It doesn't look like anyone has posted here for awhile. I have a 2012 Kia Soul + Alien in Southern NH. Hello all you New Englanders!

Hello all, just got my Red Rock Soul yesterday. Didn't really care about the Red Rock color but it had all the stuff I would have added to a normal ! anyway :)

Hey, I just started looking around because I'm still working on my profile and "garage." I have a 2010 Molten Soul (love to say that), and I live in Central CT. BEST CAR I HAVE EVER HAD!!!

Why don't you join us for Hamsters in the Mist II on the first Saturday in June. It is our second International meet. There is a thread on Soul Hamsters and here in the Canadian central section of the forums

If we meet up maybe we should organize some "Soul's take Mt Washington" meet or something....gotta admit it'd be freaking awesome seeing a train of Soul's wheeling up the mountain.
And i'm sure we could all get discounted rates as a large group! -- this one is for Car clubs :p)
We drove to the top of Mt Washington last September, what a drive (had my Rondo at the time) made use of the manual mode on the climb and coming back - what a drive. The CD they give you is very good, giving you all the details as you climb and got my official certificate for doing it.
It was not clear on the top and you could hardly see a thing, but the day before we were on the other side and rode up on the Cog Railway and it was totally clear.

Same here. are you that green one i see driving about town? -- i've got a silver Soul + w/ audio package and Eco package.
I think you might be getting confused between Active ECO (which is standard on all automatics) and the ECO package which contains ISG (Idle Stop and Go) as it was never released to the US market for the 2012 models. A lot of owners have been getting confused on this subject.

"software patch" for ISG - that's good ;) like to see them pull that one off, it involves a lot of different mechanical components to create ISG. Makes you wonder where they get their info from :think

i had that same thought origonally but being as most cars now-adays are mostly computerized i presumed he knew what he was talking about. i did some research and saw the 2.0 Eco package , saw the car i was looking at had the Active Eco- talked to dealer they confirmed it was the 2.0 Eco package showed me the Low roll tires battery and alternator and when i test drove it and couldn't get ISG to work that's when he fed me that line. looking into it i saw KIA mentioned in spots delayed release of ISG so presumed dealer knew what he was talking about.
