Say goodbye to the Kia Borrego.The South Korean automaker says the full-size Borrego sport-utility vehicle will not return to the U.S. for the 2010 model year.

Kia had hoped to sell up to 20,000 of those SUVs each year, but the U.S. Launch coincided with high gas prices and the financial crisis.

Only 9500 were sold in the U.S. in the first 11 months of this year.
