  1. Washing tip

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    For those of us who live in northern areas where copious amounts of road salt is used, here is a tip I hope helps. I noticed that there is a 1/4" gap all around the window and moulding of the Gen2 rear door. As we all know crap gets sucked onto the back of the car in large amounts. I noticed...
  2. Carpet gets wet after rain or washing

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have a 2012 Kia Soul that I have noticed that the carpet is wet. The first time was after I washed it. The passenger side carpet was wet in the front and back. I just noticed it was wet today after some heavy rain. This time both sides were saturated in the front and in the back. I have seen...
  3. post car detailing issue

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi Soulsters! So I took my bebby girl to this guy who details cars "on the side." Warning: "on the side" is just code for jacka$$. I've noticed a white haze on the black parts of my Soul that won't come off with water. He also stained my driver seat with something that looks like oil, as the...

    Hey folks. My new ride had it's first hand wash today. After buying a crap load of (too expensive) washing products I cleared my afternoon for a multiple hour hand washing, drying and tire glazing cleaning. Wanted to share the finish product with you fine folks as no one else would appreciate...

    Owners Photo Gallery
    Country bug goo removal/new bumper stickers I spent my Spring Break out in the country last week, and drove back to the city in a SOUL riddled with bug guts and dust. The different colored entrails of various insect species splattered all over my windshield, hood, and grille were revolting to...
  7. Washing Exterior

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    How do you keep your soul pure? What sort of wash procedure do you undertake? Do you use the laser zapper wash? Or the old-fashioned flappy wash? Hand-only?

  9. Washing with a Wind Deflector

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Any one know if I need to take off the wind deflector to go through a car wash?
  10. No swirl washing?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I heard the best thing to do when you get a new car is to tell the dealer not to wash it, so as they won't put swirl marks all over it. But once you get the car, what is the best way to wash? If I take it to a wash bay where you use the wand to wash it, is that safe? I would not use the brush...
