2004 Kia Amanti 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Wanted a Lincoln LS but after seeing this car (actually my friend T.Y. saw it 1st & pointed it out) and test driving it, I was sold. Bought it used 1-owner who took excellent care of it. I like my 1998 Mercury Sable GS better as far as smooth riding but not complaining about it. I constantly receive compliments on it from young & old.


Best Features

The style of it, some mistaken it for a Jaguar and others a Mercedes or Lincoln.


Worst Features

The suspension and mpg.

Review

I love my car but have had several problems with the "AIR BAG" light coming on. It has been in the shop 4 times for this with the last time last week. They said it was due to my low battery but that yet it isn't even a year old. Well, the airbag light came on again yesterday. Very frustrating! Not too happy with service here in El Paso but cannot do much since they are the only KIA dealer. Don't want to trade it in since it is paid off and I really love my car. Has anyone else had problems with the AIRBAG light?


Best Features

Love everything about my except that it is black and hard to keep clean. Handles great and turns a lot of heads!


Worst Features

Gas mileage could be better. KIA service needs improvement.

Review

Luv this car, I traded my 1999 Bruick Regal for her. She has give me only one problem, the tires. She rides comfortable around the city, I am about to make 2 road trips this summer. It is the only car I have owned that I have not yet have to put in the shop for any mechanical problems.


Best Features

Quality, the ride, the spacious interior(have 2 teenager and they don't fight no more because they don't have to be by each other. But my favorite is the stylish way she looks.


Worst Features

The mpg. I am hoping that I don't have to put a lot of money in for gas on the road trips. 18mpg is low for a 1500 mile trip (3000) Will see how she does, if she does good, have in mind to get a newer model.

Review

I've owned this car for almost 4 years. In town and on the road it's been nothing but comfortable, reliable, smart-looking and eye-catching. I've had lots of compliments. I've done regular maintenance and NEVER had a problem. For a 63 year old.....it's the bomb. Some have thought I was driving a Lincoln. Go ahead and think I paid 40,000,,,,,I didn't even pay half that! Before I drove only Honda Accords.


Best Features

Comfort Reliability Looks


Worst Features

I need a GPS, heated seats, heated outside mirrors, automatic trunk closure and a tall, dark, handsome man beside me! Maybe in the future?

Review

Bought it 2nd hand with 125k on it, engine light stays on, presently at dealership to have it checked. Initially mirrors did not function properly but dealership replaced the console in arm rest, ok now. Love the car, gas mileage could be better however it is a heavy car with a big v6 engine. Could have come with a compass & gps system, have added both myself, with this said it comes with everything else you could possibly need.


Best Features

Ride, interior, exterior, colour, looks, comfort, responsive accleration, manual transmission as well as auto, trunk size, tilting mirrors when in reverse, auto wipers, much much more.


Worst Features

Gas mileage, compass, gps, cup holders too close, clunking noise passenger rear when going over speed bumps, sounds like its an accelerator control arm problem but the part #'s for this part are different in Canada & they are having trouble going through the extended warranty company without it?
