I really want a bigger car!
I would really like a Kia Grand Carnival, but my husband has an issue with them because we know of 2 families that owned them and had a lot of trouble with them mechanically. I'm not sure what years they were, but I'm assuming there were some that were crappy and then they were improved. I hear nothing but rave reviews about the new ones, but we can't afford to buy a new car. Does anyone know what year they were improved? Thanks

I hate ours. It's the 2013 model. We've had a few problems with it and the service department is patchy at best.
I have no idea why they get such rave reviews to be honest. I cannot wait to get rid of it later this year.

we paid $36000 for a 2015 one- it was a demo with about 90km on it- its a new look with a bigger grill etc. it is amazing... brilliant for driving in the suburbs and on road trips. no issues so far!

Never mind. I've just been told it was a 2009 carnival not a grand carnival and she had no trouble with it. So obviously my husband is either confused or making up stories because he doesn't want one
