2013 Kia Soul ! 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


If you haven't bought one of these yet when on your test drive make sure you take it out on the interstate then roll the back windows down about halfway. The noise and vibration you will have is un bearable. You can't even talk to anyone not even the passenger. In addition roll down the drivers window about two inches while the back windows are down. It will shake so violently you will think it will shatter. I have spoken to many KIA dealers and they say this is a definite design flaw on several of their vehicles and cannot be resolved. They have contacted KIA engineering and they suggest keeping the windows rolled up at high speeds. Yeah right. Had I know this I would have NEVER bought one

Most cars have this. Silly post. Google window buffeting.

This happens to most cars to some degree. Apparently, this affects Kia Soul more than comparable cars of its class. Thanks for the detailed review. Very informative.
