2002 Kia Carens GX 2.0 LPG from Korea
Reliable and versatile with a reasonable price tag
Very little so far. However I seem to be changing the spark plugs far more often than my previous gasoline-fueled car. Probably a result of running on LPG fuel.
Generally a very decent vehicle to drive. I would like to see a more powerful engine under the hood. Especially since KIA boasts it can tote five Westerners comfortably. My largest complaint is about the ground clearance. Always scraping bottom with mid-size to large pot-holes or speed bumps. Other than that, it has been a real crowd pleaser for a budget MPV.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
