    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)

  2. Kia Distinction Vehicle Protection Plan - worth it? Experiences with claims?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Picked up my new Plus today, she's a beauty in Clear White, and her name is Lilith. When the dealer starts to talk about extended warranty, I usually just wave my hand and tell them to save their breath, but today I decided to hear them out. Has anyone purchased the Kia Vehicle Protection...

  6. Are Oil Catch Cans Worth it Any More?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I haven't bothered installing oil catch cans in any of my cars since I started using synthetic oils. I just haven't noticed the kind of crud buildup in the intake systems that we used to get when dino oil was all we had. I suppose the higher flash points of the synthetics dramatically reduce...
  7. For what it's worth Cold Air/Short Ram DIY

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    I'm sure this has already been covered in some way so apologies in advance. Some CAI or short ram intakes can be pricey sometimes. I found I saved a good bit of money by doing it myself. If you're wanting to do it yourself, it's pretty simple and takes about an hour, maybe less. Your local auto...

  10. Thinking of replacing rotors, are slotted/drilled worth it?

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    So I have to replace a broken lug stud on the front wheel, which involved taking the rotor off which im sure will be fun after 5 NY winters. I was thinking that I might as well replace the rotors while doing this. The cars 5 years old with about 55K miles. Replaced the pads 2 years ago with...
  11. is it worth buying?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Looked at a Kia Soul today at the dealership. I went to look at another car, but didn't like it. We were walking by the soul and the salesman asked if I have ever seen one. I told him no. He said that I should drive it and he guarantees I will like it. I was skeptical, but I test drove it...

  16. 1.6L vs 2.0L in Soul - big differences? Worth it? issues?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
