"Loved my sunroof and sound system in the car. Two areas of displeasure was the paint peeling off front and back bumper and wearing on interior of doors, the arm rest."

"I've owned this car longer than any previous vehicle-why? It's a great car-other than scheduled service-only minor repairs. It's very comfortable-gas mileage around 28 mpg on the hiway. And the amazing thing-everything works-I mean power windows, seat heaters, etc. Never needed repair."

Pros: "Great reliability and power. Fun to drive."

Cons: "Needs USB port and a few more gadgets."

"I purchased my KIA AMANTI in 2010 with fewer than 18,000 miles. I now have 230,000 miles. I have replaced tires and windshield wipers and brakes & regular oil changes. I drive the heck out of my cars with some city driving but mostly trips in excess of 200 miles. This car has GREAT get up and go with plenty of room. I like the shifter where I can shift gears myself. I do that frequently. I wish they still sold this model. I wish it had more gadgets but in 08 they were not that popular. USB input would be nice. I'm selling it only because of the high milage."

"When we started looking for a Chrysler 300 in 2006, we didn't like the interior, but saw the Kia Amanti at the dealership, and loved it, except that it didn't have AWD. The Salesman assured us that it had ESC, which would probably get us home if caught in a snowstorm. ESC was not on this car, as on most KIAs, so we tried to give it back. Not a chance. We were given Spider spikes instead, and fortunately, because of the drought, never had to use them. Everything else about the car is ideal, which we realized after we started thinking about a new car!"
