  • So Much Excitement to Behold! - 2014 Kia Soul
    By -

    I purchased my Kia Soul + on January 2nd of 2018. It replaced my 2000 Kia Sephia that I hated to part with, but it was time. I am so thrilled with the Soul! I didn't drive much before I purchased it but now I'm finding excuses to go places, just to get the feel of it. Getting used to the controls was a bit hard and I haven't set up my cell phone with it yet, nor have I figured out how to the Sirius system. I'll get there though. I'm a short person so getting in and out of it is still a bit hard but I know I'll get used to that also. It's such a dream to drive - so quiet and it goes around corners with ease plus it's easy to park, even though I'm sitting up higher than the Sephia. The seat controls are fantastic. I can even make the seat go higher as well as closer to the steering wheel. It has cruise control which I love and a trip monitor for the trips I plan to take now that I have a car I can trust. Lots of cargo area with a luggage net in back. If you are thinking about buying a Soul, don't hesitate!

    The handling in snow and slush is well below average. The Kia Soul is a comfortable commuter. It's great for short trips that don't require much luggage. Both the driver and passengers have plenty of leg and seat room. I owned the very same car, previously, in a color that I did not prefer. I loved my car well enough to buy the same year and model when I found one in Rockin' Red!!!

  • Dealers lie SO BAD! - 2014 Kia Soul
    By -

    We have a 2014 Soul. Been taking it in 3 years because one side of the rear was lower than the other. Told nothing wrong. Took it in last week because the key would not come out of the door. Was told the key, the gas cap, the rear struts, the rear springs, and the headlight connector are all"worn out" - on a 3-year old car! Paid $2500 for the only extended warranty offered, but it covers absolutely nothing. I would MEVER recommend anyone ever buy a Kia.

  • What a buy! - 2014 Kia Soul
    By -

    This is an awesome little economical car that more people should know about. Its very easy to get in and out of and you sit pretty high which is great for visibility as well as for entry and exit. The seats are supportive and comfortable, if not plush and overly cushioned. Its like a small SUV in a way. Its quiet and rides well and also handles well. Not like a highway cruiser or luxury car or sports car, but at that low price, you couldn't expect it too. No, its just an inexpensive little car that's big on room, build quality, reliability, value and safety. It could use just a little more cargo space and get a little better MPG. If the car has a flaw its a little noisy when accelerating from a start and also a little slow to get to speed when merging under hard acceleration. But when you get to highway speeds its actually pretty quiet and moves with ease. I drive up a hill every day and never have a problem with power. The base has everything I wanted feature wise, nothing too techy, just simple and easy to use. A remote rear latch release would be welcome, though. I've had it over a year now and no problems and its holding up fine.

  • Amazing ! - 2014 Kia Soul
    By -

    I was looking for a second car,to save miles on my 14 Scion Tc, I already had 11,000 miles in 6 mos. I saw a commercial for 2014 Souls for $10,900. from a local dealer. I ended up paying $11,300, because I did not qualify for the military discount. I did not even drive it ! The color is amazing, Latte Brown. I had owned one of the first 10 Soul sport models in 09, so I had an idea of what to expect. Boy was I in for a shock ! When I left the dealership I was speechless. The car was so quiet and it drove so nicely. The interior was so upscale, and the features shocked me. Nice stereo, Satellite radio, power heated mirrors, p.windows, p.locks,bluetooth streaming, adj. p.steering ,nice ride.

  • My First Kia - 2014 Kia Soul
    By -

    My first Kia, although I've driven my brother's Soul (a 2011, I believe) a few hundred miles. This one is a big improvement in ride quality and noise! It's peppy enough for normal driving and my first tank returned 26 mpg in city driving. I'm impressed with the number of features for the price (power locks, cruise, power windows, selectable steering control, Sirius, Bluetooth, etc.) on a base model. The one thing that I haven't figured out yet is how to get the headrest further back (I usually wear a brimmed hat), as the adjustment shown in the manual gives very limited movement. Overall, though, I'm very impressed!

  • Great value for the money! - 2014 Kia Soul
    By -

    I purchase a used 2014 Exclaim model; with all the extras. Test drove VW and a few others. It's a great value for the money! loaded with nice tech etc. Buy one at least a year old; it's worth it... RAS

  • The All New Soul Is Perhaps the Best Deal out there - 2014 Kia Soul
    By -

    Purchased in March, and now, with 7,000 current miles, checked MPG and it is over 31 with Mostly Safe Highway Mile Speeds around 60 MPH. The base with automatic price of 16,350 was low and this car has exceeded all expectations. Very quiet. Quiet engine. 3/4 the pricr of my 2014 Jeep Cherokee which is also nice but not as good a price. I am large and 6 feet tall. This car is roomy.

  • My Little Red Wagon - 2014 Kia Soul
    By -

    I am a senior and this vehicle is easy to get into and out of. You set up high for better view out which is good except for out the rear corners. The fairly large mirrors and backup camera minimize this problem. The initial quality was very good(fit and finish). Vehicle was driven on a 3k mile trip of country roads and mountains from Oklahoma to North Carolina and was comfortable and fun to drive,averaged 31.2 mpg with two people and loaded.(4k miles) Car seems to get the best mileage if you stay at 70mph or less. A little bouncy on rough roads but cruises nicely on the open road. Steering is tight and brakes are good,a little touchy until you get used to them. Overall great car
