DETROIT (WWJ) – Kia Motors is recalling nearly 22,000 Borrego SUVs because the brake pedal mounts can break during collisions.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says if the mounts break while the SUVs are moving, drivers would have trouble stopping them and a second crash could happen. Only vehicles from the 2009 model year are affected.

Kia will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake pedal mount, for free, berinning this month.

Owners with questions should contact Kia Consumer Assistance Center at 1-800-333-4542. For more information, customers may also contact the nhtsa vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
