Hi, I took a 3-year 36k mile lease on a 2017 Kia Soul+ in August of 2017. Had the H/K Audio Package. I loved that car, but by April of 2019 when I did an early turn-in, it had 53k miles already. And only got 22 MPG average. Had to get out from negative equity before it got worse. I didn’t think I’d rack up miles so fast, I had figured 40-50k in 3 years... but an unforeseen change in jobs gave me a 100-mile round-trip commute 6 days per week (plus driving around in the community with special needs clients), until I could move (which also took longer than expected).
I got a 2019 Kia Niro LX with the Advanced Technology package in deep cerulean. Absolutely love it! Also, it’s the first time I chose a color; before I chose features and said “what do ya got on the lot w/ these features?”...

I’ve already added the cargo cover, all-weather floor mats, window visors, hood defector, cargo net, LEDs on every interior light, K&N washable engine air filter, LED license plate light, LED back-up light, LED fog lights, and LED headlights.

Looking to pick up roof cross-rails sometime, Niro cargo tray (currently using old one from soul... actually fits pretty well), window tint, front/rear mud flaps, possibly a hitch (for occasional light towing). I may even do the LED turn signals...
