Traded in my Ford Focus ST170. I´ve actually never driven nor seen a Soul yet so i hope the car lives up to my expectations :eek:

Now to the bad news: my dealer said that i have to wait approx. 16 weeks for the car :(

It´s a 1.6-gasoline with 126 bhp.
The version is "Shine" which is the 2nd cheapest model.
Others models in Finland are Graphite, Retro Chic and Street Burner.

Hello Svante,

You are not alone we are waiting from the 23 of may.
For a bright silver one.
Tell us as soon as possible when you get the Soul.

Regards,

What is the car in your Avatar?

Don't wait 14 weeks - Vacation in Floriida here in the States - buy a Soul here and have it shipped home. It might be very economical depending on the Import Laws for private citizens in your country. Plus you'd get the larger engine in anything other than the base model.

Welcome to the group..
FWIW,

Hi again.
The car in the avatar is my summer-toy; a 700 cc Smart Roadster Coupé http://i214.photobucket.com/albums/cc285/svalkein/Autot/vng-795.jpg

So i´ve waited for my Soul for 6 months now, the dealer told my last friday that the car has been manufactured now but it is still in Korea. It will arrive here after two months which means an 8-month wait- i bet a could have got a hand-made Ferrari quicker than that!

Svante, why didn't you make a trip over here to Sweden? ;)
I might have done that if i had known it takes this long- ingen tvekan om saken!
On the other hand i think i got a good price on my Ford Focus in exchange for the Soul.

The main reason for the long wait is that the company that represents Kia´s in Finland almost went bankrupted in august, therefore they´ve had difficulties to get new cars delivered to customers.

soultosoul: the car won´t arrive until next year, i know because it takes six weeks for the ship to sail from Korea to Finland :-/

The wait is almost over! The dealer called and told me i can pick up the car next week. The good thing is that Kia has granted a 7-year warranty for cars registered in 2010, which is nice.

I´ve waited for the car 9½ months, it has to be an all time record wait for a Soul, wouldn´t you agree :eek:
