    I hate that. I bought my shadow dragon only because it was fully loaded with leather. Sunroof and was a stick.

    Yeah, it's kind of sad. It was bound to happen. People now a days would rather pop it into gear and forget about it.

    Great write up and some nice looking quality photos, but that thing is an ugly and gutless turd.

    I'd rather have an old VW "Thing" instead.

    The only, and I do mean ONLY thing I like about it, is the fact that the rear seat has a flip down arm rest built-in. I am now fearing that Otis may be the first and last Soul I ever own, as Kia has continually created follow-on Souls that are less and less appealing to me each year.

    OK, so I do like the fact that it's got Android-based ICE, too, but that's about it.

    Kia needs to make a Sport or "GT" model of the Soul, with AWD, a more aggressive stance, and a Forced-Induction powerplant of some sort. Good God, at least make a Turbo Diesel available for the U.S. market already! I'd love to see some modded-up TDI Soul "Rollin' Coal"! lol

    Remember, these are MY opinions, so don't get butt-hurt by them if you happen to think this latest incarnation of the Soul was hand-crafted by the Gods themselves.

    ...and if you do think that, then I want some of whatever the hell it is you're smokin', cuz you be high-as-a-kite, mang!

    IMHO. YMMV.

    ^^^^^ I agree they blew the rear completely. But I hate the front of the older ones.

    The pod things for the fogs and rear reflectors are what did it in for me. Everything thing else was doable.
