We spent 4 hours in a Kia dealership in Bourne yesterday. My husband has been driving around in a 1989 Volvo that has seen better days. It was time for something new...on a budget. We researched a bit, and decided to look at the Kia Soul. It is awesome...and way roomier than we expected. We picked alien green...cute car, cute color. The warranty is excellent. Safety rating is excellent. Love those side curtain air bags too.
