    Hello all ,Do you drive a kia soul and if you do how well does it do on the highway, I have a45 min ride each way to work and back and was wondering how bouncy or how stiff or how jerky they are once you get used to it being a new car, i think they are really kool looking ,but i tend to have back flare ups and if it is to bumpy or hard hitting,or jarring it will have to be off my list, also how is the mpg on these thanks for your input

    I have never ridden in one, but though I think some of the KIAs are good looking, I couldn't drive a car whose name meant "Killed In Action", LOL. I think most small cars ride bumpier than large ones, but hopefully someone will give you a review soon.

    i did notice some older people driving them so i am hoping they arent that bad as i am only 41 but they still look neat and i could surley use the space in back for all my treasures[junk] that i like to bring home

    Quote:I am not familiar with that particular car, but we rented a Nissan Rogue for a recent 1,000+ mile road trip, and were very pleased with it. It handled well, gave a smooth ride, and plenty of room in the back for luggage and junk. We spent A LOT of time in it- 2 adults and 3 teenagers. Even having to spend the night in it one unfortunate night. (i don't recommend that) The gas mileage was decent as well. Good luck with finding the right car for you!

    We just got one on the 16th of July. "alien green" So far I am really enjoying it. I haven't done lots of highway driving yet but they have great deals on leases right now. Might be worth checking out.

    DH is in the automotive repair industry and does not recommend them as any kind of good deal. don't last, resale value is poor, etc. find a nice used honda civic, toyota anything, subaru. I drive a 97 Toyota Rav4 and with 208k it's still going!

    I drive a diesel VW Jetta wagon. It gets 42 MPG on the highway with an amazing ride. If you can swing it; it's the way to go.
