  • Car_man,

    Looking for 24 and 36 month - 15000 miles/year lease numbers on 2009 4WD Borrego EX and Limited models. Can you let me know what incentives if any can be applied to the lease.

    Thank you

    Just purchased a 2009 Borrego EX, V6, 4WD, Luxury pkg for just under $26k after rebates (in DSM area). Salesman was just ok, played good cop/bad cop with sales manager. Really like the car, do NOT like the warranty requirements. They almost require you to do all maintainance at the dealer to keep the warranty good. And they are really expensive.

    It is illegal to require you to have your vehicle serviced at the dealer to keep the warranty. Just keep records of required service. If they give you any trouble send them a letter and copy it to the states attorney's office. See how they respond.

  • Hi dolphin5. Here's the information that you're looking for. Kia's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 Borrego EX V6 4WD with 15,000 miles per year are .00131 and 37%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of an '09 Borrego Limited 4WD are .00147 and 36%.

    Kia is providing a $2,800 cash incentive on leases of this truck.

  • kyfdx, does $26K include all taxes and fees?

    I'm about to pull the trigger on a LX, V6, 2WD, + leather for $25K with rebates, taxes, fees included. Is this a bad deal??
  • eternityz That is not to bad but you could probably get it down another 750 or so.

    Does anyone know if Kia will be marketing a 2010 Borrego in U.S.? There is absolutely no information anywhere. Emailed Kia and got a phone call back from a call center stating they have not received any information either. Also, is it still possible to order a 2009? There are very few V8s left on the lots and none within 300 miles of me!
    Looking for EX, blue, V8, no packages, no running board. Thanks in advance.
  • We just bought a 2009 Kia Borrego tonight and got what seemed like a pretty decent deal. Sticker price (with dealer markups) was $31,745 for a 2WD EX with leather seats and chrome wheels. Walk away price was $24,414 before taxes/title but after the dealer brought the price down and included $3000 customer cash back and $2000 for my trade-in (2001 Chevrolet Impala LS with 176,900 miles on it AND a previous crash record). Dealer was relatively easy to deal with and eager to sell the vehicle....
  • According to insideline.com, "No 2010 Borrego is planned for U.S. production, but production continues in other markets. The Borrego will carry on in the U.S. lineup, but for now dealers will continue to sell 2009 stock."

    I did not see a Borrego in Kia's booth at the LA Auto Show...was considering a purchase, but not sure if it'll be worth it to buy a car that was in the market for just a year in the US.

    Just bought fully loaded EX v8 for $31,640 in Ohio, having it shipped for about $800.
    No nav or chrome wheels. They take off $3000 as incentive and another $1500 because I am changing from a 4Runner.
  • tangmantangman Posts: 127
    Want to consider the v8 Borego since 4runner does not offer v8, but I can not find one in the northwest. Is KIA discontinuing them? When I did a locate, the closest one was in Nevada. Also, anyone out there have a V8 that they can comment on.
  • g0lferg0lfer Posts: 14
    I had exactly the same issues because of no V8 in the new 4Runner. Very few 2009 Borrego V8s around and you cannot order from Kia directly. Most are fully loaded. You can only buy what is on a dealer's lot. I should be getting mine in few weeks and will let the forum know.
  • New Borrego 2009 LX 4WD W/floor mats (no other options) for $22.5K.
    This was after a 3K incentive and a 1.5K loyalty incentive (4.5K).
    I think this is only about 900 bucks cheaper than the national average according to edmunds and automobilemag.com. According to the later, quite a few have been sold for 1,2 and 3 K less than I paid. My attempts to get a better price locally proved fruitless.

    I also, got 5K trade-in for a 2005 Chrysler T&C TOURING, with 125000 miles.
    It was the last Borrego they had left.
    I think the trade I could have gotten $6K private sale so 5K trade in seemed good to me.

