2010 Kia Soul Wagon + 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

As soon as I saw this car, I wanted it. I love driving it. but interior is strange. Can't be cleaned. I opened the door in the rain and it stained the inside of the door. I've tried several products to clean it, but it comes back. Don't know what else to use. Interior also scratches really easy. At first, fuel was really good - about 320 miles to a full tank. But recently, it's gone down to about 250 miles or so to a full tank. This is not stop and go traffic either.At lower speeds, about 15-20 mph, car lurches when given gas. Does not like going slowly. Brakes are super sensitive. Bumps are hard. People say bluetooth is not clear. But I still love it!


Favorite Features

style, bluetooth, pretty comfortable.


Suggested Improvements

interior mars too easily, can't open the cubby door on the dashboard easily, better suspension, headlights seem too low. Don't illuminate high enough into the sides of the road. better gas mileage

2010 Kia Soul Wagon Sport 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I had set my heart on a CR-V and then happened to see this car which was sort of similar to it but for about $7 thousand less. I researched its specs then read all the reviews I could find on Edmunds.com & other websites then took it for a test drive. It came out with flying colors- compatible with the CR-V as far as safety, performance, reliability, warranty, fuel economy, the SUV-like seating,and the even better interior & exterior features than the CR-V. The only real difference was the 4X4 drive. I've had it for almost 3 weeks and love it. It rides a bit rough on hard roads because of the big 18" wheels and not-so-good suspension (as the Editors' reviews explained). otherwise, it's perfect for me


Favorite Features

High, good view of the road and easily reachable audio & phone controls on the steering wheel.


Suggested Improvements

Automatic seat belts when the doors are closed.

Review

The bluetooth is terrible--- every time you pass a new cell tower- it downloads your address book-- when you get in the car- the phone cannot be used until the address book gets downloaded. You also lose you phone calls when the cell tower transfers the bluetooth needs to be upgraded or replaced


Favorite Features

It is a fun car with plenty of room for its size.


Suggested Improvements

New bluetooth and better tires in snow area states

Review

Just traded in my cobalt for a Soul and I love every minute of driving it. It is a big small car. Looking at it from the outside you would never think there could be so much space. I have the audio upgrade and auto dimming rear view mirror I highly recommend both. It is everything you could want a car to be. If she treats me right I may be loyal to Kia for life. I get a lot of compliments on it. Get the ipod cable it's worth it.


Favorite Features

blue tooth, steering wheel audio controls, rear view dimming mirror, ipod jack, tons of room.


Suggested Improvements

haven't found one yet.

Review

Incredible value! If you're looking for a car in this category, this car is a must see. There are several other good cars that compete with the Soul sport but, when you factor in price, features, and warranty the Kia always comes out on top. Several months into ownership and not one problem at all. If money is not an issue then the Mini Clubman would be my 1st pick solely based on the vehicle itself. Honda and Toyota did not seem to have the "total" package for under $18k. Chevy HHR was same price but didn't like the way it drives nor the interior. My wife has had a Kia sedona for 5 yrs without any problems (buying a new one next week) so I am impressed with reliability.


Favorite Features

unique style; interior design


Suggested Improvements

Stronger engine; suspension needs to provide softer ride while maintaining already good cornering; more "feel" from the steering
