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


Ive been in Cadillac's, Lincolns, Toyota (Lexus), and Honda's many times before, but I've yet to come across a better car than the Kia Amanti. The interior is true luxury & the exterior styling turn heads everyday we drive our car. My Amanti out the door was less than $18,000 and we are amazed at the level of refinement in this car. Interior design and quality are at the Mercedes, VW, and Jaguar levels & are far above most domestic and foreign makes. The 3.5 liter engine is powerful, yet a little thirsty, & performs with the 5 speed auto transmission well. The trunk is huge as is passenger room and storage. Handing on the road is controlled & plush. One drive & you'll buy the Amanti.

Best Features

The dual climate control works well, the seat controls are great, and the radio/cruise control controls on the steering wheel are great and lit at night. All power, alloy rims, ABS, and integrated fog lamps are standard. You wont believe all the luxury you get for the money. We saved $9,000 off!

Worst Features

Improve mpg (we currently get 23 mpg on mixed driving) which isn't too bad for a 4,000 lb car. Use Michelin Tires instead of Kumo's, other than that this car is a winner!
