2009 Kia Borrego SUV EX 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Had just traded in my beloved Escape for another when hubby totalled his Vue. Didn't know what to get with so many automakers in financial trouble. He discovered the Borrego and was hooked Unfortunately for him, it had all the features I wanted but didn't get on the Escape so now it's mine. Travel weekly Tampa-Orlando-Tampa and the ride is great especially w/ 6 CD for audio books. Few relatively minor problems include: downhill & ESC changed on their own a few times; SIRRUS reverts to weather channel when mode is changed; hwy gas mileage much less than expected; front passenger seat not as comfortable as drivers; a/c cabin air often unpleasant. Daughter just bought 08 Optima & very happy.

2009 Kia Borrego SUV EX 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Bought this kia yesterday after hearing about the mark downs on 09 models. It stickered 4 33,075 but got it out the door for 26,000! I'm very impressed with this vehicle so far, the interor is very Nice and the look is awsome! The v6 has great power on the highway just Punch it even v8 suv's can't touch it! Only gripe is the low end torque and weird shift points of the automatic but other than that its just what my family needed. Go get one you won't be disappointed!


Best Features

power from v6,clean looks and over all interor layout and features.


Worst Features

better shift points on the automatic and fuel economy could be better but hey its a full size suv!!!

2009 Kia Borrego SUV EX 4dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Have owned my 2009 Borrego for a year and both my wife and I are still amazed at the quality of this car. It replace a 2004 Mercury Mountaineer and other than the automatic placement of personal setting via the key fob it is equal to or greater than the Mercury. Have had NO PROBLEMS since we purchased it. Great SUV, Great PRICE AND WHAT CAN YOU SAY ABOUT THE WARRANTY.

2009 Kia Borrego SUV LX 4dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The 5000# towing capacity is only good if the trailer has brakes. 1650# max without trailer brakes. If you buy one to tow a 3500# trailer without brakes, you will wind up putting out $400 or more adding brakes to you trailer. Don't beleive me? Look at the manual. That's the only place I found it.


Best Features

It is quiet running.


Worst Features

They should state this in the sales literature. When back seats are folded down, they should lay flat and not slant to the back.
