The car is fantastic. lots of speed. it does not feel safe in speedy curves though (waiting for someone views in order to make better. Should I change the absorbers to sport type?)

Sometimes, I have a indication on the info center (system engine control failure. Anyone knows what is it? My email is cvassilios@hotmail.com

I've lost the manual. If anyone could offer one in English I would appreciate that.

Not good support in Lancia's garages. Engineers do not have much experience on this car because is rare.

Very powerful. Comfortable for long trips. Not very good in cornering. Cheap on the highway expensive in the city in terms of consumption.

For that error, check the airflow sensor and oxygen sensor. Have luck.

I bought a Lancia kappa 2 litre turbo built in 2000, the last year of manufacture, from a dealership. The car was previously owned by Fiat and used as an executive car. It had 2800 kilometers when I acquired it in 2002. Driving it, for almost five years, has been a remarkable experience. I often tell people it is the only perfect car that was ever made. As fast as a sports car, as big as a limousine, it is both a family car and a fun car as well as being beautifully designed and engineered. It is a spacious five-seater in which you can see the speedometer needle swing past the 250 kms/hour mark. It drives splendidly, but requires respect and care because of its power. If I had any criticism it would be that there could be less accelaration in first and more in third or fourth. It is a pity this great model was not continued longer.
