    Maz, I only ever half fill mine, but I'm TOTALLY impressed by the fuel economy. I had a VT Commodore before and that chews it compared to the bigger, roomier Kia!

    Fuel Economy is pretty good in Carnivals, unless you really fill it will people or luggage, or go up and down hills.

    They dont have a lot of power when full, or for going up hills, and in these times it chews the fuel and can drive a bit sluggish. For general driving, its pretty good. A 2003 model shouldn't have all the mechanical problems either!!!

    Congrats on your new car, I hope you love it!!!

    Hi Well A Lot Of Us Cant Afford Much So Im Thnking Of The Ba Wagan With The Seats In The Back . Its Modern Low Kms Reliable And U Can Over Take Any Thng Really Lol. They Are Low But No Different To The Oddesey I Think. And For Us We Would Only Need That One Extra Seat When Hubby Is Travelling With Us . So Most Of The Time We Wouldnt Use Them Can Just Fold Them Down .

    We have a 04 Toyota V8 Landcruiser(8 seater)...love it although it chews through the juice...although it has a gas conversion on it so it evens it out. We also have an 03 Mitsubishi Magna Wagon which we got 2 seats installed in the very back so it became a 7 seater. I love that one too...although its a bit smaller than the cruiser.
