Purchased a Kia Soul + in May 2011 with one of the perks being gas mileage of 26/32MPG EPA rating. Bever got close to either receiving around 22 city and 27 highway with a combined 24-25MPG.

Then Kia offered rebates for all Soul owners of 2012-**** model years saying that 2011 Kia Soul's got advertised MPG to which I say BS. Traded in my gas hog Soul last month and went back to Ford and bought a Focus which so far gets exactly what the EPA estimates of 31 city and 38 highway consistently and a much better constructed automobile. Kia and as far as I'm concerned Hyundai have lost a customer forever and I deter as many people as I can from purchasing their vehicles saying that they do not deliver nor back up their vehicles when it comes time to fess up.

It's amazing that a 2011 Soul gives it's advertised MPG's but a 2012/2013 Soul does not although all three years mechanically are the same. May you die and not prosper.
