We have a 2010 EX V6 Burnt Orange, love the Borrego. We actually found it by accident. On one of our many tire kicking outing we stopped in at the Kia dealer in Halifax, my wife and I took one look at the Borrego and said in unison,''Whats that''. Until that point we had never heard of the Borrego. We were actually looking at the Hyundai Veracruz, only for the 7 passenger seating. As soon as we drove the Borrego, the Veracruz was no longer on our list. My wife drives it more than I do, after driving it on snow covered highways she comented, what did we ever do before we had an all wheel drive. So far we average between 18 and 20mpg which is not too bad for a vehicle with less than 6000kms. The only quirk so far is that the lift gate button on both key fobs seems to be there for looks only. Doesn't matter how many times you press the button, nothing unlocks. Will be on the list for the first service though. Hopefully as time goes by other aftermarket items will become available. We're very happy with the purchase and while others may argue it is probably the most bang for your hard earned buck out there considering all the options that come standard. It will be interesting to see how well it holds its resale value in 5 years.
