We purchased our Soul ! used from a dealer with 33,000 miles.
We bought this car because of the reviews in regards to gas mileage.
This Soul is terrible in regards to mpg.
I have written to Kia and I am waiting for a reply before I proceed further.
I drive 60 miles a day (highway) to work, set my cruise on 70 (posted speed limit) and the best gas mileage I have gotten is 25.9 mpg.
The advertised gas mileage is the main reason we bought our Soul.
While it is very fun to drive, the gas mileage and the exterior quality (lack of) will not keep us a Kia customer.
Paint chips very easily.
Very sad because this is a fun car to drive and is very roomy.
Sync (phone options)
Upholstery - hard to clean / keep clean
Paint quality - chips easily
