Hello from Texas.

I purchased my 2016 Kia Soul last February. The past few weeks, I've noticed that it idles high in cold or warm weather at start-up, stops and in park never idles down.

Someone suggested using so type of fuel additive.

Is something like covered by the basic warranty.

Thanks!

Hello, North Islander.

I've not taken it in yet. I was needing input from other owners so when I do talk to the dealership, I can speak intelligently about the issue as I am leary about being taken advantage of.

Yes it is covered by your basic warranty. Don't worry so much about figuring out what it is. That's their job and why you bought a great car with a great warranty.

Give your dealer a chance to make this adjustment to your idling issue. Tell them what you told us.

Then you'll be glad you bought your new Soul.

Best of luck!

:)

Glad you found the SoulForums.

did you ever get the high idle solved. my dealer stated kia knows about high idle and no fix. if the engine light is not on there is nothing they can do.
