Everything about my vehicle is amazing!

My vehicle is literally the best thing in the world! My car is so comfortable to sit in! It's also very roomy. I am a small person but my friends that are bigger than me also say it's really roomy. I went from a 1993 car to a 2010 car and I absolutely love that its soo high tech. I haven't had any problems with my car since I get it a year ago. (knock on wood)! I am not very fond with my trunk because it's so small but that doesn't really concern me right now because i don't usually buy groceries but it would be nice if it was a little bigger. I think my Kia Soul is perfect for me because its small and so am i!

2010 Kia Soul, over 100k miles and still going strong, it is a great car.

My Kia Soul has been a great little family and commute car. It is big enough and comfortable enough for my teenage kids and I to take some great weekend road trips. It handles very well and has been a great car for the cost. My only complaint at all is the amount of road noise. The road noise is pretty bad unless your streets are very smooth. I was able to fix the noise by installing aftermarket noise dampening materials. We have put 100k miles on our Soul since we have had it and other than normal services we have had no issues. Honestly it is a great, fun little car.

The best and worst of Kia Soul.

I love my Kia Soul. I bought a 2010 in 2014 and the first problem I had with it was in 2017. I have had to replace the axle and ball joint on the driver's side and 2 sensors have gone bad recently and I have to replace them. Yes, expensive problems, but for it is age, I do not think it is unexpected for things to start going wrong. There is so much more room in this car than there appears to be by looking at the outside of it. With putting the back seats down, I have hauled a lot of things. The seats are comfortable and adjust to many different positions.
