If you check into your radio problem a little further you will find out you can get a Factory reman radio for you Soul for just about $100.00. I know you feel you should not have to pay at all. But at least it's a CHEAP fix.......

Where would I get the reman radio from? dealer, auto zone. I'm interested, dealer wanted a min. of $110.00 just to look at car b/c of it being out of warranty. I would go that route in a heartbeat.

I would sell you one through here, but I will need your old radio as a core. It would be easier to do it at your local Kia dealership. It's up to you. If you like, give me the last 8 of your vin# I'll look up your radio, and make sure of the price and give you Kia's part#. You PM me if you want.

This site is for all Kia owners...
This section is for Rio's, but it's radio related.
Your remened Radio has a list price of $85.00. This is the Part# R6160-2K500DS5. If they try to charge you any more than that, ask to see "this" higher price on there parts catalog screen.

Sweet, called dealer parts dept., cost is $83.35, radio has problem-typical he said, he did ask me year and said under warranty-told him mileage, oh shucks! not covered, the radio has a life like dog years, it is a 2 1/2 year old radio! BUT the mileage makes it like 6 years old
Told him my issue with dealer kinda, maybe misleading me allegedly(my words), he said there is a loop hole with the whole 10/100 warranty words thrown around and that the radio is just 3 yr/36k mile warranty. My love of KIA has taken a hard hit.

Now, when get radio just have to figure out how to get to it

There are no 'loopholes' in the warranty. Have your read the warranty booklet that came with your vehicle? (I'm assuming you bought it new). Everything is spelled out; what is covered, what isn't, which category the various covered items fall under, and the length of time/mileage of each category, nothing is hidden. Can't really blame KIA for that though I wouldn't have much 'love' for the salesman you describe.

No I did not read my owners manual you receive "AFTER" purchasing the vehicle, salesperson shows us how the radio works and tells us how great the "system" is, of the 6 new cars I have purchased in the past ALL the radios are still working. I've said before it is MY FAULT I did not do my research/confirmation of warranty, but KIA dealerships in general when we were looking at cars all kept saying 10/100 which is there, just no details of 3/36 or 60k mile warranty. If you talk to people "in general" they believe that KIA has a 10/100 bumper to bumper warranty on the SOUL, even other threads people ask "isn't it covered, it only has xmiles no where near the 10year/100k mile warranty. Funny how I receive money for false misrepresentation of mpg, could they have misled the warranty? I did not have camera or recorder nor have I sued for anything in past-just shocked when parts (I've replaced tires, brakes and bulbs, etc..) not looking for a free ride, go bad and Kia dealership says that will be $110.00 to look at your car and take from there because nothing is under warranty-your car did not come in on a rollback :-( What is making me mad is the fact that this is COMMON and I should be happy there is a forum to talk about repairing yourself and the fact that the parts are cheap, really. Yes the cars I play with are 40yr old muscle cars and yes they did not have bluetooth and etc, but they did go from am to am/fm to am/fm 8 track to am/fm cassette etc.. Heck they have a computer on mars that was suppose to last 90 days and it has been up there for 10+ years-KIA can't put a radio in my car that last 6 years!?? And when there is a issue they have 3 yr warranty but the radio has wheels on it and with 60k miles it's not covered, and is rated like dog years.

You missed the point. Did you read it "BEFORE" you had a problem with the vehicle? In my case, I asked specific questions about the warranty to the point where the salesman brought out literature and showed me the specifics.

Not sure how common the radio problem on a Soul is. People having problems are going to complain especially on a vehicle specific website. What you don't see, for the most part, is praise from those who are not having problems. I wonder if the numbers between those two groups would differ enough to call it 'common". Doubtful. I don't own a Soul but I have a Rio and haven't had any problems whatsoever with it in approximately a year of ownership. My brother in law has a 2012 Soul that has been problem free during his ownership.

As far as the other things you mention; I'm nearly 65 years old and sometimes do lament things not being the way they once were but, what we have is what we have so what good does that really do?
