2000 Kia Carnival LS 1.9 from Philippines
Very poor and not worth it
At 33,000 kilometers My timing chain broke.
2x replaced rotor discs.
Replaced brake pads every 5,000 kilometers.
Brakes rattles when braking.
Airbag light indicator goes on.
Steering oil pump always replaced.
Kia Carnival might be a good quality and comfortable car.
However the car should always be maintained for possible break outs in the parts and engine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I don't believe on what you have commented. Because we have the same model, I am very much contented with my Kia Carnival LS. Of course you have to regularly maintain your car. Any brand, even German brand, if you don't properly use it and don't regularly maintain it, it will definitely goes out of the way. My piece of advice is to use your car with proper care and regular maintenance like you take care of your self.
