Great little car, roomy and affordable. Love my Kia Soul.

2017 Kia Soul Base

Love the gas mileage, it's roomy for a small car. The issues I have had is the tires. Within the first 1000 miles I had to replace a tire from a blow out. Since they do not give you a spare tire, only the kit with fix a flat and the pump. I had to have the car towed to the dealer and get a new tire. I had another blow out around 25,000 miles. Also, if your tire light comes on, you need to take it to the dealer to get nitrous in the tires instead of regular air. One time while driving in the rain, the entire car filled up with fog with the defrosters on. It was very scary, I was getting onto a highway and couldn't see anything. I opened all the windows and drove right to the dealership. One of the lines clogged. Other than that, I absolutely love my car. Just wish it came with a spare tire.

You couldn't pry me out of this with a crowbar

2017 Kia Soul base

I purchased this as a commuter car for two primary reasons. First, the funk factor. Secondly it has enough space for a guy my size. Plenty of head room, no 'A' pillars in the way getting in and out, and the seats fit like they were made to order. The mileage is much higher than expected with the average around 35, although I've pushed it as high as 42. The six speed manual transmission operates so smoothly I rarely use the clutch except when starting out. The 1600 has plenty of power and it can handle itself on the highway without even breathing hard. Kia has a hit here and I plan to keep it as long as I can still get parts.

- Dan Hansen

Quality and greatness packaged into one

2017 Kia Soul Base

The vehicle is comfortable even in the base model. There is plenty of room for travel with my friends and the accompanying luggage, and the everyday travel with my 70 pound puppy. The seats clean easily which is important due to having a hunting/water dog. The only problem in the vehicle that I have come across has nothing to do with the manufacture, and everything to do with the fact that my mechanic during the last oil change overfilled the oil in the engine. The car was quality enough that all damage was able to be repaired.

- Elizabeth M

Drives great, comfortable and have plans to keep for 10 years.

2017 Kia Soul Base

Besides the standard engine level, I have eco and sports levels. This gives you extra rpm when needed or lower when traveling on flat straight road. It is very comfortable and has lots of room to haul items. Great audio system with XM radio option. All controls are within easy reach. Love my ability to connect my iPhone via Bluetooth through my audio system. The car drive nice and gets 24-29 mpg. I have to get oil changed at Kia or at least buy a special oil filter from Kia. The warranty will be invalid if I do not.

- Sandra B

Great for adventurous outdoor lovers!

2017 Kia Soul Base

I love my car! It drives smoothly and easily in town and on the highway. I chose this care specifically because the clearance in enough to take it on and access any hiking trail. The interior is nice to look at and it is sturdy, holding its own against dogs that are quite rambunctious. The seats are very comfortable, even on long, cross country road trips! I love that my phone can hook up via Bluetooth and I can listen to music and have directions all hands free. The gas mileage is good as well.

- Hannah R

Great price, drives well, with great safety features.

2017 Kia Soul Base

My Kia has never had a problem. Performance is great, although it does not have as much 'get up and go' as my other vehicle did, it is quite sufficient. It rides well, plenty of head and leg room in front seat and my passengers in the rear seat have never complained. I never expected to like this car as much as I do, this is my second one, and I will be getting another when this lease is up. The price is right, the warranty is great. Oh, and it has great safety features as well.

- Kathleen H

My vehicle is named Susie and has more legroom than you would expect

2017 Kia Soul Base

Overall I love my Kia Soul. I have never had major issues other than popping two tires, but that was mostly my fault. It has great gas mileage and is really comfortable for most people. I get a few complaints that back passengers feel curves more than they would like and there is some road noise. Kia Souls set at a great height to where you are not squatting to get in or struggling to get out. I have a base model so no crazy fancy feature but nice handsfree and Bluetooth options.

- Rebekah L

Soul: Safest car on the road

2017 Kia Soul Base

I was in a pretty bad car accident in my Kia soul in which a woman plowed into the side of my car hitting my head on. While the car had a lot of damage done to it I walked away basically unhurt. I can completely say that the frame that the soul is built with saved my life. I have gotten another Kia Soul when I decided to get a new car because this car is one of the safest on the road. It saved my life and made me a lifelong customer.

- Devin F

The Kia soul is awesome!!

