The Look and Feel of Elegance at an Affordable Price by Salt Lake City Sugar Gal on 06/09/2011. Trim: 2008 Kia Amanti Sedan, Owned 2 years.
1
Pros: I drove a '91 Lincoln Town Car right off the showroom floor--best car I ever owned--but at 98K miles had to replace in June 2009. No way I'd have the $ for the new Lincoln sedan, but spotted an Amanti and it evoked instant thought of the car I couldn't afford. Found a 2008 with 7K mi., bought it immediately and have delighted in it ever since. Sweet look of an elegant car, great responsive handling, zero problems to date, and enough comfort, bells and whistles to make this cost-conscious car buyer happy.with a pretend Lincoln sedan. I'm almost used to the foreshortened front end when I park!
Cons: I've had this lovely 2008 pearl white Kia Amanti for 2 years next week and there is nothing to dislike whatsoever.
Overall review: This car is worth a very close look for its value, appearance, and overall drive-ability.

South Korea's Luxury- Inexpensive Towncar by Michael J. McDonough; Arizona on 11/14/2010. Trim: 2008 Kia Amanti Sedan, Owned less than 1 year.
1
Pros: Exceptional high quality for a reasonable price. This car has a luxury ride and most upscale options. Gas milage is 20/25 with a great pick-up from a 260hp, quiet V-6. From the front it looks like a jaguar; from all other directions is looks like a Mersades-Bentz. Huge trunk has an covered opening that could store skis. Front and back seating areas are huge and very, very comfortable.
Cons: Does not have highway/map screen.
Overall review: Excellent in every way

A Really Great Value by Hal from Idaho on 12/02/2009. Trim: 2008 Kia Amanti Sedan, Owned 1 year.
1
Pros: Most everything - had a chance to rent one in Orlando, FL for 10 days. Decided to buy on in eary 2009 - Runs great; gets good gas milage ( up to 29mpg on highway and usually 21mpg around town). Has all the bells & whistle needed to be a Luxury model automobile. Terrific acceleration when needed. Runs smooth & quiet on the road.
Cons: SO FAR NOTHING - IT'S BEEN A REALLY GREAT VALUE
Overall review: I would highly reccomend this vehicle - It's been better than other large luxury cars I have owned including Lincoln Town Car and Olds Bravada etc.
