  1. How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    Looking at this web site, it looks like 10-30 oil is best for the summer months. Interesting. I haven't seen a recommended 10-30 since the 1980's and 90's. So...is 10-30 really appropriate for summer?

    Was just wondering how a basic 1973 VW super Bug with its Curb weight and compare the 2016 Kia soul curb weight(1.6 Auto) with the engine sizes are about the same. The Soul is taller and heavier but the 1.6L engine pulls ok for the soul. You would think the Souls 1.6L engine would be to small...

    Going by the brochure, the 2016 & (base) and (&) + weigh in at 2784 and 2837. In the book they're listed only by engine/trans, not model. The 2017 OTOH are listed by model, and (automatics) weigh 2942, 3163, and 3232 for &, +, and !, respectively. That's a gain 158 lb. and 346 lb. for the 1.6...

    I just noticed something strange with the sensor on the passenger seat. I was driving to work and tossed my tablet on the passenger seat. The little seatbelt indicator for the passenger started blinking. I lifted the tablet and the blinking light stopped and the passenger airbag off light came...

    What's the most weight you've transported in your SOUL?
  6. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    So I am trying to give my 2011 soul a more off road look. Doing the safari roofrack with lights etc.. I have had a ssd light bar on for a while and got to thinking that an ATV winch would be cool. I could easily mount it to the light bar. Just for Sh**s and giggles. But Im just wondering if...

    Sorry for the novel, skip this one if you're in a hurry.. Safety and cost were important to us when getting a new vehicle, so one of the strong selling points when we got the ’14+ several months ago was the high safety rating. But for some reason the other day I starting comparing the curb...

    I took some old motor oil and motorcycle tires to the city landfill over the weekend. As you enter, you have to park on the vehicle scale and go up to the window to tell them what you are dropping off. (Luckily, just about everything is free if it's not general garbage.) I noticed they...

    I have been wanting to build a teardrop camper for my wife and I. It will be about 700lbs fully loaded. Can the soul handle this? i had seen tongue weight of 300 and max tow of 2000lbs.

    Title asks the question. Thanks

    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...
  12. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Anyone know the weight of the stock 16" wheels on the 2011 soul? The wheels with the cut-outs on each of the spokes.
  13. Konig Wheels
    Can you let me know what the weight is on these wheels in 18? Konig Zero In. Thank you.
  14. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    It would seem that Unsprung weight is very important to ride and handling etc. And for most of us - the easiest way to improve that ratio is to buy lighter Tyres when we replace them. Is there a way of compiling a "weight of tyre only" list by size to point us in the right direction come swap time?.
  15. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Does anyone know how much a stock 18" rim weighs off the Soul? I am about to pull the trigger on a set of rims but they weigh 25 pounds each....is that too much??? I wanted to compare that to the weight of the Souls rims.... I dont know much about this stuff - would appreciate feedback!
