Lousy ride & quality
By herb45 on
2008 Kia Amanti 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)
I totally love this car on a trip, but take it in the city, and the ride is harsh & lumpy, to say the least. The dash rattles are everywhere at this point, so I just turn up the stereo. The hwy mileage is very good. The brakes are terrible, and the transmission lurches when cold !
Infinity stereo, sunroof, power
Better build quality & ride! For a 31,000 car, you have to do better to compete with other cars in this class. This will be my last Kia !
Agreed. The suspension on this sled makes it very intolerant of sudden bumps and potholes. The roads here in California are total dog crap- but sometimes one will discover nice, flat lanes (usually on a just resurfaced road) and this mama just HUMS.
But city streets? PFFT!!
