    New Member Introductions
    I just picked up a new Kia Soul this month, the first new car I have had in 20 years. I had a beast near 200k miles I traded in, I am so delighted to have this Soul and not to have to worry about breakdowns for a good while. Every time I saw a Soul in a parking lot, I was intrigued. Then...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I bought my lovely 2014 Latte Soul Base A/T back in March 2014. Had a whole 31 miles on it! (guess from other test drives) Got it for $14,222 with a few extras like mudflaps, SOUL floor mats, and maybe a few other dealer add-ons. No real mods besides my Amp and 2 12's I pulled from my 2003...
  5. 6 years in a soul

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Ok, I'm a 6.6" young old fart living in central Texas. In 2010 I purchased a new Soul base with a 1.6l engine and a manual transmission. For much of my life, I was a VW Type II driver, so above average performance was not something that I put much in the consideration mix. I was quite pleased...

  7. Six years with my Soul

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Bought the car new July 2009. 97,000 miles on it now. Never had to use the warranty! Besides oil changes, all four brake pads replaced, coolant flush, and set of new tires, I've had no other maintenance to this car. Really happy with the outcome. Still worth around $8000 according to...
  8. Broken AC line- 2nd time in 2 years

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I was wondering if anyone else had this problem. I had a crack in the AC line in January, 2013 and it was fixed/covered under warranty. I recently turned my AC on and it started blowing warm air again.. I took it to VanDevere Kia dealership hoping it was still covered under warranty. It was...
  9. 1000 posts and 2 1/2 years later...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    The Soul is still a good car. It has been exactly what I wanted it to be - a cheap daily commuter that can do most things pretty well. It's so cheap, in fact, that every time I think I'm tired of it and will just sell it, I can't rationalize it because it's just so damn cheap to own. I will...
  10. 5 1/2 years on factory battery

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    And my Soul still starts up nice and easy. Was 10F degrees this morning and the car started up nice and fast. Same with the factory brakes. I just replaced those this year and after inspecting them, I only really needed to replace one of the pads as the other three were still good. South...

    So I have been coming to KSF for 5 years now! It has been a slice! I hope to continue to enjoy getting informed and entertained for another 10 years or more! I have joined other Soul internet sites but none has kept me coming back better than KSF. My Soul has been a true friend this whole 5...
  16. Limited Edition Souls throughout the Years

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Wonder if a 'Limited Edition Garage' could be set up with images of the limited edition Souls throughout the years? I have only seen the Red Zone in person, but heard of other editions that are mentioned but am clueless as to what they look like and sometimes references to the ltd are made...
  17. just got my Soul after 10 years with Honda Element

    New Member Introductions
    I enjoyed my Element but after 10 years it was time to change. I have had my eyes on the Soul for a long time and nothing else out there held much appeal. I have had it now for 1 week and am really enjoying it. Already have nearly 1000 miles after a trip to Georgia. I definitely want a roof rack...
  18. 2014 Kia Soul 16" spare tire kit same as previous years?

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    I know 2014 kit is available, but just wonder if the previous 2012-2013 yrs kit or even earlier yrs will work as well. So I may get one cheaper instead of limiting myself to 2014. It is 16" wheel. Thanks.
  19. Advancing years problem (sigh). Where's my %$#^&*ing block heater?!?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Help! I've forgotten where the block heater plugin connection is on the exterior of my 2011 Kia Soul! The temp got to minus 23 C last night and she started no problem but I'd really like to plug in the block heater tonight, just to be safe. Thanks in advance.
  20. First new car in almost 10 years

    New Member Introductions
    Hi All, I live in Atlanta GA. Just bought a 2014 Soul this weekend, when I realized my old 99 Camry wouldn't pass emissions this year. I had originally wanted a 2013 + model, but they didn't have any on the floor, and I got this 2014 base model (with a few additions) instead. I lucked out...
