Default A few pics of the DD!

Well as some of you know I traded the WS6 in, and got a Kia Soul!

All BS aside, the thing is a perfect DD. Good gas mileage and can still haul parts around!

At least it isn't a Queerb (Cube). They just look odd. Nothing wrong with having a practical car.

IMO one of the ugliest new cars on the road today. Has nothing on the Cube, though.

But, as long as you are happy...

Thanks for the comments guys (good and bad). I put alot of thought into it, and this was a car I could see myself using for work, trips, and if I needed to haul something around (obviously can't be too big). It's quiet, smooth, and has more features than the TA had. I don't hate driving to work quite as much as I used to

I never thought I'd buy a soul, but it wasn't bought to impress people. It was bought to be something practical to put some miles on and had warranty if anything were to happen.

Honestly I think those Souls are pretty neat little vehicles. Like you said, its practical. When you want something to impress you got the z06. I wish I didnt have my truck and had something small to drive back and forth. $85 fillups get old fast and 16 mpg in town sucks. When you told me about getting a kia at first I almost laughed, lol, but it makes sense, even more since you probably got a really good deal on it. Congrats.

Nice little daily driver. I don't think it's bad looking at all. Runs on 87 octane...good mpg...great warranty.

Corvette and other race cars stay home more often now!

Those lights hanging on the c5 look like tears. I think that's a smart upgrade over the T/A.
