    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.

    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."

    Hi
    Hubby and I bought a new Soul + last week at Kia Mall of Georgia near Atlanta. It came with the Audio upgrade package, the rear bumper applique, the floor mats, cargo tray and wheel locks. I talked to every dealer in the Athens/Atlanta area and even test drove a few and none would budge on the sticker price. Couldn't get any other dealer to come down below 17,800 for the bare bones + model even when we went in to test drive. The Mall of Georgia dealership came down over the phone, their sticker price was $17,655 and we paid $15,900 including tax and all fees for our new Kia. It was the only no hassle dealer we found. In fact it took us less time to buy our Soul and drive home, then to test drive and listen to the sales pitches at other Kia dealers. Absolutely love our Soul, still can't believe the great gas mileage and the blue tooth and audio controls on the steering wheel are awesome! It took us a while to contact each dealership and try and work out a deal, but we got one in our price range and are very happy with our Soul.

    Got a quote from dealer:
    Soul + with audio upgrade, cargo cover, cargo net, cargo liner, floor mats.
    $15,950 OTD, including all but titling and registration, which cost about $40.

    Tax rate is 7.65% here and we qualify the $1,000 competitor rebate.

    We ended up buying a Toyota Venza, but we did consider this vehicle. We walked away from a deal with the highest loaded Soul on the lot for a pre hard stance negotiation price of 2ooo usd below invoice, or in this area, Tampa, 16500. Loved its zippy engine and look, ride did just not satisfy. Great warranty.

    On 6/28, bought a Shadow Soul Base model for $13441 minus a trade-in that Edmunds says is worth $928. Didn't qualify for competitor rebate, did qualify for grad rebate ($400)which brings me down to $12,041+$200 doc fee(this includes destination fee). This does not include tax, or registration. Drove the car home on this date, but then the dealer called me telling me the rebate changed and I could also have the grad rebate AND 0% APR. I was happy with this. I could not think of a reason the dealer would call me back except customer satisfaction. I guess I'm too cynical now. Courtesy Kia in Attleboro, MA was my dealer-Love my car!
  • Great Job KYFDX!

    I was wondering did that price include any rebates or customer credits?
    Trade-in?

  • ya got there, markusof. Enjoy it! Kia is on a roll that is really surpassing that of big bro Hyundai right now, IMO.

  • Can you tell me which dealer you were working with? I've looked at Century, but couldn't get them below invoice more then a couple hundred.

    Has anybody bought a soul+ with audio upgrade lately?
  • sirk98sirk98 Posts: 7
    Thinking about purchasing or leasing a Soul+ automatic w/ sunroof/foglights, rear applique, sound upgrade, cargo net/cover, etc; remote start, wheels locks, etc...

    Wondering what people are seeing out there. I am in NYC area...

    Hi, sirk98. I'm also looking around for a Soul + (basic config is good enough for me). I'm in Stamford, CT. The newly opened dealer said they just sold out SOUL for now. Any good KIA dealer you know in NYC (or metro NY)? Thx.

    Hi jjcai

    Stamford actually seemed the most honest of the dealerships I spoke to. Check dealerrater.com--seems to be a good resource for finding reputable dealers...

    If Stamford is out of pocket, I might try Karp Kia on Long Island, as they have great ratings
