Kia soul review from a small town college student with said outlook on life.

2011 Kia Soul Base

My Kia Soul is a really good little car for me. It gets good gas mileage which is the first and foremost priority, it's 2019 and I can fill my car up for about $20 to get the whole tank full and it's efficient. it's an efficient little car and I love that about it. It's also quiet, which is important, and small but not squashed-feeling which is nice. I hate how other cars that are small you have to climb out of them to get out like little compact pods or something but the Kia Soul is not like that, and that's what I like about it. It's air conditioner works well, always a must, it's speaker system works well, which is always fun, I like that I can lay the seats down in the back and get a lot more trunk space to do whatever I want with. I have moved myself twice now in this car and it works really well. I also like how easily the spare tire is tucked away under the trunk, and the neat little trunk space for things like jumper cables and a jack and everything you need in there. It is very well designed and easy to live the car life in, and I like my Kia soul a lot.

- Carolyn D

It's much bigger on the inside than it looks! It's very comfortable and a relatively smooth ride, considering its price point and size.

2011 Kia Soul

I love how much space there is in my Kia Soul. Many people are surprised at how large it is inside. This is very helpful when driving for Uber and Lyft. Also very spacious with the seats down. I can fit a lot more as we are in process of moving than my wife can in her Chevy Trax. It's also very useful that the seats go down in 2 parts, one smaller than the other. I was able to fit 2 riders and a lot of luggage once, so being able to put down the large part was helpful, while still leaving the smaller portion up for a passenger. The only thing I don't like about it is the way it handles in snow and ice. I would say my Chevy Cavalier handled much better in snow and ice, even several inches of snow, than the Soul. My wife would like it and even buy one for herself if it had lumbar support. I prefer the straight seat all the way up because I am short (5-1) and those curved seats are designed for people at least 5-5, if not taller. It gets great mileage.

- Kara K

This car is really small so really easy to maneuver and drive around anywhere.

2011 Kia Soul Base

This car is really comfortable and reliable. The mileage on the gas is really great. It also really works well in fitting into parking stalls and parallel parking. It's a really small car so it is easy to drive and maneuver around. Although it is small on the outside it is surprisingly big on the inside. Whenever we shop for groceries we can fit many groceries in the car. The stereo also works really well so driving around listening to music is great. The only problem is that the tire suspension is kind of bumpy. But other than that this is an amazing car and fun to drive around. I haven't had maintenance problems that often and I love how well the car performs. Great car and highly recommended by me.

- Jacob M

The Kia Soul is a reliable car, it is good on gas, comfortable to drive.

2011 Kia Soul Base

The Kia Soul is the best car I have ever owned. I have the very first model that came out, and I would gladly go buy the newer model. It is very reliable and has never let me stranded anywhere. I use it a lot to travel and it's great on mileage. It's my everyday car from home to school and work. A full tank will last me the whole week, and as a college student this is very convenient. The only problem I have ever had with this car is with the a/c. When I took it to the mechanic it was difficult to repair because most of the parts for this specific model are not sold anymore, not even in the dealership. I did end up repairing it but it took a while using other parts that are not for my car.

- Samara C

Stylish City Living with a Kia Soul

2011 Kia Soul

Having driven a family member's Kia Soul greatly influenced my decision to buy one for myself. The Kia Soul is compact and easy to maneuver with parking in small spaces being a breeze but the interior is well designed to be roomy and comfortable for both driver and passengers. There is ample storage in the back with easy access with a rear hatchback door. The back seats fold easily and quickly to offer even greater room for transporting large items. I'm very pleased with the mpg and even opted for a five speed transmission to ensure that I get the best possible gas mileage. My car is stylish, dependable, economic and perfect for city living.

- Peggy A

The best car to go around town.

2011 Kia Soul

The Kia Soul is truly an amazing car. Even in the older models, you have the advantage of a small car that can fit anywhere, without suffering from a small, cramped interior. It is easy to clean, and can even transport a large dog if you are creative. The gas mileage is good, especially if your vehicle is primarily used to travel around town. However, the car is a little uneasy at speeds upwards of 65mph. It fairs fine without horrible issues, but it certainly does not have an easy time reaching those speeds. The seats afford the driver and passages a comfortable posture, and the car is incredible comfortable.

- Emily S

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

2011 Kia Soul

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.

- Katie S

I love my Kia soul! It is been a great car. So happy I bought it!

