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.

Review

I shopped around for a couple of months and this dealership ordered in the color an option combintation that I wanted. So far I am getting about 19 MPG with mixed driving.V6 has plenty of power,but the transmission holds 4th gear too long.The heated seats are great and it drives really well in the snow.I thought the stock tires would be worthless,but so far they do well in winter weather.The ride is a little firm,but softens some with more cargo.The built in trailer hitch and wiring is great and it tows really well.I think mine had been sitting for a while because there was some rust on the chrome lug nuts upon delivery.Overall a great vehicle for the money and a fairly gnarly 4 wheeler.


Best Features

Heated seats,satellite radio.Memory for seats,steering wheel and mirrors.Hood struts,instead of a prop rod.5 full size chrome wheels and tires.


Worst Features

Spare tire and wheel should have a TPS sensor.Improve ride quality and gas mileage.Improve paint quality,quite a few imperfections.

Review

We bought our Kia about 3 months ago and don't regret it a bit. Got to "test" it during a recent snow storm and its four wheel drive capability was incredible. Plowed through over two feet of snow on unplowed highway shoulders and it worked like a champ. Haven't had a single problem with it and really don't expect any. Kia did an impressive job building this. Comfortable ride, nice controls, excellent quality, very quiet, and just enjoyable to drive. Thanks Kia.


Best Features

Build quality solid. Interior low noise levels. Comfortable seats.


Worst Features

Drop Sirius and add HD radio. Rear window retraction would have been nice. Lighted cup holders.
