  1. Weather Tech or Factory? Window Visors

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    I've had two sets of factory visors and they worked well. One came loose, the dealer fixed it when I drove in with the part flapping. I've got a set of Weather Tech but am having second thoughts. We got the front pair in, the back has clips and is a bit more complex. Your experience? Thanks...
  2. Cold weather warm-up

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I have this 2013 Soul !. The weather here is St. Louis has been rather mild (40's). I have been jumping in it in the morning and just taking off. It seems to get warm pretty quick. This morning I woke up to about an inch of snow, so I thought I'd warm the car up to melt it of the glass...

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    Weather Tech is now producing Side Window deflectors, about $115 for the 4 doors. The down side, besides the price is that the rear door deflectors are held in with clips. After following the installation instructions for the clips, I installed the deflector and it just fell out. Tried it on the...
  7. Sirius Traffic and Weather don't 'stick'

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    So for today's weird problem. After the 3 month trial (music, traffic, weather, 'all access' - everything worked fine) Sirius promised me I could get Traffic/Weather along with music for the next six months for a good price. When we re-activated after the 3 month trial - no Traffic/Weather...

  9. Replaced low/hi headlights with LEDs. What about the weather covers?

    How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    I changed the headlights on my wife's 2014 Kia Soul (combo low/hi) for LEDs (OPT7 LED Headlight Bulbs w/ Clear Arc-Beam Kit - H13 (9008) - 80w 7,000Lm 6K Cool White CREE). It was easy on the passenger side and 'fun" getting it done on the driver side, but it worked although the driver side...
  10. OEM or Weather Tech Cargo Liner?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Let me hear the opinions of the experienced if I may; price/function/quality? Any difference really? Other than looks, how about fit and quality? They both do the same thing; protecting your interior right? So which do you all prefer? I'm taking a vote befor I purchase. Thanks! :)
  11. Hard Initial Shifting in Cold Weather

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Not even really cold weather -- I'd say anything under 30 F. And the shifting is not really hard, either. It's just a bit of a chore to shift into first, and a bit more of a chore to shift into reverse, when the manual transmission is cold. It's also a bit on the rough side shifting between...

  13. 2013 Soul!--Dead Battery in Rainy Weather

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Today is the second time in a week that I can't start my car. The first time was just after Memorial Day (the car sat out in the rain all weekend) and I was ready to go to work and nothing worked--both fobs couldn't unlock the doors (I even changed the batteries in each). It cost me $75 for a...

  17. Are there Kia Soul OEM all weather rubber floor mats available?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I had a salesman tell me there are. I don't believe anything a salesman tells me. Does anyone know if there are OEM all weather rubber floor mats made for the 2012 Soul? Not universal mats. Made specifically for the 2012 Soul offered by Kia. Not aftermarket mats sold by a Kia dealership.

  19. All Weather Mats for 2012

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Who can recommend All Weather Mats for my 2012 Exclaim? I really like to look and price of the Rubbertite Mats from Lloyds, but they aren't available yet. I also liked the fact that they came in Ivory to match my Dune interior. I'm pretty sure I can get Weathertechs but they are pricey and don't...
