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

Review

Bought as rentacar with 12k mi and 1 yr old, we added 100k warranty for about $2k. Drive daily and on road trips with 2 small kids (now at 52k). Very good performance (no warranty repairs, just maintenance) and xlint comfort. Interior construction better than a Benz and just as quiet. Large trunk, durable leather, icy AC. Lots of looks when we take it into Mexico - they don't have these yet - but most people mistake it for a Jag in states.

Favorite Features

Clean look, good leather, comfy ride, great reliability (no repairs), nice bonus features like sunroof, well built. It's my wife's but I actually am very happy with it - paid half of Benz price without all the maintenance I had before.

Suggested Improvements

Only drawback is poor mileage if you're a lead foot - my wife gets 17 in city. I can get 22 mixed driving (but up to 28 mpg at 65 mph on flat land). Spongy ride (not a sports sedan) and spongy gas peddle.
