  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Took the dog for a ride and had the back windows open, dang strange wind noise felt like a drum in my head and a wooble wooble type sound the whole time windows were open, anyone else notice this and if so would the stock window deflectors cure this? Thanks
  2. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I've reported previously an issue with our driver's-side window and wind noise (2014 +). After taping off every crack/opening I could find and 3 attempts at the dealer (which actually only made things worse in that repairs resulted in a door/window rattle), I've now tried "conditioning" the...
  3. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Going 50mph and up when I lower either, or both back windows there is a very loud rapid thumping. It is so loud it actually hurts the ears. My wife can't stand it. Neither can it. You can feel it clear down to the stomach. If I open a front window at the same time it continues but not quite...

    So I searched and didn't see a write up on the install for the window vents ...I did my wife vehicle this week (since hers arrived first) and did Chief's tonight. The set with hers came with alcohol swabs for prepping the surface ...mine did not so I prepped it myself with a rag and rubbing...

    Now that the SSD roof rails are installed, I was itching to get some cross bars. So, yes, I went to Wal-mart to try my luck with the Reese 48" crossbars. I have no idea why they are upside down... They barely fit......as I am considering trimming some of the rubber on the crossbar mount...

    I have only but two questions at this time. 1. WHERE is the 'Search Bar' on this website to search for topics within the Kia Soul a Forums website? 2. Has anyone or does anyone know how to remove the fabric Sunroof Wind Deflector? I'm getting tired of vacuuming it...?
  8. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Howdy, I just started having a problem with my 2011 Soul 2U at highway speeds when it has been quite cold (-30 C and colder) that the passenger side floor has a frigid wind that blows through even when the car is warm and blowing hot air regardless of heater setting. Its so bad that its...
  9. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello, On the way home from Palm Springs, CA today I was in a very strong headwind (guessing 30-40 mph) driving 70 mph. All of a sudden my car developed a very loud wind noise on the interior in spite of all the windows being rolled up. I stopped at the next rest area and found that my right...

    You may be aware that I posted a good review about Heko wind deflectors a couple of weeks ago. I did mention my concerns about the ones' on the rear window as they are only only held in with thin strips of tape. The front ones' are fine as they flex & click into place and are really rigid. Well...

    Just fitted the Heko wind deflectors. Well impressed with the service. I ordered day 1, got a confirmation EMail with tracking number and a link to the carrier and was able to monitor its progress from the Czech Republic to the UK which took three days! Hows that for good service? Anyway, I...
  15. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I'm guessing it's because of the Soul's lightweight body and high profile, but I've never driven a car that gets pushed around so easily on a windy day. If I'm on the freeway during a 30 mph wind, I find myself really wrestling with the steering wheel. Anybody else experience this, or is it...