2017 Kia Soul Base

It is a really good car for the most part. I bought it in the first place because I was having trouble getting in and out of my previous car. The soul is the perfect height for a shorter woman to just get into and not have to sit almost on the ground to do so. The only thing I want to change is the way it rides. If the shocks would give a little bit or it had nicer shocks then the car would be absolutely amazing.

- Andrea W

Kia Soul is roomy and comfortable

2017 Kia Soul Base

What I like about my Kia Soul. It sits higher than a normal car. It's comfortable. It's very roomy. It has a sport mode and an eco mode. The lights are very bright. I sometimes get flashed by other drivers because they think I have my brights on. I don't like that part. I worry about momentarily blinding other drivers. I like that the steering wheel has radio controls. It's an overall good car.

- Beth G

You Gotta Have Soul Ease of entry for an older crowd limited by arthritis etc.

2017 Kia Soul Base

love this car for the most part. It's easy to get in and out of for us older folks. Visibility for the driver is good. It's easy to drive and gets good gas mileage. It is a tad on the noisy side and I don't love driving it in the snow, but I could put on winter tires. I also miss a CD player but I'm able to use one on the auxiliary system. Lease almost up. Will probably get another

- Janet B

It runs quietly and sufficiently.

2017 Kia Soul Base

This car runs beautifully and is comfortable. The sound system is great as a base model. I feel safe and the car is very roomy for a family. Can also be great to take your furry friend to the park or the beach. The base model comes with an eco drive mode, sport and also normal. It is great to be able to switch to normal for longer road trips, and the eco for everyday work travel.

- Bryan S

The Soul is a fun little car

2017 Kia Soul Base

We love the Soul. It is a compact vehicle but very roomy inside. It is sporty and fun to drive. It's comfortable and has everything we need in a car. We added all weather mats and seat covers to keep the car in great condition. We have a 6 year old who is still in a car seat and she has plenty of room in the back. Our passengers always say they have plenty of room too.

- Angela J

To be perfect, it needs back seat air flow!

2017 Kia Soul Base

So far I do not have many complaints about my car. This was the first car I purchased and it has been amazing. It is pretty much just the basics inside, but the only thing I wish I could change is the lack of air vents in the back seat. In the summer my kids are sweating and in the winter they can't get warm enough. Other than that I absolutely love it.

- Sam L

You want a car with soul? Get a Kia Soul :)

2017 Kia Soul Base

I think this car was the perfect fit for me. It was affordable and easy to access as an initial purchase. The Kia dealers provide great resources and options for the buyer. The car is comfortable, large, smooth riding and enjoyable. One of the best things is the sound system and the room inside. Definitely a comfortable fit for all five seats inside.

- Jon V

2017 Kia Soul is Worth Your Money

2017 Kia Soul Base

I have owned my 2017 Kia Soul for about a year and a half at this time. So far, I have no issues with anything on the vehicle. The car is driven on a 45 minute commute daily and has suffered no issues. The gas mileage at full gets you 300 or so miles, maybe more. You can utilize eco mode or sports mode. No issues whatsoever. Highly recommend!

- Phillip W

The sound system is Excellent! Crispy and clear and loud!

2017 Kia Soul Base

Absolutely love this car. I had been wanting a Kia Soul for years and finally in 2017 had an opportunity to own one. It is super cute, handles really well, great in gas and responsive. Better than similar category cars I.e. Nissan Cube. It's roomy inside - both front and back seat and with the fold down rear seats, lots is cargo space.

- Jennifer B

Very cheap and affordable great vehicles for anyone's purpose in life.

2017 Kia Soul Base

The frame is very stylish. The fuel efficiency is great and the maintenance on it is simple and easy. I expect this to be a very long lasting car for my wife and I as long as I keep up with the maintenance I can see this being a long term care. To put it simply this is a great vehicle for anyone on the market. Very cost effective as well

- Daniel M

The Kia soul: it is a joy to my soul.

2017 Kia Soul Base

I absolutely love the way the Kia soul handles! It is roomy and gets great gas mileage. It has power when you need it and I like the fact I can change the drive mode from eco to normal to sport depending on where I am and what kind of driving I am doing. The interior features are just as great. Everything is close within reach.

