Bought the Soul ! for my son last week at Liberty Auto Plaza in Libertyville, IL. He drove the Nissan Cube & Scion xB & strongly preferred the Soul. Liberty has been great to deal with in every way. I've bought numerous Nissan's from them but this was my first Kia. They went out of their way to locate & trade for the color my son wanted & had it the next day.
So far, he LOVES the vehicle. The styling isn't as polarizing in or out as the Cube & it has more power & standard features than the others in this class for the price. The 1.9% APR financing & much longer standard warranty make this a fantastic value as long as the reliability is good.
As a repeat customer, I got a very good deal. Most dealers in this area are asking list price & adding options but Liberty did give me a fair discount (not much profit margin) & a super-easy buying experience with no "brain damage" from the staff.
I highly recommend the Soul ! & Liberty Kia.

Congrats on getting your new Soul, gofitguy. It certainly sounds as though you had a pleasant dealer experience. You can stop by the Dealer Ratings & Reviews section of Edmunds.com to tell even more people about it if you'd like. I hope that your son enjoys his new ride .

Wow, I really thought there'd be more activity in this discussion. I will be making a deal very soon on a Soul+ with the five-speed sometime in the next week, I hope. I'll post the results here, in case there's anyone reading the Soul discussions.

oh yeah, I'm following the Soul discussions. Kia is one my two favorite carmakers and the Soul has definitely caught my attention for it's smooth quirkiness.

I bought a Sport model with the sun roof, paid 18,900. Vestal NY at Matthews Auto, nice people everything went great. So far I love the car and I'm not a young buyer, I'm 43 but the car fits me. I lost my right leg a few years back and the seat height in this is perfect for me getting in and out of it.
#8 of 67 had mine 3 weeks/1800 miles

So far So good. I have had a few new cars over the years but this is the first new car I have bought that I have not found any defects yet. I am 52 and believe it is a very sensible and classy car. Comfortable and good head room with lots of extras for the price.
It is the ! model which includes the sunroof. Paid 18,500 with a little extra pinstripe and home link / compass mirror from Coleman Kia in NJ. They were good, price was fair and they found me the model and color I wanted.
#9 of 67 You are crazy

You people are crazy for paying over OVER sticker for a Kia Soul. In three months there will be rebates on them. It happens with almost every new model that has any appeal at all.
I went to a Kia dealer while CfC was going on. They wanted me to give them $18K for a Soul+ manual transmission. I laughed and walked away. The salesman called me today, now that CfC is over, and offered the car for $17K. I told him to call when it was down to $15K or so. I expect the call in November.

They actually got good deals on there Souls, both are under suggested retail. Most Kia dealerships are doing between 1500 to 3000 above MSRP due to lack of inventory and high demand. Good luck getting a + model for 15K, you may be waiting a little bit longer than november for that phone call. You could however purchase yourself a xB and for 17K you will not get sat. radio bluetooth keyless entry power w/L or a 10 year 100,000 mile waranty. But hey at least you will get a good deal right?
