Great Car, Great Value, Great Warranty, Good Gas Mileage, Well Thought Out Vehicle. — Interior huge! Good acceleation, getting used to all disc braking. Only repair is that the engine light has come on twice because of sensor not denoting gas cap is tight. Appearance great---heads turn! Cost of ownership--insurance only increased $20 more than my 1999 Taurus! Gas mileage is as stated. Car is really fun to drive!

Pros

This car is stylish and sleek, love the exterior and interior look. It is roomy compare to most sedans and is higher off the ground which I like. I have the limited edition so it has all the upgrades. Gas mileage is great, I get 29/30 most of the time, and that's driving in the small town of Bend, It has gone through two winters without snow tires and does fine. I have not had any problems at all with this car. It has a high safety rating and 6 air bags.

Cons

It does have a blind spot...for all that this car says it is, it is best that you realize that it is a practical car, not an suv 4 wheel drive, but a wagon/hatchback front wheel drive-which sometimes can be misconstrued. I like this car very much.

Sporty,fun To Drive, Dependable Car — This car is a fun ride and great gas mileage, I like the 18 inch tires, that makes it seem bigger and more midsize. It has done well in 2 snowy winters already. Safety of this car is also a plus!

Pros

Very roomy for such a small car, with a versatile interior. Excellent gas milage.

Cons

Styling might not appeal to many drivers, and the ride can be harsh.

Fun Little Commuter Car For Short Trips, Especially With Gas Prices Going Up! — The Kia Soul is actually my wife's car, but I drive it a lot too. It's quirky looking, but not ugly as much as cute. It has a very truck like driving position, but is more car like than SUV. It handles very well and has a very tight turning radius, but it's ride is choppy and harsh on rough or uneven pavement. Performance is adequate but hardly sporty, but it does get excellent gas mileage.

Excellant All Around Vehicle — We took car from Denver Co. to Taos NM. It was a mix of highspeed interstate and two lane backroads. It had no problem keeping up with the 75 mph I 25 speed limit and still had plenty of power left to pass trucks on the hills. It was great on the mountain roads to Taos and backhome via Leadville Co. over several high mountain passes. The overall mileage was 32.71. We put on 900 miles in three days and it performed flawlessly. It was fun to drive and quite comfortable. The driving position is very good with good visibility and good handling. One feels very safe and secure driving the Soul. Its five door hatchback/wagon versatility is amaxing. It more than surpassed our expectations for a small vehicle.

If You're Practical And Want To Save Money, Buy The Kia Soul — The performance of the Kia Soul has been great. What I love about this car is that it has a high safety rating, good on gas, good IIHS rating, several standard features that other cars in it's class doesn't have, roomy interior, and a unique, sporty exterior. In addition, it comes with a very generous 10,0000 mile/10-year warranty and Kia offers free roadside assistance if anything should happen. I also save money on my car insurance with this vehicle because of is safety rating. In my opinion, manufacturers can't/don't build cars to last, else they would go out of business because no one would ever need a new car. I decided to invest in the Kia Soul because it was fun to drive, affordable, had low-gas mileage and came with a great warranty. Thus, lowering my overall cost of ownership until it's time to get a new car.

More Fun Than A Barrel Of Monkeys! — I only have it for two weeks but so far it has exceeded all of my expectations. It has so many gadgets , I still haven't figured them all out,(such as the bluetooth system) The other day it scared the crap out of me when it started talking as I was pulling out of a parking lot. The only negative is that the ride is a little choppy on the freeway, but I expected that as the car is somewhere between a luxury sedan and an SUV. Other than that I am very happy with my new KIA.

Pros

Fuel Economy is excellent!
Very Spacious with the seats folded down.
Great sound system.

Cons

With children there is very little room for more than two older and one baby.
Does not do very well in winter weather, even with stability control.

I Love This Car But It Has Its Downfalls — Fuel Economy is excellent. I drive this car from Branson to Springfield for work daily four to five days a week. I fill up on Monday and the gas lasts until the following Monday. For as small as it looks it hauls a lot! We bought a 60" screen TV and a wooden stand for it to fit on and both fit in the Soul with room to spare. The sound system is AWESOME! Many people have asked if the system was in the car when we bought it or if we had someone put it in for us, then we we tell them it was a factory system they do not believe us! If you have a family of more than 2 1/2 children there is no room for them to sit! We have four children and we can fit one older child on one side, one older child on the other side, and a car seat in the middle. That is the full extent of the space we have, leaving one child at home since there is no where for them to sit. If you live in an area where it rains then freezes or snows you are SOL if you need to go up even the smallest of hills. Where we live there are small hills and when it snows or gets icy the car refuses to move.

You Can Get With This, Or You Can Get With That! This Is Fun To Drive And You Can't Beat The Price! — Great handling and good response; not the speediest on the road but a 4-cyl with GREAT gas mileage. It has needed no repairs but has received regular, scheduled maintenance (oil changes, etc.). The interior is sporty with the lighted speakers and two tone dash. The Java paint was an upgrade (you won't see many Soul's with this color) and the moon roof is awesome. The hands- free blue tooth is easy and the Sirius rocks!
