Hyundai Recall: Sonata’s assembled in Alabama only

By Posted 28 Sep 2010, 14:11

A few days ago Hyundai issued a recall for the 2011 Sonata, we reported that 140,000 vehicles are affected by this recall. There are thousands of Sonata drivers out there who are worried that their vehicle is affected by this latest recall, such as drivers in Jordan.

We can now put those owners minds at rest, as Zawya reports that it is only those cars that were built in the Alabama plant in the U.S. that are affected. The reason for this is because the models in Jordan are built in South Korea.

There are currently 500 2011 Hyundai Sonata’s in Jordan, so none will have the steering problem – so you can put your mind at rest.

We reported yesterday that there is a simple fix for the problem, as it would only take about an hour or so to fix. The worrying this is, this problem was known months ago and has taken this long for the Hyundai to implement a recall.
