Just plain, excellent value...I hae NEVER enjoyed driving a vehicle as much as I have this Amanti. It has every luxury item that I would want, and, for the most part, a standard item for this model. Am, also, considering the purchase of the Rio 5 as a "toy" car for the short runs...

I'v owned the Amanti since Oct 2005 in snow country NYS and found nothing to complain about. The Amanti gets 5 stars on every aspect of design, engineeing, comfort etc.....priced below other mfg's cars with far lesser equip. Most some what negative reveiws by "professionals" is hog-wash.

Bettter than my Jaguar S type?

I just traded in my Jaguar S type, 4.0, eight cyl. for a 2006 Kia Amanti. Is the Amanti a better car than the Jag? No, but it comes awfully close for considerably less money. The luxury appointments, fit and finish are equal to the Jag. The Amanti has a different type of ride and handling, but is equaly comfortable. The interior appointments, guage and control placement are as good or better than the Jaguar. The Amanti doesn't have the tight suspension or precision handling the S type has. The Kia has the type of ride and handling a 70's or 80's vintage Lincoln has, comfortable, but much looser and softer than what I'm used to. Braking is a little softer on the Amanti. Obviously, the Amanti doesn't have the prestige of the Jaguar, but I was tired of paying $128.00 for an oil change and having to burn premium gas. All in all, the Amanti is a great car, highly under-rated, and provides all the luxury and safety of a car costing 2-3 times what the Amanti costs. Highly recommended vehicle for those seeking luxury at a sensible price! Love my Amanti.

I bought a used 2006 with 15K miles, now with 33K. Pros: Very comfortable road car with a smooth ride Quality materials and a nicely equipped base model This is a large car that doesn't feel like a behemoth Friends are amazed that this is a Kia - and at the ride The great feeling of not having spent what a used Avalon commands No service issues at 33k Better ride than the supercharged Buick that I traded Cons: Large car ride means low 20s highway mileage Opt for the ESC in any region with snowfall Dated audio system - no ipod/no satellite, poor am reception The exterior design is love hate - a nice looking car to most.

The BEST riding car I've ever owned...

by from Charlton ,MA on December 3, 2010

I've owned a number of "large" cars and this one is by far the most comfortable, quietest, and best looking for any money. Can't say enough!
