Pros: "Reliable, fun shape, roomy"

Cons: "Big blind spot, hatchback scratches, seats stain"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 6

Scratches on rear from pulling items out of hatchback.

"It looks great, has a fun color and shape, and is roomy... but there are some design flaws. First of all, the seat material is strange. When you try to clean them the water leaves discoloration. I don't know what to use to clean my seats because the more I try the worse they look. Secondly, there is a huge blind spot so you have to practically turn your head 90 degrees to change lanes. Third, when pulling items out of hatchback, the paint on rear gets scratched very easily - there should be rubber there or the hard plastic the bumpers are made of. It does not drive well in the rain, tires feel "squirrely." Apart from those items, it's been very reliable and when you put the rear seats down you can fit practically anything, including a LONGBOARD that measures 9' 6" and yes, I know from experience."

Pros: "Low price, warranty"

Cons: "MPG, visibility, windshield"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 2

"4, count 'em 4, windshield cracks in 19.000 miles. Never had that happen with any other car we've owned. Have our chip repair guy on retainer. Car itself is okay to drive, could definitely be more comfortable. Interior looks and feels cheap. Kia settled on misstating mileage claims on several models, so we get a little money from Kia for mileage reimbursement. Not a whole lot of acceleration, but I guess it isn't too bad for a 1.6L engine. Main disappointment is the windshield. Seems to take on rocks way too easily. (glass too soft, poor design?) We are thinking of selling it after just two years and we usually keep our cars a long time."

Pros: "Reasonable, bluetooth, good standard features"

Cons: "MPG, bad windshield design, poor cargo space"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 2

"Not really thrilled with our Soul. In the two years we have had it, it has had 3 window cracks with rocks. That has never happened with any car we have had. It is either the design or inferior glass, but a car with only 18k on it shouldn't have this problem. I get nervous just driving it now, waiting for the next crack. Also, not impressed with the acceleration, visibility, interior (looks cheap), MPG, and general comfort. We generally aren't complainers (we tend to keep our cars for a long time) but we are seriously considering getting rid of this car after just a couple of years."
