2005 Kia Amanti 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I purchased my car with 913 miles on it. It was primarily driven by the Kia manager where I purchased my vehicle. I have roughly 28,000 miles on my car and I am on my 2nd transmission. The new transmission is unfortunately not any better than the initial one. My 1st tranny was replaced at 22,000. I've brought it back to the dealership and told them about the new 2nd transmission slipping when starting up. Now with cold weather it's even worse and I'm actually afraid to drive it any long distances until I get this transmission remedied or get another new transmission. I'm very envious of the folks who have had good luck. I really love my Amanti, but it's sick at the moment.
Great stereo, comfortable leather seats, sunroof, great air conditioning system, tons of trunk space.
TRANSMISSIONS and it could get a little better gas mileage as previously stated by some of the other owners.
