I've been driving Kia cars since 1994 when I bought a Ford Aspire, built by Kia. Then a '97 Sephia which has given and still gives excellent service, but now requires a muffler and timing belt replacement. Also have a 2002 Rio which is 3 years old and has given perfect service with NO problems. Have also used extensively a 2002 Optima which is a wonderful car. The Amanti should be just as good with a lot more luxury.
Best thing for me is the ease of getting in and out of the thing. I'm a big man and the seats in the Amanti are higher and the doors are larger. Very comfortable car.
A built-n high-grade GPS would make an excellent car even better
