Happy customer and happy wallet

I have had this vehicle for over a year and half, and I have had no issues with the car. The Kia Soul is a great car, especially for someone who is looking to purchase their first new vehicle. The car is fantastic for the price you pay. I have the base model, automatic, which has all the standard features, nothing special. The car drives smoothly. Brakes are a little sensitive at first, but as you get used to the vehicle, it's not so bad. The car doesn't sit too low to the ground, but it also isn't big and feels like your driving a tank. It's quite spacious inside and has a smaller trunk area, but the back seats lay down so it does provide more room if you need it. My biggest downside on the vehicle is that it doesn't come with a spare tire. However, on amazon, you can find a spare tire kit that comes with everything you may need for like $70-$100. Overall, I love the vehicle and thinks it's definitely a good buy.

Family car - accessible, comfortable, and smooth action!

Hard to replace transmission - took over 6 months to get the replacement to work correctly. Comfortable seats with adjustable headrests. Excellent heating and air conditioning. Heated seats and dual heating and air conditioning controls in the front seat. Separate heating and air conditioning controls in the middle and rear seats. Plenty of room in the cargo area - deep and available areas to hang grocery bag handles. Has great "pick up" on interstate. Easy to handle no matter the condition of roadways. Great vehicle for trips or for around town. Gas mileage is reasonable in town - better on interstate. Audio speakers are well balanced. Side rear doors open flat and can be opened with key fob - wonderful when have an arm load of cargo.

Kia souls may be plenty but they are not good!

The car is way too small in the trunk. I can't even put a suitcase or diaper bag in there since there is no depth. When you take off, the car sounds like you are breaking the sound barrier but you are only going 30 mph and it takes forever to get up to speed. I say a few "hail mary's" if I accidentally pull out in front of someone because you may get ran over. There is no cd player so you are almost coerced into paying for sirius. It should get better gas mileage for something that is basically the size of a go cart. I hate the car but can't trade it in because 6 months after buying it new it is half the value of a new car.I give it 2 instead of 1 stars because it does have good head room for the driver and a good warranty.
