2011 Kia Soul + 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Bought this in Oct. 2011 now with 60,000 miles on it. No problem with reliability, but would not do it again. Seats stain easily interior scratches easily. Not enough space behind the rear seat. You cant even get 2 average suitcases to fit. Only 25 mpg, lost of road noise and engine noise. If you hit a rough road hold on because there is no telling what way you will go. Not good in rainy conditions either. The resale value is not good. Even Kia will not give more then $10,000 on trade in with 60,000 miles. Kia has moved up, but I fill the car is over priced for what you get. Bought for close to $18,000 but got a $14,000 car. For the price there are better quality cars to pick from.

Best Features

Leg room front and back.

Worst Features

Handling, cup holders, storage, power, no rear arm rest or cup holder (the door ones only good for small bottles). Staining and scratches on interior.