2011 Kia Soul +

I love this car! It is roomy, even in the back seat. My nephew who is 6'4' was amazed. The back seat lays down making for plenty of cargo space. It is been great for loading totes for craft shows. It is been reliable. Only had to do regular maintenance so far, like oil changes. I like the USB port and the phone port. Controls on the steering wheel are convenient. The only problem is it is a lighter vehicle so it does not do so well in the snow and ice. But I go slow and I am more cautious and I have had no problem.

- Amy F

My favorite little car I have ever had.

2011 Kia Soul

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.

- Jon C

Tall hatchback perfect for young city commuters.

2011 Kia Soul +

Transmission does shift awkwardly sometimes in traffic. Only small maintenance has been needed. Ride is stiff at times on the highway, but is great for city driving. This model has all of the basic features car buyers look for nowadays: Bluetooth, hands free calling, satellite radio etc. Has a decent amount of interior room, especially when folding the back seat down. I wouldn't recommend for a family, but for single/young couples in an urban environment, it's a perfect commuter

- Andrew C

This is the best car and I will likely get another when I am ready for a new one.

2011 Kia Soul Base

My car has never needed anything other than routine maintenance until this year when the exhaust pipe rusted. This only happened because I hardly used the vehicle for about a year. It is the base, manual transmission model and I have found it to be very comfortable and reliable. Although it appears small from the outside, it is surprisingly spacious on the inside: comfortable for a man over 6 ft tall to sit in the back seat and large enough to move a loveseat sofa.

- Robyn C

Kia soul one of the best cars I've owned

2011 Kia Soul Base

I have had my Soul for about 2 years. It runs great, has never broken down or needed any repairs. I have basic features and basic model. I really like when I play music, the lights in my door around the speaker light up to the color of your choosing in the settings. As the bass plays the color goes with the pattern all the way around. If I could change something about the car, it would be to make automatic locking doors after you start driving like most cars have

- Brandy M

Great and Reliable Car Choice

2011 Kia Soul Base

My Kia has been extremely reliable. I have driven many road trips in it and I have never had any issues. Additionally, the gas mileage is amazing especially compared to other cars. Although the Kia may seem like it is a small car, it can actually fit much more than one would think. I know from experience that the back seat is roomy because I can fit two booster seats and a baby seat in the back. Over all, I am very pleased with the performance of my Kia.

- Rachel B

A little too small if you have more than one child.

2011 Kia Soul Base

My Kia soul is a great car. The gas mileage is not too high and it is cheap to fill up. I bought this vehicle 2 months before having my youngest. I currently have a 8 year old and 3 year old so we are kind of growing out of it. The trunk space is not that great for strollers or if you are wanting to pack for a trip. We took it to the beach and it was a little difficult packing it up for four people. But it is a very dependable little car.

- Andrea H

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

2011 Kia Soul

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.

- Michaela S

Kia Soul- cute, cozy, reliable

2011 Kia Soul Base

The only problem I have with my car is the trunk space is quite small. It's not a big deal if you lay the back seat down but the trunk itself is pretty small. I haven't had any performance issues with my car. I'm not the best at remembering to get the oil changed and the car still runs great. It has been reliable for the past 7 years. It doesn't have Bluetooth connection, which is inconvenient but not a deal breaker.

- Brenda R

Not just a Kia, but a special one

2011 Kia Soul Base

Only thing I don't like about my car is that the brakes and acceleration is really sensitive. I love the size and the gas mileage and the overall style of it fits me very well! I wish the color selection was a bit more vast but it's not the biggest concern I had. The repair aspect of it is pretty decent. I've had my car for a year and have some stuff I have to take care of but it took awhile for it to get there

- Michaela A

I enjoy the hooks for you car seat so you don't have to use a seat belt.

2011 Kia Soul

My Kia has decent trunk space for a small car. And you can haul a good amount if you put the seats down in the back. I also enjoy the hooks that allow you to clip your car seat in. I hate using seat belts for car seats. I do wish it had arm rest but the sound system is good in it. My biggest issue is it has no really resale value but I plan on keeping it till it breaks. So it won't be an issue.

- Jordan E

This is a great car for parents.

2011 Kia Soul

I really love this car for a ton of reasons. It has so much head room that it does not feel crowded. I have used this car to move twice and it carried so much! It easily fits two car seats and the hooks are a breeze to find. Even the hatchback area is larger than it looks. My only complaint would be that I wish it got better gas mileage, but that is still better than gas usage in an SUV.

- Stephanie S

The best safe compact car.

2011 Kia Soul Base

I love the size of the soul. It is large enough on the inside that it feels like you are in an SUV, but small enough on the outside that you can squeeze into tight parking spots. I feel very safe and secure in this car--I was in a fender bender and there was very minimal damage. It is a good sturdy, reliable car. However, if you want a lot of trunk space, this is not the car for you.

