blasting into her ear via earbuds. I'd like to pipe the Soul radio into my Bose noise-cancelling headphones as...

    After the driver's air bag recall was done a couple of months ago The lights turn off every time I use the turn signals. I've taken the car back to the dealership 4 times and they say they can't see it doing it so they wont do anything. We are desperate because I usually does it when we are on...

    I know we have the topic about what oil we use and that made me wonder if everyone just uses the cheapest regular gas or adds additives or what? Rich
