    Ok, I went from a 2006 Hyundai Azera Ltd (used) to a new 2012 Kia Soul ! in 2012. I didn't think I'd run into any problems with a brand new car, so I took out a 3 year lease. I'm 18 months into my lease and now I'm starting to have some odd problems, with the car either accelerating or deccelerating on it's own. I tend to stay away from highways when this seems to be happening. I am now going to be taking it to the dealership tomorrow for the 3rd time. First time, they reset the adaptive learned settings and 2nd time they put in some more transmission fluid. Tonight, it decided it was going to hold it's breath while I was driving and then the check engine light ( or whatever they are now calling it) came on. Has anyone obtained a successful resolution to this problem? I saw at least 3 complaints on the NHTSA site (only thru 9-30-13 due to gov't shutdown). But can't tell if anyone got it safely fixed.

    What's your favorite feature of the Soul? I see a fair number of them on the roads here in PA

    Has the hood on the Kia Soul changed since 2013? My sister has a 2013, and while I like it, it annoys me slightly that i can only see a small amount of the hood from the driver's seat. I sat in a 2015 Soul at the dealership today, and it seemed to me more of the hood was visible. But perhaps the seat was just up higher than my sister's. I know the Soul received some styling changes in 2014 so I wonder if perhaps the view is hood view is slightly different on the newer models. I came to age in the 70s and all the cars then had nice long hoods. I really love seeing the hood!
