Since its birth, Kia Borrego, also known in some markets as Mohave, has been known as a very good SUV that was launched in a very bad time! And by bad time we mean early 2009 when the world’s economy was in its worst condition. Obviously in that condition with high fuel prices, the last thing you can expect people to buy is a big thirsty SUV!
So even its good value for money and above the average quality and ride didn’t help with the sales, even in its homeland Korea. Now Kia has announced that they are not going to bother updating this model for 2010, in fact they are not going to do anything about it! They say that the car’s future is uncertain. So you can read between the lines that Kia just wants to sell their current inventory of Borregos and just drop it off the production line.
It’s a shame because Borrego is a good car. But on the plus side, you can expect to get some sweet deals on brand-new Borregos which will be sold as 2009 model! Kia is already offering $3,000 in cash back and some other discounts, you can learn more about it by contacting your local dealer. Just take into account that depreciation will be steep!
