Overall, I am happy with the car except for a couple of problems I thought should'nt have appeared in a factory fresh car. The problems include squaking noises of the sliding doors, erratic fuel meter, a small crack on the automatic gear button and rough back wiper.Anyway, the problems have been rectified by the Naza service centre.

Carnival 2002 2.5V6 Manual
Excellent ride. Drives like a dream. Size - large enough to fit a circus. Value for money.
Lacks low end grunt. Don't drive it like a sports car and you'd be right.
Bloody big - hard to park.
Steering a bit on the vague side.
Model review is the Australian Carnival 2002 2.5V6 Manual A$32,000

Overall a bad buy
We took delivery of our car in 1999 from Naza Motors.
The quality of fit and finish was quite poor, and a lot of electronics stopped working after a year.
The major blow came in 2002, when our service advisor told us that the the radiator had engine oil in it and had caused major engine damage.
We complained, and the car was kept for three weeks for warranty repairs
Naza was courteous but inefficient, and if it was not for our constant pressure, they would have charged us RM 10 000 for the repair.
We sold our Kia in 2002, and went back to the Honda brand. We will not buy another Kia again.Re

kia carnival atau kia ria, saya sangat berpengalaman dengan kereta yang akan membuat and jadi gila. Bayangkan saya pakai 2 1/2 tahun kena overhoull, engin masuk air, radiator masuk minyak. kalau saya tak bagi tekanan sudah pasti saya kena bayar RM10,000.00 at last kena bayar 3,000. sekarang kia ria sama sahaja.

Naza Low Quality
The pathetic word is best describe for those buy Naza car coz Naza car is one of the lowest quality car compare to the rest. I can say teir level is like proton and I have no confident at all with all the Naza car till i die. Despite years given, there is no improvement at all and thats why their price is far more cheaper than the rest. Given the cheaper price, most of its car can only stand for abt 3 yrs and fuel comsumption is damn high. Dunno how their technology can bypass the quality control?
