We love our Kia Soul it is a great little car!

We purchased our Kia used with low mileage. We were actually looking to purchase a small SUV and decided to test drive the Soul. We were so impressed that we bought it. The car looks small but it has a roomy interior. We have taken it on long trips and it is very comfortable and rides great. It sits high enough that makes it easy to get in and out of. The car drives and handles well. Gas mileage is good. The car has great pick up and keeps up on the interstate and has no trouble with the hills and mountains. No long after we bought it the engine light came on. Our mechanic said it was a sensor. Someone put gas in with the engine running. We highly recommend the car and will consider a second one when we're bready to trade our Mazda.

Best vehicle for the money.

It handles poorly in slippery or icy conditions because the brakes lock up. Some of the interior is cheaply made, such as the glove box, which broke within the first month of ownership. The tire-pressure indicator light on the dashboard sometimes lights up when there's nothing wrong with the tire pressure, but once it did alert me that I was getting a flat in time to get to the tire store. It is a reasonably comfortable car and even the basic model, which I bought, comes with all of the features I need. The price was what attracted me, because a comparable Honda would have cost almost twice as much. I do not believe you could find a better value. So far it is a very reliable vehicle that gets relatively good gas mileage.

2014 Kia Soul base: satisfied customer.

I have had no problems out of my vehicle in the 4 years I have owned it. The performance and gas mileage has been satisfactory, the reliability has been 100%, the comfort level is acceptable but there could be a few more design upgrade and conveniences that would heighten the comfort level. As far as features go, it is only the base model so it mostly just has the minimally expected features: power windows, ac/heat, manual seat settings. It does not have a CD player and only an AUX cord plugin, as well as a USB port for charging or playing Audio via that method. All in all, I am satisfied with my purchase and recommend the vehicle.
