I have just bought a 59 plate Kia Soul 2 1.6 diesel. I have just had to
take it in to my Kia dealership to have the air con re-gas (at 18 months old
it seems a bit too soon) no leaks found.


I also have a big problem with being able to tune the radio into any MW
stations and the FM stations are not that good. The dealership has checked the
connections and have found no problems but have emailed Kia for assistance.


As I am still waiting for a reply from them I was wondering if anybody
else have any problems with the radio and any possible suggestions to fix the
problem.


Thanks<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" />

The aircon needs regular use to keep the seals lubricated... switch it one once a week regular to keep it in check and it shouldnt need re-gassing.

Cant help with the radio tho....i only listen to the radio occassionally and dont have a problem - usually listen to CD or Memory stick - sorry.

The Soul has been in and out of Kia Burnley Dealership 3 times for the
radio. After 11 hours they have finally fixed it a new aerial amp.<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" />

I asked them to check the air con again as it is still not getting cold
enough. They have checked it again and are now going to fit a new condenser.

the soul aircon isnt as cold as some cars i have had.....others could ice up the inside of the windscreen... the souls isnt as intense as that, but it gets cold enough to be comfortable.

I had a problem,or so I thought, with the lack of cold on my aircon however with running it over a week or so flat out the temp is much colder now than it was and it seems ok.I get quite cold air within a minute of turning it on now.
