Pros

Smooth, powerful engines; quiet, refined interior; comfortable seating; towing ability; strong value


Model Highlights

The Borrego is offered in two different well-appointed trim levels, LX and EX, both of which are available with a V-6 or V-8 engine and rear- or four-wheel drive. Both engines are modern all-aluminum designs, smooth, and powerful; the 3.8-liter V-6 makes 276 horsepower, while the 4.6-liter V-8 produces 337 horsepower.

V-6 models have a five-speed automatic transmission but V-8 models upgrade to a six-speed auto; both transmissions. Fuel economy ratings are quite close between the two engines, with highway ratings of 20 mpg and 21 mpg, respectively, for the V-8 and V-6.

The Borrego performs well for the types of activities that people would purchase a rugged SUV for, such as off-roading to a camping spot or towing a heavy boat trailer. The 4WD system isn't completely averse to slippery roads though; the BorgWarner Torque-on-Demand system electronically sends torque to the wheels that have the best traction. It also includes a low range gearing for the toughest situations, along with two electronic aids, downhill brake control and hill assist control, to help maintain traction on steep, slippery slopes. When properly equipped, tow ratings range up to 5000 pounds with the V-6 and 7500 pounds with the V-8.

Despite the serious truck capability, the Borrego has a ride that's quite well damped, albeit firm, thanks to a front double-wishbone and rear multi-link suspension arrangement. Stabilizer bars help tighten up handling response around tight corners.

Inside, the Borrego is refined and quiet for such a large, boxy SUV. Wind noise is well muted, and special rubber mounts for the body help cut vibrations and rattles. Three rows of seating are standard, to accommodate a total of seven. The rearmost row is quite cramped and only for children, as is the case for most vehicles this size, but the second row has plenty of headroom and legroom. It's a very comfortable, luxurious interior overall, with well bolstered front seats, perforated leather upholstery and a second-row that can slide fore and aft to aid access to the third row. Both of the rear rows fold flat to allow a long, continuous cargo space and 97.6 cubic feet of cargo space, although the loading floor is higher than most other modern car-based designs.

Like nearly all SUVs nowadays, the Borrego comes standard with electronic stability control, which can help prevent the loss of control and possible rollover on slippery roads or evasive maneuvers. Side and curtain airbags are also standard. A back-up warning system, a feature not always available on utility vehicles, is standard on the Borrego, as are anti-lock brakes.

LX trim is the lower-priced of the two, but it still comes well equipped, and includes air conditioning, power accessories, cruise control, keyless entry and a six-speaker CD/MP3 audio system. The EX trim adds more convenience and luxury items such as power front seats, dual-zone climate control, steering-wheel audio controls, leather trim and a garage-door opener. A Limited Edition package also brings a smart key system, upgraded gauge cluster, power adjustable pedals, Bluetooth hands-free and chrome trim.


Model News

The Borrego is an all-new SUV that rides on a completely new body-on-frame platform. It's aimed at traditional SUV buyers who need towing ability as well as modest off-road capability. The Borrego represents two firsts for the Kia brand: Kia's first V-8 engine, as well as its first six-speed automatic transmission.


Value Writeup

The Borrego enters a crowded field of more truck-like mid-size SUVs, including the Ford Explorer, Nissan Pathfinder, Toyota 4Runner and Chevrolet TrailBlazer that are gradually losing favor to more passenger-friendly crossover utility vehicles. However the Borrego has exterior styling that's more modern than these rivals. The Borrego has a body-on-frame layout that helps make it as tough and tow-friendly as the best, with a class-leading 7500-pound tow rating, yet it has a level of refinement and quiet comfort inside that's unmatched by most of its rivals. Price itself is a strong selling point for the Borrego; it offers more standard equipment than the competition at a similar price, which can make it quite the deal for those who want a loaded vehicle.

Summary
KIA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2009 BORREGO VEHICLES, MANUFACTURED FROM MAY 2, 2008, THROUGH JANUARY 20, 2009, EQUIPPED WITH NON-ADJUSTABLE BRAKE PEDALS. CERTAIN PEDAL MOUNTS MAY HAVE A FIBERGLASS COMPOSITION THAT ALLOWS THEM TO BREAK OFF IN A COLLISION WHERE THE IMPACT HAS NOT IMMOBILIZED THE VEHICLE, WHICH WOULD THEN ALLOW THE VEHICLE TO ROLL.

Consequence
IF THIS OCCURS, THE DRIVER WOULD NEED TO STOP THE VEHICLE WITH THE PARKING BRAKE OR EXPERIENCE A POSSIBLE SECOND IMPACT, INCREASING THE RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY.

KIA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE BRAKE PEDAL MOUNT, FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL WILL BEGIN DURING JUNE 2012. OWNERS MAY CONTACT KIA CONSUMER ASSISTANCE CENTER AT 1-800-333-4542.

KIA'S SAFETY RECALL CAMPAIGN NUMBER IS SC096. CUSTOMERS MAY CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153); OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
