2010 Kia Soul Real Gas Mileage: Cons

2010 4dr Hatch 142-horsepower 2.0L I4

I am somewhat dissappointed in the gas mileage I have been getting with my Soul. I average about 28MPG, city or highway. Not much difference between long and short trips. see full Kia Soul review

For a car its size, with a 1.6 liter engine and :-( an automatic transmission, mileage is no better than a much larger, smoother-riding Buick Lacrosse. Disappointing. However, Kia -- fast learners -- fixed this for the 2012 models. see full Kia Soul review
