Just because it was made in Korea, doesn't mean it will have KDM parts on it. Currently, all of Hyundai's vehicles sent throughout the world are made in Korea, except the 2006 V6 Sonota, which is made in Alabama.

I should stick your face in a blender for that. You're lucky I'm lazy.

Re: Hyundai Vin De-coder

This actually came straight out of a little packet I got from Hyundai along with all of our info for the 2006 my sonatas. I didn't know if it would be useful at all, but I thought that if I put it up here somebody might be able to get some use out of it.

Took forever to get it all typed up and underlined though. Luckily I did it while I was at work and we were slow
