@OP: If you owned an OBD-II scanner that is blue-tooth connected to your smartphone, you could pull DTCs yourself. DTCs = diagnostic trouble codes. In fact, you might be able to pull a pending code before the Check Engine light comes on.

Observing Air-fuel ratios sensor output and LTFTs (long-term fuel trims) might already give you an idea of potential problems.

Interpreting DTCs is a little like tea-leaf reading but as in all situations in life, more information is better than less.

This way, if and when you do take your Soul into the dealership, you will already know what is potentially wrong with the vehicle.

Perhaps it goes without saying, but driving around with a Service Engine Soon (SES) light or Check Engine light is not a good idea.
