A very substantial little car. I came from a Range Rover Land Rover. I loved the look of the Soul (mine got rally stripes, cool rims & a carbon fiber roof). I am quite pleased with the quiet,tight, go-cart type feel, the heavy doors and great sound system. I had read J.D. Powers reviews, then looked it up on ClarkHoward.com ,test drove it and fell in love. I bought through Carvana.com(another Clark Howard tip) and it was the best car buying experience I have EVER had!! Caution: spontaneous hamster dancing may ensue!

A neat machine

I traded a Lincoln Town car for a 2010 Soul!. I was tired of a large, bulky car and decided it was time to "downsize" into something simple, clean and easy to maneuver. I drove it until the 2014 models came out and found many changes had been added. The navigation system is the best I have ever seen in a car. The audio quality is super and the handling is fine. Plenty of room in the rear for whatever you are hauling and, I will never own another car without the backup camera. It has saved me a few times from "bumping" into things that do not need to be bumped. I will buy a 2018 when they come out, provided I live that long. It is an amazing car for the value and my dealership (Sunset KIA in Venice, FL) is beyond all in customer satisfaction.

Inferno Red Plus Mostly Delights

In the late summer of 2015, my 2000 Honda CR-V, which had performed flawlessly for 15 years, began to have some issues and I commenced searching for its successor. I was set on purchasing a 2015 Honda Fit, but in August the model and color (red) I wanted wasn't available in Northern California, so I considered my Plan B - a Kia Soul. I had started to notice these quirky-looking, boxy vehicles after the redesign and I was quite attracted to the refreshed look. The reviews across numerous sites were mostly very favorable and I decided to visit Kia of Marin for a test drive. I immediately noticed how solid the vehicle felt and similar to the CR-V, I really liked the sensation of sitting high vs. the Fit, which has a lower profile. Overall, I was very impressed and when I inquired about the availability of an Inferno Red Plus, the dealer was able to get one in 2 days. What really cinched the deal was Kia's $2,000 discount and the availability of a 1.9% financing deal for 66 months with no money down. Bottom line - I drove out in a new Soul Plus for less than 19K, including tax and license. Seems like a great vale. Driving experiences - After 5,000 miles here is what I have learned: First, I had a few negative early impressions, which have moderated or reversed over time: 1. Blind spot on the passenger side - Due to the rather thick pillars where the tail lights reside, I have had to get used to a significant blind spot, which requires me to position the side mirror in such a way that I can see a car in that blind spot and I do a visual check every time I make a lane change to the right. On the driver's side, I have no problem. I don't like the blind spot, but I deal with it. 2. No CD Player - As an older driver accustomed to having CD's in the car, this was going to be a deal-breaker for me but I decided to open my mind to using a flash drive and plugging into the USB port. Good move! I don't miss the CDs and the clutter at all and I can put so much music on a flash drive. It's really a no-brainer. 3. No spare tire - That's just silly and this "kit" they provide is a joke. Pay the $250 or so for the spare tire assembly unless you love repairing them on the side of the road. 4. Back seat doesn't lay flat when folded down and falls about 6" short of the front seat. As a percussionist with lots of drums and other gear, I thought this would really suck for me, but it was a false alarm. I get all of my instruments into the vehicle with no problem and I use the "gap" between the seats to store skinny items like cymbals, mic stands etc. Driving - The Soul drives smoothly and confidently and I don't experience the "vague" steering that many reviewers have noted. It handles curves just fine and gets up hills (many in Marin County where I live) without undue effort and doesn't roll back when stopped on a hill, which is a revelation. Breaking is good enough and power is more than adequate with the 2-liter engine. Gas Mileage - This is a weak point of the Soul as my combined mileage is less than 22 in Eco mode, not the bogus 26 MPG claimed on the sticker. However, since I monitor the MPG on every trip, if I stay on the freeway, the car will return roughly 31 MPG. It's on the side streets and hills where it falls back to about 18 MPG. Stereo System - Since I didn't get the upgraded audio package, I settled for replacing the front component speakers with new Hertz speakers and the sonic experience improved dramatically. I am considering adding a Phoenix Gold small subwoofer to ensure that the low frequencies are audible and don't get swallowed up by road noise. Comfort - I would give this 5 stars if it weren't for the annoying positioning and hard materials of the head rests. The head rest feels really uncomfortable when I lean into it. The seats are very comfortable and I feel like I have plenty of room as a driver and I know passengers feel quite comfortable as well. Other - All the doors and the rear gate open effortlessly, making it a breeze for me to get all my gear in and out of the vehicle. Beware of the key fobs. I didn't like the idea of carrying 2 bulky key fobs in case I misplaced one and the dealer had no suggestions for how to get a simple spare key made. After countless calls to Kia and to locksmiths who wanted to charge up to $200 to make one for me, I found a local locksmith who used a Lexus blank to make me a spare that I can put in my wallet which opens the doors and starts the engine ... for $35. I highly recommend this option if you are like me and never want to be locked out. Overall, this is a very fun car to drive and a great value to boot, especially if you can wait for a year-end deal. It's quirky, but I can't think of a better option in this price range.