- Angela G

Great all-around vehicle!

2011 Kia Soul Base

I love my Kia soul! It greats great gas mileage and is roomy enough for 4 adults and their luggage to go on a road trip. I can also fit 8 ft 2x4s down the center inside and a 10 ft pipe sticking out the rear window passengers window. I like that the Bluetooth came standard, I use it daily. The only problem I have really had is with the paint bubbling on the rear by the tail lights.

- Hillary C

don't judge a car by the outside.

2011 Kia Soul

Very reliable, Souls look small from the outside but once you're in it you realize there is much more room inside than expected. Gas isn't that great though, I normally just put $10 in the tank and I have to put more in it in a day or two. No mechanical problems so far. Features like turning lights that light up and change colors or blink to the beat to music is really cool.

- Dominic A

It is safe, reliable and comfortable.

2011 Kia Soul

The 2011 Kia soul is a great and reliable car. Through accidents and 170, 000 miles of driving, this car has never failed. No horrible breakdowns or major issues. With proper oil changes and other easy renewals, my Kia soul has been the most reliable and safe car I have driven. It is comfortable, safe and is the best car for a teens first car. Hands down, a great investment.

- Kaitlyn S

2011 Kia Soul Base

This was my first car and it has been perfect for a commuter vehicle. It started as bringing back and forth to school and now I drive it back and for to work. The amenities are well designed and the it handles nicely. It drives smoothly and is the perfect size for parallel parking in the busy city. Over all the car has aged well, only needing minor repair pretty recently.

- Sarah G

Both Comfortable and Spacious

2011 Kia Soul Base

We bought it used and as such, there are a few problems that aren't really the fault of the car, but overall it's a joy to use. We go on trips occasionally and the amount of storage space we can get with the backseat down is absolutely phenomenal. You sit up rather high when driving, compared to a lot of cars and that helps with visibility more than I'd expect as well.

- Nikki E

Exceptional, very comfortable. And the sound was great as well!

2011 Kia Soul Sport

My 2011 Kia soul was exceptional. I loved it, I was convenient, comfortable and reliable. If you are the type of person that loves to save money on gas this is for you. It is perfect for small family. The only thing I didn't like was probably my back windows, instead of rolling all the way down, it stopped midway. But other than that car was awesome! Would recommend.

- Diana O

It is a manual transmission car.

2011 Kia Soul

I like that my car is a manual. Not many people sell or even buy manuals anymore. It was a great price. The only thing that was wrong is that I had it less than a month and I had to change the radiator fan and assembly. It cost me a lot of money. It also shakes in idle when I have my air conditioning on. Other than that it drives great and has great gas mileage.

- Ashley T

It's doesn't have many blind spots. Has lots of airbags.

2011 Kia Soul Base

It does not have a real trunk. The trunk can't even hold up to 20 pounds without the tire cover falling and bending. I wish it had a solid trunk for travel and shopping. It's hard to clip car seats in because the clips are hard to reach in the seat. The seats are pretty comfortable. The car gets hot and takes awhile to cool off. It has no air vents in back seat.

- Morgan H

Reliable car just needs attention to detail

2011 Kia Soul Base

She is a good car. However, she is really loud when it comes to driving. Also, she needs filled up a lot-the gas mileage is not the best. Reliable car though. The car has a problem with wind, I am unsure of how you would word that. When driving in severe thunderstorms or very windy areas the car is pushed around a lot. Car battery also needs changed frequently.

- Sam S

I'd buy another Kia Soul in a heartbeat.

2011 Kia Soul

I love my Kia Soul 2011. It was the first vehicle I purchased on my ow and was a great buy! I bought it with low mileage and a great Carfax report. I have driven it all over the united states and Canada. It gets fantastic gas mileage and has yet to falter on me after 5 years of driving it. If I bought another vehicle right now, it would be another Kia Soul.

- Morgan M

Basic review for Kia soul

2011 Kia Soul Base

My Kia Soul is very comfortable and snazzy, I like the heated seats and the sunroof. I also enjoy the lights on the speakers. There is a large amount of trunk space. The windshield wipers are not super effective but that's okay most of the time. Averages around 19 miles per gallon, but not terrible considering it is a very boxy car. I like this car a lot.

- Sam S

It is a cool little car that looks like it's from outer space.

