I purchased this vehicle new in late 2011 and have been very pleased.
I commuted from southern WV to northern IN weekly for 9 months logging 1K miles per week.
The car has been great in snow, mountains and all sorts of driving.
I have been extremely happy and average about 28.9 miles per gallon for the types of driving that I do.
I researched the Soul for quite sometime and was impressed by the low initial cost, the fuel mileage and the safety ratings.
The Soul has lived up to all of these ratings and I am extremely happy with the car
Automatic headlights, power door locks, Bluetooth, controls on the steering wheel and most items I desired came as standard on the vehicle.
Visibility in the rear quarter panels is somewhat limited.
