Review of the 2005 Kia Amanti

  • It's not the fastest or the most stylish car on the block, but Kia's Amanti is a solid alternative for shoppers who want a large sedan that's safe, well equipped and reasonably priced.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Class-leading amenities, spacious interior, long warranty, good value for the money.

  • Cons

    Weak V6 considering its size, doesn't register very high on the prestige meter.

  • What's New for 2005

    Heated seats have been added to the optional Leather package, and a tire-pressure monitor has been added to the optional Convenience…

Vehicle: 2005 Kia Amanti 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

this car is amazing...has over 150,000 and going strong...nothing has been done. just routine maintance. I excpect to get another 100k out of it...!!! well built and amazing ride!! luxury at its best!!!! sure beats a caddy ...lol I love it...I think it all depends on the driver. if you keep it all maintained and oil changes, don't drive like your going to a fire!!! and respect the car it will respect you forever!! :-)

Vehicle: 2005 Kia Amanti 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Got stuck on vacation in Florida with less than 5,000 mi. and replaced the transmission. New transmission goes "zzzzzz" between first and second gear. Kia, from dealer to national manager, refuses to replace or fix it. Dealer says all Amanti's go "zzzzzz." Yeah, right. Engine light goes on repeatedly and have had it reset more than 8 times. Dealer won't replace sensor. Dome light went out after 10,000 mi. Bumper finish is pealing. Now with 60,000. Transmission slips regularly. Stay far away from this lemon model and Kia, in general. Awful customer service. Never again.




Kia...car paint job is a

Vehicle: 2005 Kia Amanti 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Bought this car 4 years ago; wanted a luxry car but not the price. Saw this beauty and took it home. Had the car a month and the paint on the front bumper started to bubble and the paint clear coat started chipping. Took it too the dealership and was told there was nothing they could do and it was my fault. Took it too a paint and collision shop and I was told when it bubbles it is bad paint & clear coat from Kia. Went back to talk to the manager and still refused to fix my paint. Then the electrical need to be replaced and the fuel injectors went bad and air conditioner went out. Stay away if you can! Kia doesn't care about your or there cars.