2011 Kia Soul

Thankfully I have had no problems with my car since I purchased it. I get it serviced regularly and I think that helps. I have had a flat tire in the car but that is the only challenge with the car. I am also prepared if the car is ever in an auto accident with adequate insurance coverage. I am also really on alert for any potential brake or a/c issues.

- Kerry J

The car is a great money saving car and gets great mileage. I would recommend.

2011 Kia Soul

The Kia Soul is reasonable priced has great gas mileage and is very roomy. It can hold 5 passengers and still have leg room. The hatch is large enough for strollers and groceries. The seats fold down if by some reason you need more space. The front seats recline all the way to the back seat so it is laying flat and more comfortable for long car trips.

- Christmas L

Kia has a light, breezy Soul. Feels like a good, honest, low maintenance car.

2011 Kia Soul

Standard transmission, and the battery charges while driving! Roomy without being a giant nuisance on the road. Cloth seats are easy to vacuum and dash is easy to clean. CD drive, AUX plug, and Bluetooth capable for music options. Back seats flip down for extra trunk space. Fits 4 people comfortably, but a 5th can sit in the middle of the backseat.

- Isabella A

It looks small on the outside but for passengers it is actually quite roomy!

2011 Kia Soul

I love my Kia Soul. It gets great gas mileage, the way it drives is smooth, and the look of it has some personality to it and is different from most cars. I have had mine since 2011(bought it new) and have not had to do anything to it to fix it besides just regular maintenance. The parts are durable and I have not ever had any problems with it.

- Kelli R

Hit or Miss, depending on the elements.

2011 Kia Soul Sport

It has done well for traveling but for routine around town it seems to work harder than it should. It's extremely light and doesn't do well with high winds and icy roads. Even with routine maintenance it has developed engine issues. I do still like my car but it has caused me about as much grief as it has relief for a reliable vehicle.

- Samantha B

Pros and cons of a Kia Soul.

2011 Kia Soul

My car is very reliable, it is just a little bit out of date as far as technology inside the vehicle. I think it should have GPS. Other than that it is a gas saver as well. Great for small families and overall it is a nice reliable vehicle. Runs great it is not a slow car it does pick up speed and any repairs are not that expensive.

- Brandy P

Good basic car to meet a small families needs.

2011 Kia Soul Sport

It is a great car but small trunk space. Not good for a family of 3 or more with space. The electronic keys broke easily and the sound system is just ok. The seats are comfortable and the car drives well on mountains and around town. I wish the trunk was a little longer or seats lay down better so I could store more things in it.

- Molly S

The blind spots make it hard to see when you are backing up or changing lanes.

2011 Kia Soul

I love the interior and it has a fantastic sound system. I mostly drive on highways and so my gas mileage is 30mpg which I love. It is easy to lower the seats and has a lot of storage. However there are some pretty bad blind spots and I do not love the look of the exterior. Overall though I have been very happy with this car.

- Ava G

Kia Soul, a convenient, compact car you can live in

2011 Kia Soul !

The Kia Soul seems small.. and it is! Compact and a great friend when looking for street parking... but inside is very spacious. The seats go down for more room options. It rides well, even in the winter months. It's a convenient car. Easy to learn in, great for new drivers. Also, the seat can be adjusted for shorter people.

- Isis T

The ins and outs of the 2011 Kia soul.

2011 Kia Soul Base

It is the second year made of soul. I have had no problems with it: it drives and rides nice. I have problem getting in and out of the car sits to low. The Kia is just right. It gets good gas mileage. It comes fully equipped. I didn't need to ask for extras. I have had the car going on 8 years and I am very glad I brought it.

- Vincent I

Kia Soul’s excellent build, but poor gas mileage.

2011 Kia Soul

The Kia Soul is an extremely dependable, affordable and withstands the test of time. The car is very well built, but may hurt you on gas mileage. Highway driving is excellent, at about 29 miles to the gallon, but when it comes to side roads or driving through neighborhoods, you'll be lucky if you get 22 miles to the gallon.

- Bradley M

very roomy Great miles per gallon Easy to drive Easy to travel with

2011 Kia Soul Base

We have had our Kia for about 4 years now . I can honestly say for the model we have it is roomy and we can even go to costco with this car. The mile per gallon is great and we have not had any work on the car, minus a new battery which comes with the Texas heat. this car has enough room for 5 adults to fit comfortably .

- Sydney M

My 2011 Burnt Orange colored Kia Soul.

2011 Kia Soul +

I have not had any problems with my car besides the gas cap not fitting properly. I went to the Kia dealership and got a replacement gas cap for real cheap. The car rides smoothly and all the features make the ride comfortable. The car is low to the ground but not too low. It makes it easier to get in and out of.

