Pretty good for a first new car!
By letzgostate on


2012 Kia Soul 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl 6M)


Got my 2012 base manual soul the first day they had them on the lot. I chose the manual base and love the 6-speed. The car is amazingly peppy. Since getting mine I have had to have a new rear axle put on the car (I had the swaying road problem too), a new gauge cluster installed, I have had a flat that was not fixable with the fix-a-flat system in the car, and I had a pebble nick the windshield, create a small pit, and quickly had a crack over a foot spread across the windshield, and I have had the battery die for no apparent reason. Aside from those problems, the car has been awesome! Take advantage of roadside assistance, I have 3x already and always quick and free! Oh, and 38 mpg mixed!

Best Features

Manual trans, gauge cluster, mileage, fun

Worst Features

Better windshield, put in a real spare, check the alignment before selling the cars! Already seems to be a problem.
