  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I'm moving from Kansas to California on Tuesday. How would my 2012 2.0L Soul do towing a 4x8 uhaul trailer? It's the smallest one I could find. I would be driving from Kansas to Colorado Springs to moab Utah, Vegas and then LA.
  2. Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    The 2020 Soul looks great, but Kia's decision to turn it into a collection of disparate trims with few, if any, option packages is frustrating. I thought I'd start a thread where people would list the combination of exterior and interior options they would put together for their ideal 2020 Soul...
  3. Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    I found these on etsy when google directed me to the sellers page. I ordered two pair for the front and rear seatbelts. They arrived today, and let me tell you that I am very happy with these. Extremely well made and nice quality. I will post pictures of them in the vehicle tomorrow. I think...

    Went to the dealer to purchase a Hyundai Santa Fe, came home with a Kia Soul. It's a 2015 + with 7K miles with the UVO, Audio and Primo packages. Never in a gazzillion years did I think I would own this car but here I am.
  6. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    I have a chance to buy a take off set of Kia Optima 16" wheels to replace my steel wheels. I am just not sure of the look and really want some Soul owners opinions. Thank everyone. Mark A real quick photoshop.
  7. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Hi everyone, I've been dreaming of a Soul for a few years and financially, this is a good time. I did a lot of research on pricing in my area, and looked at several different Souls available. I think this is a great deal, but wanted to get some opinions from the more experienced Soul owners...

    The Soul + I'm looking at is from a private party. It has a large dent on its left side fender, but otherwise looks decent. Mileage is at 60K and as far as I know, the timing belt has to be replaced at 60K. The owner (2nd) says he has not replaced it yet. Soul is priced at $7K. Are there any...

    Hi all, bought my Soul 6 weeks ago and as expected I love it. I drove a Kia Spectra 5SX for 8 years, so buying another Kia was a no brainer. No repairs, no trouble, no recalls, no exploding airbags, what's not to love? I am reading your tips, very interesting, I need to learn more about the...
  10. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    noticed that the "gen 1"s are 10-13, but elsewhere they are divided 10-11, 12-13. i have a 12 + and i need to replace the rear seats. found ones with the right cloth, but are from a 2011. will they bolt in?
  11. ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I can get my hands on a Gen 1 interior lighting kit (part no. U8680 2K000) but I have a gen 2 Soul. Would it work? I know it might not fit where its supposed to but I wonder about the connections. Thanks gen 1 afficianados!
  12. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    New guy here, seriously considering buying a new KIA soul base model, 1.6 manual trans for my girl friend as her very first new ride. We both drove it and although wasnt thrilled about the power of the engine, we loved everything else. Its roomie, shifted well, rode smooth, nice radio, interior...
  13. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    We just completed a 4000 mile trip in a 2015 Soul, bought last week. Got a ding just to the left of the Kia logo on the hood somewhere on I-90 from New York to Massachussetts. On the way back, we stopped at a Kia dealer in Virginia and bought the bug deflector that looks a bit like a unibrow...

    i don't ski or snow board but do like the idea of added cargo space.. what else are roof racks used for? i am drawing a blank.. also are they safe ? 2014 soul base alien green...
  15. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Today I was thinking about what I would change about the design of my Soul if given the opportunity. I decided to look around the forum to find out if anyone else had posted on that topic. One from last year was on how folks felt about the older Souls versus the 2014 model. The owners of the...

    Picked up my brand spankin' '14 yesterday put 300 miles on it so far and I'm digging it. Base with the 6-spd manual. Pretty nicely optioned for a base model but no keyless entry!?! Why does KIA do that? I like to shift gears so I must not want to get in and out of my car easily? Jeez. Well...
