I think you need to read your owners manual carefully from cover to cover. Lots of good info in there and you can also download a copy from KGIS too.
by Ed Norton As I said Im taking the soul to the dealer tomorrow. I think this is a defect in the soul. It is reasonable to expect the soul to be kept in freezing tempatures-and if the locks keep freezing its a design defect. When I called the service department they said theres not much they can do - not what I wanted to hear. I will give them a chance to fix - but if they cant I will call kia

These are a chronic problem with the sorento and the chrome handles on the souls. The plastic is a poorer quality than the non chrome ones. Dont let the dealer tell you its abuse Ive changed at least 20-30 Ive lost count. We stock them now thats how often they come in.
out which usually means giving the other dealer a car from inventory. The salesman said it they want a car its pretty rare for another dealer not to help. Hum...I have to wonder if that means I wont get a discount off the sticker. Also the salesman said with the car being in transit he has no clue where it is. The car could be delivered somewhere tomorrow. I would have thought someone at kia

But I guess you guys will get some nice upgrades now thou. I like the door handles alot. I also see from the pic the why do me need a engine cover set will not be happy. As they seem to have put one on finally to dress the engine properly. No

Doing a lot of Googling Ive found that the door latch problem is epidemic with kias. In order to help others that I am sure will find themselves in this predicament I am posting some pictures that show how to reach a hand in and manually release the door latch. In my case I ended up going to the dealership and a very kind mechanic was able to open the door without destroying anything (he got lucky
Ahhhhh somebody just like me. Someone who just has to mod his car I like your ideas. I like the suicide door idea and have thought about doing the rear doors on my Spectra5. That would be one I would not attempt myself being a complicated mod so maybe someday. I will be shaving the door handles at some point in time. I could install the solenoids but would leave the body work up to somebody that knows bodywork. It is a good thing to know your limitations. Good luck on the CF hood as I dont believe they are available as yet but eventually there will be enuff demand for someone to produce them. Post up your progress on the soul. Modding your car...... sometimes I swear it is a sickness.
I do not own soul although it looks really nice. I just wanted to share my opinion about this vehicle. I did not drive I had only a chance to sit in it. I really liked the dash and all gauges. They look so nice But there is something what I did not like at all. The door handles. They seem to be fine now (summer) but on winter they may be too small.
Yeah.....kinda-sorta figured that. Itd be nice if they updated that. I like to browse for stuff. You find so many I never thought of that things that way. I just ordered some funny little pockets from SharkRacing because I was browsing all the soul stuff. The pockets fit in that space in your interior door handle I guess so you end up with a little place to put loose change carwash tokens etc....and
Theres a good chance you (or I) will never get access to the written code for the bluetooth software. It was written by the manufacture of the radio (not kia) somewhere in Asia as a one time project and they have moved on to newer radios (ones newer than 3 months old). This is part of the cheap throw away mindset of todays manufacturers. kia specd the radio to have certain features and to do certain
I DONT want to cut up the originals to put little screens in em. DO be careful when messing around your dash. I found the Sports RED dash to just be some sort of paint. I have not scratched it yet anywhere you would SEE it when the trim pieces are put back on. I would imagine it is EASY to scratch it though and then wouldnt know how to touch up the area with the correct red color. I dont think kia

Okay.....Took the drivers door panel off to look at the speaker. This speaker will be a REAL PAIN to replace if you ever want to. It isnt a regular speaker. door panel is easy enough to remove.Carefully pull the cover off just inside the mirror. On the panel there are three little caps (dont lose em) over a 2 phillips. One at the upper back of the panel another two in the sill. There are a couple hidden

sorry about the language barrier lugs- cockney rhyming slang for toby jugs you know a jug with the handle well thats the ear so toby jugs plural is two of them hence lug holes eqauls... your ears ...Back to the trickling water yes its sounds like its running down the door pillar next to the right hand side of my head ive noticed couple of drain holes in the roof at the front so am wondering if the water is channelled down the door pillar away out onto the floor

Those rims may not be everyones cup of tea but what is important is what YOU think of the look. That is whats great about the modding community everyone has their own tastes and flavors they bring to the table. You take what you like and you leave what you dont like. Anytime I see that style of rim I automatically think of the Salt Flat racers like 91sleeper posted. They are unique rims which give
OK.... so where do I start ... Now Im even more confused as to what the heatingcooling problem could be. See the radiator fan does turn on but very intermitantly. For example I could go for a nice run of 1.5hrs and it wont tun on at all even though the over heat light will turn on. Then at other times I can take it for a quick run to the store for 15 minutes and the fan will turn on just fine when

having them split is so useful As for the tires it is a tough choice again I know it makes more sense for us in seattle to get all season tires but the performance tires sound so tempting Well one example of the split back seat is buying long objects like lumber or long boxes. I recently bought a day bed for my beautiful grand-daughter. My son in law could NOT fit this 7 foot box into his kia
