Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: The outside mirrors pivot down when you engage the car in reverse, to help you see the ground.
Cons: The car lacks directional signals on the outside mirrors.
Advice: Take a test drive and see for yourself, it's worth it!I purchased my Amanti one week ago, I have been facinated with the performance of the car. On my initial test drives (5 times) of the Amanti, I at first had considered buying the Sorento, because it was an SUV at a price I could reasonably afford even though I never test drove the Sorento. My Amanti has every option offered & available, I have received many compliments on its looks, the interior, Leather Convenience Package is the way to go with the sunroof, and the price I offered & accepted by the dealer. So far, I'm looking for a lot of fun from this vehicle, my only suggestion for future model, add directionals to the outside of the mirrors and, a self locking feature when you engage from park to drive. This is a winner and I am a real person
Pros: The stylish look. I can park my car with a group of other cars, but the crowd will stop and look in awe at mine
Advice: Always keep an open mind and keep in mind the perks.I had been a Town Can owner for over 20 years. I purcashed this Kia because I loved its looks and the way it felt while driving. As my wife stated, I have nothing less than what I had.
Pros: The memory setting for lumbar support, seat adjustment and power mirrors. Infinity 6-disc changer is the bomb!!!!
Cons: Cupholders do not hold 2 medium-sized drinks comfortably-too small. Trip Computer shows some of the same info on the instrument panel. Should have had a digital compass reading.
Advice: Test drive this baby and you will want to buy one. The price can't be beat for all you get as standard features.What a luxurious and plush ride! Handles very well. A very quiet ride. This is definitely a winner!! A great looking vehicle that states 'class'. Always turn heads from all age groups, including children under 10 years. The interior and exterior look fantastic. Leather seats are very comfortable and great looking. Most people don't know what kind of car it is until they see the name on the car. They compare it to a Bentley, Mercedes, Jaquar and smooth ride of a Lexus. LUV IT!!!
Pros: Interior and exterior fit and finnish.
Cons: I felt the front seats were alittle too hard.
Advice: For cruising the highways this is something to consider.I feel I got a good quality car with the safety and comfort features I was looking for such as: power driver and passenger seats, dual control A/C a vent to the rear seating, great leg and headroom and a smooth and quite ride. On top of that the 5 year or 60000 mile bumper to bumper warranty and the 10 year or 100000 mile power train warranty.
Pros: The interior
Cons: 16 inch rims
Advice: Go for it! The standard featuresThis car has the looks, the size, the feel of a great large sedan. Everyone stares as they see it coming and their mouths open wide when they see the Kia sign on the rear. My only complaint are the size of the rims, should have been 18 inch rims standard. I looked at this car for 2 months trying to convince myself not to purchase a Kia.The more I looked the better the deal looked and the car looked even better.
Pros: The exterior and interior stylng
Cons: the computer--if you're going to provide one, it should have Internet access!
Advice: Hurry!The car is triple aces! I bought one!
Advice: Upgrade sound system if possible.This vehicle looks like a Rolls and drove like one too. It was extremely comfortable and got up to 32 mpg on the highway. The stereo system was only fair though. Needed better speakers. Otherwise, this car drove fabulously.
