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.
Pros: Seat Warmers
Cons: Initial acceleration is somewhat sluggish
Advice: Ask to drive it for 24 hours and you will never be the same.Dealer let me have the Amanti for 2 days stating that if I kept it overnight I would buy it. On that day they were wrong due to the deal was not good enough for us to buy. Less than 30 days later they wanted another chance to quote and the numbers were right. In the end they were right, I wanted it because it was the best luxury car I have ever drove for the price. Modeled after the Mercedes and the quality is equal.
Pros: Overall comfort and finish
Cons: No digital compass or automatic door locking when under-way.
Advice: Take it on the highway/freeway not just around the block, you'll be surprisedWe knew at first look that this car was different than others. when we test drove it we were sold!
Pros: styling and quietness
Cons: would have added a vinyl roof and compass
Advice: if you try it, you'll buy it I did !Loved the look on my wife's face as she test drove the car. Once behind the wheel myself, we were both both sold on this car. A winner... head turning quotient priceless... fit and finish 1st class all the way.
