    Just bought a 2019 Kia Soul+.

    What do you think so far? We're just about to get a new vehicle and the Soul was on MY list, but the wife had once as a rental for a week on a biz trip recently and she decided it wasn't for her, and as it will be her primary vehicle...

    My need was for a grocery getter that my mobility impaired wife could get into. I needed a rather upright A pillar, a seat cushion about 25” off the ground and a low sil step over height. The Soul was the only one that fit my specific criteria.

    Other than that I was impressed that it drove and handled OK for such an inexpensive car. I paid almost exactly what I paid for my PT Cruiser 10 years ago.

    This won’t be my only vehicle as I have three others to suit my every mood. :p

    A wide selection to choose from eh? :)

    I like the Soul and it WAS on our list of possibles until the wife had one for a week on a biz trip. That was the end of that

    What do you think about the 2020 Kia Telluride?

    Saw it at the auto show. Not as big as you might think - more Pilot or Highlander sized.

    Very handsome, inside and out. I predict it will be a big hit.

    The "offroad" commercial with the Telluride growling around the muddy pasture is interesting:)

    I like seeing the concept vehicles at auto shows, but the implementation often is a bit of a let down. Here's the Kia GT 4 Stinger concept as revealed in 2014, and the 2019 Kia Stinger

    @oldfarmer50

    The Soul concept made it through relatively unscathed

    Not the best pictures but, I will say I have been driving it more the way it was intended to be driven, and it is a very fun car!

    I have a 04 Sedona and it goes into reverse but won't go into forward gears
  • PF_FlyerPF_Flyer Pennsylvania Furnace, PAMember Posts: 9,372
    Should check the gear shifter. The gear cable could be stretched further than the normal length and need adjusting. Could also be internal problems in the transmission like worn out solenoids, clutches, or gears. Or maybe low transmission fluid level.

    Just picked up a 2020 Forte GT. My 2014 Forte meet its demise due to an idiot who pulled out in front of me. Loved my 2014 and the 2020 so far.
