I am a fanatic for funky, odd-shaped, quirky little cars. I adore the Mini, I adore the Veloster, I adore the Soul.

2010 Kia Soul

Trim: 4U Burner
by soul4uburner on 10-22-2012
Great car to drive
I have driven my Kia Soul 4U Burner for two years now and I love driving it every day. The ride at times can be a bit harsh over rough roads with the 18inch wheels and sport suspension but overall it's a great car to drive around. On the highway it cruises efforlessly along with traffic and has adequate power for passing. The first generation of the car has only a 4 speed automatic which can feel a little tired off the line sometimes but as I said it's adequate for most every day situations.

The interior is laid out very nicely and has excellent visability. The stereo is amazing for a stock unit and the heated seats come in handy on a cold morning. There are some harsh plastics on the doors and can be a little uncomfortable for lengthy traffic jams to lean your arm on.

In terms of fuel economy it is pretty good but could be a little better. In my personal experience I tend to get about 450-500 kms on a full tank but that might just be my driving style.

It is fairly cheap to run but be warned new tires will cost a pretty penny at 18inches.

Overall I love the Soul.

2012 Kia Soul

by Kat-Win on 10-18-2012
Love MY Soul
This is by far one of the best vehicles I've ever driven. It's cute, compact, and awesome on fuel! Despite it's "tiny" look, it offers loads of leg room and lots of room for groceries. I was very hesitant to purchase a Kia, as I've test driven a Kia about 6 years ago...and I was less than impressed. Kia has come a very long way! I love that the "Extras" weren't Extras with Kia, they came standard - heated seats, cruise control bluetooth, Floor Mats!
Love this vehicle!!

2011 Kia Soul

Tougher and stronger then I ever expected!
Just like the title says, it's far tougher then I had expected.

i went from a Jeep to this car and still go everywhere that I went with my Jeep (that's legal). :)
