Kia offers impressive coverage on all of its cars, including a five-year/60,000-mile limited basic warranty. In addition, the Amanti comes with a ten-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
Kia's status as a new car company and the Amanti's status as a new vehicle mean little reliability information -- the reviewers that do mention the Amanti's track record write that one doesn't exist. But Edmunds does say that Kia vehicles have increased in value because of "much improved build quality, performance and reliability" and points to the company's 10-year / 100,000-mile powertrain warranty as proof.
The lengthy warranty that Kia offers for the 2007 Amanti is on Edmunds' list of pros. The Buick Lucerne, an Amanti competitor, offers a standard 100,000 mile/five-year powertrain warranty and the Toyota Avalon offers five years or 60,000 miles, proving that the Kia Amanti does "dwarf" the competition, as Motor Week found.
