It includes a button to slow the car down automatically when going around curves.

I love the mileage I get on this car as well as the fact that I can fill it up to a full tank from empty for only 20-25 dollars at the most. I love that it sits up higher than a car but not as high as a truck. I love how you can see just about every perspective of the vehicle’s outside without having to turn your neck and body too much. I do not like the fact that it has a pretty small trunk. It is hard to fit two kids and a stroller in this car, on top of groceries. So if you need to go to the grocery store make sure you do it after you get done with any sort of chore that would require a stroller.

My favorite little car I have ever had.

I love my Soul. I am 6'4" tall and 380#. I drive more than 100 miles each day with my commute. I am amazed at the room I have and how comfortable I am in such a relatively small car. I get close to 30 miles to the gallon on gas. The only issue I have had with this car, and I am pretty sure it is specific to my car, is that when it sets in the rain, it runs a little rough for a short while but it clears up quickly. Pretty sure water is getting somewhere it is not supposed to get.

I love how comfortable my car is and the features on the inside.

For my Kia Soul being considered a box car, it is quite roomy on the inside. Lots of head room and just space between you and the rest of your passengers. So many people are shocked when they get in the backseat and still have leg room. Another thing I love about this car is it is the perfect size to get out of small spaces but big enough that when I needed to move I laid my back seats down and could fit everything I needed in there.
