Kia Motors America is recalling nearly 22,000 Borrego SUVs because the brake pedal mounts can break during collisions.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says on its website that if the mounts break while the SUVs are moving, drivers would have trouble stopping them and a second crash could happen.

Borregos affected by the recall are from the 2009 model year. They have brake pedals that aren't adjustable.

The SUVs were built from May 2, 2008 to Jan. 20, 2009.

Kia will replace the plastic brake pedal mounts free of charge. The recall will start later this month.

Owners with questions can call Kia at (800) 333-4542.
