2018 Kia Soul Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 052018

Soul 1 Million 1.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100 miles


Got this 2018 Kia Soul 1 Million. Very poor gas mileage. I drive a hundred miles one way a day and use over three quarters of a tank of gas in 200 miles. The car just does not have enough power to fight the wind or any slight pink lines on the road without passing gear kicking in and staying at almost 4000 RPM for a very long time. Have to heavy accelerate for the car that stay up with traffic at 80 miles an hour. With the air on only getting 19 miles to the gallon, if that, but to go 200 miles round-trip should not take me three quarters of a tank of gas. It took me a quarter tank to get there and I have to take to get back.

This is a very poorly designed engine. Besides that, I have no other complaints, but I needed the car for gas mileage and it's using more gas to my Pontiac G8 did that I traded in. I drove it 90 95 miles an hour and still never use as much gas as this thing does and it had a hundred seventy thousand miles on it. I highly regret buying this vehicle only for the fact of it has very very poor performance fuel consumption. Very disappointed, wish I can only give the car back.
