About Kia Amanti

What if you could have all the luxury trappings of a $50,000 sedan in a stylish four-door costing about half as much? That's the promise Kia's Amanti offers, albeit without the high resale value and premium-sedan status of the higher-priced choices. For those unconcerned by such trivialities, the 2009 Kia Amanti delivers a smooth ride, decent handling, a huge rear seat and a competent V6 engine. Among the Amanti's long list of standard features are heated side mirrors, one-touch up/down power windows, an eight-way adjustable power driver's seat and a power sunroof. Compared to a Buick Lucerne, Lincoln MXZ and Chrysler 300, the Amanti appears a tempting alternative, and with its standard 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, concerns about long-term reliability are put aside.

"The car is great. Has a luxury feel to it, drives smoothly and, because of it's large size, makes you feel safe while driving it. Thus far, in 3 years, I have had not one issue with the car. Pretty impressive. Also, as a music lover, the stock sound system is amazing. Really fun to drive."

"I was skeptical about buying a Kia, but I did it anyway because I fell in love with the car. After owning it for 5 years, I still love it. I've owned Mercedes and other luxury cars in the past, and this one is better quality. I put a lot of miles on it but have had no problems with the quality of the car. I've never had to do anything to it other than replace tires and after catching a rock on the freeway I had to replace the a/c condenser but that was no fault of the manufacturing. This car has every bell and whistle, I still like the style of it, the inside looks just like a Mercedes with the burl wood but unlike the Mercedes the pieces have never fallen off. It was still under warranty when I bought it in '07 but I never had to take it in for anything. Buy a Kia, they are great cars for the money (I don't know about the lower-priced models but the top of the line models are first class.)"

"A lot of bang for the buck! Went to dealer to purchase a used Lincoln, but saw the Amanti on the lot and had no idea what it was. It has all of the aesthetics of the luxury car models in its class, without the price tag. I have owned it for 7 years now, and still love it. It has been so dependable and easy to maintain."
