The Kia Soul: A Good Car for a Road

I was visiting the state of Missouri, but in of some wheels to get back to California, thus I went to an car rental establishment and asked for a vehicle. I chose the compact of car because I assumed I would get the gas mileage without having to be in a cart sized vehicle. The car I was given was a Kia Soul.

I am not sure year the Kia Soul I was set up with but I can tell you it only had 26,000 on it and featured Virginia license I assume it was a newer 2011 Visually I did not feel cool in the Kia Soul, as it looks kind of a box on wheels, however, the interior was in design.

The real test for this would be how it would handle from Missouri to California.

I mashed the gas pedal down on the Kia I was not blown away by the acceleration however, I did find I was able to at pass a few more sluggish when climbing a hill. is a green light that on the Soul’s panel that ECO. This light me for quite a long time some wifi google revealed it is a feature meant to drivers to be better at gas management. the green ECO light is on it means you are at a proper, steady pace is good for gas management. I found ‘ECO feature to be worthless and the Kia and its gas management to be a big issue.

First of all I was not impressed with the MPG for the vehicle and then was horrified to that the vehicle only as a 12 gas tank! A car with such a gas tank adds time to a country trip and had me worried the long stretches of desert and no I would encounter. I made to carry a gas can filled with gas with me in the vehicle.

I did not end up having to use the gas and used the extra stops for filling as a means to keep from getting too drowsy the trip.

Turned off by the gas tank capacity, I was on by the interior of the Kia Soul, for it looked spacious. If one lays the backs down it creates a nice storage space, or as I viewed it: a area! To save money on a I planned to use the rear of the Kia to sleep in at a area, figuring it would be way comfortable compared to a regular vehicle and its rear seat.

If I had better prepared with and pillows I think the rear of the Kia could have made a enough sleeping area, I was not. The section where the bend to lay down created an rift in the area and when I did doze sprawled across it I with ample pain in my and back.

When I crossed the state of there were severe and the Kia Soul rocked back and just as any other puny car but I did not have any problems when the began. It was very serendipitous I ended up with the Kia Soul of some other compact because the Kia Soul I got had four-wheel Once I left Kansas, I Colorado, and in the Rocky Mountains turned into a snowstorm!

The was gone and I was griping the steering tight, trying to navigate the dark. I did not slide or lose even once. So, the Kia Soul is a and wobbly automobile in strong but kept me nice and safe the snow.

Would I ever buy a Kia Soul? No. The gas tank coupled with MPG statistics in comparison to other made the vehicle seem to me, though I won’t knock it for design: it was a fairly comfortable The exterior, however, is more in my opinion and I did find it was not as easy to in and out of tight parking spots the design. My trip took me rainy Missouri, to windy and Kansas, to snowy Colorado, to digits heat in Utah, to blowing bits of Arizona Nevada, and then into

The vehicle felt a bit rickety by the end as I rode it hard, but I must say it up for me regardless of how I ultimately look on it.
