Love my Soul

Reviewed by Barry
October 28, 2014

I upgraded from a 2013 6 speed manual base Soul but I had a little help. Someone else liked my Soul so much that it disappeared from my driveway. I liked the Soul so much I had to replace it with another one. I got a 2015 base model with an automatic transmission. I looked around for a manual transmission but of the three dealers in my area, none had a Soul with a manual transmission. I don't know if they are rare, if it's early in the model year, of if it's just dealer's choice. I haven't gotten used to the automatic. At low speeds with low accelleration, it has a slight surge/sag effect as it changes gears - minus one star from performance. The base model does have a smaller engine so that may be part of it. Accessibility was one of my most important requirements for a car. I am 350 lb and have no problem getting in and out of this car and sitting comfortably. No climbing to get in or out. No sharp edges digging in to my thighs. No head rubbing against the ceiling. Way better than most cars. I only have about 150 miles on it but so far, gas mileage is very close to what is on the window sticker. On the hiway going home, I got 31 MPG and back and forth to work at 40-55 MPH with a few traffic lights and stop signs, I get about 29. The 2015 rides smoother and quieter than my old 2013 model. It feels like a larger, heavier car on the road. It also feels larger than the 3013 inside - and I had no complaints on either area of the 2013. I couldn't get red again as the base models now have a limited color selection - minus one star from external styling. To get anything other than black, white, grey, silver, brown, or alien, you have to get the "+" or "!" trim. Somehow, alien is still a base model color. I called it puke green at the dealership and the salesman laughed and said they recognize puke green as an alternate name for the color as quite a few customers call it that. One minor gripe. The entertainment system no longer has a CD player built in. The salesman said thumb drives with MP3 makes CD's obsolete so they have a USB port instead of a CD. My 2013 had both. No "convenience" rating so I can't minus one star on this one. Slightly more major gripe. There is no spare tire unless you buy it separately. They give you an electric air pump and a can of tire sealant - usless for anything larger than a nail. They brag about using the space for a spare as extra storage - minus 1 star for reliability since I can't find a better category.

Nice Car

Although I have not had the KIA Soul very long it has been exactly what I imagined it would be so far. Mileage is great, drivability is good. The car has so many operating systems that I have not learned how to use them all yet. But I am learning...

On my 'bucket' list...

Shopping for a car was a lot of work and time. My husband and I finally decided on the 2015 Kia Soul in Alien green. Both of us are in are 70's and all the extras made us just look and one another...will we figure out all these buttons and features?? Well we are slowly getting acquainted with our Soul and really love it. Very quiet startup, comfortable ride, love the backup camera and moon roof. I am as happy as can be and...the Kia Soul was on my 'bucket' list.

This car is so much more than it looks like. Very comfortable, handles well, has a lot of zip on the highway. Sales staff reviewed everything about the car before releasing it so no surprises.
