Kia Soul Lemon Odds and Nada Odds

Other sources of Kia Soul reliability information provide only averages, which can conceal as much as they reveal. So we also report the percentage of Kia Souls with no repairs at all in the past year and the percentage of Kia Souls that are lemons (required three or more repair trips in the past year). These figures might surprise you.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to closely track Kia Soul lemon odds as the cars age. Others can be over a year behind. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Kia Soul has been recently.

Kia and Hyundai deservedly are darlings of the car industry now. But even in 2010, Kia still was shedding their old "I could not afford a Japanese car" image. It was one of my biggest reservations about buying. Their image keeps on improving. see full Kia Soul review

I bought the car for the car, and not for the brand. When I bought my Honda Fit, part of that was because of the Honda brand. see full Kia Soul review
