Ask Smithy Xtra Kia Carnival engine fault
Kia never recalled the Carnival, instead preferring to rebuild engines as needed. The problem was with the head gaskets of the early cars and Kia’s approach was to replace the head gaskets when the engine was rebuilt, but some owners report having the rebuilt engine fail as well. That suggests the fix wasn’t altogether successful.Show more
Cause of high fuel consumption in Grand Carnival?
If you're using mostly it around town, as I suspect you are, the consumption is about what I would expect.
Kia's own claims for fuel consumption for urban (city) use is 15.1L/100km, and the driving range is a little over 500km, smack on what you say you are getting.
The average of combined urban (city) and extra-urban (country) is claimed by Kia to be 10.9L/100km.
The bottom line is that it's a big blob of a vehicle with a relatively large engine doing the work, that's not a recipe for fuel low consumption.Show more
Best $22,000 family car
You haven't said whether you want to buy new or second-hand, but with your requirements and just $22,000 to spend I would guess that you're looking for used model. My recommendation would be a 2010/2011 Kia Grand Carnival diesel. It would have the room you need, the economy you want, and it would be reliable.Show more
