  1. Bought mine yesterday

    New Member Introductions
    Only went to test drive one. Started with the 1.6 turbocharged version, all the bells and whistles. Nice car but couldn’t justify the price so went with the Plus version. Traded my old 97 Jeep Wrangler, 340 thousand miles. So far, love this little car. Solid and seems well built and I can haul a...
  2. Picked up my THIRD Kia Soul yesterday

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    We purchased one of the first 2010 Kia Souls sold in CT - alien green +. It was crude but cool, and we loved that car. I still remember when Kia was sending around Korean spec Souls to park at dealers just so buyers could sit in them. We instantly knew the Soul was for us. Then we upgraded to...
  3. Gas smell after filling up yesterday

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hey gang... Hope everyone is surviving the heat and floods we are experiencing this week!! Yesterday, I filled my tank, rounding off to even monies, (a few cents) and took off doing my errands. Since I filled the tank I have smelled a strong gas odor twice. Quick look see offered no clues. It...
  4. Bought my white 2015 SOUL yesterday

    Hi, I am very excited about my new KIA SOUL! I love to drive it and it makes me smile every time I look at it in my driveway. However, tonight we took a little ride to Dairy Queen and when we came out and started it the rear view camera screen was black! No clock, no lights at all! I am...
  5. Got my windows tinted yesterday!

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    So I decided, like I have with all my cars in the past, to get the windows tinted. Of course the Soul has the stock tint on the back windows, so I matched up the front. It looks really nice on the Dune color, and just waiting for the drying process to finish and then will take pics. Even on the...

    Howdy. I feel like I got a great medium sized vehicle with mid-range options for a compact / low-end price. Looking forward to reading your accumulated wisdom, and your help with questions is appreciated in advance.
  7. Took a 2014 base for a test drive yesterday....

    New Member Introductions
    and loooooooved it! The dealer only had a few base 2014's so I am waiting for an Exclaim to arrive. It has the sun and sound package, but not the whole Shabang. Question for you Soul veterans.... Heated/Cooled seats, yay or nay? Push Button Start, yay or nay? My husband wants both of those...

    I just purchased a 2012 soul plus 6 speed manual transmission with only 7,022 miles on it. It seems like a very nice ride. Glad to be part of the community.

    Hi all from Seattle! Goodbye to my Beetle, hello to my Soul! Love it so far, although my average mpg indicator reads 18 (from city driving) should I be worried?
  11. Got my 727's yesterday.

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Threw on a set of Hankook Optimo H727's yesterday. Boy am I impressed. My Soul rides much better vs my Optimo 426's. No longer do I feel or hear every single little crack in the pavement. 100,000 tread life and they are rated at the top of Consumer Report's testing of luxury all season...

  13. First Long Drive in the Soul Yesterday - The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I had a bunch of driving to do around Florida yesterday, and ended up burning up just about exactly 1 tank of gas (334 miles, 11 gals). Started out in Titusville, up to Gainesville for a memorial service, then up to Stark for a family visit and back down to T-ville to drop my Mom off. Since I...
  14. Picked up a 2013 Titanium Base 6MT Yesterday

    New Member Introductions
    After months of toying with the idea of buying a new car, I decided it was time to pull the trigger yesterday. My local dealer had some rather nice incentives this month, so I wound up getting my 2013 Base for a great price, and even have some rebate money coming for 15" Wheels I'd like to put...
  15. Bought a 2013 Soul! w/ Premium Package Yesterday

    New Member Introductions
    Hello from close to Dallas, TX. Bought a 2013 Soul! w/ Premium Package Yesterday. Moss Green. Drove it to work today, loved it. I need to figure out why my GPS is soooo out of date. If anyone knows how to get it updated for free (I read the owners manual) please let me know. Also, are...
  16. Hello! Got our 2013 Soul + in Shadow yesterday.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Got a good deal on our trade and free lifetime oil changes also free car washes and after warranty expires dealer will still cover. So happy with that. I want to do some things of course to it 1: Getting the dealer sticker off the back 2: Get the windows tinted. Wanted to apply a 2nd layer...
  17. 2013 Base Auto purchased yesterday

    New Member Introductions
    Greetings all! I have been a Ford Ranger owner for the past 15+ years. The latest Ranger was 10 years old and repair costs were adding up. Plus it was getting too hard to ferry the kids around trying to swap between the Ranger and my wife's Altima. I needed a new 4 door car with good mpg and a...
  18. Picked up my 2012 Soul + yesterday : First impressions

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    One word: Wow! Great handling, great acceleration, love the features. Having said that, if the car's reliability in the long term isn't at least good, all those things are meaningless. I think the Owner's Manual was missing. There was something like an accessories guide. Is there another...
  19. Did my own body work yesterday.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I got rear ended couple weeks ago and saw that it was pretty cheap to buy a replacement piece for the bumper. I have the sport model and the part that got damaged it was the black bottom piece of the rear bumper where the license plate goes. I ordered the piece online for about $75 and decided...
