  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I remember the discussions about Gen 2 on this board and how many disliked it. Slowly, over time, Gen 2 was accepted as the norm but there were, and are, many Gen 1 cars still here (I still have one). My wife's car is a 2013 Gen 1 in relatively good condition. She swore by it and would not...
  2. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    I have a 2013 Kia Soul ! with 18" aluminum wheels. For this winter I bought 2014 Kia Soul 16" steel wheels and covers. I intend to put 215/60R 16 studded snows on all four wheels. My question: Are the lug nuts for the aluminum and steel wheels the same. I noticed you have to put the wheel...
  3. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Is anyone aware of the differences between these two colors. Is Molten metallic like the Inferno is? Or is it just a few shades of difference? I always though that Molten did not look quite right on the Gen 1 cars (no offense, just an internal reaction I had to the color) and Inferno does not...
  4. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I saw a video on YouTube showing the 2013 versus the 2014, both were Exclaims. The differences once put together are striking and there is little comparison, the 2014 is a much nicer, more refined looking vehicle IMHO. I did not get this impression without looking at them side by side. Not so...

  7. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    In another thread, the power figures for the 2 litre engine are quoted (we dont get the 2 litre in the UK) and i was suprised how little extra power and torque the 2 litre has over the 1.6 litre. The 2 litre is a heavy cast iron engine, and the 1.6 litre is lightweight aluminium. Has anybody...
  8. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    My car has the reversing camera and frankly i am not that impressed. I noticed the top line Souls now come with reversing sensors instead....and fit the camera to the slightly lower models. Anybody had experience of both?. How accurate are the reversing sensors at the sides in the rear pillar...
  9. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    As part of my continuing quest to learn.... Totally ignoring tyre diameter, profile etc etc. If my wheels have a rim width of 7 inches........what is the optimum (not minimum or maximum) but optimum width of tyre that could be used on these rims......the rims equate to 175mm.....would the...
  10. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    What did you buy? My dealer told me that 10 years ago around 30% of cars brought into North America were manual transmission, but today it's only about 10% and getting smaller. Based on the posts I've seen in our forum it appears that Soul owners are breaking the trend and embracing the fun of...
