Amanti Problem
By D.Cummings on


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


Bought used w/6970 mi.on it(told it was a salesman's who leased a new one).Got home & on parking in driveway noticed light on dash,brake light was out! Went back it was replaced, but this was just the start!!Have since replaced 17 bulbs on this car!!! Car was checked & was told nothing wrong,it's normal on Kias,& there's a lot of electronics on the vehicle.Each time nothing wrong is found, it costs me $92,so much for the warranty!! Lightbulb replacement cost $35-$40,since you can't get to them w/out removing half the frontend. Have had bottom of seats,bushings,rear support brackets and shifter all replaced, all taking 2 visits to do,as have to wait for parts! I'm upside down & have to keep.

Best Features

stereo system(6cd),leather, sunroof,styling Least favorite - Hankook tires, going on second set with only 52,700 mi on 50,000 mi tires.No way to call Hankook, only can contact via email.Dunn Tire has told me they won't do anything until 2/32(mine 4/32) before they do anything.

Worst Features

mpg,build quality(mechanical,electrical), more support from Kia Motors
