"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!"

"First car I've ever owned. It was passed down to me through my parents. For an '05 kia its extremely reliable. I've never had problems with it. The only issues I had were because, I was driving terribly and I got in an accident. Pros: Very comfortable, quiet, easy on the eyes, even though it only has 200 bhp the engine responds very well when put to the test. Cons: MPG is quiet terrifying (on average I get around 15 MPG city), brakes could be better"

"I purchased my 04 Amanti 13 months ago, The thing was almost brand new inside and out. It has the premium sound system and all the bells an whistles minus the roof option and spoiler. I received my Disability and was looking for a car, my mom talked me into getting this car for a pretty decent price and it had 86k miles on it. The previous owner were snow birds, Migrating with the warm weather in and out of Yuma AZ. I reluctantly purchased this car cause my brother who is a mechanic said he wants one of these cars in the worse way. I got it and I tell you what, It has impressed me every step of the way. The handling is amazing, one of the most responsive vehicles i have ever driven ( and thats after being a mechanic myself for over 10 years ) and so roomy inside. I am 6" 5' and I fit inside very comfortably and my daughter who is 5" 6' fits just as well with the power seats. This car has impressed me and I would highly recommend this car to anyone who wants a very reliable and luxurious car for cheap."

"It was a toss up between the Amanti and the Toyota Camry XLE. Both vehicles were feature laden, but the Amanti had a little more "personality" in that it doesn't look like every other car on the road. It stands out in a good way amongst the competitors who all seem to look alike. And options....my Amanti has them all. The chrome wheels make such an appearance difference, as does the aluminum trim inside. I feel like I am in a limo. Which brings me to the ride. For those looking for a true boulevard cruiser the Amanti doesn't dissapoint. Quiet and comfortable, the ride is excellent. This is a well built luxury car that is priced right, especially pre-owned!"
