We got our Carnival last July (2022 Carnival SX in Canada), and Friday before last I started it and the check engine light came on and we got a message saying 'A possible condition with your Engine Control System has been detected.' The front driver side proximity sensor would also go off as soon as I would slow down lower than 10km/h, and if I turn it off with the button, it turns back on as soon as I got under 10km/h. I called Kia and initially they booked me in for the following Tuesday, as they were fully booked, but that if I felt it wasn't safe to drive to just bring it in and they would do what they could to get it in sooner. I ended up bringing it in not long after, as I was worried about the collision sensor potentially engaging the emergency braking system at higher speeds, which thankfully never happened. They were able to get it in near the end of the day and do a scan, and it was reporting that 2 cylinders were missfiring! They found that the ignition coils on 2 cylinders were faulty (they moved those coils to another cylinder to verify that was the issue, and saw the same results on the new cylinder). Kia got us into a rental until it was fixed, and we got it back at the end of the day the following Wednesday. (2 SKUs for the parts, 1 was in Toronto, the other was on the dock in Vancouver, which is why it took longer than a day)

As the Carnival is a very new vehicle, I was just wondering if anyone else had this issue? I suspect it's just a couple faulty parts, as there's no recall on it, and not a systematic issue.

You're fortunate to get into the dealership so quickly and to get the parts so quickly as well. Most people have to wait weeks due to high backlogs at the service centers low stock of parts.

Sounds like the ignition coils is a growing issue on this forum. Glad you got it diagnosed and fixed.

On the Facebook group, lots of people are having the throttle body freeze in cold weather. Also stories of rough idling and misfiring.
I’m waiting for mine and the stories are worrying.

Our 2022 Carnival LXS with 4,000 miles is reporting cylinder misfires P0300, P0301, P0302, P0303, P0305... made appointment at the dealership to troubleshoot issue.
