After Inspection
By mdfoster1 on


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


Okay, I had the Amanti go through a full used car inspection at the Kia dealership.
Cost $104.00.
Three items needed attention - Left and Right valve cover gaskets need replacing, and the rear main seal needs replacing.
Total cost for repairs by the dealership will be $1010.00.
Do I still love the car - Yes!
The leak must be a very small one because you cannot tell it has a leak by driving it and have not noticed oil leaking.
Will I get it fixed - Yes when income taxes come in next year. Can it wait til then - they said it could as long as I keep an eye on the oil level.
I paid $5000.00 for the car and NADA shows its value a little over $6000.00 so with the repair it will meet value.
