archurban, you need to check the facts before coming here with those statements. As HavasuPaPa suggests, go read the NHTSA report before commenting. Safety had ZERO to do with pulling the plug on the Borrego in the USA. Hyundai/Kia got cold feet after gas prices almost doubled here. The Borrego was competing in an already crowded SUV market. After the gas price hike, all SUVs lost market share.

The Borrego hit the US market at exactly the same time at gasoline hit $4 and even more in CA, IL, and NY.

I got my Borrego 2011 version from a guy here in Saudi Arabia. It's called Mohave here. Just went on a trip n covered some 3000+ KM in 4 days and feel very happy with the car. My wife n kids are very very happy. They converted the rear into flat bed and wife with 3 kids was easily sleeping. Great car for long journey. Loved it also in the desert as it has 4 by 4 drive both HI n Low. Wish if you guys can get in your respective countries. The only drawback is if you drive fast 150+KM an hour, the fuel Co consumption is bad..
