My wife wanted one of those Sole's but there was no room for luggage if anyone sat in the back. We bought the Ford Focus instead. Sorry to see ya go. Good luck with the Kia.

I was going to buy one and then KIA got busted for lying about the MPG and now the new MPG isn't all that much better then a PT so I will keep the PT a while longer. It's paid for and I enjoy it, just wish it got better mpg.

Besides, you'll have to buy a Hamster costume for the whole family to drive it.

This is a truth, my Ex country has a 2012 Soul.....My 03 Pt gets better mileage, and hey its surprising that you can never do a 4 wheel alignment because the rear end is designed oddly and no shops can figure out how :/

NO WAY

It amazes me that more people don't see how many lies companies tell. What's worse is when they claim that foreign companies lie less than US ones. I don't know what the stats are but when companies blame their customers for their defects, I'm sure not going to buy their product.

GM, Ford and Chrysler aren't saints and they've made some real junk but tell me who hasn't.

Not as roomy as a PT but in the few months I drove the PT i never made any use of all that cargo space. with the rear seats down the soul offers more than enough cargo room for me.

As for mpg, i'm hoping its better than the pt, kia claims 25mpg...ive heard ppl getting more like 20mpg...I'll let you know how it compares.

in any case, I like the soul...its still a hatchback and feels like a mini truck.
i would've gone for a newer pt but couldnt find any non convertible gts...also i wasnt sure the newer pt seats would be all that comfortable and finally theres the mpg issue. so kia soul it is...hopefully the mpg is better
