2013 Kia Soul Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2013 Kia Soul based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
The navigation unit in the Kia Soul may suddenly stop playing audio from all speakers. This includes sound from CD players, radio, navigation, satellite radio, and telephone calls. All other features may still function properly.
This fault requires no parts replacement, and is a software glitch that can be rectified by a 'hard reset'.
To perform the hard reset, simply disconnect the vehicles negative battery terminal, wait 15 minutes, and reconnect the negative battery terminal.
The manual transmission may be difficult to shift into 1st gear. Our technicians tell us that a revised shifter lower skirt is available to correct this concern.
