  1. Seeking deep water tire recommendation

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    Hi all - my 2010 soul+ was totaled by a hit & run, with 4 new Michelin Premier A/S I just bought in December. I took them off and plan on selling them. I bought a 2014! but the tires are crap. I'm sliding all over the place. I'm in Florida where we have a lot of rain during hurricane season...
  2. 2011 soul. Water leaking into spare tire area

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So 2 weeks ago I looked in the spare tire area and found 3+ inches of water in it. Got it all out and didn't see any where it could be coming from. It rained again and again I had like half gallon to a gallon of water. Dried it out went underneath and smeared rtv silicone on over the grommets...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    the swamp cooler next door was leaking, spraying water all over the right side of my 2018 Soul. i didn't really notice it. i live in the desert and had no reason to get in the passenger side of the car. evidently after 2-3 weeks of this i finally noticed the water spots ALL OVER the right side...
  4. Water In Side Marker Light 2014 Base

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Anyone ever have a problem with water in their side marker light (also known as as a "side repeater") housing? If so how would one go about remedying the problem? I would take a picture but it's dark outside now. Maybe tomorrow after work I can but not sure it would do any good. It's a side...
  5. 2017 Soul Base Water inside hatch

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I have only seen one post in the Gen I side about this. When I get the car washed at an automatic wash, there are streaks of water that comes and leaves droplets on the back window. It loos as if its coming out from the corners of the third brake light. When I first saw the droplets I thought...
  6. water damage- rear end collision

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I was rear ended Sept 2014 and had the car fixed, in Jan 2015 I moved to Alaska (where there is more rain) and on Thanksgiving Day I realized I had 2 inches of water in my floor boards and the tire well had water almost to the top of my spare tire. I have been back and forth with the Kia...
  7. hard water spots on side glass of 2014 KIA Soul Plus

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I am getting what looks like hard water spots on both side window glass of my 2014 KIA Soul+. I have tried just about everything including going thru twice in the automatic car wash. The weird part it is that it is only on the side glass and no where else. Has anyone else had this problem or...
  8. water leaking in from dome light

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I had not been driving for a few days and when I got into my car, water was pouring in around the back seat dome light. The back seat was soaked through like a sponge and the back floor was wet. I have an dealer-installed sunroof, which was not open (if actually closes automatically when the car...
  9. Dripping water

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Noticed water dripping from the engine area last night. I know this happens when running the AC but I had defrost on and not the AC. I actually don't ever recall seeing dripping while using the AC. It appears to be really clear cool water. 2015 Base Soul. Thanks
  10. Water leaking into cabin, where to start looking?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Scenario* Soul was parked outside for about a week, during the week some storms with heavy rain came through. Upon getting in the car the smell of mildew was strong and it turned out that the passenger footwell was soppy wet (looked like it ran down the side of the center console). *possible...
  11. Aloha! I'm new too. (Is it in the water?)

    New Member Introductions
    I've had my new Soul for one week and 3 days. So far I like her pretty well, and I'm just trying to get used to her after driving Jeeps for the past 23 years. (Loved my Jeeps, but done with 18MPG). I have a Q for you all experienced Soul owners; Has anyone found fairly nice seat covers for...

  13. Metallic rattle at accelerate/ water sloshing sound but might not be?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Well if I can get any insight as to what I've been experiencing for these 2 issues for quite a while, it would be appreciated. Basically for almost 2 years, ( currently only 15k miles on the car) there is a metallic rattle that starts when accelerating from 18mph to 22mph. It stops and then...
  14. Water in my headlight

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have a 2012, and I recently noticed one of my headlights was foggy and there is standing water at the bottom. I'm not sure how the water got in there, but it was probably from taking it through a car wash. Dealership said it's covered as long as it stays foggy after 10 minutes with the ligths...
  15. Water spots on your Soul and how to eliminate most of them.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I just came back into the house after giving the Soul a much needed bath. While I was out there, I started thinking that I was probably not the only person who ends up with water spots from minerals (and who knows what other chemicals) all over the car after washing. In the warmer weather I will...
  16. double resonator bypass- water worry?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    So this past weekend I bypassed both intake resonators... The upper one I used some duct tape to seal off the hole on the little box before shoving it back into the intake elbow... the spring clamp seals the duct tape securely. No problems there. the "big" resonator under the airbox I did by...
  17. Air Conditioner water dripping on carpet and feet

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I hope someone has more knowledge than I do in this area. I need to be well informed when I go to the repair shop. My Soul hit a deer on Mothers day and was repaired by the dealership that I purchased it from. After the first long road trip that I took (with a/c running) I parked the car and...
  18. Find the AC evaporator drain

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    ...Can anyone tell me or stear me to a site. that shows how to find the drain tray for the AC evaporator..Apparently mine has become plugged or disconnected and the condensate is flooding the passenger side floor. The carpet is under water. Also, it looks like the AC is on all the time and...
  19. Temp reading on dash (not water temp) is questionable.

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I thought the temp reading on the dash was the outside air. It's always higher than what is stated on radio. Is the sensor located on the dash right near the windshield? Honda uses that spot to control the A/C output to cool the cabin area as accurately as possible to reduce fuel usage...
  20. water, gas, carwash....

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So, this morning, early.. I had to get gas. Hey, why not run it through the wash too. Seemed like a good idea on this frosty dark morning. I pumped my gas, got the wash entrance code from the pump.. proceeded in. It was a quick wash at a rather thorough high pressure drive through type...
