I saw two of these this winter flipped over off the road. What is that all about?

#22 of 67 Heated Leather seats in Soul
Feb 18, 2010 (3:23 pm)
I took a test drive in a Kia Plus automatic and it had heated leather seats. This option doesn't show up in the brochure and when I asked the salesman if this is an aftermarket add on, he said that's how they come from the factory. I called Kia and they told me no such options exist. The leather was black with white stitches and very well done, but the seat heater was useless. I liked the car for the relatively high seating position and the short length, with 161 inches it will fit into any garage and it will be easy to park. I probably wouldn't take it on a long trip but as a city car it's near perfect. It has four doors and a hatchback in a very short body, drives well, better than the Fit, and more relaxed than my VW GTI. I'm considering this instead of the Honda Element or CRV now.

The limited-production "Special Edition 3" comes with the black leather and seat heaters. It's not available on other Souls.

Thanks for the update. The Kia rep. at the toll free phone center wasn't aware of its existence. I really liked the interior, I hope they would make it available on the other models. Maybe by Christmas they'll have them.

The local kia dealer has $1750 added to the msrp plus $600 in paint sealant. He must have 15 Souls gathering dust on the lot. Pretty funny.
#26 of 67 Buying Kia Soul w/Bad Credit?
Mar 09, 2010 (10:33 am)
Due to layoff, my credit history has taken some blows of late. I need an inexpensive reliable car, and the Soul looks like it meets my needs. I could put 2000-3000 down on a car w/o "pain". How accomodating are Kia dealers for people with poor credit? Does having cash to put down help improve my chances of getting financed or not?
I've explored buying something outright that's "had the wheels run off of it", but everything I've seen is pretty scary, and I don't want to buy $2000 worth of unreliability.
Appreciate any feedback you guys have. Thanks.

I think that depends on the dealer, but here in Macon, Georgia, the Kia dealer has been actively recruiting buyers with poor credit. Of course, these buyers probably wind up paying MSRP+, not to mention high interest rates and exorbitant charges for a "protection package."
