Pulling TT w/ Kia Soul

Recommended Posts

We have a Kia Soul Base AT. From talking to Kia Soul forum members in England, Kia has no problem installing a hitch. Here in the states Kia says you can't and hint that doing so would void the warranty. Anyone have any experience towing with a Soul? I'm waiting for a response to a post about towing a small TT on the Kia Soul forum.

Anyone have any experience towing with a Soul?

 

You could always check your certification label to see if it's even feasible. I know they tout a 2000# tow capacity, but I wonder what the axle ratings and such look like. You would have to do the same calculations as any other tow vehicle, but I think you would be really hard pressed to find any trailer that would fall under 2000# fully loaded. Maybe something like a Tear Drop or similar might be doable.

 

Did you, perhaps, mean "towing a Soul" rather than "towing with a Soul"?

I pulled my side x side with my wife's 2013 Kia Soul+, auto trans.

 

It weights about 800 lbs plus the trailer. It pulled it pretty good.

 

I tried pulling it with my 2012 base model with standard trans. It pulled it, but I was afraid of damaging the clutch in it.
