I would and I've only had mine 2 months. The new ones are fantastic. When I've had this a while I'll probably upgrade to a newer one

With greatest of respect Chris You are still on your honeymoon period I thought just like you.
And having first one for 6 months bought a new one, which I had for 2 years I love the build quality 7 yr warranty
And the fantastic Diesel engines. But as I am getting on a bit the harsh ride got to me in the end and I changed.
But hey, there will be plenty of owners on here that are happy. Now if they had the suspension of the venga
(Prefer the looks of the soul) Which seems a much more comfortable ride who knows might buy another.

Bigger profile tyres make all the difference

Love the Soul even with my 18" wheels ,ride may be hard but it improves handling .Would I buy a new one ,I don't know as the higher price puts it up against some very good cars .

What Soul do you run ?

I have the Soul Tempest diesel 2010 reg and the ride is hard on that as the 18" wheels with the low profile tyres make it rather harsh but I think that it improves the handling .

A soul2 on 16" wheels I think. ride is exceptionally smooth.

Previous cars include a 20vt turbo Fiat Coupe and a Alfa Brera - very different than the soul.

The Tempest with the 18" wheels are not smooth , I have driven both and there is a big difference.

My last was a soul hunter with 18" alloys and was a hard ride.
