  1. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Had the new Soul for a few months now and i'm noticing those touchless high pressure car washes keep missing the back of the car, i just went to the third different car wash and got the same results, puzzling, is it the shape of the car thats causing this problem?

    So.... Yeah... Antenna and base need replacing. At first I wasn't terribly concerned because I thought I could just buy one of those fancy shark fins and be done but most all of those I find for less than $150 just cover the existing base and screw I to the existing antenna socket. My socket...
  4. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have owned my car less than a week, and a couple days after purchase I found myself in the dealer's neighborhood and decided to take advantage of a "free car wash." The next day I noticed a scuff mark along the driver's door. Maybe it was there all along (it was a returned lease with 14K on...

    My new car is looking pretty dirty - all the pollen and rain here in Charlotte. How does everyone feel about the 'touch-less' gas station type car washes for our new/newer Soul? Do you use them? How often? Do you have to unscrew the back antenna for that type of car wash? Has anyone waxed...

    I'm planning on buying a bottle of the TurtleWax rinseless car wash&wax (not their "Zip" product, but the other rinseless one they offer) for my brand new yellow Soul. I've watched several videos on how to apply it- no rubbing, careful microtowel drying, a section at a time, etc. So I think I...

    Took it through a nicer, automatic touchless car wash with heat blowers at the end. Jumped out to check it out after the wash and noticed the crackling if you will. Both tail lights. Has anyone ever heard of this? I had some plastic cups that would do this. When I was showing it to my...

    Hey all, I have a question about car washes. The gas station where I go has an automatic car wash. The top of the line wash includes washing the underside of the car. I can't see anything good coming from water being sprayed up into the engine compartment from the bottom. What are your thoughts...

    So I went through an automatic power car wash (I don't own a house and the apt I live in doesn't have a water hose for me to use to manually clean my car), and when I got out, I noticed my driver side mirror had folded... outwards. Instead of folding into the car, it was pointing the opposite...

    Just wondering what products/brands you guys always use to wash your Soul's with. Well, besides beer that is. I've alwyas been a self wash guy, don't ever take my cars through those drivethrough ones. Talk about scratching up the car! What brands do you guys use?

    Dunno, why I am exited enough to post a topic or thread about this. I guess just to tell other soul owners theres a soul out there that will always be clean. My sister works at a decent high end car wash and detailing. Her boss usually calls me in every now and then for pc tech work for his...

    Hey Soulsters! Just wanted to know if anyone is going to the car wash to clean your Souls? Do you trust them? Is it safe? Anyone afraid of swirls in their paint? :confused:

    How do you keep your Soul looking good? Do you hand wash and wax? If so, what products do you use and how often? Please give us the name brand. Do you have someone else do the detailing for you? Does anyone get the dealership to do it? Thanks.