- Eden R

The most important thing about my car is that it is comfortable and easy to drive.

2011 Kia Soul

I like that it is compact and economical to run. It has enough room for me to transport stuff. I also like the chair-style seating. The only thing I dislike is that the area between the back side windows and the rear hatch window is wide and blocks some of my view when trying to back out of a parking space.

- Melody M

Crank up the Music & Let the hamsters out!!

2011 Kia Soul

I love my car!! The problem is the dealer, Coast to Coast, is doing warranty work on my vehicle and they are really doing a poor job!! I do know their is some safety concerns about this model catching on fire but Kia won't recall them voluntarily yet?? I sincerely hope not this car is so much fun to drive!!!!

- Kevin A

The Kia Soul. Vibrant and reliable.

2011 Kia Soul

I have a 2011 Kia Soul that is reliable and gets me from point A to point B. However, it does not have a back up cam, or a screen period, or a lot of other upgrades other cars have that are 2011. But it is a pretty decent vehicle. It is small but durable and drives smooth when there is nothing wrong with it.

- Janice H

They made me pay 22 percent interest because it was my first car.

2011 Kia Soul

I bought my car when I was 20 years old because my dad told me it was a good deal. Little did I know I was going to end up having to do 22% gap interest so I am now paying more than what I bought my car for. I paid on it for a year and he told me he would pay the rest off but never did and my car got repoed.

- Alexis F

The cost of maintaining the Soul is very low. There haven't been any issues that have been costly.

2011 Kia Soul

I love our Kia Soul. Its extremely comfortable to ride in. I have mobility issues and the Soul makes it easy to get in and out of the vehicle. There haven't been any maintenance problems to take care of outside of the routine stuff, like brake pads and oil changes. Overall, it's a great car for the value.

- amanda l

Great little car small but efficient.

2011 Kia Soul

Love how fuel efficient it is however I have low profile tires so when its cold out the brakes can get icy making the car shake. It also makes the tires expensive to replace. For a little car it has a lot of legroom but not a lot of storage. It's hard to find the clips for the car seats to attach to.

- Olivia Y

This car is fun, cheap to run, and has all the fun gadgets for a reasonable price

2011 Kia Soul

I like it because I got a great deal, and it's red. It has been. Low maintenance reliable car that is also fun to drive. I also just completely paid it off this month. There is only one thing that drives me nuts and that is the panel between the rear window and the side window creates a huge blind spot.

- Kristen B

It's very loud to drive. I'm not sure if it's the tires, I don't think it's the bearings.

2011 Kia Soul

It's newer to me, it's previously owned and has some paint/interior flaws. Speakers and antenna are junky and don't perform well. The headrests are hard to see around and uncomfortable. It's loud (tires?). It's a fun vehicle overall, though and I got a great deal on it. I'd like a newer model someday.

- kristin m

Small, easy to fit places, reliable.

2011 Kia Soul

Gets flat tires, over high payment, with my car seat in the back and makes passengers seat uncomfortable to sit in. Not enough trunk space or storage space. The breaks in this car have went our way more than my previous car. The low tire pressure does not reset itself and the button is hard to find.

- Sabrina T

Good commuter car, great on gas

2011 Kia Soul +

Leg room is difficult for taller drivers after a while driving. Small cargo area, very little leg room in the back. The car has decent power, but very slow to accelerate with A/C on. Headlights were dim too, so upgraded to LED. Sound system is sub-par, and overhead microphone does not work.

- Shawn B

They are incredibly easy to adapt to and personalize so they feel like your car.

2011 Kia Soul

As someone who had owned two Kia souls now, I love the consistent fuel efficiency as well as the magnificent heating/air conditioning system. I also love that they're small but tall so you don't feel like you are trying to fit into a clown car or taking up a significant amount of space on the road.

- Kirsten K

Great car overall! I would definitely recommend to everyone! Go buy one today!

2011 Kia Soul Base

Very reliable!! I love driving it everywhere! Great on gas! It's small but very roomy! I once fit 7 people in is so that's great! When on long car trips we always take my car and it saves so much money! I would recommend a Kia Soul to everyone I know! So if you want a reliable car buy a Kia Soul!

You can fit 3 carseats in the backseat! Seats 5 actual adults.

2011 Kia Soul

We have a KIA SOUL, which we decided to get when I was pregnant because a friend had one and we were impressed with how well it held all the baby things. It's surprisingly spacious, reasonably zippy and has good gas mileage. I don't really dislike anything about the car, it's been really solid.

