Kia Soul Questions
My car doesn't make the sound when idle only when driving. It sounds like when you have a manual and are not shifting. My car is an automatic. The sound gets worse when I turn right and seems to stop when I turn left.
When I started car it was cold but 10 minutes into my drive its no longer cold. I haven't had any issues previously, and there has been no decline in temp gradually. The ac is blowing up to par, just warm/hot air. What could the problem be? I'm scheduled to take it in for service Monday...
we have had the timing belt and the power steering belt replaced and now they are replacing the serpentine belt
Kia Soul Recalls
The affected Kia models are being recalled because the brake light switch can fail prematurely, resulting in the loss of brake light operation as well as concerns with other electrical systems including: Cruise control, push-button start feature, shifter, and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. Dealers will replace the brake light switch to correct this concern.
The front and/or rear doors have special wiring to control certain lighting functions. Electrical connections in these wire harnesses are soldered to help ensure a solid connection. These vehicles are being recalled because the solder joints in these lighting harnesses may not have been manufactured to the proper specification and when the lights are illuminated under certain conditions, an electrical short circuit may occur that can result in an electrical fire. Dealers will replace the necessary parts to address this concern.
Kia Soul Reviews
I don't really know what is wrong with my 2011 Kia Soul, but it starts when it wants to!! I have had it at the dealer and they cannot duplicate the problem. I had it towed this morning in hopes that they will find something to fix!! I cannot be out and not know whether or not my car will start.
I am almost 60. Favorite car I have ever owned !
Alright so agree with the car starting only when it wants to, I've had some problems with KIA and feel others should be aware. We took the car into the Birchwood Kia dealership @ 1364 Regent in Winnipeg, MB. First they told us the clutch was shot,... on a 3 year old car?! So after we did not authorize that, they told us the car would not start and the starter was shot.. again the car is 3 year...
