Pros

Very roomy... way more than Dodge/Chrysler vehicules for leg and feet and when using kids seats (have tree kids seats in mine). Strong enough to enjoy a bit of acceleration, I'm pulling a 19 feet RV of 3000 pounds and get to 60miles/hour easily. Had difficulty to reach 60 miles/hour with Mazda MPV pulling same RV.

Cons

Fuel economy is the biggest drawback. Very consuming. I would say 20 miles per gallon. Driver's seat has a firmness adjustment that is noisy. For any reason, you adjust it, then a week later it's noisy like an old mattress. You put the adjustment to the other way, then after a week, it restarts, so you play with it every week.

Not The Most Beautiful But Very Pleased With Its Utility — Replaced a Mazda MPV that was a total loss after a shelter fell on it and I would say that I prefer the Kia to the Mazda even if the Mazda was a bit better looking. It's roomier, more powerfull, trunk is bigger than Mazda also. I own for two years (2008 bought in early 2013) and had no major issues and been pulling an RV with it while travelling 5 to 6 people in it. Would reccommend any time. Only drawback is fuel economy.

Great Minivan — Like it all - its a minivan - but is has great power and lot of room and options! Standard LX features include 16-inch wheels, roof rails, keyless entry, full power accessories, rear parking sensors, front and rear-air conditioning, a fold-down table between the front seats and removable second-row captain's chairs. Also standard are 60/40-split fold-flat third-row bench seats, cloth upholstery, a tilt steering wheel with audio controls, cruise control, Bluetooth and a six-speaker CD/MP3 stereo with satellite radio and a USB/auxiliary input jack.

it's a diesel

It's A Minivan! — well it's not mine, belongs to an organization i work for.. been with it for 2 months, and just cant stop loving it. the diesel is loud but has enough power... a little bit of vibration in the cabin because of the diesel.. the design though, i think it's drop dead gorgeous.

Kia Carnival — It is actually badged as a Carnival in Australia. It is a big car for ittle $$$. I love how it drives, smooth, reliable. It feels like i am driving a sedan. It has all the room I need for my family and when i need to it has the capacity to carry a lot around once the seats are folded down into the floor.