Kia soul ed. 1 cons and pros. Good engine but bad interior design.

2011 Kia Soul +

Engine is fine with regular maintenance but the structure design of the dashboard is bad quality. It melted from the outside heat and sun, sticky goo chemical that traps dust. Then the structural design of the back of the car especially the right back that blocks the blind spot during driving.

- Beckie Y

Kia Soul everyone should own one

2011 Kia Soul Base

To me it is just a vehicle that I can get around in like go to the grocery store or the doctor's office. Nothing out of the ordinary to report on. It gives me no issues, I have had no major problems with it since I purchased it. I take it in for regular maintenance and it still runs like new.

Kia Soul.. An economical workhorse.

2011 Kia Soul

My Soul has been a workhorse. I have hauled furniture and building supplies as well as kids and sports equipment in it. The car is comfortable as long as you are not over 6 feet tall. With over a hundred thousand miles my Kia Soul has become one of the most economical cars I have ever owned.

- Kevin S

I've owned nine cars. The Kia Soul is the best by far.

2011 Kia Soul Sport

I have been buying this car for 2 years now. I love everything about it except the trunk space. It's very small and makes it difficult to travel with a family. I plan on buying another Kia Soul when this one is paid off. I've owned nine cars in my lifetime. This one has been the best by far.

- Jacqueline C

Pretty reliable early on and decent warranty service.

2011 Kia Soul

My vehicle was very reliable for about the first five years or so that we owned it. We recently started experiencing some engine trouble however. It took several weeks to repair, but fortunately it was covered under warranty and we were given a loaner car to use while ours was unavailable.

- Charles O

Kia owners are the smartest people, because they know what's great!

2011 Kia Soul

My Kia soul has been so reliable. I have never had to take it to the shop. It has great pick up speed. Plenty of room for passengers & cargo space. Fits easily in parking spaces. Only complaint is road noise, especially on the highway. My plans are to get a newer model in the near future.


My Kia Soul is an interesting and fun car to drive. I love the mood lights.

2011 Kia Soul

I love the beatz speakers. The car is flexible for loading and carrying items. The average mpg is not that high 18. 5. 22 mpg on highway. I love the small size for parking. My family is fascinated with my car. I was told that car is so ugly that it is cute. The maintenance is affordable.

- Carol H

My review for used 2011 Kia Soul plus.

2011 Kia Soul

No major issues as of yet with vehicle, performance has been solid and car is still good on gas. The vehicle is used mainly for highway driving so not to much wear and tear overall. Interior has held up well despite two children. The car has been pretty easy to maintain up to this point.

- Marque B

Zippy little 2011 Kia Soul.

2011 Kia Soul

This car runs hot and has had overheating issues that the dealer has not been able to solve. Comfortable car with good gas mileage. About 35 miles a gallon. Roomier than it looks. I can fit three passengers. One upfront and two in the back. The back seat flips down so you can haul a lot.

- Anna K

I love the Bluetooth setting. Really makes things supper convenient.

2011 Kia Soul

The front door got jammed after owning it a short while. Might be a factory malfunction. Other than that, I love the car! It is have been very reliable. It is very practical and has a lot of storage space. Perfect for any family. Would definitely recommend to any friend or family member.

- Alexandra M

My personal opinion regard my Kia Soul.

2011 Kia Soul

It is a reliable compact car. I enjoy it so much easy to park in tight spaces. I like driving manual cars this Kia Soul is perfect for me. I like to do it manual tune up for better performance. I bought this car as a back up plan since my old car broke down. This was a great investment.

- Leticia L

Love my Kia-Get yours today!

2011 Kia Soul !

Rides well, comfortable, roomy, and decent gas mileage. It's fun and sporty. I love the lights around the speakers that are adjustable and can flash to the beat of the music. CD works well and the speaker system is not bad. My only wish is that I could have gotten the Alien green color.

- Vicki L

Love the lights that come on in the car when the music plays.

2011 Kia Soul

This car is great on performance and reliability. The comfort is also a plus and has really nice package features. The lights at night are a great amount to see but not enough to blind someone. Also, the room in the back is very spacious, more than I originally thought for the Kia Soul.

- Haley H

11 Kia Soul is the perfect car.

2011 Kia Soul

For having this car for this long. I have not had as many problems as I thought I would. I even drove across the country. Twice. Routine maintenance is expected with any car. I did have to replace the ignition coil a couple of years ago but that still wasn't a big deal. At least for me.

- Ricky L

I like the ECO style it helps a lot on gas.

