Hyundai Sonata Recall 2010 List?

Hyundai is recalling 139,500 Sonata sedans in 2010 because a manufacturing defect could cause drivers to lose control of steering. The recall is expected to begin in October, the NHTSA said on its website. The problem is significant enough that a complete separation could occur, leading to reduction or loss of steering. Hyundaiís spotless reputation for quality just got soiled.
Where can I find a list of the Hyundai Sonata cars included in the recall?

Hyundai is recalling 139,500 Sonata vehicles because of a problem with the steering column, in which "the driver could experience a loss of, or reduction in, steering capability increasing the risk of a crash," the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said.

The recall affects new Hyundai Sonatas built between Dec. 11, 2009 and Sept. 10. Connections in the steering column shaft were either improperly assembled or not tightened enough.

You can check your carís manufacture date on a sticker on the driverís side doorjamb. Dealers will inspect the cars, replace defective parts and update the steering software free of charge. If your car is part of the 2010 recall you are advised to contact the Hyundai Customer Assistance Center at 1-800-633-5151, or the NHTSA vehicle safety line at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153).
