  1. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi! I have a 2010 denim special edition (2.0L) It has 167k miles. One day about two weeks ago I went to run some errands on my lunch break and was turning into a parking spot when the engine just very quietly died. In fact I didn’t even realize what really happened at first - just noticed I had...

    This is getting crazy. Has anybody had issues with the oem cheap plastic strut bearings? I have had 3 installed in the last 6 months, only to get a single pop noise when sitting still and slightly turning left or right. the noise is a single snap type noise from the driver front suspension...

    I have searched all over for a resolution on this: When I open the door, my map lights do not come on. The map lights will turn on when you press them (either driver or passenger) but won't come on when opening a door. The "door" button doesn't make a difference, whether it's pushed in "on"...
  4. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi all, I have a vibration issue with my 2011 Kia Soul Plus. Vibration is felt at idle/park in right front tire. When hands are placed on top of tire, a vibration is felt through the tire while running, in park. All other tires have no vibration. Also, vibration is felt through the floor and...
  5. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Our driveway has a light slope to it. I’ll pull up to the garage, put it in Park, hand brake most of time too. I have to get out to manually lift garage door. When I get back in, I put foot on brake, release parking brake, put in drive, release brake. No gas or light gas pedal, when the hill...

    I get a message on the screen that says “ subscription updated? Pressed enter to continue”. What is this about? It doesn’t give me an option to close it out or disregard. It stays there until I press enter. I don’t know if it has to do with downloading my phone information but that usually says...

    I have a 2018 Exclaim and our dealers have very high prices and are 45 minutes away. I am coming up on 1500 miles when I usually get the oil and filter changed and go with pure synthetic. My question is whether I should go to the dealer or work with an independent for this service, and which...
  9. Announcements
    I won't be able to drive for six to eight weeks because of eye surgery. I've been reading various opinions about whether or not the car needs to be started and driven during this period and l'm wondering if anyone here has any more knowledge about it. I don't know if it makes any difference but...
  10. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I notice in the Kia forum, there have been some posts regarding this problem but not here in the Kia Soul Forum. It happens to me - not everytime - but sometimes I will turn off the ignition, remove the key and . . . it will be very hot. It is not related to accessories or length of trip. Today...
  11. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Good afternoon soulmates (see what I did there?), I've been very happy with my Kia Soul 2010 Exclaim over these past 8-9 years. I purchased it new off the lot when they were first released. I've got 130k miles on it and for the most part, it's been very forgiving to me regarding...
  12. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    So today when I left for work I noticed pushing the button to release the auto shifter made a clicking noise (very noticeable) but I never noticed this on my 2014 or before today. Is this something normal or should I take it in to be checked at the dealership? Forgot to mention. 2017 +

    When car has been sitting overnight or at the end of the day I can start it but you hear a sputtering/choking and then the engine revs up and will drive fine. The throttle body and valve have been cleaned as well as the idle air control valve. Was told that the head gasket is getting worn...
  14. How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    When I park the car, but am still using the stereo in some way, I start getting those "draining battery" warnings. Is there a way to keep that from happening (and I think it eventually turns itself off) so that I can keep using the system? I can understand a 30 minute warning, but this thing...
  15. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I have a '16 plus. I've noticed for a good while, to the best of my knowledge, every time I shut down the engine I get five chimes before all goes quiet. I asked once at the dealer and was told the auto lights were on. This wasn't the cause. It seems as though this might be some kind of...
  16. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Greetings fellow forum members! First of all, I'm a relatively new member, and you folks have already been so helpful ... thank you so very much!! :cool-new: That being said, I've got a bit of a dumb question. Our 2018 Soul is by far the newest and "most modern" car we own. As such, are...

    Just did the 4th oil change on my wife's Soul, and this time went with Mobil 1 Synthetic. Had been using Valvoline Premium Conventional. First time ever using synthetic. Better late than never. I've been following the "Severe conditions" schedule, pretty much, simply because she mostly drives...
  18. ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Hi guys, it's been a while. I'm posting to see if anyone else is having this issue. Just to be clear, this is the base non-UVO system. When trying to make a voice command, it resisters on the radio that it's listening but then just freezes. Restarting the vehicle doesn't solve the issue but...

    I have the 2018 Soul Plus with the standard sound system. The volume goes down when backing up. Is there a way to keep the volume from doing this?
  20. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Imagine you are coasting to a stop sign or intersection, not pressing the gas/brake pedal, but you feel the brakes engage to slow the vehicle down. Is this a feature? I tried explaining it to one of my friends who also owns same model/year Soul and he didn't know what I was talking about...