2011 Kia Soul Sport

No problems! The car is one of my favorites I have ever owned. It runs great and gets great mileage. I have two small children that fit nicely in the back. Car is small but feels big on the inside. If you're looking for a good car and you have a family this may just be the car for you!

- Ashlee P

Kia Soul flaws, pluses and thoughts on driving it.

2011 Kia Soul

My radio went out, no radio, CD, mp3, or Bluetooth. Very expensive to repair. Dealer want 100. 00 to investigate the problem. The car does not have good cup holders, too small. I like the car well enough except for those things. The air and heat are good, easy to drive and economical.

- Donna P

Love and Recommend the Kia Soul!

2011 Kia Soul !

I have had my Kia Soul for approximately 5 years and I love it! Great reliability, easy driving, low maintenance, and good gas mileage! It has almost two 140,000 miles and I have had no major issues or repairs! My next car will be another Kia Soul! I would highly recommend this car!

- Heather G

Souls are great cars for in town and around town driving.

2011 Kia Soul

The Soul is actually quite roomy on the inside ( I am a biggish guy) and has a lot of pep while not using a lot of gas. It is easy to maintain and is well worth the money. The only problem I have run into war with getting new tires. No one ever seems to have the correct size in stick.

- Shannon T

Small but durable and versatile car

2011 Kia Soul Base

Recently it has started stalling whenever we try to turn it on or fall under a certain speed, although it has been taken to car shops for fixing they haven't been able to completely stop/fix the problem. Other than that, it has held up rather well through continuous and extended use.

- Mariana R

Great gas mileage. This car is perfect for a long commute.

2011 Kia Soul

The Kia Soul has great gas usage. For a small compact car, it does not feel small on the inside a all, it is really spacious! I would highly recommend the car for anyone wanting something bigger than your standard small car, but is cute and has great gas mileage. Great commuter car!

- Quincy L

The mileage is absolutely fantastic.

2011 Kia Soul

Feels like driving a golf cart (little slow when accelerating). The mileage is absolutely great, I barely spend money on gas, which is a plus. Car is fairly robust and has not had any issues so far. Sound system is actually fairly decent the bass is pretty powerful for factory make.

- Spencer D

My Kia Soul is an amazing vehicle and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

2011 Kia Soul Sport

I have not had any problems with my vehicle! I absolutely love it and my wife loves it even more. It is very easy to drive and it glides basically when going down interstates and highways! I would definitely highly recommend a Kia Soul to anybody! It even fits me my wife and 3 kids!

- Austin K

It has been a really good car and has met my needs.

2011 Kia Soul

I love my car. It is small but roomy. I am able to transport most things I purchase. I don't like that it didn't come with keyless entry. It's a standard transmission, which I like, but obviously you can't have a remote starter or cruise control, which I would love to have both of.

- Lynnetta C

It has great gas mileage and it a safe and reliable car to get to and from work/school.

2011 Kia Soul

I bbn love my car. It is the perfect size for me and gets really good gas mileage. The maintenance is also really low which I like. Plus it is super cute and fits my style and personality perfectly. The only thing I would change would be the color. I want a blue car, mine is green.

- Bethany M

Reliable but not the height of luxury

2011 Kia Soul Base

My Kia Soul is very reliable. It doesn't shut down often, nor does it experience many problems. I didn't rate it a five however, because the seats are uncomfortable and not suitable for long distance driving. Also, the Bluetooth function is not as easy to use as more current models

- Grace R

Great on gas good size comes with extra features a well built car.

2011 Kia Soul

It's a great car built strong great gas mileage and bigger on the inside than you would think. Seats are comfortable plenty of room in back seats also has a little storage in the way back big enough for suitcases or when going grocery shopping. Over all a great gas saving vehicle.

- Keith L

Engine light problems and vehicle emissions issues.

2011 Kia Soul

Of late, constantly has a check engine light for a “vehicle emissions” I have had the valves cleaned and it keeps reoccurring. The gas will not fill efficiently so I have to hand pump at a very slow pace to get it fueled. And yes, I have gotten this check out and “fixed”.

- Alyssa W

New models really look good. The style has changed and looks modern.

2011 Kia Soul

Up to date I have had no problems. Replaced the original battery last year. Regular oil changes. It is great on gas. I drove 1200 miles spending $60. 00, the only negative is the comfort for nonstop driving. Perfect car for those who are wanting a nice vehicle for a decent price.

- Charles J

My life in my little car!

2011 Kia Soul +

My car is small not really fit for a big family. It is great on gas I fill up with about 20 bucks. Does not have a trunk just a hatchback so not much room for storage. The car runs smooth not many problems within the 3 treats that I've had it. I would recommend the car to others.

