I wanted a reasonably priced car with all the comfort features of a luxury sedan. The Amanti, while not the best on fuel economy, is a great driving car with all the bells and whistles. The warranty can't be beat. Resale value is still to be determined but it is a car I think you will keep for many years.
Interior design and features. Everything but heated seats.
Make traction control a standard feature instead of an option on the luxury package only.
