    I like the color. Looking at the avatar and info below it: You need to edit and take the Terrain away if you no longer have it.

    GMI is on the cutting edge of 20 years ago as far as posting pictures. Someone in the back office needs to take a look at Facebook or Instagram and their ease of picture posting. I think needing to upload pics to imgur first is ridiculous. But with that said, that is the way it is right now.

    Many years of good luck with it Neanderthal!

    Got imgur to work, a minor miracle for my seriously oxidized photo skillz. Got link to work. I guess the Fascinated Reader will have to click link to see photos of Souls he sees on the road every day.

    I've always liked the Soul! Funky and fun. Curious as to why you got rid of the Terrain though?

    Thaxx carnut. I'm really enjoying it. Zip zip zip.

    Thaxx ryannel. Me too. It was the hamster cage ads that got me started! It IS fun!

    Terrain was just a ponderous fantastically boring car, take your mom to the prom type snore. It was VERY utilitarian, I loved the space in back (not that I needed it) and that the back seat slides back about 6" and that it has two positions of recline/non-recline. Not that I sit back there much.

    But it really gave me a good solid understanding of "appliance" as applied to cars. I thought, if I'm paying for this for three years I'd prefer to pay for something I really enjoy for five years and OWN it at the end. So it all sucked big bucks away but this is what I want, life is short, its FUN to drive.

    I love the simple dashboard. I really dislike the many-tiny-buttons dashboards that the Terrain--and the Maz--had.

    Got that. I haven't tried to post pics for some years now. It used to be fairly simple, I let the perishable skill perish. Now if I can just get that link to actually show up as a series of pics, I'll be a happy camper. And amazed at my amazing photo skillz!

    How does this one compare to your previous Kia Soul? I'm not sure if it has the same engine/tranny/options, but in terms of performance and packaging, is it the same or better than the one you had from a couple years back?

    It seems to ride smoother, that's the major standout difference vs. my '15 I've noticed from the '16 and '17 Souls I've driven, whether the ! or the & model.
    I expected the ! to be iffy with the 18s but it seems KIA has done something somewhere to ease the ride. Bushings perhaps?

    And as I recall, this motor seems peppier than my '13 & 1.6/6A model, but it's been a while since I drove that so I can't be sure. Seems is the operative word.

    And I was pleasantly surprised at the pep coming from the Gamma mills, these cars seem at least as zippy as my '15 + 2.0 Nu. Again, without back-to-back I can't be sure, I just rely on memory. It would be nice to line them up and run them all to 80 but that ain't going to happen.

    Being a base model this car is minus a few items, I guess the most noticeable is auto-down/auto-up for the two front windows. I have auto-down only on the driver's side. No biggie. If I'm too tired to run the window up I'll retire to the rocking chair.

    Otherwise, PW, PDL, remote lock, AC of course, cruise, all the accoutrements expected on a modern car are there.

    Also no backup cam and bluetooth (a $500 option package that was on the car I was going to buy but which was sold before I got to the dealer) but no UVO. UVO worked like a charm in my '15, we haven't even tested this out yet so I should do that and report back.

    I do really like the houndstooth grey upholstery. I DON'T like the grey dash, that reflects. The rest of the dash assembly is attractive but on top it should be flat black.

    Packaging otherwise is the same. Same huge glove box, same Top Secret Compartment under back floor. Clearly KIA fiddled with the engine etc. because this one pretty consistently shows around 32 on the optimistic MPG calculator. I rarely breached that barrier in either of the previous Souls, as you can see if you visit Fuelly.

    And how are you liking your Turbo-Man car these days?