- Julie W

Fuel efficiency is great especially if you put it in eco mode.

2011 Kia Soul

I love the soul. It is excellent on gas mileage. Mine is a no frills kinda version, but I know it will always start and get me to where I am going. Radio is surprisingly loud. Horn could be better. Ac is freezing. Someone hit my Kia in a parking lot and dent just popped back out.

- Suzanne L

It is a reliable car with great features, but it is also a little expensive for what you could get for a comparable price.

2011 Kia Soul

I like the exterior design because it's very unique, but also dislike its aerodynamic properties. I like the reliability of the engine but find it a little underpowered. I really like the interior styling and general look of the car. I also really enjoy the factory radio system.

- Michael G

I wish the windows were automated and the speaker system was stronger.

2011 Kia Soul

Kia soul is really reliable, hardly has issues, general upkeep is simple, but low gas mileage. I wish it carried more gas instead of frequent fill ups. I think it drives well and it will last me another five years. Its comfortable for tall passengers and steering is manageable.

- Bridget H

Kia Soul is safe and reliable.

2011 Kia Soul

Have owned for 4 years now and haven't had any maintenance issues. I love its handling and cargo capacity. Great on gas. Comfortable. Great for long distance driving. Reliable. Great stereo package and internal light system. Would recommend for ease of travel and reliability.

- April B

Thankful for my little toaster car!

2011 Kia Soul

I bought my Kia Soul four years ago. It gets great gas mileage especially on longer trips. It has quite a bit of room for a smaller car. The only mechanical problem I have had was the ignition coil which I replaced myself. My only complaint is that the ride is a little rough.

- Mary C

Great economic, gas efficient vehicle.

2011 Kia Soul

I bought my Soul brand new in 2011. The gas mileage is incredible. There is a lot of room in the hatchback. Besides routine maintenance, I have not had any costly wear and tear problems with it. The price is so reasonable and even the base model has many convenient features.

- Erica D

My used Kia. Gas gauge issues.

2011 Kia Soul !

My Kia has been great since we got it. The only issue has been the gas gauge. It says you still have 40 miles before you need gas but it runs out of gas. We've been careful to not let the gas get low. So far that has been the only problem. Other than that it's been great.

- Maria J

Quality vehicle. Highly recommend!

2011 Kia Soul !

Great car. Smooth & comfortable ride. I drive everywhere! Great on gas but has a slow pick up while driving. The car is very spacious. I've used my car for many trips and travel. I can fit almost anything and everything. I have this vehicle in 5 speed manual transmission.

- Luke G

Compact, perfect size, great on gas, sunroof!

2011 Kia Soul Sport

Uses eco-fuel, which I'm guessing helps me save on gas. Perfect size for my needs. Hatchback. Rear seats fold down of you need the room. Love the sunroof. Smooth and comfortable driving. And, has changing colored lights that sync with the music. Very cool feature.

- Leslie A

My 2000 Kia Soul. Manual transmission.

2011 Kia Soul

My car has been great! Reliable, great on gas, plenty of headroom for tall people, my husband is 6'2 and has plenty of room. It is compact, easy to maneuver but also has enough space for suitcases for travel. I absolutely love my car, no plans to get anything different.

- Rebecca L

I absolutely love my Kia Soul!

2011 Kia Soul Base

I absolutely love my Kia Soul! It drives well in all sorts of weather, rain, snow, ice. The gas mileage is good. It came with a 5 year warranty., which was fantastic. It's comfortable and a great driving car. It's roomy inside and small enough to parallel park anywhere.

- Stacie S

Kia soul is a quality vehicle.

2011 Kia Soul +

My soul is a very smooth ride. Very reliable. Its has Bluetooth and power windows. There is also an auxiliary and USB hook up. I wouldn't be afraid to drive it across the country. Handles very well. Has a lot of power for a 4 cylinder. Fits my whole family comfortably.

- Natasha B

My Kia my way on the highway.

2011 Kia Soul

My Kia Soul handles really well not top heavy. Great gas mileage avg. 30 mpg. Real roomy inside and I am 6'2" with plenty of room. Not many mechanical issues just usual maintenance. Really eye catching since the commercial of the hamsters. I like the color alien green.

- Christopher L

Super easy to handle, less blind spots than most bigger cars.

2011 Kia Soul

I have had the car for over a year now. So far it has not given me any trouble, I have driven far distances and never had any issues. It is great on gas and easy to handle. It is small and most definitely efficient. It has great space on the inside, even in the trunk.
