Happy, But Not PERFECTLY Happy
By OhManti on


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


Contrary to some, I don't find the suspension loose or "floaty." The brakes are a bit too grippy for me. The ride's wonderfully pleasant, would be dead quiet if the air intake wasn't so loud. Posh enough, but cheap very scratchable finish on the interior glossy bits. Wish it had a compass; Love the computer and gobs of great gadgetry otherwise. Happy with accelleration, at the stoplight and for passing, don't mind the lessor V6. Love the front end, back end cloys, though I think the trunk's my favorite feature -- HUGE. CD changer slow loading. horn pathetic. blind spot in front. Saftey top notch. Eight way seats, but haven't got comfortable on long trips.

Best Features

Front end. Clean look under the hood. Infinity sound. Heated seats. Trip computer. Bright brights. Smooth ride and suspension! Whiplash head rests front and back. Cup holders in arm rest in back. Rear temp control has floor blowers for really QUICK summer cooling. Massive TRUNK!

Worst Features

Deaden air intake noise, having done so well on quiet interior, I cringe with every acceleration wishing it were perfect and this whir was gone. Compass on computer would have completed otherwise loaded gadgetry. better scratch resistant quality on on interior gloss. Larger alloys standard?
