About Me!

My KIA Soul

I bought my 2014 Latte Soul Base A/T back in March 2014. Had a whole 31 miles on it! (guess from other test drives) Got it for $14,222 with a few extras like mudflaps, SOUL floor mats, and maybe a few other dealer add-ons. No real mods besides my Amp and 2 12’s I pulled from my 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Still running great!

A few updates in 2022/2024: Replaced my Sony Radio with a Kenwood DMX9708S. Also Door speakers and tweeters have been replaced. Along with an added 4 channel amp for the doors.

I have took numerous photos of my soul, along with one I took in the fall of 2015, has been shared and spread across several dealer websites AND was posted by KIA Motors America on their Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social
media accounts last month! Here is the link to their Twitter Post,

I had a check engine light at 21,000 were a sensor on the transmission threw a code, but fixed it self, but dealership replaced it anyway, along with the few recalls that’s came out. I do currently have 2 issues and 2 concerns. 1st
main issue is the sun glasses holder, at random times it has a rattle like something broke off in it and is rattling around, but noticeable only really on roads that are not as smooth but is very annoying at times. Sometimes it makes
noise sometimes it does not. 2nd is what sounds like coming from the back when going slowly over speed bumps or really bumpy roads like its the suspension but not sure. My 2 concerns is when turning off my car I hear a bubbling gurgling
noise, I just recently recalled hearing it again since having to use AC. 2nd concern is my AC sometimes has a mildew smell but usually goes away after 30 seconds. My Soul soon will need new tires, still running on the stock tires.

Overall I love my Soul and hope she makes it to 200k+!

Back in March 2020, I did a complete overhaul on the sound system in my Soul
