Reviews For Kia Soul
Kia Soul, the best ride on the road.
My vehicle the Kia Soul is a pleasure to drive. It is quiet and rolls along smoothly even on bumpy roads. The Kia accelerates very fast when needed and brakes on a dime. I have had many cars over the years and can honestly say the Kia has been the most pleasurable experience of them all. The Kia has a beautiful dashboard with all the amenities such as telephone, radio, series radio and all the necessary buttons on the tilting steering wheel. I also has a button for overdrive and then the Kia really takes off. The Kia is very economical on gas so much so that my daughter will leave her Jeep in driveway and borrow the Kia. The seats are comfortable and the cargo space could be a bit bigger but the back seats fold down so that enlarges the space. I was able to haul a 55 inch TV in the cargo space without putting the seats down plus my walker was back there too. Yes, I love my Kia Soul and will get the Kia Soul eve when I take this one back to the dealer when my lease is up.
If You Can't Afford Luxury, Still Feel As If You've Obtained It
I was replacing my 2007 Saturn VUE, so I wanted something I hoped would last as long as it had. Since I'm the only one who drives or uses the vehicle, there is plenty of room, especially in the front seat area since I spend all my time there. The seating is comfortable; not cramped, so that it has the feeling of a larger, more luxurious vehicle. The car accelerates the way I want; can hit 50-60 in a few seconds so I can enter quickly enter traffic. The car is low maintenance so far and doesn't eat up gasoline. I love the heated seats; the air conditioning is always at a good level. I like my modern electronics such as Bluetooth. So far, I don't DISLIKE anything, but the car was bought new and isn't that old.
Mood rings and music are a wonderful feature.
This is the third Kia Soul that I have owned and I love the vehicle. Have had no issues or problems with any of my Kia vehicles. I have found them to be very dependable cars and economical to operate. Gas mileage is very good and they are comfortable even on longer road trips. You can select from a wide range of options to suit your driving and your pocketbook. I especially like the fact that the back seats fold down and give you a large area to load with all types of cargo. And lets not forget all of the cool colors for the Kia Soul. No other car company can match the bold colors of Kia. I highly recommend Kia and hope that you give them a try soon, also.
I find the Soul to be dependable.
Small car but plenty of people space. Back seat has good legroom. however not much cargo space. I find it handles well even on wet roads. It's comfortable during long drives. I drove from GA to nm no issues. I feel safe driving in heavy rain the tires grip the road pretty well. I do not like I have to remember every time I start to change drive mode to sport to get better gas mileage, in city 27-30 mpg where as eco only 24 mpg. I do not like that all the doors unlock when you put the car in park that is a safety issue for me. I drive a lot 30, 000 miles in 14 months. I find my Soul to be dependable.
Kia Soul: A nice hatchback with an automatic/convertible transmission
I like this car, but I am upset that it does not have an "overdrive" setting. I had a 2013 model previously, and the automatic prindle had an "O/D" button that prevented the car from going into the highest gear for safety in certain situations. On my new car, instead of an "O/D" button, the level will shift to the left and become a manual transmission shifter. It is dangerous to turn this mode on while driving, and then assume that the car in still in automatic, because you will then proceed to ride the car in the wrong gear.
Don't be fooled by a potential unappealing box-like shape - a Kia soul is a reliable, fun, spacious ride!
I got my Kia Soul when my older Honda Civic died on me unexpectedly. It was really an upgrade for me. It's reliable and has three different speed settings (Eco, Regular, Sport) which I really appreciate and love. I also enjoy the medium size of the car, it's a lot more room than my Civic. I'm a little bummed that I didn't get the Kia Soul Plus because I wish my Kia had a touch screen and backup camera. But overall it's a perfect car for a 24 year old!
Kia Soul has a special place in my Soul.
The Kia Soul is an amazing car, both economically and performance wise. It has terrific mileage - 26-30 miles per gallon. The interior is sleek and spacious for both the front and back. The trunk of the car is incredibly spacious for regular use such as for groceries. The car is up to date with bluetooth connectivity and charging banks. The driving is smooth sailing and an overall good car. No problems with it whatsoever.
Fiona the Kia (she’s green).
I absolutely love my car. It rides well and has plenty of room for my husband and my nephews to ride comfortably. We have moved twice while I have had this car and I was amazed at how much room we had in this what looks like to be small car! My Kia is also really good on gas. I was hesitant on getting a new car before I got this one because I loved my old one so much. My Kia was a great buy.
Excellent investment: Kia Soul.
My car is great on gas mileage and handles very well. I can park it pretty much anywhere as the exterior size is quite compact. Despite its small size, the cabin area is rather spacious; the rear seats come down to accommodate large items from the rear hatch. I have been on a few 1300 mile trips with it and the passenger exclaimed how comfortable it was even though it was such a long trip.
My Kia Soul and what a potential buyer should know.
Shiny black, compact, comfortable and fun to drive. Good on gas mileage. It appears to be a much smaller car than it really is. Kia did a good job designing the Soul to allow for more room especially in the trunk. With the rear seats down there's a large capacity for groceries and many other items. This car is easy to drive and includes a phone system too which is really nice! I love it!
