Buyer Decision: Azera or Amanti
I'm in the market to buy a new car and just saw the Azera. Looks great, roomy, and Hyundai has a great warranty. However, my wife likes the Kia Amanti, which also appears to be in the same size car family with ample room. Can't say I am crazy about the Amanti's styling, but it does appear to have a nice V6 engine and good list of standard features. Both vehicles are in the ballpark for me price-wise; but I don't have any feel on Kia as a company... but do have relatives who have Hyundai's (Sante Fe), and seem to like them. A big positive for me is quietness -- I don't like a lot of road noise in a ride. One thing I have read about the Azera (in the forums) is that there has been noted a "clunk" noise from several people. To me that is disturbing to hear that occurs on a new car.
I’ve done some spec checking, but I would like to have some comments from people that may have experienced the cars. Appreciate any input anyone can provide relative to the comparison between these two cars.
btw -- if I'm way off-base between the two, go easy on me as this is my first post