I got Soul!

LIsten,,,I always thought this was an ugly little car but that doesn't matter now,,,,I love this car,, it is the most comfortable car I have driven!, I love the drivers seat and the fact that it is long which makes it very comfortable for me when I'm driving. I have long legs so it works out just fine for me. I can not wait to take my first trip in it to visit my family in PA to see how much mileage it will get per gal. There is a lot of room in the back, seat wise and head wise and I think there is enough room in the back for groceries and shopping trips!,,,lol....I love my Soul and I'm sorry I didn't get one sooner!!!!

This is my 2nd soul. I traded my 2011 in when it began having starting issues at 118,000 mi. I liked it better and now wished I had just put the effort into fixing it. Both are base model manual transmission. Don't get me wrong its still a great car that suits my needs. I'm only averaging 30mpg. My '11 got 34-38 mpg. The cargo space is smaller. The larger tires make chaining up a nightmare (live in the mountains) not enough wheel well room. The only thing it does better than my old one is get up my steep driveway. It cost$4,000 more than my old one. It gets 8mpg less, less cargo. Basically I paid for whole mess of gadgetry that for me I will never use. I am disappointed. Not giving up though. I look forward to an AWD model hopefully in a manual transmission with improved mpg.

One year with my 2015 Kia Soul !

I have driven the Soul for a year now for 7000 miles. The Audio amplifier failed and was replaced. The drives door seal split open from getting in and out Was replaced and 6 months later has split again. I really like the car except for the headrest which is much too close to my head when driving. I cannot adjust it enough to make it comfortable. That one item may keep me from buying another if Kia doesn't correct it. According the forums, I am not the only one with this complaint. I have replaced the original tires with Bridgestone Driveguard run flat tires. They are great. Kia service has bean very good!

bout time to have fun

Great car for driving. Very comfortable, easy to get in and out of for us older folks. Zippy attitude in the city and on the highway. Just did a day in San Francisco and what fun. No trouble up or down the steep hills. The vehicle did not roll back when stopped on a hill at a light. First time ever either stick or auto. Hate the fact that the car is marketed for youngsters. This car has so much going for it. Great headroom. Both front and rear seats are comfortable and roomy. I came from a Mazada MPV and only regret is less room in trunk area. Mileage is soooo much better and the direct front wheel handling is fantastic. Have tried to do all kinds of driving since purchasing this vehicle and in all areas mountains, to freeway, city to country it is really a gem. Glad I found this lovable drive-able car to be a very good choice for my last car purchase. Truly believe it will do the job until I stop driving. It doesn't hurt to have a really good warranty longer than the rest of the market.

If you are tall this is a great little car!!!

I shopped for a Soul a year ago and ended up buying a Honda Civic instead. No knock on the Civic, but it just wasn't the right car for me, and I found myself still looking. I came back around to the Soul. Kia had special financing, and the dealer was offering a better deal than I could find a year ago, so I took the plunge and bought the 2016 Soul+ with the Audio/Nav package. Wow! I'm so glad I bought it! I love the extra driving height and extra headroom. There's more room in the back seat. There's more cargo room. It's fun to drive. Acceleration is good with the 2.0 liter engine. Handling is good. Pro reviewers talk about "numb" steering but I don't notice it. It drives and handles fine. That said, it's not a sports car so don't buy this if that's what you want. It has lots of creature comforts like a great audio system that thumps you in the chest if you want it to, but can be tamed if desired. The nav system works well. I didn't think I wanted it, but now that I have it I use it often. I like the climate control system. I have it set and never need to touch it. It keeps the cabin comfortable no matter what the outside temp is. It has a large touch screen that is easy to use and pretty intuitive. You can check Kia's site for a full breakdown of features. For me the important thing is the features it has all work together to create a fun and comfortable driving experience. I've only had it a month so I can't comment on long term durability, but so far there's not a squeak, not a rattle, everything works flawlessly, and the materials and workmanship are first rate, especially for a vehicle in this price range. A+ for the Soul!

