<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Kia’s 2004 Amanti is the largest four-door ever offered by the upstart Korean brand, and Kia promises it will offer roominess, comfort and safety not found in other Kias. The shape of the four-door is influenced by Jaguar and Buick; inside its sweeping instrument panel has touches of woodgrain trim and chrome. Size-wise it stacks up against biggies like the Toyota Avalon and Chrysler Concorde. Electronic braking distribution, brake assist, traction control and electronic stability control all will be available. A 3.5-liter, twin-cam, 24-valve V-6 engine with 195 horsepower is mated to a five-speed automatic.

KIAs might be OK for the under $15K crowd but anyone stupid enough to buy a "luxury" KIA is wasting their money. Why buy this POS when for the same price one could buy a low end quality car (Toyota, Honda, etc.).
The Korean cars all have this cheap look about them, safety is never their priority and after about three years they look like total crap. KIA should have stuck with making Mazdas under license because at least then they weren't so badly designed.
