Is it just attention seeking? Will any company in the world replace car for alignment issues?

Going to a consumer court means that the owner can't drive his new car and will be stuck in litigation for a few months at least.

Worst case scenario is that Kia can prove that it isn't liable.
Best case scenario is that the root cause of the problem is fixed.

But that can be accomplished by pestering the dealer and Kia. Looks like the officials at Kia are already involved and know about the case.

Don't understand why people want to jump the gun and take matters to the consumer court. Cars are machines and can sometimes have an issue. But a thing like an alignment problem can be fixed.

Hope better sense prevails and Kia can find a solution to this problem quickly without inconveniencing the owner any further.

Test drove Carnival Limousine today, Huge vehicle with good handling, smaller turning radius and smooth Power delivery. Best place to be in the vehicle is in the Back seat. On road price in Nagpur is 42.XX lacs for Limousine variant.

Why not? If the car is one day old and has manufacturing defect which they are not able to resolve. Alignment may be a small issue but it may not be related to alignment at all. It could be related to inherent defect in chassis.

If Kia plays by legal rules and doesn't want to replace a lemon, owner has all rights in the world to demonstrate and go to consumer court. I am a Seltos owner and know the Kia service very well. Once you have booked car with them, you are a liability for them and once delivered, they don't know you.

Why is it this even a news? Carnival is a large MPV whereas the Fortuner is a SUV – comparing two segments for just news value. And then in the body of the article Fortuner changes to Innova!

Can senior bhpians/experts please provide view if the issue raised could be just one-off and can be ignored, or something to wait and watch more before proceeding with the delivery.
Its huge money on the table and honestly don't want to take chances, my understanding was it is tried and tested product, and with all this now concern is more on the turn around of the issue rather than issue itself.
Going to hold my booking, wait and watch on the issue. Have been told by Kia officials that the next allotment will be after 3 months due to long waitlist. Since no other alternative, have no other option but to wait. :(

I do not believe the alignment issue is a serious one .Moreover we do not know the entire story.We are only hearing one side of it.

I saw Carnival in person on road. I must admit Kia is on a roll & knows what they’re upto. Carnival looks extremely appealing with its sheer size & luxury that exerts through its looks itself.

If Innova is a yacht, Carnival is set to become the cruise on the ocean of MPV’s.

Regards

RV

The KIA Carnival was displayed at a certain club over the weekend. I checked out the static display as best as I could. While the sales staff had pathetic knowledge the car it self seemed very well appointed internally. This was the top spec version. Good leather, carpets & finish. Dashboard design was appealing and balanced. Only the faux wood glossy finish seemed a notch below - but I have a bias against glossy finishes. It has real leg room for the third row and still has more luggage space than an Innova. I liked its looks overall. Have not driven it so cant comment on that.

Is Kia dispatching all Carnivals with MRF tyres?! Saw a video on youtube that shows the limo version comes with 235/65R18 MRF tyres.

Yes, it is MRF WANDERER for all variants, any issue with that?

I went to the Kia showroom in Noida.

I loved the spacious, soft and broad front seats, however I found the middle row seats to be quiet low. Especially when compared to the front row.

Anyone else think so?
