I loved owning this car and I think you will too. I'm wanting to buy a camper trailer so I am upgrading to a V8 SUV. The car is in full working order with the usual wear and tear for its age (see pictures). I've been the owner for two years and it has treated me very well. I will be sad to see it go. I have a Wiggy Wash membership that carries over so if you buy the car you will have unlimited free car washes until February 24.
Here are some things I love about this car:
The funniest car commercial ever made: https://youtu.be/z_JETwYoHHs
V6 power that still gets 21mpg
The last true mid-sized SUV with a truck-style body-on-frame design ideal for towing, offroading, and durability
Hill Descent Control
5000lb towing capacity I've only a two-snowmobile trailer (~2500lb on two occasions), didn't even feel like the trailer was there.
7-seater perfect for a family or road trip with friends (I don't have any kids so it's much cleaner than most 7-seaters on the market)
DVD entertainment system with a three-prong outlet and auxiliary input so you can easily hook up a Blu-ray or game system to the entertainment screen.
Came standard with a Premium Infinity Sound System which includes a small in-wall subwoofer. Music and movies sound fantastic.
the second and third-row seats fold down flat for extra storage. I've moved a 6-foot tall bookshelf and gone car camping without a tent by just sleeping in the back on a full-sized inflatable mattress.
Sometimes it's nice just having a car that's unique, makes it easier to find it in parking lots. Kia Borregos were only sold in the US in 2009, so there aren't that many around. They weren't popular in the American Market (Kia didn't anticipate the US crossover craze so they were discontinued here). They sold well overseas and are still made/sold today on other continents. This means you get the positives of having a unique car without worrying about the availability of replacement parts.
Notable wear and tear: Torn driver's seat (but has a brand new seat cover with matching upholstery), wheel well skirt is missing, faded paint here and there (Not super noticeable due to the silver color), windshield has a small crack that was there before I owned it and hasn't progressed, cosmetic scratches and small crack from a minor accident (the insurance appraiser verified that there was no damage to the frame). See the photos to see how minimal the damage is.
