sblake5 - I agree with your comments, I have owned my Soul for over 3 years and it has the UVO system and no problems with it whatsoever. I've had one warranty claim which was a defective lens for the backup camera (it got moisture in it), other than that no problems at all, just regular maintenance.
I've just turned 71.

I'm having similar problem. 2012 Kia Soul with uvo. Radio worked fine. Came out next day, radio powers up but no sound. Clock was reset tom12:00. Checked all fuses twice. Pulled radio. I've got no constant power on yellow wire. I do have switched power on red. I have heard that some models have a code that you need to enter to get them back up and running. I have seen many posts about entering codes (0000 or1111) but never how this code is entered. Any help is appreciated.

there is a recall on the UVO units for the rio if you bring it up with the dealer.
my touchscreen didn't work well, the backup camera would stay on when driving forward, and sometimes i couldn't turn the screen off using the "off" button that is displayed when the radio is off.
they replaced the entire unit with a new one that looks the same, but is made by a different manufacturer.
i suggest that if you have ANY issues with the UVO you bring it up with the dealer, as likely those models made by the first mfg. are all being replaced as issues are brought forward by the customers.
