‘16 Kia Soul Base A/T
My Soul was showcased in a local business commercial for a car shop to promote Nangkang tires. 🙂
and just a clean pic of the soul.
Sounds familiar. Was there any sugar sand involved?This evening I took my little Jewel to the local swirl and shine car wash. I have a subscription so I go through it quite a bit. $20 a month for unlimited wash and a free vac token. In the winter I buy the $25 plan because it includes the underbody blast to clean all the salt and crud off the bottom of the car.
After the wash finished, I used the free vac token and gave my little Jewel a quick vacuuming. It’s been a while since I cleaned the inside of the car and the floors were pretty dirty.
Then I used my new favorite spray wax, Turtle Wax Ice to give the car a quick detail while drying it off. This stuff, I’ve said it before, is the easiest wax I’ve ever used and it lasts quite a while. It’s been almost 2 months since I used it and I go through the car wash at least 2 or 3 times a week and water was still beading on the car. Good stuff!
Then I used Turtle Wax Dash and Glass to clean the interior plastics and windows too. My little Jewel looks as good as the day she rolled off the assembly line! Well, except for some darn hood chips. 😩
On my way home I passed the local Domino’s Pizza but they were closing soon so I didn’t pick up any pies. Stopped at the Cumberland Farms gas station and paid $5.05 a gallon and pumped 2.197 gallons of gas! To reduce the price shock at the pump I have been getting gas around every 100 miles. I know I’m kidding myself though. At least my little Jewel got 36.9 mpg over the past 81 miles from the last fill up.

They are currently not available. 🥲Finally got around to ordering myself a set of crossbars. Was holding out on getting rail until I found out those a dealer-installed on certain models Here is the link to what I got and some stock photos. Order yours quick, as these just got discontinued and running out. Price is creeping up as they get scarce. Dealer wanted $250 plus install fee, but I think I can manage four bolts LOL

I think you’re right about the lower part of the bumper. It’s a separate piece, that’s good to know.That's the worst rhysoul. A little dent low on the car would not bother me. I do believe the lower valance is a separate piece. GL dealing with it. Stay safe out there.
I'd do the same rhysoul. You take good care of your cars and that's what insurance is for.I think you’re right about the lower part of the bumper. It’s a separate piece, that’s good to know.
If this happened on my 2011 Soul I probably wouldn’t care, I’d do my best to buff it out and use some zip ties to keep the bumper together.
But it’s on my 2019 and that’s still new to me. I just got it one year ago. I filed a claim with Geico and hopefully will talk to the adjuster soon.
Green circle: is the dent and the rock chip film got torn.
Red rectangle: scuffing and scratches (I can feel with my fingernail)
Yellow circle: cracked bumper and inner fender liner is cracked too
(this picture isn’t my car, but it’s the same color)
Yeah me too. It looks a little worse now that it’s light out and I can feel the scratches on my finger. So I don’t know what they’re going to have to do. I have an appointment with an adjuster on Tuesday.Hopefully the doors can buff out and not need to be repainted. I hate when stuff like that happens.
Oh my, that looks worse than mine but it’s the exact location on the doors. How did that happen? I was able to polish away all the black scuffing and was left with just the scratches and dent.
