I bought a 2016 Base model in late 2015. It was my first new car I have ever bought, and I loved it. I put 50k miles on it, doing long road trips around the country. Sadly, my wife was in a serious car wreck in it, and it was totaled. My wife is 100% fine, other than bruising. The Soul was hit on the front passenger side door, and caused the vehicle to tip on its side hitting a guard rail. After two weeks of researching new cars, I kept coming back to the new Soul. I was super drawn to the new Soul “Exclaim” model with the turbo engine. I just got back from the dealer, where I test drove a wild orange Exclaim... and I fell in love again. It’s amazing, especially compared to my old base model. Sadly, it was late in the evening, and we could sign the paperwork then, but I am heading in Monday when they open, to finish purchasing it.