Happy and satisfied

I was in dire need of a good car. Tried finding a good used car with less then 100k miles on it but everyone wanted damn near $7,500 for one. So, I decided to buy a brand new small car for ~$15,000. I purchased a 2015 Kia Soul with a 1.6L engine and a manual transmission. I'm 6'3", 220 pounds and I have lots of head room and leg room in it. This is the first car I have ever drove that I could not drive with the seat fully back, there's that much leg room! Even in the back seat I have plenty of head room and leg room, that's a rare find even on more expensive cars! The 1.6L engine is on the smaller side but with the manual transmission I can nail the peak horsepower curves for some impressive acceleration. No problems quickly reaching highway speeds. The engine make a cool deep throttle sound at 3500 to 5500 rpm in hard acceleration. Interior is awesome, I've owned it for nearly 8 months and drove for over 20k miles and I'm still finding neat features about it. The cargo area is smaller then most but it can handle one overloaded grocery cart full of groceries easily. I installed a small trailer hitch on it and use a cargo hitch basket for long trips with the kids. The internal storage area and the cargo basket will carry luggage for four people with plenty of room to spare. The only negative I've seen is the back two corners do have a larger then normal blind spot, but I consider this a very minor problem. UPDATE- After 1 year and 3 months and 33k miles of driving my new Kia Soul I still love it! Added a trailer hitch which I use for a trailer hitch tray. Perfect for hauling push mower, weed wacker and gas can. Even use a small trailer with my Kia Soul to help clean up the yard from tree trimmer and such and to help friends move their belongings. Absolutely no problems with it. Found the idea MPG at 40-50 mph, I can reach 36mpg at those speeds. High speed expressway driving greatly reduces MPG to 29-31MPG due to wind resistance and a high reving 6th gear. Still wished Kia would have made a 7th gear but I believe most people would not understand that you could only use 7th gear under certain idea conditions. UPDATE- After 1 year 9 months and 45,000, no problems at all with my 2015 Kia Soul. I'm still loving it! :-) *****GAS MILLAGE IS A LOT BETTER THAN WHAT IS LISTED******* 29-30mpg driving it like I stole it LOL. 35-38mpg if taking it easy at 45-55mph on highway.

The most rewarding therapy I've ever had!

I was in my car 3 hours a day, some times more. In bumper to bumper traffic, I was losing my mind in my boring Corolla. I was getting big time depressed, and I have an elderly father who has a hard time getting out of a car. I researched and decided if they could get me out of my lease, I would take the loss. Best decision ever! The only thing I didn't get that I wanted was a sunroof, but realized that the extra expense wasn't worth it for how little I would use it. Cars higher off ground so I can see better and get in and out better. I love the back up camera, won't get a car now without one. They showed me how you could pull the bottom of the trunk out to maximize space, not that I need that much. I really hated having a huge trunk, I like having the window at the back of the car so I feel like I have better sight thru the back. The other thing I must have is to be able to listen to my books when I'm stuck in traffic. And it has TWO chargers so I can charge my IPod and phone at the same time. If it came with a refrigerator and microwave, I may never leave. Acceleration isn't the greatest, but it gets the job done. I always have a problem with seat comfort no matter what car I drive. I think it's my long torso. The Soul has an adjustable seat that inflates. It took a while but I found the right adjustment. I've always put a seat cushion behind my back before, not now.

