Recall Alert: 2009 Kia Borrego


(Cars.com)

Kia is recalling 21,912 model-year 2009 versions of the Borrego SUV because of problems with the brake pedal mounts, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were built from May 2, 2008, through Jan. 20, 2009, and are equipped with non-adjustable brake pedals. (You can check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb.) These vehicles use pedal mounts made of fiberglass, and they could break off in an accident, leading to a loss of braking ability and an increased risk of injury. If this occurs, drivers should apply the parking brake to stop the car.

Kia will notify owners later this month, and dealers will replace the affected parts for free. Owners can call Kia at 800-333-4542 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
