I bought my 2012 Kia Soul + 2.0 AT new in Los Angeles CA. I moved to Ecuador last November and Kia Ecuador does not sell that model here. Only the 1.6 MT. I will have some problems with parts. I asked in Los Angeles about the difference in some of the maintenance such as oil filters, air filters and so. They say they were the same for both models. My question is regarding the spark plugs. Do both models will use the same spark plugs. I was looking at the owner's manual and could not find the specs for the spark plugs. BTW, I had some problems with a sensor and after contacting Kia Korea they honored my warranty here in Ecuador... very nice from Kia. If some one can tell me about the spark plugs, please!
