Steering Gear Failure

The steering linkage may separate from the steering gear due to a loss of adhesive. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the pinon plug that secures the pinion gear free of charge to resolve the concern.

Accelerator Pedal May Bend And Break

The accelerator pedal may bend and fracture, making it difficult to accelerate the vehicle. Dealers will add a supporting rubber underneath the pedal stopper free of charge to resolve the problem.

Side Curtain Airbag

In the event of a crash where the side curtain airbags are deployed a headliner plate can detach, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will correct this concern by adding industrial adhesive strips to secure the headliner plates.

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.
great little car,, plenty of space,,bought used,,18 inch rims,, tires aren't cheap,, all in all am greatly satified with car
Only have had it for 4 months, but a great car. Fun to drive. Loads of room for a small car. People notice you
