2004 Kia Amanti Owner Comments

problem #3

Amanti 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


On or about September 26, 2004, purchased a 2004 Kia Amanti. Since that time, the vehicle has undergone a multitude of problems, many of which Kia has been unable to fix. Since its purchase, the vehicle has exhibited air conditioning problems, electrical circuit problems, battery problems, water leaks, recurring engine light problems and, most recently, shaking and lurching issues which have rendered the vehicle unsafe to operate. Although some of these issues were rectified, it appears that the vehicle continues to exhibit additional problems one right after another. In fact, the rear brake light and windshield leak required six separate visits to Ontario Kia due to the fact that Kia could not locate the source of the problem. Although the car is still relatively new, dr. Oh has already purchased a car battery, two brakes, and four new tires (excluding other repair costs not covered by warranty). Over the course of the past month, the air conditioning unit fails to operate satisfactorily. Over the course of the past several weeks, dr. Oh has continued to drive the vehicle notwithstanding the air conditioning problems and the continuous shaking and bouncing issues.
