Claremore Driveway: Kia Soul Plus 2.0 CVVT

kiaOkay, so first things first. What does that 2.0 CVVT mean? Experts say she is a two-liter engine (even I got that), but more than that, she has continuous variable valve timing. That rotating camshaft gives you the power of a full race cam when you need it, then an economy setting for most of the time.

She is a little bigger than the Juke but I’ll still hold with the idea that if you’re traveling, you can either take the kids or the luggage to the airport but not both (at the same time).

These make perfect school cars because there is so much room when you fold the seats down. (They call that “versatility”.)

Also in consideration of the younger set, she has Sirius satellite radio, Bluetooth, and plugins for USB and a couple of others.

For mom and dad, she gets a five-star crash rating, gets really good mileage and these also have a bumper-to-bumper warranty from Kia up to five years or 60k miles.

New Edmunds list this equipment level Kia right at $19k. We’ve marked it way down from that. Fun kid car from Melton’s for a decent price.

My name is Robby Melton. I’m old enough to qualify for a “senior coke” at McDonalds and don’t have to work anymore, but find myself here on the lot most days because that’s where the cars are. That advertising slogan, “We sell cars for fun,” is not far off-base for my brother and me.
