#4 - Service Brakes problem of the 2013 Kia Motor Soul
The car was a 2013 Kia Motor Soul. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was KNDJT2A69D_. Brand new car purchased 04/06/13 and has 2900 miles and brakes squeak. Brakes have been squeaking since may but unable to leave it due to long periods of waiting for car. Was told by service manager that brakes are glazed and its common and happens and they will deglaze but it will keep happening because its just the brakes. I have owned and driven many cars and never had this problem prior to this vehicle and the van I have that is also manufactured by the same parent company and had the same problems. I was told that it glazed because my van was heavy but this new car is very small and light. A customer in the waiting area said he has never heard of glazing and worked on cars for 30 years. I believe that these cars made from Hyundai/kia are made with cheap parts that have to be replaced often and thats how the make up for cheaply sold cars. I need help figuring out how to fix this problem. This issue happened on July 3, 2013.
#5 - Service Brakes problem of the 2013 Kia Motor Soul
The car involved is a 2013 Kia Motor Soul. The VIN of this vehicle is KNDJT2A63D_. During braking and hitting small hole in road I noticed the brakes skipping and brake pedal jumping up and down as if it was a power defect. I had the same effect happen after bad rain and approaching a red light the car skipped to the stop. When it snowed out the brakes really skipped made noise and seemed to slip and would not stop. I figured the car was new or the brakes are adjusting kind to speed but now know there is something wrong. March is the first whole month I own the car and this is time to call the dealer and get this figured out. There was witness in the car on 2 of 3 occasions. It was Thu., Feb. 28, 2013 when this service brakes issue occurred.
#6 - Service Brakes problem of the 2012 Kia Motor Soul
The car was a 2012 Kia Motor Soul. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is KNDJT2A63C_. The brakes on all four wheel are "extremely" sensitive. This is not brakes grabbing, it is the the slightest pressure on the brake pedal brings braking system on "hard". In a panic stop situation it is very difficult to control the light touch to the brake pedal without over braking. The deal said this is normal. I say bs, this isn't my first new car. In a nut shell, the braking system is to sensitive making it difficult to control correct stopping distance. This issue happened on 03/20/12.

#9 - Service Brakes problem of the 2010 Kia Motor Soul
The car was a 2010 Kia Motor Soul. While driving on I-95 in south florida I had a difficult time getting my 2010 kia Soul to stop during a panic stop situation. I am over 210 lbs. And had to put every ounce of strength I have to get the car to stop. I am 63 and have been driving since 15 and never had a car react like this kia. It has 4-wheel disc brakes. If debbie was driving we would have ended up on the rear deck of the car in front of us. Debbie is small and would not been able to push as hard as I did. I took the car to the dealer and they could not find anything wrong. I would like to make you aware of this problem (braking issues) because I certainly need a car which will stop on command. I talked to a young girl here in nashua who owns a 2011 kia and she told me she thought there was something "wrong" with her brakes also. It is very scary when a car won't stop like it should. Thank you for listening to my complaint. This issue happened on Jan. 15, 2011.
