Nice looking car, but the quality isn't there. Hesitation when accelerating, quality of exterior is poor, finish is easily scratched or marred. When it rains the rain doesn't run down the windows. Beads up so bad you can't see out the side windows. Have started using Rain-x on my side windows. Can't find windshield wipers that will "fit" the curvature of the window, so they don't clean the window very well. At 3 years and 15,000 miles the air conditioner has stopped cooling. Poor gas mileage
If you can find one now, this is a reliable, powerful, great handling vehicle. We have an LX with AWD. It is great in bad weather and is quite capable in off road situations. The turning radius is super tight, and turns better than a car! Our V-6 is very responsive. It's got plenty of get up and go! Sometimes I forget what I'm driving! This from a guy who has owned multiple high performance V-8 vehicles. It's enough to get you in trouble with the law, if you have a heavy foot! It also feels much lighter than it is. I never considered a Kia before it caught my wife's eye, but after being somewhat skeptical at first, it has proven itself over the years. I'd recommend one of these vehicles to anyone!
The handling of the Borrego is great, while driving you can easily see the road and all the lanes around you. Acceleration is a little slow but once you get on the highway it's very easy to speed without even knowing it. There Is plenty of leg room on both back seat rows, however with older children they don't have a lot of space if seated three in the same row. The AC isn't very strong in the middle seat since there is only one middle vent and the third row does not have any air vents at all. My least favorite part about the Borrego is that there is minimal space in the rear to store or haul anything when the third row of seats is up. The has mileage is decent with this model.
