This is the 5th new KIA we've bought new from our Dealer...my 2013 Soul Exclaim, my Wifes 2013 Sorento SX, my sons 2014 RIO and daughters 2014 Sportage. My daughter-in-law bought a 2014 Optima SX tonight. All of our Fords are gone now! My Soul totally exceeded my expectations...it has been completely trouble free...none of the issues that come with a normal new car. Mileage is accepable for a squarish "box car", handling ditto! Unexpectedly the quality was way better than many of the high end cars we've owned in the past. Fit and finish is terrific, materials are first rate, ammenities and levels of standard equipment are also suprisinng. LED Tail Lights side markers and front driving light LEDs. Nice rally style fog/driving lights, projector head lights too. The gauge display is all brightly lit round sporty, recessed, functional and easily readable in bright daylight. The Infinity audio system/radio, and entire sound system is controlled by your voice with the UVO systems, and integrtes with your cell phone too. Lots of storage including hidden compartments, cup holders up the ying-yang, door storage, behind the seat storage, room under the front seats storage, dual level storage in th glove box, small dash board top eyeglass storage, etc! And special note to all you "do-it-yourselfers" out there, I'm in my mid 50's and have a collection of classic cars, I mainain them all. And believe me when I say the KIA engineers nailed it on the easiest oil change catagory. Taked mere minutes as everything s easily accesable. That means that unlike a Mazda and some other cars you don't have to dismantle all of the shrouds and splash guards. And the engine compartment is very well laid out...oil fill cap, radiator, coolant check and oil check dip stick are easily accessable. The paint is awsum...mine is Dark Moss Green Pearl..deep and beautiful. The 18" standard allow wheels are beautiful. The KIA 10 year 100,000 mile warranty is just icing on the cake
