Kia Amanti Problems

Accelerator Position Switch May Fail and Cause Sluggish Acceleration

The accelerator position switch may fail intermittently resulting in sluggish acceleration or lack of power.

Software Update Available Which May Correct Transmission Issues

Reprogramming the transmission control module with the latest Kia transmission software may fix abnormalities in the automatic transmission and erroneous transmission-related Check Engine Light illumination. Software updates are commonly most effective on newer vehicles. Higher mileage vehicles may exhibit a similar symptom caused by a component failure. However, whenever major transmission repairs are performed the transmission software should be checked and updated as necessary.

Engine Misfire Due to Faulty Ignition Coil

An engine misfire may develop due to a failed ignition coil. Our technicians tell us one coil is used for each cylinder. If one fails, often times another is not far behind. It may be worth considering replacing all the coils if a failure is encountered.

Kia Amanti Reviews

When I first bought my Kia I fell in love until it crashed into a Bel Air Market Pillar in front of the store at full speed while trying to park and did $5,230.00 worth of damage because of a faulty sensor that causes the car to accelerate on its own. What if I had been at a stop sign and there had been a child in the cross walk. Do you people at Kia know what kind of danger you are putting pe...
Talk about sticker shock!!! The Kia Amanti is designed like everyone is a millionaire. I have only owned my Kia since July of 2013. The car is really a beautiful car. Maintaining it is another story. I just took my Amanti in for a tune-up at a local repair shop and was given an estimate of $429.00 for spark plugs and new wires. After my heart started beating again I had no choice but to make an...
I Bought an Amanti here in Brazil. I'm the first buyer. Now after 50.000 km my car is having Engine Noises. And for 3 years I'm trying to solve a problem that we are having with the breaks. Every time we break the car we can feel a click. Do you know does candy cans where you have to press the middle of the lid to open the side? It is just like that click.
