Pros: I REALLY LIKE THE STEERING WHEEL CONTROLS FOR RADIO AND CRUISE.

SOUL without a heart
Pros: sirius xm radio
Cons: gas performanceSave your money. This rice burner Gas milage gets lousy 20mpg. Auto tranny at 6500 miles is slipping, Brought car into hands free car wash, only to have body side moldings knocked off from wash water. Car rides like a truck - hitting the smallest of road ruts or potholes and my teeth clash and chatter together, as the entire cabin reverberates.inside. Engine runs rough on 87 octane, upon accelerating is not smooth, you feel excessive vibrations. Weight distribution not good, front wheel drive wheels spin out excessively
Pros: Standard items that are options for other makes.
Cons: A little bit of a hard ride.This appears to be the perfect low end vehicle for young drivers or older drivers who like youthful style yet low cost. It comes equipped with sat radio and bluetooth in all versions. Plenty of inside head room and rear seats that fold down for large items. With Kia lease and financing available you can't beat the price and add in the 5 year warranty and you can't go wrong. Who doesn't love the hamster commercials?
Pros: Bluetooth,radio buttons on steering wheel
Cons: The Sunroof isn't large enough.I Sold My 2003 Nissan Altima. And my husband said I could have any car I wanted under $22K. Thats alot of cars to choose from. So I drove all of them. The Last car he had me drive was the Kia Soul !... This car had more options in it than every other car. And more Air Bags No Extra cost. I drive the Soul 500 miles a week for work. I LOVE IT!! I'm at 4000 miles at 6 weeks I average 32 mpg. We drove to maine and back at 40 mpg. We had 2 women in the front (5'2',150) ad 2 men in the back seat (6'2' 220-250) and our gear for 500 miles. No one complained, we were all comfortable. Even my husband who has a back/neck problem didn't complain. I have no Problems parking! RUNS AWESOME!!! Would Recomend 1000% and more!!!!!
Better than for Hamsters
Pros: The Sound!!!
Cons: There is a definite blind spot in the right rear; merging to the right is tough.The Kia Soul is amazingly spacious. All my driving is city driving and I get a consistent 27 mpg with a 5 speed and 2000 cc powerful 4. The AC is cold; the electronic goodies are plentiful. But the best thing about the Soul is the incredible sound system. Kia's come a long way!
Pros: Sound System
Advice: great compact grocery getterThis is a great compact grocery getter. I get about 31 mpg on the road. The ride is not as great as other vehicles that I have but we got it for mileage & it does that great. The sound system is great. I would reccomend this car as a great tool for running around.
