2001 Kia Carens LX 1.8 petrol from Malawi
A car like this should be withdrawn from the market, and refunds made to the unfortunate buyers
The car cannot work months without a fault.
I have practically changed every part, including head cylinder and master brake, absorbers and spiral rings, engine mounting etc! I'm always at the garage.
Now I am dealing with a gear problem.
I regret ever buying it, because I have spent more money than the cost of the car.
The car is very beautiful, but highly fragile.
Door handles for instance, are made of plastic, not steel.
Parts are scarce and expensive.
I never enjoyed it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