great little car

I went from a very well worn and well loved 2005 Rav4 to the Kia Soul Base with automatic. Its almost identical in interior volume and overall size even though it looks a lot different. Very comfortable on the interior with more passenger room front and back than the old Rav4, but you lose a fair amount of storage in the back in comparison. It sits slightly lower, but only an inch or two. Build quality was excellent along with fit and finish. No issues so far after a month. Love the upgraded electronics which even in the base model are much more than I was used to in my old car. Bluetooth works great, radio sounds great and works great. Interior controls are very similar to what I was used to and are easy to use though the radio is a bit "busy" with lots of buttons and it where you access all your system settings. Love the dials on the climate control since they kept it simple unlike too many cars nowadays with a plethora of buttons that you can't work by feel alone just to turn on the A/C or defrost. Love the steering wheel mounted controls for radio, cruise, and bluetooth/voice command. Very comfortable seats and ride. For what you pay, it seems like a great value for your dollar even if resale may suffer. I plan on putting on a lot of miles and getting my money's worth before I have to worry about resale/trade-in. If it lacks in any area it is power and mileage. Its acceptable, but not an acceleration demon by any measure. My old Rav4 had a lot of miles on it and was burning more fuel per mile, but would still had decent torque and acceleration (low end and high end) with its 2.0L and 4 speed auto. The 1.6L with 6 speed Kia does fine around town and cruising on level freeway, but strains when merging into traffic or in hilly country. Turning off Eco mode helps a little, but I think hurts your mileage more than it helps your acceleration. Mileage is not what you'd expect for such a light car and a 1.6L engine. Its about what my old Rav4 was getting when it was new, but that was 11 y/o technology on a larger motor and somewhat heavier car. Logic would say the Kia SHOULD be getting around 35 on the highway at least, but struggles to make 30 under the best conditions which to be fair is close to what the sticker predicted. Around town, it stays around 23 or so. Not great especially for a car its size, but as I said for the price you pay I'll sacrifice a little mileage. So far very happy with the car even if people do make fun of a guy in his 50's for driving a "cute" car. It does what I need it to do (puttering around town and 400 mile business trips a 2-3 times a month) and comfortably and for a heck of a price. No other cars by any manufacturer were anywhere near it that had the safety rating, reliability, or warranty of the Soul. Plus, buying a 2015 model in the fall when the 2016's were on the lot made for lots of incentives and the dealer was eager to make room on the lot. People can laugh if they want. I'm happy and that's what counts for me.

Fun

My grandfather always said, "if you don't go into debt you will never have anything." Which is true and false.... However, I went into debt to get this car. I had the Kia Forte before getting this vehicle. I loved my Forte but I needed to get off the ground.. It was terrible. When I purchased the Soul. O.My.Goodness best purchase ever. I do wish the storage in the back was little longer, for suitcases and such. But it works. It's more than I thought it would be.

Nice surprise

Note that the vehicle does not come with a spare tire unless you get it as an option. I was surprised at the quality of the vehicle. Nice tight doors, very little road noise, more interior room than I expected. Automatic transmission does seem to search a little bit at lower speeds. Great ride, ventilation system is nice. Instrumentation is exceptional, but takes some getting used to. All in all a great little SUV and I would recommend anyone in the market to take a look at it. Very good factory warranty

Love My Soul!!

I have a bad back and when I sat in a Soul and didn't feel like I was getting up off the floor when I got out of it, I was sold. It is fun to drive and you feel like you are in an SUV, minus the price and overwhelming size. It is really roomy and will fit 3 adults in the back seat comfortably. My mom has one too and she is tall so it is so much easier for her as well. I would even recommend it for mom's with kids. International Kia in Orland Park, IL took good care of me.

Don't lease the car. they hit you with charges even after you turn it in. my car was turned in, detailed, new tires and 7000 miles less then agreed. they just treat you like you are someone they can just take money from. the dealership was terrible. i leased the car at one dealership. they sold out and turned it in to another. service was terrible (auto express Kia in Erie, PA.) dealing with these people was simply terrible. they all try to scam you, every step of the way. the car is not bad, but Kia finance and the dealerships will never see my buisness again. beware of nice guy act when they are setting everything up. it's you that is getting set up!

I traded my 14 Kia Soul in on a Jeep Wrangler, I made money on the trade, but then regretted getting rid of it. So off I went to the dealership for another one. I picked up a 15 Soul Base 6 speed manual, Silver with 2 tone Silver/Black interior. Very nice combo. I was so thrilled with my 14 and equally with my 15. I noticed they did away with heated mirrors on the 15 base manual compared to the 14. I also noticed the tires were nosier on the 15, they were Kumhos. On my 14 and 15 I purchased factory foglight kits on the internet for 189.00 from Kan Motors and had them installed at a local bodyshop for 150.00 . I then checked all the local Kia dealers for pull-off wheels, I found a nice set of new Soul + 17 inch wheels and tires. The car became quiet like the 14 .These tires are the Nexens. I enjoy everything ,about this vehicle. Safety ratings are amazing. Gas mileage is great with the manual. Nice cargo capacity and room for occupants. Very nice features for a base model. I can get up to 42 mpg watching my driving habits.

