The big bodied hauler from Kia, the Borrego, will soon be recalled due to an issue with the braking system. On certain models equipped with non-adjustable brake pedals, the assembly may not be strong enough to withstand the impact of a crash. If in an accident, the fiberglass composition surrounding the pedals can break away in an event where the Borrego stays running which would sever the linkage connection. If this occurs, a SUV could lose its ability to stop and unless the emergency brake was applied, the Kia could roll unwontedly towards its next accident.
So far, Kia is investigating approximately 21,912 Borregos for the issue. Model years affected are 2009 trucks manufactured from May 2, 2008 through January 20, 2009. As mentioned before, only the SUVs with non-adjustable pedal assemblies are at risk. To remedy the issue, Kia will have certified dealerships replace the brake pedal mount and do so at no extra cost to owners. Notifications will be sent out throughout June of this year.
