Catastrophic Engine Failure

Engine failure at 69,000 miles. Plenty of documented evidence from other owners to support this claim. Please read about engine failure in the 2.0/2.4 Hyundai/Kia product line if you're a 2.0 Soul owner.

Brake problems

Do you think a 3 yr old vehicle should need 4 wheel brake pads and rotors replaced at less than 19000 miles??? I don’t but apparently Kia thinks this is normal. I purchased this car new thinking that Kia had overcome its reputation for poor quality. I have now learned the hard way that this is not true.

Great value and fun in a quirky way

I drove a brand new Mini Countryman All4 S - fully loaded - a courtesy vehicle for my Mini Cooper Convertible. Shortly after I test drove the Kia Soul and thought the Kia was equal in so many ways to a car that listed for almost double the price! The quality of the Kia is outstanding and if the reports of reliability are true, the anticipated repairs and headaches will be minimal. The passive/active safety features are amazing. Blind spot detection, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control are all first rate and easy to use. Instrumentation is clean and logical - easy to use and not intimidating. Apple Car Play is fabulous! The full front to back sunroof is a joy. Ride comfort is solid, incredibly quiet and road feel is perfect. LED lighting provides clarity better than I've ever experienced. Performance is adequate and in sport mode better than average. Gas mileage is a bit disappointing for a car of this size and the range could be better (small tank). Overall, this is a great value and a quirky look that's fun. Definitely a design you either love or hate.

Maxed out 2017 Soul +

Nice car. Decent acceleration with the 2.0, which doesnt consume oil. Panoramic sunroof, infinity audio, and heated/cooled seats are really nice for entry level car, especially when getting the options on a used car. Better fuel economy than expected, especially when driving 35-50 mph. Cons include noise at interstate speeds, ride a little rough on bumps, speakers could be fuller at bass end, and high depreciation rate. As an aside, I was unimpressed with a 2020 soul with turbo on test drive. Didn't like the auto trans. Also didn't like that power rating for the 2.0 engine dropped significantly for 2020. Would buy another Soul in future, if used, low miles, pre 2020, and in warranty. 10/22/2020 Update Still running strong. Had to replace two wheel sensors under warranty. Faulty sensor did once cause vehicle to slow to a crawl in a turn, which was alarming. Otherwise, am still happy.

had a 2012 soul and traded in for a 2017 model. Not many changes between the years, except 2017 does not come with a cd player standard. Still no spare tire. new car has the nitrogen filled tires. I like the car for the handling, and overall comfort. but its overpriced.