This thing has a very smooth ride, a lot of leg room in the front and back, and for the size gets really good gas mileage. I commute to work and I average 28 miles to the gallon and that is 50 times better then my previous vehicle. It's affordable and has all of the features I was looking for in a good vehicle. I would suggest this car to anyone looking for a good comfortable ride, with affordable payments, and a great sound system!

Cool Little Ride!!

Drives easy, accelerates as needed, rated very safe, and enough so insurance premium went down, feels well constructed, low engine noise, when you close the doors it sounds tight and not tinny, mileage so far has been more than expected and right out of the dealership; radio sound good, electronics seem to be more than enough...what not to like?? So far nothing...just well pleased!!!

First car purchase I ever regretted in 30 years

This is not a bad vehicle for something inexpensive, I bought the plus model. But I find riding and driving in it, dull as dirt. Wish I would have waited for the jeep renegade or even the Honda HRV. I think I would have gotten a better value for the money. I'm actually considering trading it in at a considerable loss, about 5000.00 in my estimation, at only 3200 miles on the odometer. I would suggest people looking at this car, shop around a little better then I did !! Update::: 1/20/16 I looked to trade this vehicle 6 months ago , resale value on this vehicle is horrific. I am however trading this vehicle regardless of the loss this spring.

Improved interior appearances and better fabric. Scrape those away and actual performance issues become apparent relatively soon. Automatic transmission is quirky to the point that it displays the slow responsiveness ala CVT transmissions. Normal acceleration begets transmission hesitation and lost power when shifting from 2nd-3rd-4th. With vehicle ratings of 164HP and 151 lb.ft. torque, acceleration is surprisingly strained (mostly at highway speeds), suggesting numbers are inflated. Cruising on slightly undulating highways yields frequent trans shifts. Steering and braking are a bit vague. At highway speeds, wind noise becomes excessive, reported as normal but only on the driver's side. After two years of ownership, the car displays less and less soul. Noticeable cabin wind noise has drastically increased whenever driving above 40 MPH. Dashboard rattles have surfaced. Stereo sound quality has been surprisingly marginal in operation. Suspension grinding noises have become more pronounced. The car generally drives ok, but appears to be suffering from an overall lack of quality control and quality components. While appearances are good and options look good on paper, when it comes to actual driving and function of those components long-term (climate control, e.g., steering, suspension, handling, transmission), components display obvious weaknesses and are of generally lesser quality relative to their pricing.

From a ¾ ton Hemi to a Soul!

Time for a new rig for my bride.. I started looking at Sorrentos. Bought my wife the '16 Sorrento and was smitten. It didn't take long to find myself back on Kia's lot trying out the 'Soul'. The one that caught my eye. ...and not just because of mileage. I LOVE this car. 5 miles when I bought it and just passed 1,000. The sound system to the Nav, Bluetooth, heat/cooled seats and steering wheel (big deal in Alaska) not to mention the speed the car 'heats up'! The 'sport' steering, incredible stock sound and backup cam, LED lighting and pano sun/moonroof, lighted speakers and functional control from the steering wheel for everything A built in hard drive and SD stick input, what's NOT 2 Love!

2015 Soul 1.6 automatic=GREAT car!

Have had the 2015 Soul a few days now. I'm totally impressed. It has a shockingly spacious interior, great headroom, and stylish looks. The car has had no issues zipping down the highway even with its small 1.5, but 130 HP engine. I love the options that come standard in the Base model, including AC, Sirius XM, Bluetooth, heated mirrors, steering wheel volume/bluetooth controls, different driving modes (normal, comfort and sport) and cargo dividers under the back area. Mine is white with two-tone seats and it looks really sharp. For the money, I couldn't ask for more. Love it. It's now 09/2016. I've had my Soul for two years this month. I still love it. I've had zero problems or issues. I took it on a 17-hour road trip to the Smokies and then back again. It's roomy, great on gas, hauls kayaks, and is a great car.
