Amanti problem
By Val Bill on
Vehicle
2005 Kia Amanti 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Review
My wife purchased the Amanti choosing it over a Buick or Honda due to it's driving pleasure. We enjoy traveling in the car and most of the use is on the open road. One problem has troubled us from early on. If the vehicle sits for a few days, the battery goes down. Multiple testing of the battery by Kia, and others, finds no problem. Having it towed in, 180 miles, resulted in replacing the "12 month" battery. ($180) Friends who have purchased an Amanti on our recommendation have reported the same problem. I doubt that the problem is fixed and expect it to re-emerge in the months ahead.
Favorite Features
Driving ease
Suggested Improvements
Seats are too firm for extended use. We have to use cushions. Put a higher quality battery when new. Service can be a problem. There are long distances between Kia service centers in the West.
