If there is one thing I would add to a con list would be no place for a spare tire, don't like that. I love this car so much. So roomy inside and you feel like your sitting up high. Has all the get up and go one could ask for. I would recommend the Kia soul to anyone looking for an economical but stylish car.
I purchased KIA soul 2016 and paid $16,300; I received a voucher for $14,395; But when I got to the dealer I ended up paying $2k more. Also I found at home that they charged tax on dealer preparation which was $690 and other licence services which should not have been done. The car is fine, but these additions do bother me.
I bought a 2013 Soul plus, put 63,000 miles on it, gave it to my daughter. then I bought a 2016 designer plus. The 2013 has been a great car no problems, seats are a little uncomfortable for long trips, I live in southwest Idaho and she does great in bad weather. Overall I give it a ten for ease of getting in and out with bad knees, good MPG, I have had no problems with this car. the 2016 does seem to have better seats and and a few more good features. I think this car is a great value and a fun to drive car!
My wife really liked the looks of the car which is a definite plus. On taking a test drive I knew it was what I was looking for, It is extremely easy to get in and out, with the small engine the transmission seems to shift a lot. it is maintaining a 29 mpg which is great in my book. I sets beside a 5 leder awd automatic that gets 14.5 mpg. My previous car was a 232 V6 with a 6 speed stick. while it was fun to drive and averaged about 23 mpg using high test gas , which is 50 cents a gallon more than regular, a roaster which was my dream car and I drove it 9 years, a record for me. As Of now I am well pleased with the performance, handling and overall quality of my KIA.
Got the ! Because wanted lumbar support. The seats felt great for a test drive. However driving for 30 minutes headrest pushes your head too far forward and down, regardless of adjustments. Serious neck and upper back pain
