Cool Info. Thanks.
Now I want to go pop the hood open and find where the Engine Number is to check in what plant it was built. To see if it matches Ulsan which according to the VIN is the Production Plant for my Vehicle.

All USA/Canada Venues are assembled in Ulsan plant #3, South Korea.
I circled where the numbers should be, except the VIN is at the base of the driver side windshield. Unless it's under the seat too, I didn't look.
