Malaysians do not need a visa for social visits to any Schengen countries (of which Greece is one) for a period up to 90 days within a 6 months period. We got our passport stamped both on entry and exit to evidence the number of days we were in the Schengen zone.
Carnet de Passages en Douane is also not required for Europe for temporary importation of personal vehicle.