- Tammy B

Love the space it has,my thru my rearview, I have a full view when backing up

2017 Kia Soul Base

I love my Soul, I feel very safe while driving it, and it has a great amount of space. I have never had any problems with it, and I just feel it's the perfect size. Not to big, but big enough if I need to move a piece of furniture.. ect... if I put my back seats down, I know I can fit most things an SUV would be able to fit.

- Jordan K

Love the Kia soul. So worth the money.

2017 Kia Soul Base

I have no complaints about the Kia soul, it is very roomy and I love it. The Kia soul gets good gas mileage. It is awesome because the back seats are able to lay down flat once you remove the backseat headrest. I only have the base model but to me it's just as great as the Kia souls that have more bells and whistles.

- Cathy A

Bluetooth allows me to play my music and charge my phone at the same time.

2017 Kia Soul Base

My car gets really good gas mileage. I don't typically need to drive far but a full tank can usually last me at least 3 weeks. It has Bluetooth which turns out to be really helpful once you have it(I didn't in my old car) and it has a USB port. It also has a rear view camera which makes parallel parking much easier.

- Jenna A

Small car has large potential

2017 Kia Soul Base

The Kia Soul is a lot of car in a deceptively small package. It's got a lot of space for family, for travel, for grocery shopping, or any sort of need you have. It's incredibly comfortable and one of the smoother drives I've experienced. It has required very little maintenance. I really like my little green Soul.

- Casey D

Reliability is the keyword

2017 Kia Soul Base

The Kia is very economical and versatile. It has proven to be exceptionally reliable and is comfortable to drive. Gas mileage is great. Through the warranty is one of the best in the business; I have never had to use it for anything. All around, it is the second Soul I have purchased with no complaints

- Charles W

I love my Kia Soul! Can't wait to see the new 2020!

2017 Kia Soul Base

This car is so comfortable to drive. Looks are deceiving... small looking but not small at all. Inside feels like a full size car. Put the back seats down and you can transport most anything! Even the basic model has all the gadgets you need! This is my 2nd Kia Soul! I'll never drive another brand of car!

- Cookie M

The pros and cons about having a Kia Soul

2017 Kia Soul Base

Small, yet spacious. Smooth handling, has pretty good gas mileage. Doesn't have too many problems, so far. I like the features that come standard with the car, although they could be a little more advanced. I don't like that the vehicle doesn't have a touch screen, that's something I would like to have.

- Betty J

The Kia Soul EV is a popular, funky hatchback loaded with personality

2017 Kia Soul Base

Yes, the Kia Soul is a good vehicle, whether you prefer to think of it as a compact car, a hatchback, or a subcompact SUV. The Soul stands out for its generous passenger and cargo space (more in line with a small crossover than a small car), comfortable interior, and lengthy available features list.

- Wallace B

I appreciate the space and the finesse of the vehicle.

2017 Kia Soul Base

I really enjoy the car. At first I was uninterested, but it was giving to me and now I would recommend it. Its agile and can move fast, while being a family car. It's a great car for having dates and just relaxed. Also, it allows me to be creative with customizing the car, do to the built.

- Josh Z

Cute reliable everyday bug car.

2017 Kia Soul Base

The car overall is a good day to day car to get from work to home, school, groceries etc. it's been reliable since I first bought it. I just wish the car had more horsepower so I can go up big hills on trips, but besides that I love my car. Bits cute and a good size for me. Overall a reliable car.

- Elizabeth V

you get what you pay for.

2017 Kia Soul Base

the CVT and 4 cyl engine make it really sluggish. It's very front heavy so braking needs to start early. It has a lot of room inside. there's no CD player only radio and satellite. Plenty of legroom and safety features. Turning radius is good not great and the hatch doesn't open with the key fob

- michelle C

It is an amazing car that has great and comfortable features.

2017 Kia Soul Base

It is very comfortable, drives smoothly. The color is also amazing. I have had no problems so far with the vehicle itself. It is a pretty new car that I recently just got. The features are easy and comfortable for anyone to use. I suggest this car for anyone who is trying to purchase any car.

- Casey L

Great car with only minor complaints

2017 Kia Soul Base

I love that there are three different drive modes- Regular, Eco and Sport. Helps save gas! I love the size of the car. Great for parking in the city. The main thing I don't like is that it doesn't have a spare tire. The seats in the back lie down but I wish they flattened out a little more.

- Erin N

Kia Soul - highly recommended by me and the dog!

