Some of the most common problems with the Kia Soul + include:
  • Connecting rod and piston ring failure, which are typically associated with high-mileage Kia Soul + models
  • Faulty catalytic converter, which may need total replacement
  • Poor suspension due to faulty steering pins or front wheel bearings
Pass along the congrats to your daughter about buying a used car! It’s a momentous step and one she should be proud of! As the top-of-the-line model from 2010 to 2019, the Kia Soul + has few serious issues, but some may arise.
