Fans of the Soul “hamster car” will go out of their way to tell you what a great vehicle it is.
They are not just talking about how it looks and drives here either, as they will also talk a lot about the reliability of the funky Kia Soul.
It shouldn’t really come as a surprise to learn that the Soul is a reliable ride, and not just because you keep hearing it from owners.
In the most recent J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Survey, Kia became the first non-luxury brand to land at the top of the list. It should also be noted that the Kia Soul came out on top in its segment.
Kia have really gone out of their way to improve their overall quality in recent years, and the entire line-up has benefited from their R&D efforts.
Even if you do run across problems with Kia Soul, or any other vehicle that Kia makes, you still have the backing of the amazing 10-year/100,000-mile warranty that the Koreans deliver.
That said, you would still hope that problems would arrive later in the lifecycle, as opposed to sooner.
What we are looking to do here is get some feedback on Kia Soul issues that you may have had to deal with.
We want to hear about those specific issues, and how quickly into the ownership experience they began. Here is a brief example of some of the things we are talking about.
Possible Kia Soul issues
Kia Soul engine problems: These complaints should come from those of you who have followed the recommended maintenance schedule, but have still managed to be forced to deal with some engine problems.
Kia Soul clutch problems: Does the clutch stick when you are trying to shift gears, or does it just not feel as though you are getting a smooth transition up and down? We want to know.
Kia Soul electrical problems: Problems starting your car or issues with the battery maintaining a charge could be a sign of electrical issues. Have these been a problem for you?
Kia Soul suspension problems: One of the biggest selling points of any vehicle is having it deliver a smooth, comfortable ride. This isn’t possible when you have issues with the suspension. Has this been a problem with your Kia Soul?
Kia Soul paint problems – Chips or scratches on the exterior paint that appear to come from nowhere are an issue. The paint job is the first thing that people see on your car, which is why you want it to be perfect.
Other problems with Kia Soul
Every vehicle, no matter how well made, is eventually going to run into some problems. The Kia Soul issues mentioned above may be some that you have already experienced, but those are just a basic guideline.
