5 Things I Love About My Car

I’ll admit I had a Kia when they were not such great cars. The kia corporation has really stepped their game up over the last few years making them more efficient & reliable. The Cadenza is rated at #3 & the Sorento is rated at #7!

When I was looking for a new car I was always brought back to kia. The car I traded in was a 2014 Kia Forte & I absolutely loved it. I would get 35mpg every where I went & it had the pick up to go. I was looking for something that was more individual & had a little personality (not saying the mid sized car didn’t). I wanted an SUV something that was a little higher up to make me feel safer. After reading review after review I decided to check out the 2015 Kia Soul. It was a winner!

5 Things I Love About My Car:
1. Navigation – I have the worst navigational skills EVER! I probably couldn’t find my way out of a paper bag. I get this from my mother & my aunts.
2. Back up camera – I’m in love with this feature because I no longer bump curves. You’d be surprised how much room ya have left once you don’t need to over do it.

3. Sirius Radio – I’ve listened to the local radio stations all of 2% in the last 2 years I’ve had Sirus. I activated it with the Forte & I’ll always have it.
4. Light up speakers – These make me happy. I can set them to pulse with the music, to fade colors, or turn them off completely.
5. Roomy – there’s so much room! The back seats fold down into an 80-20 split in case someone needs to ride with said thing in the backseat or they’ll go all the way down for bigger things. It’ll be great on long trips! Grab a pillow & a blanket & catch a nap for an hour or two then continue on.

      Awesome! Variety is the spice of life. I bet you could get a discount on insurance. Some companies do a twin car policy. I hope your having a great day!

  2. Light up speakers would make me happy, too! One of my friends has a Kia Soul, and I was so surprised at how roomy they are. I’m glad you are enjoying your new car!

      It is roomy, I love it. I had to turn off the speaker lights last night. I have the flu and they were killing my eyes. I had to make a Walgreens run for more meds. I hope your having a great day love bug!

    It’s a very cute car 🙂 We have to choose another car when we finish traveling and move back to Australia this year. All I know I want is an AWD!

      O)h I’d love to visit Australia! Yeah, an all wheel drive is a great idea! We don’t get a lot of snow and I’m about 2 hours from the beach but i’m too scared to drive on the beach myself. It’s nice to meet you & I hope your having a great day!

    *fist bump* Fellow Korean car owner! Enjoy the hell out of your Kia. I get approached by people who want to buy my Hyundai and I tell them they can have it when I’m dead.

      Haha! I love this car! Hyundai’s are awesome too! A friend of mine at work has one and I love driving it too. It’s so smooth, the design of it is cool too. Drive it until the wheels fall off! I hope your having a great Saturday!

    One of the parents at my kids school has this funky little car and I always think it looks so cool, hers is a grey color though but I love the red even better!

    Hi Leslie! Returning the love! You are totally right! Kia really has come a long way! When we were in the market for a new car we couldn’t find anything else that had the features, style for their competitive prices!

    I have a Kia Soul also and I love it. Mine is burnt orange, which is kind of fun and sporty. But mine’s the older one – 2011, so it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles. But that’s OK. I don’t have a car payment and it’s still got about 60,000 miles on the warranty, so that’s worth a lot more to me. It was a bit of a downgrade though. I traded in my Dodge Caravan for it. Didn’t make much sense for me to keep driving it since I only had one kid still left at home, and it was at death’s door to boot with 160,000 miles, but I still loved that van. But for just me and sometimes the teen, the tiny car is a much smarter choice! #SITSSharefest

      I love the souls, I’ve wanted one since they first came about. Wow, that’s awesome you’ve only got that many miles & that much warranty left. I can’t wait for the day this one is paid for.

    Nice car!

    I like the backup camera too. I’m always paranoid I’m going to hit something.

    I have a 2011 Kia Soul in Red. When I was looking for a new vehicle, I saw it and was I like “I want this car and you can’t make me change my mind so make it happen”. I do want to upgrade to the newest model but I think I’ll wait another year once I’m closer to finishing college.