2017 Kia Soul Base

I love this car! I have a pretty far commute for work and it's great on gas mileage while being fun to drive. The dog fits comfortably for road trips. People are always surprised at how roomy it is inside. For being the base model, it doesn't feel basic, it's got some nice upgrades to it.

- Elena C

Awesome and affordable car

2017 Kia Soul Base

Very reliable and comfortable. Great sound system and has plenty of plugs for various electronic devices. Very easy to clean and maintain. Has far more storage capacity than it looks like. There is storage beneath the floorboard in the back area and the seats fold down. Love my car!

- Alice G

The Kia Soul is definitely a keeper. Spacious, sleek. I love it.

2017 Kia Soul Base

I love my car. It rides really smooth. They look smaller from the outside than they really are. It is quite roomie. It's great on gas. The only thing I don't care for is that it came without a CD player. But it does have Bluetooth capabilities as well as a place for an aux cord.

- Ashley B

Kia Soul: A great little SUV that's a pleasure to drive.

2017 Kia Soul Base

I've had my car about two years and so far so good. I have not had any issues with it whatsoever and I love driving it. The seats are super comfortable. Also, I love that it's has three different drive modes and that the back seat folds down flat to transport oversized items.

- Lisa C

Kia soul, reliable and comfortable

2017 Kia Soul Base

My Kia soul has been very reliable I bought the base model to keep the price low. Basic features electric windows, radio, manual seats, cruise control. It is comfortable to drive. Gas mileage is ok ,about 32-34 mph. If I decide to replace it I would get an upgraded model.

- Candy G

Kia is good on gas and runs forever

2017 Kia Soul Base

Amazing on gas, tank will hold 31 miles on highway. The car runs forever, have had not one issue with car. Very compact and fit everywhere. Super easy to drive and has more room then someone would think. Love this car, also has a great sound system and a nice Bluetooth.

- Jennifer C

Drive a Kia soul it is comfortable, reliable and affordable.

2017 Kia Soul Base

I really love my Kia soul because it does not give me any problems. It is the right fit for me and it is very reliable vehicle. It really makes me feel very comfortable driving it. I feel really special driving the Kia soul. The Kia soul is a very affordable automobile.

- Rose P

Kia Soul- excellent and affordable!

2017 Kia Soul Base

Absolutely love my Kia Soul! Super roomy and comfy, handles like a champion. The only downside is that the trunk is fairly small, but the back seats fold down so you can still get a lot in there. A really affordable but excellent car. I would recommend this to anyone.

- Amanda G

Take a ride on the wild side in my Kia with Soul

2017 Kia Soul Base

I love my Kia Soul it is reliable and plenty of room. Easy to get to the air filter to change. Easy to park. Gets great gas mileage! It has four doors which makes it easy to get in and out of when you have passengers. It also has room in the back end for storage

- Kathy O

I love my Kia soul and it's amazing backup camera!

2017 Kia Soul Base

I love how it speeds up so quick. The ride is very smooth and the look is sharp. It's steering is very accurate and it's seats are so soft. It has a very nice back up camera and the option for satellite radio. The stereo system is high quality and a very big sound

- Eli T

Great mileage, spacious, fun to drive.

2017 Kia Soul Base

A lot more storage inside than it looks. Base model still comes with a lot of features (cruise control, Bluetooth, power windows). Eco mode is great for gas mileage and manual mode is fun if you miss driving a stick shift but want the convenience of automatic.

- Katie J

Great base model vehicle for anyone

2017 Kia Soul Base

I wish there was a button to lock/unlock on my key and that I could unlock the door on the passenger side. The car has gotten me to anywhere I need to go without any trouble. Even survived a deer and still drove. Great vehicle. Drives smooth and turns great.

- Jessica T

My inner Soul experience.

2017 Kia Soul Base

Great on gas mileage with plenty of room for adults to sit in the back seat and the fold down seats in the back to carry larger cargo. The backup camera is great and the built in Sirius radio is a great feature. It's small, a little whip and fun to drive.

- Angela L

Kia soul is affordable, comfortable, little repair and roomy enough.

2017 Kia Soul Base

The Kia Soul is great on gas, smooth driving, needs little repair, roomy trunk area and is very comfortable to sit in. The pickup is a bit slow, but does the job OK. The car is small, but roomy enough for the passengers and carrying packages and groceries.
