What a shame they dropped the Amanti
I am 65 yrs. old so I have owned all kinds of cars both new and used and I was never really happy until now. I have bought american cars for decades until they became to expensive. My wife says new cars are the only way to go. Anyway in 2008 I bought a car I had never heard of and a dealer I knew very little about except for all the people I spoke to . They raved about their 2008 Kia Amanti so I saw oe in a dealer and fell in love with the design. Anyway we bought this Amanti and I am thrilled I did. My car has super confort and a very quiet interior. It has great pick up and a 3.8. v6 engine. I may never trade it. My wife bought a 2010 Kia Sorento . We love both.
Amanti upgrade
We just traded in my wife's 06' Amanti for an 08'. We were very happy with her 06', but I was a bit uneasy that hers was no longer under warranty since it had just over 50K on it. Her father has the same exact car and was beginning to have some issues (catalytic converter) and had already had the lower end of the engine replaced - all under warranty. We found the 08' with 16K so it still has the remainder of the 5yr/60K warranty left. The car is a completely different animal from it's predecessor! Love the new ride, power and interior style! I also would have liked to see real metal inside rather than the plastic on the interior finish. Just ordered the Opirus numbers and oval badge!
3rd & final update
this is a follow-up to my 17000 mile review.after taking my car to the dealer in chesapeake,the service department found that my car came with m&s tires,which have a stiffer compound.can anyone else tell me if their car came with the same tire? khumho solus 225 kh16 m& corporate tells me they can't understand why these tires are on my car,and will be calling me this coming week to help find a solution.i will be greatful for anything they can highway mileage still peeks between 29- anyone having problems with kia corporate,i find that quite hard to believe,as they have always been very helpful to me.
