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.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 )
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.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 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."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