    I have had my 2009 Borrego for a week. EX, V8, power everthing, leather, no nav, no chrome, sunroof, heated seats, Bluetooth, no back up camera, no rear entertainment. Searched in vain locally and had to buy through a broker from dealer in Ohio. Delivered to my door on large vehicle transport truck. When it was off loaded, it would not start and would not jump start. Had to call Kia for free towing to dealer who replaced battery. Drop down sunglass holder defective and needs to be replaced too. Otherwise, I am very pleased. Paid $31,640 plus $760 transport. Every bit as good and in some ways better than 2010 4Runner (no V8).
    My random thoughts:
    Too soon to figure gas mileage but prob about as listed.
    Good sound, esp via Sirius/XM.
    Bluetooth working well; others say sound is good, just a little echo-y.
    Rear view mirror buttons can be programmed for garage door and 2 other remotes-nice.
    Presets for steering wheel, outdoor mirrors and seat works well.
    Comfy front seats, heated too. At 6ft 3in I could use a touch more leg room even with seat way back.
    Center console prohibits your right knee from relaxing to the right.
    Generally quiet with road noise and other cars.
    Fog lights are nice.
    Multiple jacks for rechargers, i-pod, etc.
    Instrumentation logical.
    Slow to gear up from a full stop (saves gas?), but does not lack power when you floor it.
    3rd row seats should be an option. Rear cargo with minimal room back there unless the seats are down flat. Should have fabric on their backs because they will probably scratch with luggage.
    Small storage space on floor of rear is nice. Has some of jack parts.
    Can access fuel tank from the side of rear wall. Jack inside opposite rear wall.
    Adjustable mid seats for position and reclining are nice. Same for drop down arm rest between the seats. Enough leg room.
    Back up warning beeps are helpful but only in general distances.
    Automatic 2 wheel to 4 wheel drive is nice and smooth changeover.
    Running boards - I dislike, but are not removable. Seem narrower and I can step over them without always rubbing pantleg on them.

    So, time will tell whether it will hold up. Service manager at Kia said Kias since mid 2006 have been very reliable and much better than the Jeep/Chrysler vehicles when he worked there. He sees hardly any Borregos, but then they did not sell a lot of them.

  • The last car I had was a 99 4Runner SR5 before I traded it in for a new Borrego. I shopped around for a month and I never could find a deal that was close to what the Borrego offered for the price. Heck, the new 4Runner SR5 was out the door $32k and some change (and that's with little options). So needless to say, never thought I would say this...I am an owner of a KIA. And the car is awesome. The ride is smooth, lots of room, power. I have read some reviews that stated lots of noise when going over rough roads and that does remain true but its not all too bad. That being said, it is sad that they aren't bringing them back to the US next year. It is an amazing SUV. Here is how my experience went.

    New 2009 EX Limited 4x2 V8 out the door after $2500 trade = $24488

    It is the typical limited package that includes everything except the DVD player. Nav, chrome, you name it, it has it. I just can't believe that the dealer worked such a deal out. He will be earning my business again in 3 - 5 months because we will be buying the new Sorento for my wife. Never again will I say I got a $39,000 for $24,488.
  • I'll keep it nice and simple:

    Copperhead paint scheme, luxury package, 17" chrome wheels, bluetooth and crossbars. Bought it in mid Nov '09, paid $27,772...seems to be the national average these days. The dealers first offer was 28,900+.

    We all know you can find waaaaaaaaay better wheels, but i didn't plan on getting any ever, so i just stuck with the ones that were already there, makes it look just a bit better. Bluetooth seemed cheesy at first, but new laws in OR make it necessary, so turned out to be nice. I still get a lot of crap at work for owning a KIA, especially since Borrego translates to "yearling lamb" or "sheep", but that sure beats getting into a $40,000 "big name" SUV that has the same features.

    Could you give more info on your purchase. I have a quote on a 2009 EX V6 sticker is $30,390 my quote is under $23,000. Your deal seems incredible. I would rather have the V8. You say out the door (tax, tag, dealer fees,) for $24,488. Where did you get this deal.
