2004 Kia Carnival LS 2.5 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
I love my Kia
The only fault I would say the car has, is the fact there are no back windows to roll down.
The car has run perfectly for 8 years from brand new. She has never missed a beat in the whole time I have owned her. Only the fact that I had an accident two days ago... she is off the road for major repairs, and even then, she took a major hit like an old car. The driver's seat broke in the rear end accident... which I don't understand... but she is a beauty.
Turning circle is not great, but she kicks into gear on the freeways really well... keeps up with most other cars.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hi, I own a KIA Carnival built Aug 2004 and passed compliance in Australia 1/2005.
I'm the second owner. The vehicle has 198000 on the speedo now. The only faults I have had are the starter motor, the thermostat housing and the thermostat pipes. Apart from that it goes great.
A great family car.

Just curious, I'm looking at buying a 2004 model, though the starter motor needs to be replaced. Should I still consider it, considering I don't know how much it'll be to fix it and if that'll be the only problem.
