In recent months, numerous complaints from those who own or lease a 2021 Kia Soul SUV have been reported. Many of these concerns center around powertrain issues, including loud noises coming from the engine and transmissions that shudder or lose power while in motion. Although Kia has issued one safety recall concerning improperly heat-treated piston oil rings, many Kia customers have not been able to understand or fix their persistent powertrain issues.
According to the owner of a 2021 Kia Soul SUV, the vehicle was traveling at highway speeds when the car started to make loud noises. The engine seemed to decelerate and lose power, but then the car accelerated without the driver pressing on the gas pedal. When the driver took the vehicle to the dealer, they recommended a complete transmission replacement, even though the car had very few miles on it. Other reports of engines shutting off while in motion have been reported, with many Kia customers expressing concern over the vehicle’s safety.
