Over the past few days I’ve been thinking about getting a replacement for the Honda Pilot that I’ve been dying to get rid of and one car has been standing out. The Kia Soul (first and second gen). I’ve generally heard pretty good things about this car and prices are pretty good for base 6-speed ones with less than 40,000 miles. They’re pretty roomy, look cool and are not bad to drive. They seem to suit my needs perfectly despite slightly lackluster mileage. I would love to get one in “Alien.”

So does anyone have any experience with these cars? How are they in terms of reliability and comfort?

I’m generally looking at compact cars that are fun-to-drive right now with less than 40,000ish miles and preferably under 11k.
