When comparing the V8 Borrego to other SUVs of this size, it is the best bang for the buck. We picked up a 2009 Borrego EX V8 which was driven by a KIA Rep for 6 months. He put 8,000 miles on it. The sticker price was $37,415 we paid $24,700 plus tax and title. Overall, very pleased. Strong acceleration, luxurious accommodations, great build quality. The suspension on ours is not to stiff for us. All in all, the best vehicle that I have ever had to date.
I was coming out of a Leased Chevrolet Silverado and wanted to find a good buy on another lease. This was the ticket. I love the ride, pick up and the towing capability. I have had the SUV for a year and have yet to see another one on the road. I like that. I test drove the V8 but it has some lag in the take off. The V6 doesn't have any lag. It will put you back in your seat. I don't drive it hard just nice to know that the power is there when you need it.

Turn signal sometimes wont move to center position to turn off. Down hill light has come on twice and call dealer they said it could be a tail light out? Turned off car and turn back on light went off. Glad to see they are putting the carpet on the third row seat backs for free.
After tracking down some that a dealer (3 hours away) still had on the lot, purchased it and drove 2000 miles in the mountains on vacation. Powerful, comfortable and easy to navigate. Tight turn radius and the other features make a Borrego better than what Ford, Chevy, Nissan, etc. have to offer. Have read that kia is bringing it back for 2011, an Oct/Nov 2010 release, hope this is true because this is truly a fine SUV. Warranty makes this a slam-dunk!
Back-up warning, power, interior comfort, safety features
I have purchased many cars everything from an Audi to a Toyota. I have to say that this Borrego is the best purchase ever. The ride is great (for a truck style frame). Comfort is that of a luxury car. All of the options this Borrego comes with is unbelievable. We looked at everything from a 4Runner to a Acadia. I saved over $10,000 by purchasing this Borrego. The warranty can't be beat. I even got the dealer to throw in the 100,000 Mile bumper to bumper warranty for free. The turning radius is also unbelievable.
