Default Kia Borrego not for sale in Canada anymore?

I just looked on the Kia's Canadian site the other day and it was on there.
Just looked again and now its not on there.
What a shame.
I don't live in Canada but that sucks.

Nope, not on the US site either. If you search it you get a page with a message saying "Good things come and go, take a look at this Sorento, blah blah blah".

When we bought our 09 a month or so ago, the sales man told us they were supposed to bring it back in 2012. We will see....

I think it compares well with other suv's. it is odd that 2009 is the only year sold in the US. how many borregos did kia sell that year? mine is #192xx built in july 2008.

Default The question from Russia. Where is the Borrego?

Hello!
In Russia sales of KIA HP (Mojave / borrego)
KIA Mohave.
The characteristics of the diesel engine made ​​with specificity the Russian market and taxes. The result was a very interesting machine. Especially because its price is 2 times lower Audi Q7 and Mercedes Benz GL350. The people began to take, but then we were caught up in trouble. The car is very bad is going on very bad asphalt. And in our climate and soil, bad asphalt - is the norm. Suspension machine made ​​expressly for the warm America. But the package is installed chic for winter. The mass of stupid technology solutions.
It became interesting.
We look to the U.S., there is no longer on this machine. We look to Canada, and here she died.
What's the problem? Koreans you explain something? What can we expect?
Borrego was sold in Russia with an automatic transmission 8 assists. This lineup of 2012.
In Russia, KIA sells 120,000 cars a year, including Borrego, only 550 pieces.
Why Borrego died in Canada and the U.S.? But please, not rumors! Only official information.
During the earlier thanks.

Few us, but we in striped vest.

Default Death of the SUV



I want to thank the economy and the media for killing the body on frame (truck based) SUV. The price of fuel has increased along with everything else. In Ontario we pay 13% HST tax on every sale and service. Jobs are hard to come by and, for some of us, the ones we have don't have the same pay increase as inflation.

I can understand that it is rediculous to drive an H2 Hummer around, but a good mid sized SUV is not the problem.

I like my KIA. I find that my Borrego has a bumpy ride on bumps. I could only imagine what it feels like to drive on the same bumps at the same speed with a compact car. I can drive off road, pull my camping trailer, and go hunting with my Borrego. I'm not so sure that these car based CUV's could do the same. Does a pickup truck get better gas mileage? No. How about minivans? Not really much better. What about super cars, luxury cars, etc? No.

So why did they stop making the Borrego or why didn't they sell enough? Bad timing? High price? (mind you it's a bargain compared to other SUV's with same options.) Marketing? (The new Sorrento was launched out of Geogia in 2011 - better to sell more of those.) No diesel offered in North America? (what else is new here.) Missing other options that the Mohave has, like power lift gate, height adjustable air suspension, moving foot pedals, more AC vents and controls in the back seats, and whatever else? Answer: All of the above.

If I could trade my EX V8 Borrego for a Diesel Mohave, I would. But for any other SUV, never!

Default Death of the SUV (as we know it anyway)

I agree with you Dwayne. In fact, I wrote a similar piece in another thread about the reason(s) for the discontinuation of the Borrego in North America.
If Hyundai/Kia choses to resurrect the Borrego (the name anyway), it will NOT be the SUV we currently have. It will be a "watered-down" X-over incapable of towing much. What a shame!
I, like you, am planning to keep my Borrego. There was nothing else out there like it for the money when I bought it and now, there's nothing else like it period!

I agree. A fully loaded Tahoe Z71 which my parents would have liked to have easily topped 50 some grand.
A almost fully loaded Kia borrego with the V8 about 30 some grand. Had 30 some miles on it when we bought it. Almost has 10,000. Had it 1 full year and 1 month.
